We could go on forever trying to convey the real meaning of the concept of the Wave Disk. This somewhat strange disk has been in development for a long time and has finally come to be. The real essence of this brake disk is that the braking has nothing to do with the disk, yet the disk means everything. Confused? Don't be; read on. It is not so much the surface area of the disk which creates better stopping power. It is the efficiency in which it utilizes all the pads surface evenly, the elimination of lightening holes (for added strength) and the ability to expand and contract as it heats up without warping the disk. Simply put, these disks use all pad surfaces for maximum stopping power while remaining perfectly flat. This design is covered with an international license.
The rotors are long wearing but some have noted the pads wear faster.
The wave rotors are designed to work excellent with all brake pad compositions for added cooling benefits. Magazine testing used wave rotors in combination with Galfer HH pads for optimum performance.
The brake system stays cooler and in contact with the rotor surface. This provides better brake power and lever feel.
Their exclusive, unusual design gives a distinct look to your machine.
Universal right and left side fitments holes are dispersed in a uniform pattern instead of fan-like pattern, for added cooling features
Although the Wave Rotors were initially designed for weight savings, this will vary by application and may not apply.
Sport Bikes, Super Motard & Other Racing: The added amount of trailing edges gives the racer better brake response at first touch of the brake lever. The Sport Bike application rotors by Galfer are race-ready units that perform excellent on the street. Many top race teams in national and local super-bike races currently use Galfer’s rotors. When you are at the track, stop and ask any Galfer sponsored team what they think about these rotors. You’ll be amazed. It’s likely that you’ll meet a factory representative as well.
