We are very pleased to report the successful conclusion in finalizing the development of the new Third Generation CMC material matrix (MK III). So although the AXIS/CMC composite rotors are yet not currently available, the focus has now shifted to the logistics of production manufacturing. As such, we cannot assign a hard release date as of yet. However, we can say with confidence we’ll see this amazing product coming back into stock relatively soon.
The AXIS/CMC is without doubt the most sophisticated and technologically advanced aerospace derived brake system in existence, period. And although the move to commercial production employing the latest advancements in manufacturing technology has just begun, the extraordinarily high performance parameters combined with their ultra lightweight makes this incomparable aerospace product uniquely worth the wait!
Finalized pricing on the MK III is not available at this time.
More information to follow as it becomes available.
Over ten years in development, the AXIS/CMC incorporates now de-classified Stealth Bomber Aircraft technology that takes high performance in an incredibly lightweight material design to an all-new level. This revolutionary material will change the way both top-level race teams and enthusiasts alike view their braking systems. The performance parameters in-total make all previous materials and systems dated by comparison, including the vaunted Carbon/carbon brakes. Designed to perform brilliantly with OE calipers as well as the Billet GP race-spec units. This unparalleled composite material offers the best features of premium iron rotors with the incredible lightweight of carbon, and none of the Carbon/carbon foibles!
Performance features include:
- Not thermally sensitive (will work great on the street)
- Ultra broad torque curve across a very wide thermal range
- Much longer lasting than C/c
- Much less expensive than C/c
- Great wet weather performance – unlike C/c [not hygroscopic]
- Terrific feel and feedback at the lever
- Strong braking performance? We mean, Really strong: +.6 mu average friction with special requisite Ferodo Racing brake pads
Comparative Brake Weight Stats (CBR1000rr, `04-05):
- Honda OE 310mm stainless: 3lbs 4.4oz at 5mm thick [1486grams]
- BrakeTech 310mm Iron: 2lbs 15.0oz at 5mm thick [1332grams]
- BrakeTech 310mm CMC: 1lb 5.6oz at 5mm thick [612grams]
Comparative Brake Weight Stats for 6mm thick Narrow-Band Superbike:
- BrakeTech SBK 320mm CMC: 1lb 8.7oz at 6.0mm thick [700grams]
- Brembo SBK 320mm Steel: 3lbs 11.4oz at 6.0mm thick [1684grams]
When considering the purchase of this advanced technology brake system, bear in mind, it’s not simply a braking improvement, but a whopping 65% reduction[average] of unsprung weight as well. That equates to a genuinely substantial handling improvement with the investment and creates a whole new avenue to reduce the moment of inertia steering input and improving overall handling with chassis-reactive dynamics that simply must be experienced – the reduction in gyroscopic forces is nothing short of amazing!!!
Hot or cold, wet or dry, the AXIS/CMC™ full-floaters establish a new dimension in braking and handling performance without peer!
