Motorcycle brake discs with inbuilt innovation

We design and build our brake discs to be a balanced part of the overall braking dynamic, and we’re innovators, always working to give you new enhancements in disc technology. Our brand new “SP” brake discs for professional racers are a prime example!

Strength and safety in all TRW Brake Discs

Our motorcycle brake discs are wear-resistant and their service life is up to 30% longer compared with many comparable aftermarket parts, so you can be sure of robust performance to maximise safety. All discs are made of extremely dimensionally stable and hardened steel machined to tightest tolerance. Precise surface grinding, with a thickness variation of just 2/100 mm, prevents vibrations and improves the adaptation of the pads significantly.

The technology behind our excellent motorcycle brake discs

Brake discs for motorcycles must work well with pads, effectively reflect heat generated during braking, resist abrasion, and, ultimately, serve the bike and the rider for as long as possible. What’s more, they should look impressive, because they’re the most striking element of the brake system.

TRW Motorcycle Brake Discs are made of an extremely high-grade steel alloy that protects reliably against corrosion, maintaining a good appearance as well as strength, safety and performance.

TRW Floating Brake Discs have milled, in titanium color, anodised inner rings. The discs do not clatter, as the high-grade stainless steel floaters are tensioned with corrugated washers.

There’s easy compatibility, too; every one of our brake discs can be individually used with brake pads from the comprehensive TRW range.

TRW Motorcycle brake discs for sports bikes and racing

It’s the combination of strength and intelligent design that keeps our discs ahead of the pack. TRW Motorcycle Brake Discs are manufactured from high strength, dimensionally stable steel and the precision cut, cross-shaped surface grinding prevents vibrations and accelerates the adaptation of new pads.

On the road or on the track, TRW “RAC” racing discs are street legal and real examples of cutting edge design. Due to intelligent temperature control, the cleverly designed “RAC” contour uniquely combines a highly spontaneous response with an extremely stable pressure point. “RAC” brake discs are intended for sporty riding on the road.

The new TRW “SP” brake discs for professional racers are in a league of their own, ensuring maximum braking force even under most extreme conditions!

The two-part design features a thicker 5,5mm outer ring of high strength steel alloy attached to a CNC milled inner ring of black anodised alloy by ten fully floating bobbins. This prevents warping and deformation, even if the outer ring expands under extreme temperatures.

TRW “SP” brake discs are available in two designs: “SP” with perforated outer ring and “SP RAC” with racing contour. Ideally they should be combined with the racing brake pads TRQ, CRQ or SCR. Both disc versions can be used with standard calipers and in all racing categories (no road approval!).

Whether you use them on the road or in race conditions, TRW motorcycle brake discs leave the competition behind!

varioflex brake lines

Play it safe with TRW motorcycle steel braided brake lines

A TRW Motorcycle Steel braided brake hose is technically superior to a rubber hose. A rubber hose continuously expands under pressure over time, an exact pressure point deteriorates and the brake starts to feel soft. Conventional hoses have to be replaced after 5 years, which is why the date of manufacture is specified on every rubber hose. Benefit from our offer of products that improve bike performance - choose TRW! Our steel-braided lines are a prime example for a quick and easy way to update the style and the performance of your bike.
