About DP Brakes

DP was born out of Dunlop’s need to raise capital through sell-offs in the late 1970s. It was among the pioneering British firms responding to the economic circumstances they found themselves in by closing or selling off divisions in order to survive.

To this day sintered metal still provides state-of-the-art braking performance. The world’s major motorcycle manufacturers have recognized the benefits of sintered metal. Today, over 95% of motorcycles produced are fitted with sintered metal brake pads as original equipment.

When the brand was first bought from Dunlop Holdings in the 1980’s, the company focused on sales and marketing, rebuilding a new distribution network featuring businesses from within the motorcycle industry rather than Dunlop worldwide subsidiaries, and on new product R&D.

The team includes another former Dunlop man, Frank Edwards, as Technical Director. Edwards boasts nearly 40 years in braking development work, and between them, they have done much to further mature the technology of metal compound friction material applications for motorcycle disc brakes in the course of the last twenty years
