Alcon components include oversize brake rotors kits with separate fully floating hubs that are highly desirable for full race applications and in a range of sizes. Their website which gives details of their hardware range can be found here.
It is always a pleasure to see British manufacturers survive and prosper in todays fierce competitive climate and like Alcon, EBC Brakes also remains at the forefront of British engineering with its full technical and R and D facilities at its Bristol UK plant including no less than 5 dynamometers for material development.
The advantages of aftermarket calipers are quite clear. A free sliding and centralising brake caliper that has good venting, allows release of the pads as well as positive clamping is a must for the high performance enthusiast or racer and Alcon products fit nicely into the variety of brake calipers available for such users.
Many race beginners and track day drivers ignore the fact that a standard vehicle brake caliper is not at all designed for race use and often drivers believe that simply fitting a set of good pads and tyres has transformed their car into a race vehicle. Brakes and especially brake calipers and brake pads are a vital part to a preparing a proper track vehicle whether you are a professional racer or one of the many weekend warriors and Alcon brake components are well worth a look. Whilst a decent set of brake pads is always a good start somewhere down the line if class rules allow a new brake caliper and maybe an oversize brake rotor kit will be needed.
