By General Posts

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida. (February 8, 2021) – Progressive American Flat Track is pleased to announce it has renewed its partnership with SBS Brakes to remain the series’ Official Brake Pad through the 2022 season.

A global market leader and established motorsports powerhouse, SBS Brakes first united with Progressive AFT in an official capacity ahead of the 2018 season. Its intense focus and commitment to the sport of dirt track racing has been reconfirmed with the signing of a new two-year agreement.

“Progressive American Flat Track has enjoyed a great relationship with SBS for a number of years and the expertise they bring in braking systems has been a major asset to both the series and competitors,” said Michael Lock, CEO of Progressive American Flat Track. “We are grateful for SBS’s continued support of our sport in 2021.”

Originally founded in Denmark almost six decades ago, Scandinavian Brake Systems A/S became the first company to produce aftermarket disc brake pads. Renowned for its innovative approach to research and development, including ECE R90 quality certification and embedded NUCAP NRS technology securing a mechanical and indestructible bonding of compounds, SBS Brakes who recently was acquired by the Brembo Group, continually pushes forward in its use of new materials and technologies.

Those advancements have been repeatedly proven out in the unforgiving realm of motorsport competition, as SBS Brakes has scored dozens of world championships across a wide-range of two-wheeled disciplines, including WorldSBK and MXGP, in the process.

“It means the world to us that we can continue to support the world of powersport with this sponsorship of Progressive American Flat Track. In the light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we strive to continue bringing communities together and support riders and teams, so that we also have motorsport events to enjoy when we overcome the pandemic era and return to a somewhat new normal. Our brake pads are used by top road and offroad racers worldwide, and they have proven to be superior in performance for cross country flat track as well.” said Christel Munk Pedersen, CSO of SBS Friction.

The 2021 Progressive American Flat Track season is scheduled to kick off on March 12 and 13, 2021 with the Volusia Half-Mile doubleheader event at Volusia Speedway Park on Friday, March 12 and Saturday, March 13, 2021. Tickets for this season-opening extravaganza are on sale now at

Upgraded brake pad with mechanical bonding for off-road use handles extreme heat

Leading motorcycle brake pad manufacturer, SBS Friction, now introduces an upgrade of their RSI compound with an indestructible mechanical bonding

The upgraded RSI compound has been tested for several years and is developed with professional MX-GP rider Shaun Simpson: “Braking is also quite an important part of riding. I like to be in touch with the brakes and I ride a bit on the rear brakes, so it puts a lot of pressure into the system and the heat is just unbelievable. SBS has managed to handle this perfectly and I feel great on track using the upgraded RSI.”

The RSI product range is a performance upgrade choice of MX-GP World Championship, MX-GP and MX2 teams and riders. It is a sintered compound formulated for high thermal stability, powerful and predictable fade-free performance

CSO Christel Munk Pedersen, SBS explains: “The upgraded SBS off-road compound is dedicated to riders who ride professionally or in dry conditions” and she continues “This upgrade is part of our commitment to going towards 100% NRS Safe in our whole product program. The NUCAP Retention System (NRS) is the most advanced mechanical attachment technology with a zero-failure rate – just where we want to be”.

NUCAP CEO Montu Khokhar comments: “The braking environment demands components that are capable of standing up to its violent vibration as well as incredible heating and cooling fluctuations. NRS Safe attachment is a mechanism that does not fail.”

The SBS Off-Road program also includes the SI compound for hobby use and the PSI for ATV/UTVs.
