Valeo Crown Brake 820027

VALEO is currently developing a new type of brake for passenger cars and light trucks called Crown Brake.The Crown Brake is equivalent to a disc brake with a large diameter, and where the friction surfaces have been curved into a cylindrical shape.This original concept confers to the Crown Brake all the advantages of a conventional disc brake and introduces two new key advantages: the useful brake radius is increased by 20 to 30 % a similar increase in the heat dissipation areas, hence lower pad wear.Exhaustive testing has been conducted in cooperation with European manufacturers. Anticipated advantages have been confirmed.
