Larger than factory brake rotor for better overall brake performance Unique slotting and/or cross-drilling to aid heat and brake dust dispersal Black e-coating for added protection from corrosion Factory cooling vane design or directional vanes for improved cooling Available with an optional Cryogenic treatment for added durability Fully forged and stiff for firmer brake pedal feel Carefully engineered, 2-piece design reduces flex. The carbon steel caliper bolts running through both halves multiply strength by 3-fold. Patented, removable center bridge further resists yaw Carefully selected piston sizes for precise torque output Studs provide strength and durability rather than the more common bolts Fully machined aluminum or steel for precision and strength Application specific for precise and proper fitment All necessary hardware for easy bolt-on installation Stainless steel braiding for lower compliance and extra protection A variety of fittings for hundreds of applications All necessary brackets and fasteners to finish the job Provides quicker response Firmer pedal feel Better brake modulation
Slots create an escape route for debris, dust, gases, and water Slots reduce stopping distances in wet weather Slots clean and de-glaze pad surface for optimum pad coefficient of friction Slots help to increase pad bite and improve air circulation Vented type of rotors offers much faster heat dissipation Multi-piston calipers provide clamping force on both sides of the rotor at the same time and uniformly transfer braking force to the brake pads Caliper pistons are hollow to save weight Aluminum caliper body allows for exceptional light weight (up to 40% of weight savings) and ensures superior corrosion resistance Caliper heat-resistant coating prevent cracking and fading Fixed calipers create friction from the brake pads on both sides of the rotor at minimum time interval
The stiff 2-piece, fully-forged calipers have designated piston sizes specific to each application and provide a firmer, more responsive brake pedal that provides better brake pedal modulation. Depending on the application, Touring Big Brake Kits are available in two-, four- and six-piston configurations and 5 different caliper colors that use a special high temperature paint to withstand extreme conditions. All StopTech Touring Big Brake Kits include stiff calipers that utilize silicone dust boots to extend service intervals.
The larger 1-piece StopTech Sport rotors, available in slotted, drilled and drilled+slotted finishes, provide greater heat capacity and reduced brake fade. Also assisting in fade resistance and higher performance are the StopTech Sport Performance Pads which have a high maximum operating temperature, and high bite for responsive brakes that can be driven hard.
