SBS TAKES THE LEAD IN ISLE OF MAN TT

DOUGLAS, UK. The Isle of Man TT 2024 has come to a thrilling conclusion, with the world’s fastest riders battling it out on the legendary mountain course. A key factor in the success of almost all podium finishers was the superior braking performance provided by SBS Friction A/S, who also in 2024 was the preferred brake supplier for the event.

SBS has a long history in international road racing that started back in the 80s with ceramic-based brake pads. Over the years, SBS has developed and complemented its product range with sinter brake pads and technological integrations, such as NUCAP NRS bonding technology, developed in close collaboration with top teams and riders in international championship classes. To this date, SBS racing brake pads are the preferred choice, also in Isle of Man TT.

The 2024 edition of the Isle of Man TT was a spectacle of speed and skill, with several highlights that will be remembered for years to come. Michael Dunlop’s 29th victory was a testament to his skill and experience that has continued his family’s TT legacy. Davey Todd’s double win – and his first overall – showcased his result-orientated strategy and determined execution.

– When racing at the high-speed straights between villages and in the mountains on the Isle of Man, all brake system components are repeatedly cooled and heated. When braking with high pressure for the turns, brake system parts reach extreme temperatures to affect thermally the overall brake performance. SBS DS Dual Sinter compounds are designed to perform at these extreme shifts from cold to warm temperatures, giving our riders a reliable and consistent brake lever feel and power to lap the complete 60 km circuit of Isle of Man TT at a record pace, says Allan Østli, Race Manager at SBS.

Other SBS racers and champions Dean Harrison, Peter Hickman, Nathan Harrison, Josh Brookes, Paul Cassidy, Conor Cummins, James Hillier, Davo Johnson, and Ian Hutchinson also statued strong performances, each bringing their unique perspective and strategy to the race. The event showed some impressive lap records, adding to the excitement and intensity of the event.

The Isle of Man TT 2024 was a memorable event showcasing the best of (real) road racing and highlighting the brake system’s intense performance requirements. With the support of SBS Friction A/S and the exceptional performances of the racers, the event was a resounding success. As we look forward to the next race, we celebrate the achievements of this year’s event and the incredible skill and determination of all the racers.

The SBS Dynamic Racing Concept – DS-1 and DS-2 – is a revolutionary approach to motorcycle braking technology, designed to cater to the individual braking preferences of riders. The concept combines the best of two worlds – the strong initial bite and linear in-stop performance from DS-1 and the smooth initial bite and progressive in-stop performance from DS-2. It allows for the simultaneous use of two different brake pad compounds, offering riders a unique sense of control and brake power that can be tailored to their specific needs.
