Selecting the Right Brake Pad Compound
Point Karting has "Red Carbon" and "Galfer 1054" pad options for Birel rear brakes. Depending on your braking preference, select the pad option that's right for you:
- Red Carbon 222: Suitable for most drivers, the Red Carbon pads provide a progressive yet strong braking feel across a variety of brake rotors and driving styles.
- Galfer 1054 Black: For those who want a very aggressive braking feel, the 1054 black is the choice! Made from an organic-based medium, the Galfer 1054 is a softer pad. This means increased pad wear, but also increased stopping power and immediacy to the braking system under hard braking. Trust the 1054 if you are someone who really likes to stand on the brakes hard into corners!
Note: **Point Karting strongly recommends double-checking the provided dimensional diagram to ensure you order the right pads for your kart! If you have questions, reach out to us, we are happy to help.**
