It will be available this coming August 2012, and is sold through or available at major bookstore chains nation- wide. Off road racers are familiar with DP Brakes and their lineup of dirt bike, ATV, and UTV brake pads. They developed the original sintered brake pad and are industry leader in sin- tered metal braking technology. DP has expanded and updated their line of sintered brake pads and stainless steel rotors. Team UXC Racing’s, Michael Swift, said, “I ran the new DP Brake Pads on my 2012 Can Am Outlander UTV recently. I was very impressed, especially under the extreme pres- sure I put them to. What surprised me the most was that I had ap- proximately 75 percent of pad life left after the race. Before DP pads, I couldn’t even finish a race on a stock set of brake pads. We now run DP Brakes exclusively”. “Not only does the customer ex- perience longer lasting performance, but our brake pads are non-abusive to the rotor. In addition, they are very quiet.
