BREMBO TURISMO 2-PIECE DISCS
The New range of Brembo Turismo 2-piece discs are designed to be a direct replacement of the original fitment discs, using the standard calipers. Much like the discs included in the Gran Turismo kits, the range of Turismo discs are manufactured using high-carbon cast iron, to improve thermal capacity and frictional properties.
Turismo discs are made up of 2 pieces: the high-carbon cast iron rotor and a billet aluminium bell. The 2 piece construction using a billet aluminium bell means that the overall unsprung weight of the vehicle is reduced, improving ride quality and handling. Turismo discs are also “floating”, which allows for thermal expansion and contraction under braking whilst keeping thermal stresses to a minimum. Through the use of specially designed “spring” bushes, noise is also kept to a minimum as the springs damp-out a lot of the vibrations between the bell, which is fixed to the axle, and the rotor, which is allowed to “float” a small amount both radially and axially.
The Turismo kits comprise a pair of 2-piece floating high-carbon cross-drilled or slotted discs and a set of comprehensive fitting instructions. Most discs also benefit from TÜV Certification and Homologation.
