only available from NAPA!
Adaptive One Hybrid Ceramic Disc Brake Pads are unlike any brake pad on the market today because the inboard and outboard pad in each set has its’ own specially engineered friction material. This unique formulation provides long-lasting, dust-free, quiet performance that’s seemingly tailored to each driver’s style with coverage focused on passenger cars, light trucks and SUVs.
Unlike traditional brake pads with matching friction that typically involve tradeoffs when it comes to stopping power, low noise and dusting, Adaptive One’s inboard pad is specially formulated for optimal stopping performance, while its outboard pad is specially formulated to reduce noise and dusting. Adaptive One’s unique formulation for the inboard and outboard pads combine the best attributes of stopping power, noise abatement and low dusting, without sacrificing performance.
Each Adaptive One disc brake pad is specifically designed to react differently during the stop by supplying the appropriate levels of stopping performance. So whether the pads are hot or cold, or the driver is aggressive or conservative behind the wheel, Adaptive One provides consistent pedal feel with the best possible combination of stopping power, noise abatement and low dusting qualities.
Helping to provide Adaptive One with a safe and ultra-quiet braking experience is the NRS Noise Abatement System from NUCAP Industries. This patented technology projects teeth (or hooks) from the disc plate into the friction material, locking the two components together and eliminating any chance of edge lift and pad shear between the disc plate and friction a key design element in providing safe and quiet braking performance.
