Winmax Trackday Brake Pads

Winmax W2 Brake Pads

The Winmax W2 is another non-metallic road pad compound but with a more sports driving focus. Like the Winmax W1, the Winmax W2 brake pads have no significant dust issue or noise levels. The Winmax W2 pad compound improves driver pedal feel with improved initial bite, high friction at low temperatures and improved performance at higher temperatures. As with the W1 pads , the Winmax W2 will give excellent brake pad and brake disc life compared to most brands. These brake pads give a similar performance to the Endless MX72 and Project Mu B Spec.

The main characteristics of the Winmax W2 brake pad range are:

  • Road, Autocross, Gymkhana use
  • Road style refinement - low noise, dust
  • Longer pad and disc life
  • Friction coefficient of 0.32 - 0.35 over a working temperature range of from cold up to 500ºC

Winmax W3 Brake Pads

The Winmax W3 is a versatile dual purpose brake pad compound that can be used on both road and track. This is a more track focused compound than the W1 and W2; giving improved braking control even from cold and increased high temperature stability. It is made using a low metallic composition that gives an ideal balance for those that need a daily driven brake pad, and do not want to compromise on performance when driving hard or when venturing on a trackday event. The Winmax W3 brake pads are most similar in performance to the Ferodo DS2500, Endless MXRS/MX72, Project Mu HC+, PFC 97, Hawk HP+ and Pagid RS4-2

The main characteristics of the Winmax W3 brake pad range are:

  • Road / Track Combination, Autocross, Gymkhana use
  • Specifically targeted for braking control
  • Friction coefficient of 0.34 - 0.37 over a working temperature range of from cold up to 600ºC

Winmax W4 Brake Pads

Winmax W4 brake pads are similar to the W3, using low steel ingredients, but with an even more precise braking control and consistent bite. The Winmax W4 brake pad compound is suitable for longer circuit sessions where higher temperatures are found. Winmax W4 brake pads will lap consistently longer than W3 brake pads whilst retaining a similar feel. The Winmax W4 is the first of the range where caution is needed for daily drivers, as this compound needs a working temperature above 50ºC. Cold braking does feel slightly loose so need to be warmed up. It will wear both discs and pads at slightly higher rate vs the Winmax W3. These brake pads are similar in performance to the CL Brakes RC5+, Hawk BL, Cobalt XR5/CBR and Pagid RS14B.

The main characteristics of the Winmax W4 brake pad range are:

  • Track Day, Competition, Autocross, Gymkhana use
  • Good initial bite
  • Specifically targeted for braking control
  • Friction coefficient of 0.37 - 0.40 over a working temperature range of 50ºC to 650ºC

Winmax W5 Brake Pads

Made with high steel ingredients but perfectly balanced for large circuit racing, the Winmax W5 brake pads are suited to dedicated trackday cars plus circuit race and rally cars. The Winmax W5 compound gives a constant braking co-efficient across the temperature range giving excellent braking modulation. This allows the driver to make minor braking corrections without upsetting the cars balance. The Winmax W5 will also give low brake pad wear. This is a good upgrade for people using Endless CC38/ME22, Project Mu 777, Ferodo DS1.11, Cobalt XR3 / XR4 and Pagid RST3 / RS14.

The main characteristics of the Winmax W5 brake pad range are:

  • Competition, Road Racing, Rally use
  • Made for full race conditions where high heat tolerance and precise brake controls are necessary
  • Friction coefficient of 0.40 - 0.43 over a working temperature range of 100ºC to 750ºC
