SBS, long known for its aftermarket braking components, has moved into the clutch market.
The Denmark-based manufacturer now sells standard and upgrade clutch friction plates and steel plates for wet clutches, as well as standard and upgraded components for dry clutches. According to the company’s press release (see below), SBS is selling components for both street bikes and dirt bikes, from the 1970s to today. Talk about a big entry into the market!
SBS enlarges the product range with clutch kits
The new clutches from SBS Friction A/S are developed to match a wide range of models from the 70s and up. The program covers all kind of bikes from sport, street and touring to off-road and cross.
Product Manager Claus Rønnemoss, SBS: “It has been extremely important for us to make a simple program where it is easy to choose the right clutches. Therefore, we have made an easy item structure, an easy to use catalogue and it is always easy to find the right clutches for almost any bike online at sbs.dk”
CSO Christel Munk Pedersen, SBS continues: “SBS is known for the high quality brake pad program and of course the clutch kits are developed ensuring high performance, lifetime and comfort. From being a brake pad manufacturer we now see ourselves as a complete brake system supplier as we not only offer brake pads, but brake discs, brake shoes, brake pins and now also clutches in our product range.”
The program consist of standard and upgrade clutch friction plates, steel plates and standard and upgrade single plates dry clutches. The standard version is always an OE replacement, whereas the upgrade version is made from materials offering improved performance.
The standard clutch friction plates are made of organic friction materials and resistant to stress and overheating, whereas the upgraded version is made from carbon/paper materials and is very reliable on race tracks.
The standard single plates dry clutches are made from organic friction materials and the upgrade version from para-aramid synthetic fibers, thereby ensuring a higher friction coefficient and no damage by overheating or if covered in oil.
All steel plates are made from special wear and deformation resistant steel and have the same dimensions and thickness as the OE product.
The complete clutch kit program is now part of the SBS product range.
