Advanced Shim Technology
Adaptive One uses 100-percent mechanically attached shims, not loose shims, to maintain shim position. The steel shims are coated with a high-lubricity polymer to dampen noise and vibration. The coating also prevents rust and “sticking.”
Radial Tuned Slots and Chamfers
The radially tuned slots used in Adaptive One eliminate the interference that gases and debris can create between the rotor and friction material. They also reduce vibrations and harmonics that can occur if no slot or the incorrect slot geometry is used where brake pads contact the rotor.
The chamfers also promote smooth contact with the rotor, thus reducing vibration and noise.
Mechanical Friction Attachment System
Adaptive One’s mechanical friction attachment system (where applicable) provides greater shear strength and plate stiffness than other aftermarket brake pads. They eliminate de-lamination, edge lift and corrosion, thus reducing vibration and noise and improving feel.
With Adaptive One, installers do not have to reuse old hardware that may be bent, worn, or damaged in some way. The rubber-coated, nickel-zinc hardware provided (as needed) restores the bracket assembly to its original condition. The rubber-coated side dampens in-plane noise and vibration, while the corrosion-resistant uncoated side provides a smooth sliding surface for the pads.
