Performance Friction BrakesHigh brake temps got you feeling hot under the collar? Well, Power Friction Brakes (PFC) has something to remedy that. We stopped by its booth at PRI 2019 and Kyle Tellstrom broke down their newest offerings for asphalt super late-model and dirt late-model.
Kyle told us, “PFC is really pushing the limits. This year we introduced nickel-plated calipers to both the asphalt super late-model and dirt late-model worlds. It’s just the next step in technology” When we asked Kyle to expound on what makes the new binders work so well, he had this to say, “It starts off with our base platform. The monoblock caliper is stiffer. There are no extra components to fail on you. It’s not going to flex around, which translates to awesome pedal feel.”
Those aren’t the only benefits, though. The calipers also feature PFC’s patented piston-release technology which ensures the caliper is releasing from the rotor itself. Kyle also explained the benefits of PFC’s new insulators that ensure cooler temps under prolonged use.
“So we’ve just released the nickel-plating and new insulators that separate the piston face from the piston body that goes into the fluid. It helps reduce brake temperature in the caliper by about 50-75-degrees. It’s meant to be a setup for those really tough nights when you’re just burning the brakes off the thing. It’s not going to pull down on you. It’s the next step up that’s going to advance you to the finish line first.”
