Big names are switching to GPFAX
Since its launch, leading teams and racers, such as BMW Motorrad, have instantly gained impressive results by switching to the revolutionary GPFAX compound (especially when installed in their bikes' original/OE calipers - as opposed to upgraded race calipers - which is sometimes mandatory in certain race classes, including Superstock and Supersport).

GPFAX Nürburgring Nordschleife Lap Record
"These things are brilliant. ...the level of feedback is what I consider to be optimum, simply vary the lever pressure until the front tyre and fork springs push into the ground the required amount. So that's 10/10 for feel. Retardation is so good, I have been able to go back to the Wavy discs which, with less surface area, still stop just great... and the Wavys are a good chunk lighter.
Their performance when cold and when warming up is [naturally] less than when up to temperature, but the brakes remain safe and consistent system with nothing untoward that could catch out the unwary and no special care seems needed, which is absolutely not the case with [some] other pads.
EBC GPFAX is the choice..."

First female in the UAE Sportbike Championship gains GPFAX confidence
"I used to lack confidence in braking late, however, these GPFAX race only brake pads have a great bite to them. I improved my lap times by six seconds in my first race, big confidence boost from having grippy brakes, was able to push my braking markers further as the day progressed which helped drop lap times."

Oulton Park Racer ditches old carbon pads for GPFAX
"I used them for the first time at Oulton Park last weekend, and I am very impressed. I was using carbon pads before but had had enough of always [having to be] making sure they were hot [these pads work from absolutely stone cold - HPS].
...the new EBC GPFAX pads have a great feel, great first bite - hot/or cold. That's what I really want from a pad, from cold out of the paddock into 1st corner [knowing] they work amazingly straight away and stay consistent all through the race to the end no fade etc.
I'll be staying with these pads for the future!"

Tim Hastings - British Supersport Racer
With the all new GPFAX compound, EBC said to us they had developed a track-only pad which is not only far in advance of anything they have made before, but also one which in testing bettered all competitor sintered or carbon race pads.
After using these ourselves the HPS team agrees with this. We have found the "In-Stop" feel to totally linear and feedback at the lever is excellent, i.e., the more you squeeze the more you get (which sounds obvious - but so many pads do not perform on track in totally very "linear" and consistent manner) making brake modulation easy.
Another nice thing about this new material is that it does not "Glaze" as each layer refreshes itself under use gradually, giving good life but with perfectly stable long term predictable braking.
We have found the pads also bed in quite quickly and even from first application with decent discs the brake effect is high (EBC say around 0.6, building over the first 2-3 laps to around 0.7), and then consistently staying there for the life of the pads.
"The one thing I struggled with [on the RC8] was the brakes - they just didn’t have the feedback and feel I was expecting…
I replaced the pads with EBC’s GPFAX race pads for a back-to-back test.
After following the break-in procedure, the GPFAX were a great improvement - loads of power, with a more organic feel and plenty of bite. They were the pads I was looking for all along.."

If Carbon based pads were in use before GPFAX pads are installed, to gain the full braking effect and to prevent and judder, the disc must be fine sanded with abrasive paper or wire wool to remove the grey glaze that carbon pads lay down (this is a normal when changing to any sintered pad from carbon).
