AP Racing expands Radi-CAL™ Pro 5000 R range
AP Racing has expanded its Pro 5000 R range, with three brand new entry level brake callipers. Featuring innovative Radi-CAL™ technology, the calipers represent the next generation of the popular Pro 5000 range and set the benchmark for value and efficiency.
The CP9444 is a four-piston caliper that features AP Racing’s Radi-CAL™ technology that is suitable for 13” wheel applications. The caliper has a forged two-piece aluminium alloy body and benefits from a radical asymmetric design concept, offering superior dynamic performance.
The CP9444 features an integral pad retainer, designed to enhance caliper stiffness and suits discs up to Ø280 x 18/21/22/25.mm thickness. The smaller bore version, CP9445, is of the same design but is suited for rear applications. Both calipers are internally ported.
Of similar design, including a forged, two-piece aluminium alloy body, the CP9668 is a six-piston caliper that again incorporates the Radi-CAL™ design philosophy and features a radial mount with 180 x 42mm ctrs. The caliper is suitable for Ø390.0mm x 36mm or Ø378.0mm x 32.0mm thick cast iron discs.
The internally ported CP9668 also benefits from a radical asymmetric design concept which offers superior dynamic performance and increased stiffness. The pistons and wear plates are made stainless steel, while a bolted pad retainer with a quick-release spring clip is also supplied.
The revolution in brake technology that begun in 2007 with AP Racing’s patented Radi-CAL™ caliper continues into 2016, with the evolution of the concept and some new additions to the range. Taking the expertise and experience from its Formula 1 work AP Racing has produced 80+ different Radi-CAL™ caliper designs to date, and the company continues to refine the design process.
The new range of Radi-CAL™ callipers are available from distributors, while product information and technical guidance is available direct from AP Racing, though the technical department on +44 (0) 24 7663 9595 or via www.apracing.com
