CL Brakes, formerly known as Carbone Lorraine, have been directly developed from stopping some of the most demanding machines on the planet, including commercial passenger aircraft, military jetfighters, and Advanced High Speed Trains.
CL brakes are a sintered material brake pad, sintered brake pads give stronger and more consistent results when placed against their organic counterparts.
CL Brakes are used in race winning cars, From Formula Ford to Historic F1 single seaters, through to saloon, GT and WRC Cars. We can offer a compound that fits your criteria
All CL compounds have minimal compound compression, this means minimal losses from your brake pedal to the friction surfaces, giving a more accurate and solid feel right up to “lock up”.
You can use our range of compounds to customise the behaviour of your race car, should you need to bias the front to rear balance of your car, especially in the absence of a bias control valve.
Bedding in process is minimal, two or three medium compression stops is all that is needed, combined with CL properties of high retardation even at low temperatures, mean that CL Brakes are very easy and straightforward to use and benefits are instantaneous.
A highly versatile compound that has a wide range of applications, especially if lower brake dust and squeal are a priority. RC5+ are kinder on discs and still offer fantastic stopping power, and are perfect for use with treaded tyres on trackdays. This compound has the the lowest co-efficiency in the range, and can be used with other CL Brake pads to find your perfect level of brake balance without the need of fitting a brake bias.
An outstanding reference point racing pad, amazing levels of grip and feel. Designed for full racing use with either high grip race compound treaded tyres or full slicks. RC6 has also won many fans within the Rally world as this compound offers high initial bite, but retains feel for gravel sections. If you want to win races or set your fastest times look no further.
RC8 & RC8R
Our highest grip compound that offers one of the highest co-efficient available anywhere. A favourite with Tarmac stage WRC cars, World Touring Car, and NASCAR. The RC8R “finned” backing plate option is available in this compound, allowing full advantage of ducted airflow through the brake system.
