Carbotech Brake Pad Set – Elise Exige Standard Front – XP8 Compound


SKU: CBT-CT109L-XP8 Category: Brand:


Set of 4 brake pads, fits all 2005-12 Elise and Exige models with standard front brakes (not Cup/2-eleven big 308mm AP front brakes)

Carbotech’s brake pads are well known throughout the racing community for their amazing braking capacity, easy modulation and high heat tolerance. You’ll also enjoy longer pad and rotor wear than you’ll get with most of the other pads out there.

For the 2005-12 Elise/Exige many racers like the XP10 front / XP8 combination; for more severe applications with very grippy tires and/or increased power you may want the XP12 front / XP10 rear combination.
