Composite disc brake rotors

Hella Pagid Brake Systems is now offering composite disc brake rotors for European aftermarket applications. The two-piece brake discs have an aluminum hat and high carbon fibre ring, bonded together by rivets. Using aluminum means a weight savings of 15-30 per cent and reduces the unsprung mass of the brake system. While not only improving driving properties, the resulting assembly also helps to reduce fuel consumption. The composite brake rotors are designed to match with Hella Pagid’s brake pads.
