Within one year of their launch in 2004 Double-H became the standard by which all brake pads for streetbikes were judged because of their long lasting and powerful brake effect.
Double-H pads claimed their name from the industry standard gauge for measuring friction levels on brake pads. The grades of brake pads available is an interesting topic. They range from E,F,G through to H rating, each grade being a 20% step up in friction delivery. A pad only generating an E friction grade would be totally unsuitable for use on any Motorcycle, most of which now use G or H graded brake pads.
EBC Double-H claim the highest H title in two ways, hence the expression Double H as they are H rated cold... and H rated when hot. This means no brake fade.
These ratings come from the US FMVSS safety standards group and to test for output friction you have to submit product to them for grading. This testing group is now know as AMECA.
So not only do EBC Double-H pads last well and brake well, they do not fade.
Feature the HH friction rating –
the highest in the industry
Provide maximum brake effect
and last twice as long as
