The new range of Brembo Xtra brake discs is characterised by special drillings which combines the appealing aesthetic effect with brilliant performance and effective braking in all conditions. Developed by the R&D department on the basis of its experience with car manufacturers and the racing world, the Brembo Xtra range is characterised by holes in the braking surface that can provide significant improvement to the brake system performance. The sporty look of Brembo Xtra, enhanced by UV coating, is combined with the guarantee of maximum reliability in terms of durability, performance and safety.
To each his own Xtra!
In order to obtain a powerful and safe product, during the design phase, the Brembo technician studied the number, size, shape and position of every hole for each specific brake discs of the Xtra range. The Brembo Xtra discs passed all tests on the dynamometer bench as well as on road.
Compact, Medium, Coupé and SUV car models are some of the applications selected for the Brembo Xtra range. The result is the most comprehensive and updated range of sport brake discs available on the market.
Pad cleaning and regeneration
The holes produce a scraping effect that cleans the surface of the pad from hazardous material deposits, thus preventing that even the slightest amount of ferrous material – that come from the brake disc wear- can sediment on the friction material of the brake pad.
Wet brake performance
The holes serve to prevent water film that may form on the braking surface. Even when driving on slick roads the brake system responds effectively already at the first braking.
Brake system cooling
The presence of the holes leads to greater air circulation, resulting in improved heat dissipation capability and its increased performance.
The holes on the brake disc surface ensure high grip and efficient, prompt response.
Especially in the early stage of braking, the surface of the holes ensures optimal performance, thanks to the significant friction coefficient.
Maximum friction even at high temperatures
At high temperature combustion of the resins that make up the pad generates fading, with decreased friction between pad and disc.
These holes allow for rapid expulsion of gasses and a stable behaviour even at high temperatures.
Attention! For some particularly stressed applications, instead of the traditional pass-through holes, Brembo Xtra high performance brake discs use the “dimples” solution, always guaranteeing the same advantages as the standard holes and giving the disc greater resistance to the thermomechanical stresses to which it is subjected during use.
In other cases, on the other hand, special materials were used for the purpose of improving the heat dispersion and mechanical resistance capacity, thereby guaranteeing optimum performance at maximum safety.
Made for each other
The Xtra pads are a perfect partner for the Max and Xtra discs.
They enhance their excellent performances and ensure a complete control over the braking action, providing the full pleasure of sports driving.
The special BRM X L01 compound has over 30 different components and stand out for a high friction coefficient. This means that the braking will be more prompt and stable, both at high temperatures as well as at low ones. All this while a greater driving comfort and an improved brake pedal precision are ensured without impairing the product's mileage.
