New finned caliper
Characterized by a very similar design to the GP4, introduced already in MotoGP in the 2020 championship and today used by almost all the riders,
it’s the new caliper dedicated to the World Superbike Championship.
Brembo will supply a new monobloc caliper machined from a solid piece of aluminium, with radial attachment and four pistons, with a diameter of 34 mm.
The Z04 sintered pads are designed to perfectly fit the new caliper geometry.
This caliper is distinguished by an
extreme design - the presence of fins on the external body - presents elements of innovation with an
amplified caliper anti-drag system. In detail, the caliper is characterized by a
system that allows each rider to adjust the braking torque, meaning during the braking action, the rider
generates a force that is added to that of the hydraulic pressure of the brake fluid on the pistons. In this way, with the same force on the rider's lever,
the braking torque is amplified.
Thanks to a spring device
the anti-drag system reduces the residual torque to avoid contact between pads and discs in the absence of pressure in the system. This avoids the formation of unwanted force to reduce drag and decrease rolling resistance that unintentionally slows down the bike.
