DBA’s Kangaroo Paw ventilation design delivers significantly improved braking performance under all conditions to make you safer than ever before. The innovative design runs cooler, is stronger, and can outperform traditional straight vane disc brake rotors.
Every time the brakes are used massive pressure is built up through the braking system. The force your foot applies at the brake pedal is multiplied many times at the disc rotors, creating friction and extreme heat. The extreme heat can cause disc rotors to warp, distort and in some cases fail. Traditionally, heat is removed as air flows through the rotor from the centre of the disc to the outside passing between straight ‘cooling vanes’ drawing heat from the disc. With the DBA Kangaroo Paw design the air flows between 144 precisely positioned diamond and tear-drop pillars which have a much greater surface area allowing great heat dissipation.
The more efficient cooling improves brake pad and disc rotor life, and helps reduce brake fade. The pillars also provide greater strength across the disc rotor and reduce the tendency for disc distortion.
