Brembo has presented its new PISTA | FF calipers in its UPGRADE catalogue. These are the first members of a new family of racing calipers designed to offer high level performance on the track at an accessible price. This new family of calipers serves to bridge a gap in Brembo's product line. In the past, customers would either need to stick with OEM calipers or make the jump to Brembo's series of professional motorsports calipers. With the Pista, customers receives a caliper designed for serious track & race use, with a long list of features, that are at a much more attainable price level than their professional level kits. This specific kit can be paired with CorteX's cambered rear axle system for the ultimate rear-end setup.
Brembo has used its extensive experience in racing to create a family of uniquely designed forged calipers which guarantee the strength, light weight and design typically associated with racing. Track days have become increasingly popular over the last few years and Brembo has decided to offer a high performing solution that is easy to install to all those who are passionate about beating the stopwatch and want high speeds, faster cornering and, obviously, the best braking response.
The PISTA| FF family makes its debut with a 6-piston caliper – FF6 and a 4-piston caliper – FF4, ideal for use on the track where drivers drive under extreme conditions in a constant search for the best lap time.
The new Brembo PISTA | FF calipers have internal ducts that the brake fluid passes through which have been carefully studied to guarantee maximum bleedability of the system; they also have a rapid release system available on request for replacing the pads, as in endurance races, which enables the worn friction material to be replaced quickly and safely without having to remove the caliper from the hub carrier.
From an aesthetic point of view too, the new calipers in the PISTA| FF family resemble the brake systems that Brembo uses in top racing competitions. They have a forged asymmetric body with a fixed tangential bridge. The quick release can be replaced with fixed elements to increase rigidity in sprint applications.
