Tarox offer 4 brake disc designs:
- Tarox C83 – Straight Grooves
- Tarox D95 – Cross Drilled all holes countersunk for crack reduction
- Tarox F2000 – Grooved discs ideal for increasing friction between pad and disc increasing pad bite.
- Tarox Sport Japan Plus – Multi drilled and multi grooved discs. Superb cooling and increased friction for extra pad bite!
In principle the more the better, the benefit in having multi pistons can be summed up as follows:
- Perpendicularly distributed pressure on the pads, resulting in more even wear of the brake pad Smaller pistons compared to those used on traditional calipers work perfectly parallel to the piston chambers, thus avoiding wear and loss of brake fluid
- Increased cooling action of the pads, due to more airflow behind the pad’s back plate
- Less stress factor on the caliper itself
- More clamping action resulting in more braking power due to the presence of more pistons
- Firmer pedal
