3/20/2018

Some prefer blank discs, others cross-drilled or slotted, while others still want a genuine sports disc. Brembo offers 4 different brake disc lines for the Ford Fiesta IV (JA_, JB_): there's something for everyone!

​​Time flies, especially when you're driving a fiery Ford Fiesta IV (JA_, JB_). It's time to change worn disks and pads to put the braking system of your Ford Fiesta IV (JA_, JB_) back into peak condition.
While these components may all seem the same to the unenlightened, there are actually huge differences between discs and between different manufacturers too. Some of the brands you see on the market today are new, but others have been around for decades and continue to surprise their customers with ground-breaking innovation. No other brand can boast the same experience and success as Brembo, with over 50 years of partnerships with the world's most prestigious carmakers.
Brembo, a brand you can depend on with a catalogue covering an incredible 98% of all cars on the road today, has picked 4 solutions for replacing the brake disks on your Ford Fiesta IV (JA_, JB_). Brembo recommends always replacing the brake pads together with the disks. When changing the pads, on the other hand, it is not necessary to change the disks as well.


 

Brembo Original

Brembo offers the ideal solution for your car in the shape of blank brake disks. The undrilled, unslotted rotors of these disks offer a comfortable drive and increased brake pad life.
Most importantly, Brembo discs offer exactly the same quality and performance as the discs that your Ford Fiesta IV (JA_, JB_) had when it left the factory.
Brembo blank rotor brake discs may also boast one or more of the following characteristics.
PVT Pillar Vented Technology: one of the advantages of these disks is the use of ventilation pillars, which increase the resistance of the disk itself to thermal cracking be 40 percent relative to a conventional disk with vane ventilation.
High Carbon: the high percentage of carbon in the cast iron used to manufacturer these disks reduces vibration and noise when driving.
UV paint treatment: as well as giving the disc an attractive metallic finish, the ultra-violet (UV) cured paint process is also extremely energy efficient. By choosing UV technology, Brembo has reduced the energy usage and CO2 emissions of its disc painting process by 98%!

Brembo Xtra

If you're looking for something a little more innovative for your Ford Fiesta IV (JA_, JB_), why not choose cross-drilled discs?
As well as making your car stand out from the crowd with their stylish looks, Brembo Xtra discs boast potent, effective braking performance in all conditions.
The holes drilled into the rotor improve contact grip between the pad and the disc, ensuring perfect and safe performance right from the start of braking, in all temperature conditions and even in the wet. These holes also have a secondary function, keeping the surface of the pad clean by scraping off debris which would otherwise accumulate with time. The cross-drilled rotor allows heat and gas to escape more effectively, improving performance.
Alongside these crucial factors for braking safety is unmistakeable Brembo style, ensured by the special UV paint treatment.

Brembo Max

Slotted discs represent an alternative solution for maximising the responsiveness of your brake system.

Brembo Max disks demonstrate their superiority right from the moment you touch the brake pedal.
The slots cut into the rotor constantly refresh the friction material on the surface of the pad, preventing glazing of the pad itself.

One of the slots on the rotor of a Brembo Max disc serves as a disc wear indicator.
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.

If used together with Sport pads, these discs offer the same durability and comfort as the best discs for street use available on the market today.
With a gold-colored galvanized surface treatment, Brembo Sport disks accentuate the style of your Ford Fiesta IV (JA_, JB_) with even more elegant touch.
