These high quality brake shoes will fit all 8" rear wheels for Vespas with a single fixing pivot point.
The SIP Premium brake shoes are coated with a relatively soft frictional material, especially when compared to the originals. This special material has higher frictional values and enables an improved deceleration.
Alongside the softer compound, they are also more resistant to fading at the high temperatures attained during use.
These brake shoes remain effective and reliable, even during long mountain-pass descents, when compared to standard types.
They also show a good relative wear to braking performance ratio.
Softer brake shoe material wears slightly quicker than the harder types. In practice though the material on original brake shoes lasts so long that they require replacement due to ageing rather than wear. We recommend the regular replacement of Vespa brake shoes. Tests have proven that the softer composition of the SIP brake material wears at a rate similar to, for example, disc brake pads.
The SIP Premium and Performance brake shoes provide a noticeable improvement and upgrade of both safety and riding dynamics. They are ideally complemented with a set of SIP Performance brake operating cables. The braking power delivered by this particular combination quickly dampens the desire to fit an ugly disc brake assembly.
A great, easy upgrade for original drum brake Vespas!
