ME & N series

ME20

ME & N series

ME20 is a semi-metallic compound, developed for racing and rally. It is a step up initial bite and is more “straight-forward” with regards to brake power. Originally developed for BTCC Super Touring cars where you have high traction afforded by suspension set-up and tire compounds. The pedal feel and brake power is excellent and equal across the speed range with an easy modulation in all instances. With ME20 it is possible to perform very hard and late braking into corners. As with the friction and bite the ME20 is a step up in heat resistance compared to the ME22 and it has shown a very good stable brake performance at high disc temperatures over 650 °C. The wear characteristics of both pads and discs are low, and for cold weather and wet conditions it retains the same excellent resistance to water fade.

Specifications

  • Friction: 0,35-0,40μ
  • Heat levels: 150-800°C

ME22

ME & N series

ME22 is a further development of our popular ME20 compound. ME22 has better cooling properties then ME20 and can in some cases lower the overall disc temperatures compared to ME20. ME22 has the same basic properties as ME20 and is suitable on both race cars and street/trackday cars.

Specifications

  • Friction: 0,36-0,42μ
  • Heat levels: 150-800°C

ME25

ME & N series

ME25 is a substantial step up in initial bite from ME20. The pedal is easy to modulate for a good feeling between the fast response and hard brake power especially at high-speed braking. The reaction of the compound is excellent, which enables the driver to attack a corner with a higher speed. At lower speeds the driver only needs a swift touch of the pedal to create a good deceleration and reaction. As usual the compound is water fade resistant and works excellent during cold conditions. It also has a fast response time in reaching working temperature and does not give the driver any unwanted surprises. The brake balance is very good at different speeds. ME25 is suitable for drivers that likes the ME20 but would like a step up in initial bite.

Specifications

  • Friction: 0,38-0,43μ
  • Heat levels: 200-800°C

N35S

ME & N series

N35S has a slightly higher initial bite than ME25 and represents straighter line between initial bite and brake power. It is still easy to control and a special characteristic is that driver can initiate light braking with a slight touch of the pedal and then directly continue into a hard braking manoeuvre with high pedal pressure if it is requested. The lock up tendencies is low and it has the same easy modulation as ME25. N35S has proved to be very well balanced in both wet and dry conditions, which has made it very popular in rallying for both tarmac and gravel. It is also excellent for race cars with a very high traction and down force. This compound is very much liked by drivers that prefers not to use such a high pedal pressure and would like to have a quick initial bite and in that way keep the overall speed up and a good rhythm of driving. The high heat resistance is the same as ME20 and ME25, and so are the low disc and pad wear characteristics.

Specifications

  • Friction: 0,42-0,52μ
  • Heat levels: 300-800°C

N39S

ME & N series

N39S shares many properties with N35S but has a step higher initial bite and better performance while modulation is still very good. Also, this compound gives a quicker response and builds up the friction exceptionally well starting at cold temperatures. N39S has excellent
temperature resistance and will show low pad wear.

Specifications

  • Friction: 0,42-0,52μ
  • Heat levels: 0-850°C

N40S

ME & N series

As the name implies N40S falls in-between N35S and N45S. Also part of the “new generation” compounds the N40S shares all of its basic properties with the other compounds of this range, but gives a midpoint with concern to friction values and bite. This further enhances the possibility to give every driver the specific compound best suited to his or her needs, and get the best feel for the brakes without sacrificing performance.

Specifications

  • Friction: 0,45-0,52μ
  • Heat levels: 300-800°C

N45S

ME & N series

N45S is a compound with a very high initial bite. It is a good step up from N35S and has an exceptional response. The brake power itself is also elevated so the difference between initial bite and maximum brake power is shorter than N35S. The modulation is still good and controllable, and gives a good brake balance. The compound is suitable for high-speed race cars with a very good traction and down force, but has also shown itself to be usable to achieve extreme braking power in WRC Rally cars. Even in wet conditions it has a great pedal feel, and it lets the driver keep a good rhythm of driving. The very high initial bite enables the driver to stay shorter periods of time on the pedal, which is also a good way to reduce disc temperatures. N45S is like the other compounds, gentle to the discs, has a low wear and does not create heat cracks or other disc problems.

Specifications

  • Friction: 0,48-0,55μ
  • Heat levels: 300-800°C

N49S

ME & N series

N49S is a newly developed compound with a faster friction reaction and better heat properties than N45S. The initial bite is very fast and responsive even from very cold temperatures, N49S is very stable at very high temperatures.

Specifications

  • Friction: 0,38-0,50μ
  • Heat levels: 150-850°C

N50S

ME & N series

N50S is a very high initial bite compound with fast friction build up and instant realese properties, it’s a very responsive compound with great modulation, and is suited for high grip and downforce applications.

Specifications

  • Friction: 0,51-0,59μ
  • Heat levels: 150-850°C
