On the track with more braking torque and greater thermal capacity.
The radial-mounted fixed calipers and the oversized discs give the brakes a greater breaking torque and thermal capacity
The result is a more immediate and decisive braking that can be noticed even during normal road usage but that is also incredibly powerful and consistent during the many consecutive days spent on the track.
The fixed calipers improve the system's durability and efficiency: in fact the use of several opposed pistons allows an enhanced distribution of the pads' action as well as a more uniform wear on the friction surfaces.
The caliper's great stiffness and the use of metal-braided hoses ensure the reduction of the brake fluid absorption. This provides a more prompt and stable value for the brake pedal's pressure thus improving the control and the pedal feeling.
Finally, owing to the aluminum alloy bell, the system with oversized floating disc reduces the unsprung weights (for an improved handling) and the thermal stress. The mounting system is engineered to permit a greater degree of both radial and axial float.
This feature adds to the larger braking surface and allows a better dissipation of the heat that is generated by the repeated, intense thermal stress that the discs have to withstand. This keeps the braking performance and pedal feel consistent even after many laps on the track.
