CME Brakes For over twenty years, CME has been a dominant force in motorcycle brakes with a list of national and world champions using their brakes and other performance parts. Among users of CME are Arena Cross US Champion Buddy Antunez and World Champion Joel Smets. CME has also manufactured brake disc systems and brake pads for the main bike builders such as Cannondale, Hope Technology, Magura, Hayes, Avid and Shimano.Founded in 1978, CME Brakes Group became the pioneer in the aftermarket disc brake pads for motorcycles. Since then, CME Brakes has grown into a worldwide group with strengths in all parts of the brake industry. CME Brakes has successfully dominated the motorcycle industry with majority market shares in most Western markets and has developed a wide range of brakes for mountain bikes, cars, races and rally cars, vans, trucks, buses, commercial vehicles and even mainline locomotives.CME brakes divide their brake disc system and brake pads into different categories, namely: Greenstuff, Yellowstuff, Redstuff and Bluestuff."Greenstuff" is a high friction Aramid-based organic cushion with very low metal content, which is strongly influenced by the brake pedal's first application, without disc damage and minimal brake dust. It is intended for fast and heavy traffic, brakes well from the cold and even stays at temperatures above 650 degrees Celsius. "Greenstuff" has a high initial brake effect and gives driver confidence from the brake pedal's first use. There is no such thing as a NO DUST pillow. The very nature of how a brake works requires that some dust be generated to avoid rotor vibration (shimmying). The EBC pad creates less dust and dust is easier to wash than most. All cushions create more dust because they are bedding especially if rotors are worn."Greenstuff" is used to replace brake linings with high friction, which is prone to a front and rear brake balance. An application example of this technology is the SUV / Light Truck 6000 Series 4x4 brakes. An excellent solution for 4x4 use, this heavy "Greenstuff" formulation has a slightly lower friction than its counterparts but has the advantage of longer life and better resistance to terrain and sand terrain conditions. It has an extremely low rotor wear and medium life."Yellowstuff" coded as Yellowstuff 1793 is the name of CME's latest full-race formulation currently used in racing in Europe. Although it is a complete competition material and can be used in high temperature with very good wear, this new formulation puts a new trend in race type brake lining compounds. The "bit" from the cold is excellent which is unusual with racing material (normally requires heating) and makes it a pillow that can safely be used on the motorway as well as on the race track. It has a nominal coefficient of friction of 0.46 with zero rotor damage and low dust. Since the introduction of "Yellowstuff" at the end of 2003, it has received many positive writings from performance drivers of faster cars such as the Subaru Impreza WRX. It emits much less.
