American Flat Track (AFT) has announced a new multi-year partnership with SBS Brakes to become the series’ Official Brake Pad for the next three seasons.
Already a household name in international motorsport, SBS has increasingly turned its attention to dirt track motorcycle racing of late. In addition to its newly-announced status as Official Brake Pad of American Flat Track, SBS Brakes has joined forces with Kenny Coolbeth this season as the multi-time Grand National Champion attempts to reestablish himself atop the AFT Twins presented by Vance & Hines pecking order aboard an Indian Scout FTR750.
“SBS’s achievements in braking technology and their list of partners in the road racing world are very impressive and we are delighted to welcome them as a partner,” said Michael Lock, CEO of American Flat Track. ”American Flat Track is in an exciting era of growth, and now that we feature multiple TT races – where the bikes are equipped with front brakes – the need for a premium series partner like SBS is greater than ever.”
Chris L. Jensen, Brand Manager for SBS North America, said: “For years we have helped riders and teams in the paddock solve brake-related problems. But by becoming an AFT partner, we are taking the relationship to another level. Our brake pads are used by top road racers all over the world, and we found them to be superior in flat track as well.
