Brembo's experience at the top of world motorsport championships is reflected directly in the nickel-plated body, which not only creates a highly attractive look but has also allowed the designers to improve machining tolerances, achieving added benefits in terms of performance and operating precision.
The monobloc GP4-PR caliper has four pistons of different diameter made of titan, to maintain a constant friction coefficient and components used in racing, to give the best performances during braking.
The GP4-PR is a race caliper, using all the components applied in Superbike *Topology optimization software, used for simulation purposes, allows the designer to construct a mathematical model describing the stiffness of a component, starting from a given reference geometry.
Simulating the operation of a component, through iterative procedures, the software automatically identifies the material not required and proceeds to eliminate it.
The result is a new geometry that offers exceptional material utilization, and optimizes the performance, stiffness and weight of the component.
A product of experience acquired in SBK and MotoGP, the T-Drive is the next generation of product reflecting the natural evolution of Brembo brake discs engineered for competition use.
The key feature of the T-drive system is an innovative method of transferring brake torque from disc to wheel, in which the conventional system of cylindrical bobbins are replaced by a set of eight “T” pins on the disc and eight corresponding segments formed in the disc carrier.
The special shape of the pins was developed following a targeted study of machining tolerances and ensures braking torque can be transmitted more efficiently, by offering increased resistance to thermal and mechanical stresses, especially under extreme operations such as those encountered in competition.
