Low weight is good, but not everything! There is no doubt, brake power and reliability are the most vital targets, which is why we have subjected our brake system to an intense testing procedure. Several tests have been performed not only in our plant, but also by independent testing institutes. The load which the brake system had to withstand was much greater than the values specified by the relevant standards, and the particular properties of CFRP were also considered.

To underline the properties of the brake we have measured the rigidity of different types in comparison to the Fibula. This value permits to determine the center of pressure and the power which can be achieved by a brake. The Fibula has an excellent rigidity and an unrivalled rigidity to weight ratio. No wonder that practical experience confirms the measured values.
