Directional brake discs

Brembo Xtra discs are not directional. The hole pattern does not have a mandatory direction of rotation as it is designed to work correctly and deliver precisely the same performance and comfort irrespective of the side of the vehicle the disc is mounted on.

Why do some of the Xtra range discs have pass-through holes while others have blind holes (dimples)?

The holes on the braking surface are typical of Brembo's Xtra range discs. They improve the system's performance in terms of initial grip, pedal feeling, fade resistance and heat dissipation capacity.
