DBA’s 5000 series brake rotors are 2-piece and slotted, manufactured using aircraft grade aluminium hats which gives greater resistance to distortion from the the disc expanding uniformly. These also offer improved thermal protection to wheel bearings and they are lighter than the standard single-piece discs which reduces the unsprung weight of your sports car. They suit someone looking for greater braking performance and the ability to change the brake disc as needed while retaining the hub.
The unique Kangaroo Paw ventilation system is designed to minimise brake fade and significantly increase braking effectiveness which is especially important for those using their Elise or Exige for track days or targa tarmac rally events. DBA’s 5000 series of brake rotors feature Thermal Stability Profiling for improved heat handling and Thermal-Graphic Paint Markings for effective heat monitoring. The unique 6×6 wiper slot is designed clear brake dust and debris whilst maintaining consistent friction and a cleaner disc surface to improve maintenance.
