Compared to traditional carbon-ceramic discs, usually manufactured in about sixty days or so, these latest generation products boast a 14 percent reduction in weight. To put it more simply, that means that the vehicle weighs 3.4 kg (7.5 lbs) less, and, what's more, that's rotating mass. This saving translates into greater acceleration and more dynamic changes of direction: an almost aquatic lightness, also reiterated by the dynamic, but soft surfaces of the Battista.
None of this affects performance, which is not only very similar to that of the carbon discs used in Formula 1 GP races, but even surpasses it in terms of mileage and versatility: Brembo CCM-R discs do not need high temperatures to guarantee good results and their thermal conductivity at 400°C (752°F) is an amazing four times greater than the traditional carbon-ceramic discs, even as highly advanced as they are.
Unlike traditional cast iron and steel discs, carbon-ceramic guarantees a significantly higher heat dissipation capacity, thanks to the use of fluid-dynamic calculation techniques. This translates into better braking performance, more brake pedal stability and lower friction material wear, further accentuated in the CCM-R discs.
