G-LOC Brake Pads

G-LOC Brakes™ was created by racers with the sole intention of providing the highest level of performance friction materials. Their extreme wide range of compounds and pads will cover all uses from daily drivers, AutoX, HPDE, to racing.

The broad range of G-LOC™ friction material formulations will provide the highest performance over all operating conditions. Their unsurpassed modulation/control with a very smooth release is what gives you total control of maximizing your braking ability.

Only G-LOC™ uses proprietary Carbon, Ceramic, Kevlar, and Metallic compound formulations. Unlike the competition, they do not load up our compounds with carbon and iron which are extremely harsh on rotors. G-LOC™ compound formulations are some of the most disc/rotor friendly compounds offered in the world. Each G-LOC™ compound is the result of an extensive and rigorous R&D process that gives peace of mind knowing that they can rely on the consistency and high performance nature of every one of their compounds.

All G-LOC™ compounds are created in a controlled environment where everything from air temp, humidity, water temp, and weight (of each ingredient used) have exact specifications that must be met when a compound batch is created. This process is checked up to 5 times during this process by skilled personnel. The result is a superior and consistent product.


  • Confident braking in all conditions
  • Broad range of thermal capacity (ideal operating range)
  • Increased overall performance
  • Unmatched modulation and release characteristics
  • Better control entering the braking zones
  • Increased brake pad and disc/rotor wear
  • Excellent cold stopping power
  • Less likely to boil brake fluid because of the thermal barrier created with G-LOC compounds

• GS-1 is our high performance street compound.  GS-1 produces very little dust and very little noise, while maintaining excellent initial bite and torque for street use.  GS-1 has been unmatched in the industry for disc/rotor friendliness as well as its longevity. This compounds excellent performance on the street provides incredible braking force without ABS intervention. G-LOC™ GS-1 is not recommended for track use.

• The R6 has been specifically engineered for Autocross applications. An ultra high cold torque compound delivering consistent performance from dead cold. The advanced compound matrix provides an excellent initial bite, high coefficient of friction at lower temperatures along with very progressive brake modulation and release characteristics. The R6™ compound is widely used for street use as well, but this compound will more than likely make noise on the street.  G-LOC™  doesn’t recommend street driving on with R6 due to possible elevated levels of dust and noise. R6 is not recommended for road racing (closed circuit).

• The R8 is a high torque brake compound with a wide operating temperature range.  G-LOC™ R8 is the first of our extensive lineup of racing compounds. Good initial bite along with excellent modulation and release characteristics. Extremely high fade resistance and very rotor friendly. Perfect for track day use with any tire and can still be driven safely to and from the track. G-LOC™ does not recommended R8 for daily use on the street due to elevated levels of dust and noise.

• The R10 has a much stronger initial bite and higher coefficient of friction than the R8.  The R10 compound still maintains our smooth release, excellent modulation and rotor friendliness that have been engineered into all previous G-LOC™ compounds.   The R10 compound leads the industry in disc/rotor friendliness. G-LOC™ does not recommended R10 for daily use on the street due to elevated levels of dust and noise.

• The R12 compound with an excellent initial bite, high and consistent torque, and outstanding fade resistance over and above the R10. The G-LOC™ R12 continues our excellent release and modulation that has been engineered into all previous G-LOC™ compounds. The R12 is slightly more disc/rotor aggressive than R10 but more disc/rotor friendly compared to our competition. G-LOC™ does not recommended R12 for daily use on the street due to elevated levels of dust and noise.
