It's important to choose a dependable brand when buying a part for something as crucial as the brake system. Through continuous innovation, Brembo has notched up hundreds of victories in motorsports over the past 40 years.
Choose from 4 different options suggested by Brembo to update the brake disks on your Ford Focus (DAW, DBW). To get the best performance and usage out of your new brake discs, Brembo recommends always changing the pads at the same time, as even an only partially worn pad could irreparably damage a new disc.

Some brands recommend disks which only look similar to the original components fitted to you Ford Focus (DAW, DBW). Brembo, on the other hand, offers you exactly the same discs that your car had when it left the assembly line!

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: Brembo discs with improved performance through the use of high carbon cast iron, which reduces both vibration and noise when braking.
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 a brake disk with more aggressive looks and more focused performance, Brembo recommends cross-drilled disks: the ideal solution for owners who want to treat their Ford Focus (DAW, DBW).
Brembo Xtra discs combine unmistakeable style with maximised braking performance.
The holes drilled into the brake rotor significantly improve pad/disk grip, giving your Ford Focus (DAW, DBW) precise, effective braking power at the start of braking in wet conditions in particular and at high temperatures. These holes also clean the surface of the pad by scraping off debris which could otherwise build up over time. The holes also help prevent brake fade caused by overheating and more effectively evacuate the gas produced as a result of friction against the pad.
And then there's also the sporty looks of Brembo Xtra discs, which is accentuated by the UV paint coating.

Brembo Max

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

Brembo Max offer more effective braking power than standard brakes, especially at the start of braking.
The slotted rotors keep the friction material of the pads in good condition. This prevents excessively rapid increases in temperature, which are the cause of glazing.

One of the slots in the surface of Brembo Max discs is a wear indicator, letting you know when the minimum permissible disc thickness is reached.
This means that you can monitor disk wear for yourself and decide when it's the right time to change the disks.
