1/9/2018

Blank, cross-drilled, slotted or sports discs. You're spoilt for choice, with 4 different Brembo brake disc solutions

​Time flies, especially when you're driving a fiery Seat Leon (5F1) (2.0 cupra non disponibile MAX-Xtra). You've travelled thousands of miles together, so the disks and pads must now be replaced, if worn, to restore the original braking performance of your pride and joy.
Brake disks are a very important part of the braking system of a car, but not all disks are the same, and neither are brands. You'd never buy a TV from an unknown brand, because you'd have no guarantee of its quality reliability, and you have to be just as picky when choosing the best brakes for you car. With over 50 years of experience as a partner to the world's best known car brands, who better than Brembo to give you the best product for your car?
Choose from 4 different options suggested by Brembo to update the brake disks on your Seat Leon (5F1) (2.0 cupra non disponibile MAX-Xtra). To make sure that your new brake disks perform as they should, Brembo recommends always replacing the pads together with the disks.


 

Brembo Original

Undrilled and without slots, Brembo Original disks are the simplest solution for replacing the worn disks on your car with quality products. The secret of these discs lies in the unslotted, undrilled blank rotor surface, which ensures unrivalled comfort while also saving your brake pads.
While some discs may look the same as those fitted to your Seat Leon (5F1) (2.0 cupra non disponibile MAX-Xtra) in the factory, Brembo discs are actually guaranteed to offer precisely the same performance as the original parts.
Brembo blank rotor brake discs may also boast one or more of the following characteristics.
PVT Pillar Vented Technology: your new Brembo disks feature innovative pillar ventilation technology developed and patented by Brembo, which makes them even more resistant to cracking phenomena caused by high temperatures.
High Carbon: the high percentage of carbon in the chemical make up of the cast iron used reduces the vibration and noise perceived on board the car.
UV paint treatment: applied in a solvent-free process to the rotor, outer rim and hat, the protective coating of UV-cured water-based paint ensures total protection for the disk.

Brembo Xtra

If you don't just want to change your disks but also want to upgrade your braking system, these cross-drilled disks are perfect for you.
Unquestionably stylish, Brembo Xtra disks offer responsive, effective stopping power in all braking conditions.
The holes drilled into the brake rotor significantly improve pad/disk grip, giving your Seat Leon (5F1) (2.0 cupra non disponibile MAX-Xtra) precise, effective braking power at the start of braking in wet conditions in particular and at high temperatures. The holes also contribute to keeping the braking system at peak performance by scraping the pad and removing accumulated debris. The holes in the rotor allow heat and gas to escape more effectively, improving performance.
As the cherry on the cake, Brembo Xtra cross-drilled disks also have a decidedly sporty look accentuated by the UV paint treatment.

Brembo Max

If you're looking for performance and style, take a look at Brembo slotted discs.

Brembo Max disks are the ideal choice for the driver who demands responsive power and performance right from the start of braking.
The slots in the rotor surface of these discs reduce the possibility of pad glazing.

Brembo's engineers have come up with another inventive idea, and included an additional slot in the surface of Brembo Max disks which indicates if the disk is about to exceed or has already exceeded the ,maximum safe wear limit.
This allows you to check the state of wear of the disks by yourself and determine when the wear limit is reached and the disks have to be replaced.
