Video: EBC Ultimax Pads Review
The EBC Ultimax brake pads, or simply called the EBC black pads, are meant to be a stock replacement pad. These pads are compatible with your hardware already located on the vehicle. The Ultimax pads are Premium Quality British made disc pads which are made to exceed the performance of any existing OEM pads.
EBC Ultimax range are a long lasting high friction pad designed for non-sport urban daily driving on all Sedans, SUV and Light Truck. The Ultimax Brake Pads use a blend of synthetic aramid fibers and metallic filament to create an extended life brake pad that is vibration free. The EBC Ultimax pads have pre-fitted anti-noise shims combined with a special center line slot that will keep braking noise to a minimum.
The Ultimax pads come with a 1 year or 10,000 mile warranty that protects against any EBC factory defects.
Highly recommended for daily commuter vehicles that just need a budget friendly pad that performs much like original equipment pads.
Not for sustained performance use.
Very high quality pad for the money, but keep in mind it is meant to match the characteristics of Original Equipment pads so it won't really increase braking performance over stock.

One of Many EBC Facilities Located World Wide
Since 1978 EBC Brakes has become one of the world leaders in the braking industry. You can choose from a variety of EBC Brake Pads and Rotors that are made to fit a ton of vehicle applications. EBC is known for producing the largest range of brake pads and rotors in the world. EBC has multiple distribution centers all around the world with two facilities that actually manufacture EBC Brake Pads and Rotors, one in the UK and the other is located right here in the U.S. EBC has built a reputation for using only the highest quality materials for their pads and rotors, because EBC knows you don't build a successful company by cutting corners and producing a product that they wouldn't use themselves. EBC is dedicated to using state of the art materials and manufacturing techniques to produce a high quality product designed to promote a safer driving environment.
EBC Brake Pads are ahead of their time because they use a unique Aramid fibre material that puts it's competitors cheap steel fibre bases to shame. The use of Aramid fibres deliver a higher degree of flexibility in compound design, this enables EBC Brakes to produce a quiet and long lasting range of pad compounds that can improve stopping distance, reduce rotor wear and thereby greatly reduce brake dust. Also all of the EBC Brake Rotors are given a corrosion resistant powder coat finish. This finish not only resists corrosion but it also helps prevent water from accumulating inside the pad. The Picture to the right shows EBC Greenstuff Pads getting the powder coat applied.
Most EBC Brake Rotors are manufactured in the UK and Italy, they all of the rotors are machined and finished in either the UK or the U.S. After the rotor is machined and finished EBC inspects and puts the rotor through rigorous tests before it can leave the factory. EBC Sport Rotors have actually recently been awarded the much accredited TUV testing approval and the resulting German ABE number that signifies the highest in quality for parts sold into Europe. If EBC Rotors can withstand the torture of Autobahn Speeds (which are unlimited) we think it is safe to say you can be confident that EBC Brake rotors will deliver on your car, truck or SUV.
