Late model OE calipers have come a long way in terms of both performance and design. Far more rigid than their predecessors, late generation calipers provide ultra stiff and relatively lightweight designs have been instrumental in bringing braking performance to new levels.
But they’re still using problematic aluminum pistons which conduct a lot of heat into the hydraulic fluid.
BrakeTech is now addressing this with specially engineered ventilated stainless steel pistons of proprietary material that all but eliminates the shortcomings associated with aluminum pistons:
- Reducing thermal conductivity by 94%
- Dramatically improves piston retraction, reduces brake drag
- Increases top speed
- Eliminates fluid boil
- Improves release time for greater control exiting the apex
- Improves overall braking consistency under severe racing conditions
The new ventilated racing pistons are manufactured from U.S. spec proprietary stainless to provide great thermal stability for racing applications.
This translates into much more consistent braking under extreme conditions.
No more having to chase the lever position in the second half of the race or suffer the effects of fluid boil.
The graph below clearly shows the thermal conductivity difference between the OE aluminum pistons and our new Ventilated Racing Pistons.
