Power Stop Launches New Sport Performance Brake Pads

Posted: Wednesday, October 1st, 2014

Power Stop LLC announced that its new Z23 Evolution Sport Brake Pads will become available in October 2014 at authorized online retailers.

The carbon fiber-ceramic matrix pads resist fade up to much higher temperatures than OEM pads, due to their unique material formula. Additionally, the Z23 pads are virtually noiseless, owing in part to the low-dust carbon-ceramic compound and in part to dual rubber layers covering constrained steel shims.

“The Z23 pads really resist fade up to high temperatures, even during extreme driving,” said Arvin Scott, CEO of Power Stop LLC. “We consider these pads ideal for customers who want the highest performance from their vehicles without sacrificing everyday driving reliability.”

Power Stop’s prime performance in the aftermarket brake parts market and strong reputation for quality will position the Z23 pads for success. Similar to Power Stop’s Z26 Extreme Performance pads, the Z23 pads will be included in Power Stop’s top-selling 1-Click Brake Kits. While the Z26 pads best suit high horsepower cars and big wheel upgrades, the Z23 pads best suit daily-driver, medium horsepower cars. The Z23 pads’ carbon fiber/ceramic matrix compound resists fade up to 1200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Sold as a set, the Z23 pads will include ceramic brake lubricant in each set. Premium stainless steel hardware will be included where applicable. Similar to Power Stop’s other performance brake pads, the Z23s are thermal-scorched for an easy, fast break-in process. For the convenience of its online retail partners, as with all of Power Stop’s products, the Z23 pads will not feature MAP pricing.
“We look forward to capturing yet another part of the burgeoning brake parts market!” Scott said. “Drivers who want race-quality stopping power during daily driving will love the Z23 Evolution Sport pads.”
