The DS Performance range transfers Ferodo’s racing pedigree to the road. A replacement road pad which has the feel of a racing compound but the refinement of a premier OE material. Performance is similar to the DS2500 track pad, but is road legal and is R90 compliant (EU standard for road pads)

The compound combines many of the characteristics found in a pure racing material (high friction, absence of fade) but has improved cold performance, and reduced disc wear and noise. The key features include:

High friction coefficient (0.46 average)
Excellent disc life
Low wheel dust
Racing “feel”
Low heat transmission to calliper – thus avoiding fluid boil

DS Performance is recommended for road and light track day use

Advice for Pad bedding:
When initially bedding brake pads it is recommended to complete a series of applications (braking actions), building from light pressure (x 5 applications) to medium pressures (x5 applications) on a quiet road from slow (initially) to moderate speeds. The applications should not be separated from each other by more than 30 seconds. There is no need for the vehicle to come to rest on each application. Allow the brakes to cool (this will occur during normal driving anyway, but do not, for example, go straight into a steep hill descent as the first use of the brakes) and the pads will be bedded.
