Carbotech XP12 Brake Pad (Pre-Bed Option) | Legend Wilwood Caliper
Now Offering Pre-Bed Brake Pads:
Never worry about bedding in pads at the track again. Carbotech has a proven system to pre-bed in brake pads for a true bolt on and go brake change. For a small additional fee to your Carbotech brake purchase, get your pads Pre-Bedded to extend their life and improve performance.
What is “Pre-Bedding”? Contrary to popular belief, bedding is NOT the transfer of material to the rotors. That’s material transfer. Bedding is actually the process of burning off some of the chemicals in the pad material itself. When you bed pads at the track, you need to get them up to temperature high enough to start burning off those chemicals – while simultaneously transferring the material to the rotor. Having the pads pre-bedded burns off those chemicals in advance and allows quicker material transfer to the rotor, extends the life of the pad and sets the pads up to be immediately at full braking potential.
Pre-Bedding is performed directly by Carbotech Performance Brakes in their manufacturing facility.
Carbotech brakes give you:
- Assured stopping power
- Increased overall performance and handling
- Excellent modulation and release characteristics

- Non-corrosive dust
Another highly successful XP™ series compound with an excellent initial bite, torque and fade resistance over and above the XP10™ compound. XP12™ has temperature range of 250°F to 1850°F+ (121°C to 1010°C+). The XP12™ has that excellent Carbotech™ release and modulation that has made all other Carbotech™ compounds so successful. The XP12™ is more rotor aggressive than XP10™, but compared to the competition the XP12™ is still very rotor friendly. XP12™ is NOT recommended for use as a daily driven street pad due to possible elevated levels of dust and noise.
