- Brake vibration and noise can be significantly reduced with Akebono brakes
- If you're tired of the dust and noise from cheap brakes, upgrade to Akebono friction materials
- You don't have to sacrifice your rotors to achieve good stopping when you select Akebono brakes
- By carefully combining organic and metallic brake compounds, Akebono brakes can provide short stopping distances without increased rotor wear
Your vehicle's brakes are one of the main trouble spots as far as noise, vibration, and harshness are concerned, and Akebono brakes intend to do something about it. Between the clamping forces on the rotor, the movement of the pads in the caliper, and even the runout of the disc, your non Akebono brakes instill some unpleasant resonances into your vehicle's structure. Since reducing noise, vibration, and harshness is a huge priority for vehicle manufacturers, Akebono brakes has teamed up with the OEM manufacturers on a number of cutting-edge hardware projects and developed new Akebono brakes that seriously reduce the amount of NVH induced by calipers, rotors, and drums. As a result, the OEMs love Akebono brakes, but you don't have to buy a brand new car to get Akebono brakes on your car too. Retrofit Akebono brakes make a great choice if you have an older high-performance car that just doesn't have the kind of braking performance you're accustomed to, and has high NVH levels too. The addition of Akebono brakes along with Akebono brake friction materials can provide the stellar combination of stopping power and quiet operation that you've been seeking. Best of all, Akebono brakes aren't priced into the stratosphere like some of the competitors, so for a performance value, be sure to explore Akebono brakes for your ride of choice.
Akebono Brake Pad
There's a Holy Grail in brake pads, and the Akebono brake pad seems to have found it. We're talking about high friction with low rotor wear—two apparently mutually exclusive design goals, or so everyone thought. But with an Akebono brake pad, you can achieve exceptional stopping distances in an organic pad that actually has a minimal amount of abrasive metallic material in the compound. So, it stands to reason that an Akebono brake pad lasts about forty miles, right? Wrong. In test after test, the Akebono brake pad had as good or better wear characteristics than the premium semi-metallic competitor, proving the Akebono brake pad was both stable in high heat situations and that it could maintain its friction characteristics mile after mile. All right, then, the Akebono brake pad must generate dust like a volcano. Nope, wrong again. The Akebono brake pad actually has an extraordinarily low dust production rate—it would be low for a stock pad, but the Akebono brake pad has truly exceptional dust generation for a high-performance friction component. With all these extraordinary features, it stands to reason that the Akebono brake pad would sell itself. But just in case it doesn't, we're here to tell you that if you want new friction materials that seem to defy the laws of physics, you'll love having an Akebono brake pad set on your vehicle.
