PAGID RST 5 - DESCRIPTION
Nearly 30 years ago, the very first PAGID Racing rally materials were introduced to the international rally scene. Driven by world rally legends Carlos Sainz and Walter Röhrl, winning event after event, they have become an integral part of our history. In our anniversary year we are going “back to our roots” and have put this motto into action. We developed a material that will change the way we brake in rally racing.
Tested in 10 rallys in the 2016 Spanish Tarmac Rally Championship, Cristian García has won 8 and secured the championship title two rallys ahead of the season finale with the new RST 5.
The RST 5 is tailor-made for the challenging requirements of rally sports. Due to its optimized thermal management, it provides ideal performance from low temperatures to extremely high temperature conditions. Thus, it has a great cold ramp-up behavior. Its ideal heat transfer guarantees that the generated heat stays in the brake pad and does not move into the brake fluid, making the RST 5 highly fluid fade resistant.
The recovery properties of the material also provide assurance of a constantly ideal operating temperature. With its high initial bite and generally high friction level the RST 5 is a new rally material that perfectly manages the balance between high aggression and prevention of wheel spin, providing the driver with a feeling of reliability and outstanding performance, even under the most demanding conditions.
PAGID RST 5 - APPLICATION RANGE
Specifically designed and developed for rally racing. Comes for a variety of different pad shapes established in rally sports, especially WRC and Group R.
