WHEN EVERYTHING IS ON THE LINE... VORTEX IS THERE.

Every brake pad that goes out our door is important. But in high-performance applications, quality and reliability are paramount. The world’s fastest and highest performance vehicles deserve a brake pad that keeps pace with the rest of the vehicle. We are invested in the racing and performance community and understand what it takes to build a brake pad that delivers, whether its on the drag strip, autocross course, off-road or just on the street. 

At VORTEX, we apply performance technology to our fleet product. Police and other public safety vehicles are some of the most important vehicles on the road today. Entire communities depend on those who protect us to be there when we need them. Taxis, medical couriers, rental cars, limos, public works…they keep the world moving everyday and face the most demanding of drive times. Many companies making or importing brake pads may not consider these performance applications, but we think the people doing the job daily may disagree.
