SBS DUAL SINTER UNIQUE COMBINATION - DYNAMIC RACING CONCEPT
DS-1 & DS-2 = DRC As a result of intensive test work, SBS is now the only manufacturer of racing brake pads that offer a dynamic concept where DS-1 and DS-2 can be used individually with different performance or in combination DS-1 / DS-2 on left/right brake disc with the purpose of fine- tuning brake performance according to the rider’s individual brake preference.
In connection with the test work for the 2018 racing season, the idea for the SBS DRC Dynamic Racing Concept came up. Now with 2 available Dual Sinter compounds with different performance, but with similar wear and temperature characteristics, it became possible to fine- tune and adapt the brake characteristics to the individual rider by combining the DS-1 and DS-2 compounds on the same motorcycle. Testing in IDM German Superbike Example of racing tests with IDM German Superbike Champion Ilya Mikhalchik, who from his time racing in the Superstock 600 was really pleased with the SBS DC Dual Carbon and its “smoothe” initial bite and progressive brake feel. When switching to a heavier, andmuch faster Superstock 1000 with standard braking system, Ilya did not feel he had sufficient braking power with DC Dual Carbon. It was therefore obvious to switch the Superstock 1000er directly to the DS Dual Sinter DS-2 which has the same characteristics as the DC Dual Carbon, but at a higher level. Ilya was immediately happy with the DS-2 and was able to recognize the feel of DC Dual Carbon, but after many laps and further optimization on suspension and engine / electronics, Ilya mentioned that he was now missing a bit more “bite” at the start of braking, which in the race language is called “initial bite”. To obtain the desired initial bite, the Dual Sinter DS-1, which has very powerful initial bite, was tested. After a few laps, Ilya came in and announced that “it is ALL too powerful, it affects the fork and bike set-up too much”, then DS-1 in the right brake caliber was replaced with DS-2 and Ilya was sent out to try the combination with DS-1 on the left brake disc and DS-2 on the right brake disc. Only when the session was over did Ilya come in with the comment “this is exactly how I want the brakes to work”, a combination of DS-1 and DS-2 and thus a fine-tuning of brake performance by combining performance characteristics of the two DS Dual Sinter compounds.
