Pagid RS44 Racing Brake Pads (18mm) - F87 M2 Comp/CS Racing (Rear), Brembo F40 Caliper
Very popular club and HPDE pad with low-medium friction and smooth characteristics
Pagid RS44 Orange brake pads are formulated for iron discs on F87 M2 Competition (rear), M2 CS Racing (rear), and Brembo F40/F50/B/H/GT1/Monobloc P Caliper calipers.
The RS44 compound is a low metallic resin bonded material containing steel and composite aramid fibers. This compound is known as very user-friendly with smooth modulation and release amid a low-medium friction level (lower torque than the Yellow compounds). This works very well as an beginner-intermediate student class or as a mid-level race pad. Friction ramps up as temperatures rise but the Orange pad is not as aggressive as the other Yellow race pads.
Pagid RS44 Characteristics
+ low-medium friction level
+ good fade resistance

+ moderate initial bite with excellent modulation
Front and rear brake compounds should be closely matched to maintain brake balance. Never upgrade one axle and not the other.
