As soon as BMW announced its brand-new braking technology, it became the talk of the automotive world. In recent years, BMW has been known to push the boundaries of performance both on and off the track. The new technology is no exception. It’s a revolutionary braking system that utilizes a combination of innovative ergonomics, materials, and hardware to deliver one-of-a-kind performance and reliability.
In order to make this technology possible, BMW has invested significantly in both research and engineering. From their understanding of particle physics to their mastery of friction dynamics, their engineers set out to design a braking system that would outperform all competition. As a result, BMW has created a powerful, yet lightweight braking system that provides years of reliable braking performance.
At the heart of this system is BMW’s premium Caliper 3 stainless steel caliper design. This “jewel of engineering,” as BMW calls it, is composed of a patented two-piece design with a high-grade stainless steel piston and high-strength pressure plates. The piston works to generate additional force against the high-strength pressure plates which then use that extra force to firmly clasp the rotor and offer outstanding braking power, efficiency, and reliability.
In addition to the highly advanced caliper design, BMW has also developed a completely new line of brake pads specifically designed to optimize the performance of the Caliper 3 caliper. The new BMW brake pads are made from a unique compound that is heat-resistant, wear-resistant, and delivers excellent stopping power. Combined with the Caliper 3 caliper, the BMW brake pads provide a powerful, consistent braking performance.
The use of advanced materials does not end there either. BMW has equipped its brake system with an exclusive high-performance caliper package. This package includes lightweight, forged aluminum construction and a cutting-edge electronic braking system (EBS). The EBS offers improved control, responsiveness, and modulation of the braking power while dramatically reducing the chances of brake fade and inconsistent performance.
Although BMW’s braking system has been designed to offer unrivaled performance, the best part may be how accessible it is to everyone. Doubling duty as a street-legal and track-ready system, BMW has made its one-of-a-kind braking technologies available to everyone. BMW’s unrivaled braking performance is further proof that the brand is committed to pushing the boundaries of performance in all aspects of the driving experience.
