Smooth Brake Rotors
With the exception of high end performance vehicles, almost all vehicles on the road are fitted with smooth brake rotors from the factory. Smooth Brake Rotors are a tried and tested formula, offering superior braking surface area and reliable braking in a range of everyday driving conditions, they are suitable for the occasional spirited drive and, in short bursts, some track use. Smooth brake rotors are cost effective and offer OE level braking performance for your vehicle.
Slotted Brake Rotors
The first step up in performance over traditional ‘smooth rotors’, Slotted Brake Rotors are easily distinguishable by the cuts or grooves along the face of the rotor. The Slots in the Brake Rotor allow for greater heat and gas dispersion for consistent braking in performance driving applications. The DBA T2 and DBA T3 Brake Rotor range are the perfect upgrade for performance oriented drivers looking for improved braking, less pedal travel and reduced brake fade.
