AP Racing reveals a new range of Radi-CAL brake calipers

Article by Christian A., on October 31, 2013

AP Racing has developed a new lineup of Radi-CAL brake calipers which merge race technology with high-performance road products. AP Racing, the top manufacturer of performance braking and clutch systems for road and race use, has created the new range of Radi-CAL products offered as six and four-pot front calipers, as well as a four-pot rear calliper. These products are built from the company’s expertise in manufacturing brake systems for race and OEM installations, into calipers applicable for the aftermarket. Consequently, Radi-CAL offers a high tech brake upgrade for those who own high performance and sports cars. The forged non-symmetrical callipers feature a two-piece Aluminium body and h-piece that offers a considerable drop in mass compared to traditional designs, and better caliper efficiency when resisting the torque that result from braking.

This doesn’t just reduce a vehicle’s un-sprung weight. It also guarantees the continued high performance in demanding applications. The advanced design process of AP Racing enables the Radi-CAL concept to diminish structure and weight, while enhancing caliper cooling surface area, without compromising rigidity.

This offers better brake caliper cooling and decreases disc temperatures during high performance driving. These new models are available direct to vehicle manufacturers and represent a perfect upgrade from factory fitted calipers. From its launch, this range will cover popular performance models such as the 2012 Nissan GTR, BMW F10 5 Series, Audi A6 and Range Rover Evoque. However, additional models will be gradually added to the range. [source: AP Racing]
