Brembo, global leader in braking systems for street use and racing, announces the introduction of two new products designed to meet the needs of the most demanding Racing customers. At the 26th edition of Autosport International, scheduled for 14 and 15 January 2016 in Birmingham (United Kingdom), Brembo presented a 4-piston forged monobloc caliper and an innovative Rally Lightweight disc.
Brembo is once again focused on GT car requirements, which this year will have an improved aerodynamic according to the new regulations and confirms its leadership in this Racing application with the introduction of a new forged M4 caliper.
This new monobloc 4-piston rear caliper is the first of a new family of forged calipers for Racing use. In the coming months Brembo will also present the 6-piston version for the front with innovative technical features and a similar family feeling.
Brembo’s long term experience in monobloc calipers contributed to the new caliper design that stands out for its optimised geometry and guarantees a sensible weight reduction if compared to the previous models.
The new forged monobloc rear caliper is interchangeable with the 4-piston forged calipers already available on the market.
Spotlight also on the renewed Rally Lightweight disc
On rally cars there are limited components on which it is possible to work by regulation with the aim to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle and so there is a strong focus on the brake system, where Brembo identified new areas for improvement.
Following this path Brembo has managed to further reduce the weight of its Rally disc by 6% with the Lightweight design optimization.
In 2013, a first step of such development reduced the weight by 20% and now with the new geometry simply increases further.
A constant and continuous improvement has always been a prerogative of Brembo that it is also confirmed in Rally.
The new Rally Lightweight disc guarantees a significant weight reduction and also an innovative cooling design.
The development of this solution allows an effective and more efficient cooling, really useful for races where brakes are always hardly used.
Alongside the standard 300 and 355 mm diameters, there is now a brand new 370 mm disc, suitable for fast and heavy stages on tarmac. The 370mm disc already complies with the 2017 rules.
