Yellow - RS19:
The RS19 is a favorite of test drivers on the Nurburgring. RS19 has very good modulation and release thanks to a medium friction compound. It has moderate bite with excellent wear levels so it makes for a good beginner pad or a pad you can drive to the track with. Yellow pads are often used in extended endurance races (sometimes without pad changes). It has good fade resistance up to 600°C (1112°F). The combination of friction value, fading stability and low wear rates on pads and rotors is unmatched. A multiple winner of Daytona 24h, Le Mans 24h, Sebring 12h, Spa 24h, and Nurburgring 24h.
Yellow - RS29:
An evolution of the RS19 endurance pad designed for more advanced drivers. This compound combines the outstanding wear rate of the RS19 with a slightly higher coefficient of friction and initial bite. RS29 also features improved hot fade resistance over the RS19. In addition to the endurance racing, this pad will also be found in GT and VLN classes and Touring Cars.
The RS14 is a very aggressive pad, trading low wear characteristics for outright torque and performance. It has a high friction level for an aggressive initial bite and better fade resistance compared to the RS19/RS29. Modulation and release are slightly down compared to the Yellow compound but still comfortable for most drivers. Because of its aggressive compound, more wear to the rotors and the pad itself is expected. RS14 has excellent fade resistance up to 650°C (1,200°F). It's quick reaction and high torque make it a favorite for very fast cars with downforce such as prototypes, Indycar, formula, Super GT, and some Touring Cars.
