The essence of Brembo technology
Brembo High Performance discs are designed and tested to work best in conjunction with specific pads and combine consistent performance in extreme usage with superlative lightness.
In addition to substantially increasing brake power, the materials and unique manufacturing processes used also ensure absolute consistency and extreme resistance to prolonged thermo-mechanical stress. Brembo High Performance discs deliver uncompromised performance in all conditions, eye-catching racing looks and a significant reduction in weight compared with the original component.
The SuperSport and T-Drive lines consist of floating discs with steel rotors and hats machined from billet aluminium available in the same dimensions as the original equipment or larger sizes.
Developed with the precise goal of offering all owners of the most popular European and Japanese hypersports models maximum performance both on the road and on the track. The discs of the Supersport range are available with a larger than standard thickness of 5.5 mm. These are fully floating discs consisting of a rotor in tempered martensitic steel (capable of resisting extreme thermo-mechanical stress) and a hat machined from billet aluminium alloy. The two parts are joined together by 10 fastener studs in true racing style. The distinctive characteristic of a floating disc is that the rotor is not fixed to the aluminium hat - in other words, it is free to move on the studs. This configuration significantly reduces disc stress, reducing disc wear and improving heat dissipation, while also allowing the rotor the freedom to deform.
Supersport discs are available with a rotor measuring 34 mm in width and 5.5 mm in thickness, and are fully interchangeable with the original components without any modifications.
Developed from Brembo's experience in MotoGP and SBK, the “T-Drive” disc introduces a new assembly system between the rotor and hat consisting of eight “T” shaped pins on the disc and eight recesses on the hat, which eliminates the need for fastener studs. As a result of specific studies into process and machining tolerances, this unique configuration transfers braking torque more effectively. T-Drive ensures greater resistance to thermo-mechanical stress, especially in the particularly extreme conditions of racing.
The “T-Drive” permits both radial and axial float and reduces the overall weight of the disc, offering a significant advantage in terms of handling. The rotor has been optimised by both reducing width (making the disc lighter) and redistributing the cross-drilled holes (with varying diameters). The hat also contributes substantially to the end result: made from CNC machined light alloy, the hat has been specifically engineered for lightness and stiffness.
T-Drive discs are available for the most popular hypersports models with a rotor measuring 32 mm in width and 5.5 mm in thickness. These discs are fully interchangeable with the original components without any modifications.
