We have had many requests for a vintage fitment with modern technological advances such as billet aluminium construction, lightweight, less unsprung weight enabling better handling and stopping power. Perfect for the Café racer scene.
The steel used for the new EBC brake discs is a special stainless steel compound with a higher frictional effect than that of conventional heat treated stainless steel brake discs. With the 10% improvement in the friction effect, the braking force is increased even further.
The weight of the new VMD series is reduced by a further 5-10% due to the rivet system with a lightweight inner ring, which in turn represents an improvement over conventional brake discs
The new brake discs are floaters which will allow the heat generated during braking to allow unrestricted expansion of the outer and inner rings without affecting the riveted joint
Such an impairment occurs when the brake disc is heated by strong braking and the outer ring touches the (normally round) rivets that separate the outer ring from the inner ring. The new EBC system prevents this problem, which causes 100% of the brake disc defects caused by disc distortion and vibration.
