(PresseBox) ( Lake Forest, Illinois, )
The braking specialist brand from DRiV™, has launched a new composite rotor range that reduces weight by up to 30%, helping to enhance vehicle efficiency and improve braking performance. As a result of extensive R&D, the advanced rotors feature a high carbon cast iron surface area and aluminum bell. The range provides OE-quality components for a comprehensive range of BMW passenger vehicles.

“Ferodo has a reputation for ensuring that the aftermarket benefits from its comprehensive OE expertise, and we are delighted to bring this latest range to market and ensure that customers have access to the very latest and best-performing braking technologies,” says Silvano Veglia, Director Product Management Chassis – Braking, EMEA Aftermarket, DRiV™. “Ferodo is always seeking new ways to innovate through advanced manufacturing techniques, the use of new materials or incremental advancements that bring whole-system benefits. The new composite rotor range not only offers more stopping power, but through improved efficiency can offer increased fuel economy and enhanced comfort levels. We have found that these are exactly the characteristics sought by buyers of sporting, premium vehicles such as BMW.”

The new Ferodo composite brake rotor range is initially available across 17 part numbers suitable for many popular BMW models, with more expected throughout the year. All components retain OE rotor specifications, ensuring direct compatibility for models ranging from the 1- to 7-Series, including GranTurismo models and the Z4 roadster.

The innovative design and use of lightweight composites offers a high level of durability to match the improvement in comfort and performance. Reduced unsprung weight, smoothness and consistency of operation reduces vibration under braking, which offers significant NVH refinement over alternative materials and components.
