Default Winmax Brake Pads by Brakes Direct


About Winmax


Established in 1984, WINMAX CORP. is one of the leading performance and racing brake parts manufacturers in Japan. As a subsidiary of OEM supplier MK Kashiyama Corp., Winmax has delivered a combination of racing passion and meticulous engineering for decades. Used by top motorsport teams in road racing, rally racing, gymkhana, autocross, and time trials, Winmax brake pads have been rigorously tested in competitive racing environments throughout the world.


Product Design

Using a knowledge database that covers everything from OE factory pads to formula racing machines, Winmax begins all brake pad development in its research and development facilities. By blending various types of raw materials based on the information accumulated over years of quality engineering, Winmax is able to develop friction materials that meet the requirements of performance, effectiveness, life, noise, vibration, and feel.

Testing and data collection is also vital to the Winmax R&D process. Using an enclosed brake dynamometer with a sealed environmental chamber, a variety of brake pad simulations are able to take place under controlled conditions. By evaluating the braking performance under a variety of driving conditions, Winmax is able to test, develop, and improve brake pads until they meet the strict standards required before being sold to enthusiast drivers across the world. Winmax is a certified ISO9001, ISO14001, and ECE Regulation No. 90 brake parts manufacturer.


R&D Testing

Brake pads are important safety parts, especially to enthusiast drivers, and it is core to the Winmax philosophy that all parts sold are required to have high reliability and be of high quality. Using laboratory data and regular feedback from motorsport teams, our engineers carry out constant development in order to develop products that meet our exacting specifications. During the manufacturing process, engineering teams will carry out required evaluations of appearance, dimensions, hardness, surface roughness, and adhesion of lining (using a shear strength tester).

Proven Performance

Winmax brake pads have proved themselves across the globe! International wins include the 2012 Asia Pacific Rally Championship with Brakes Direct backed Australian WRC Ace Chris 'Atko' Atkinson!


Winmax is also the pad of choice for long time motorsport legend 'Monster' Tajima in his insane 900hp Pikes Peak Hill Climb car, which he piloted to a 6th sucessive win with Winmax!

Gotta say - we used the WinMax W5s in our GC8 on the weekend (Experts Cup) and they were mint. Great pedal feel (Wavey tells me) and worked fine up to the rotors glowing red.

Super impressed, way better than the Intima things, better than the Pagid RS4-2, and better than the QFM Comps. Starting to realise that it's all about pad feel and getting what you pay for...

Have now used both the Winmax W5 and Winmax W6.5 on our GC8 Wrx Track Car.

Competing in Street Cars WA, our GC8 track car uses Subaru 4 pot and 2 pot brakes with DBA 500 and DBA 4000 rotors respectively. Previous use of brake pads got a limited life span. WInmax W5 was first tried and performed faultlessly and pulled me up for 2 track meets (approx 36 laps per race) No brake ducting either!

For the recently run Torque Trophy I got new pads and tried W6.5 as the W5's were out of stock Torque Trophy is a much longer race meet and the pads performed great with only fluid fade effecting me during the last few laps of the last race!

Great pad and longevity of these pads and how very little they are harsh on rotors is a great testiment!
