When continuous and reliable stopping power is paramount to improved braking, its important to understand what makes a good quality caliper.
Our FUJI brake callipers are produced to the highest standards, not only to ensure optimum performance, but to provide long term reliability and resistance to the elements.
Our 6 piston calipers are produced from T6-6066 forged aluminium which offers far greater strength than T6-6061 cast aluminium (the choice of many brake manufacturers). In addition the components follow a strict T651 heat treatment process to provide additional hardness and protection, after which the caliper body is then hard anodised or painted in a choice of colours. The advantage of these materials and processes is to ensure the brake caliper body is hard wearing, carries better resistance to heat and is well protected for long term use.
Much like our brake calipers, FUJI brake rotors are also produced to meet the highest standards demanded by heavy braking conditions.
Our brake discs are produced from FC-25 “carbon steel”. This special mix of materials means that our brake rotors are far more friction coefficient when compared to normal steel. To put this into perspective, brake discs produced from FC-22 steel (found in many competitions brake kits) expand as much as 1.2-1.5mm when reaching temperatures of 500°C. The equivalent Fuji rotor produced in high carbon steel will only expand by 0.42mm in comparison.
The result; a FUJI rotor is able to withstand higher levels of stress and temperature and as such is far less likely to ever distort or warp.
Couple this with our cross hatch groove design (utilised to sweep a fresh face onto the brake pad turn after turn) across the disc faces and directional curved veins running through the disc centre to aid cooling and you have an exceptional high performing brake disc.
