BrakeTech

State of the art brakediscs.

Established in 1997, the focal point of BrakeTech USA was and is the development of advanced design brake systems to not only improve the overall performance of modern day Sportbikes and roadracers, but to provide an avenue to fine-tune those parameters as well.

To address that, the hi-tech AXIS™ full-floating system was developed whereby the floater buttons are assigned the task of controlling float [only] in a non load-bearing architecture. This remarkably simple yet amazingly effective design was granted U.S. Patent No. 6,957,726 in 2005. Additionally, BrakeTech is the only major brake rotor manufacturer to offer three distinctly different material combinations.

The patented AXIS/CMC™ by BrakeTech USA is the latest in ultra-advanced Ceramic Matrix Composite brake rotor technology for the Motorcycle Industry. As with our AXIS/Iron™ and AXIS/Cobra™ stainless steel brake rotors, all of the considerable braking forces are channeled through the trademarked Direct-Link™ architecture, comprising over an 800% increase in surface area load transfer as compared to conventional floating brake rotors...simply far superior by design!

 

Over ten years in development, the AXIS/CMC incorporates now de-classified Stealth Bomber Aircraft technology that takes high performance in an incredibly lightweight material design to an all-new level. This revolutionary material will change the way both top-level race teams and enthusiasts alike view their braking systems. The performance parameters in-total make all previous materials and systems dated by comparison, including the vaunted Carbon/carbon brakes. Designed to perform brilliantly with OE calipers as well as the Billet GP race-spec units. This unparalleled composite material offers the best features of premium iron rotors with the incredible lightweight of carbon, and none of the Carbon/carbon foibles!

 

Performance features include:

 

Not thermally sensitive (will work great on the street)

Ultra broad torque curve across a very wide thermal range

Much longer lasting than C/c

Much less expensive than C/c

Great wet weather performance - unlike C/c [not hygroscopic]

Terrific feel and feedback at the lever

Strong braking performance? We mean, Really strong: +.6 mu average friction with special requisite Ferodo Racing pads

 

Comparative Brake Weight Stats (CBR1000rr, `04-05):

 

Honda OE 310mm stainless: 3lbs 4.4oz at 5mm thick [1486grams]

BrakeTech 310mm Iron: 2lbs 15.0oz at 5mm thick [1332grams]

BrakeTech 310mm CMC: 1lb 5.6oz at 5mm thick [612grams]

 

Comparative Brake Weight Stats for 6mm thick Narrow-Band Superbike:

 

BrakeTech SBK 320mm CMC: 1lb 8.7oz at 6.0mm thick [700grams]

Brembo SBK 320mm Steel: 3lbs 11.4oz at 6.0mm thick [1684grams]

 

When considering the purchase of this advanced technology brake system, bear in mind, it's not simply a braking improvement, but a whopping 65% reduction [average] of unsprung weight as well. That equates to a genuinely substantial handling improvement with the investment and creates a whole new avenue to reduce the moment of inertia steering input and improving overall handling with chassis-reactive dynamics that simply must be experienced - the reduction in gyroscopic forces is nothing short of amazing!!!

 

Hot or cold, wet or dry, the AXIS/CMC™ full-floaters establish a new dimension in braking and handling performance without peer!

AXIS/SBK

We are pleased to announce the updated AXIS/Iron SBK-spec full-floaters in the 320mm x 6.5mm narrow-band configuration. We've corroborated with the material manufacturer to develop a very specialized duplex heat-treating process to stabilize the micro-grain structure to optimize its ability to deal with the ultra high thermal loads of Pro-level racing. All of the considerable braking forces are channeled through the trademarked Direct-Link™ architecture, comprising over an 800% increase in surface area load transfer as compared to conventional floating brake rotors...simply far superior by design!

 

The updated material configuration substantially improves durability under severe duty race conditions to maximize performance while minimizing weight (they typically run up to ten ounces less than a comparable Brembo Superbike rotor). Also, they do not receive the standard black GunKote treatment in an effort to provide the least complicated and quickest bed-in.

 

Intended for use with Billet GP type calipers, the AXIS/SBK race rotors represent an ideal solution for teams looking to upgrade their brake systems.
