Ferodo’s DS2500 racing brake pads represent a new generation of friction material that’s low in compressibility, ensuring a firm pedal while providing great disc and pad life. It features the moderately high bite and solid fade resistance of a track pad, with the relatively low dust and noise levels of a street pad. When used as a street pad, it can produce some squeal on certain vehicle platforms.
As shown in the graph, the DS-2500 material has a friction level of approximatively 0.50 which remains constant at any speed and at any temperature that the brake system is working at.
These pads were developed with characteristics that make them perfect for track days, including a consistent coefficient of friction (0.50) at any temperature, providing very predictable braking and great pedal modulation.
During aggressive driving the DS2500 is known for its flat torque curve, which means as temperatures go up, the response through the brake pedal remains consistent. If you drive aggressively on the street, do some canyon runs, autoX, and maybe some light track duty on street tires, the DS2500 is tough to beat.
+ Race developed
+ Performs equally well on heavy and light cars
+ 20% less pad wear than competitive products
+ Minimal bedding-in, supplied ready to use
+ Disc Friendly
+ Consistent friction level with changing temperatures and speeds to give optimal pedal modulation
+ High friction level at low temperature (good cold braking)
+ High friction level at very high temperatures
+ 35% less compressability than competitive products (pedal feel)
+ Less noise for increased driving comfort
Ferodo DS2500 is a club race pad that can be used on the street and for light track use. This compound produces some noise on the street, but retains good cold friction, and has an MOT of around 1,000 degrees F. It also has 35% less compressibility than competitive products, giving it very good pedal feel and modulation characteristics. DS2500 has an average friction level of approximately (0.50) which remains constant at any speed, and at any temperature up to 1,000° F.
