Description

The exclusive BrakeTech AXIS™ series Ductile Iron full-floaters provides a higher coefficient of friction over stainless, with more feel and feedback at the brake lever.  The patented AXIS Design floating system is many times stronger than conventional semi-floating brake rotors.  The heart of this leading edge system has the floater buttons controlling radial and axial float only, they are non load-bearing.  All of the considerable braking forces are channeled through the trademarked Direct-Link architecture, comprising over an 800% increase in surface area load transfer as compared to conventional floating brake rotors…simply far superior by design!

Iron provides a higher coefficient of friction over stainless, with more feel and feedback at the brake lever.  But get them wet – they’re going to rust.  If you’re a fair weather rider, then it’s a non-event and not an issue.  However, if you ride distances where inclement weather is a definite possibility, you’re better off with our AXIS/Cobra stainless steel series in the optimized petal design.

Also-Buttons come red as standard. If you would prefer Black/Blue or Orange please place comment in Checkout Comment Box.

These remarkably lightweight and patented full-floaters weigh in at a stealthy 640g to 680g, depending on application.

Unique in design and appearance, the AXIS rear floaters will be a limited premium line intended for late model European and select Japanese Sportbikes (for use with OE calipers).  Incorporating our patented floating architecture which is the hallmark of our AXIS front floaters, these lightweight 100% billet units weigh at 10-35% less than the OE units.  All of the considerable braking forces are channeled through the trademarked Direct-Link architecture, comprising over an 800% increase in surface area load transfer as compared to conventional floating brake rotors…simply far superior by design!  Our race-spec ductile iron units improve overall brake response with not just more power but strategically, considerably improved control and modulation at the brake pedal (as well as reducing brake drag).

Granted, rear brakes have historically not been a significant player in the Sportbike market, but never before has a truly innovative full-floating rotor been developed and targeted for this application.  With it’s distinctive design, improved performance parameters and huge weight reduction, we bring an entirely new dimension to this element of braking technology.

Intended for use with OE calipers, the new AXIS/Rear floaters will be offered for nearly all late model European and select Japanese Sportbikes.

NOTE: Requires rear wheels with “Post” type mounting face that allows adequate space for the bobbins to extend through the backside of the center carrier.  Will not fit on the following OE rear wheels (without user end modification to the wheel) but rather are intended for use with the full range of Aftermarket wheels employing the OE mounting pattern:
•    Honda CBR’s
•    Suzuki GSX-R’s
•    Yamaha YZF-R1 & R6

SPECIAL NOTE: All Japanese Sportbikes with Nissin calipers require a small amount of relieving of the OE caliper bracket to provide clearance for the floater button flangehead.

The AXIS Rear Floaters are the perfect upgrade for those moving to the higher performance Brembo HPK Billet rear caliper conversion kits.

DUCATI 1098/1198 and HyperMotard, M1100, 848 series includes the requisite speedo sensor triggers where required.

IMPORTANT FITMENT NOTE: The ABS sensor ring of the 4-hole mount models must be relieved around the bobbin area in order to allow space for the OE sensor ring to sit flush on the carrier.

AXIS/Iron Black GunKote: This is a rust inhibiting coating which is thermally bonded on to minimize corrosion.  It must be cleared from the pad sweep area before the rotors become fully functional.  Please click here for the one page instruction guide:  AXIS Iron Rotor Clearing instructions
