Carbon Brakes take a lot of braking force to get heat into them hence why you'll never see them on road bikes as the speed and braking forces applied on the roads isn't enough to make them work.

Hope that clears that up for you.

Thank you for clarifies it. On additional note, carbon brakes have a very narrow operating temperature window and only grips in hot, dry conditions. Once damp, cold, or rain condition sets in, they are virtually useless - which is why MotoGP bikes use steel brakes when racing in rain.
