Ashima - New disc brakes

In 2009 Ashima will launch a few new products. This will include two new brake systems

One of then will be the PCB the World 1st Piston-less. This brake will be known also as the "PanCake"

PCB: PanCake Brake Features:
  • Pad movement controlled by Diaphragm Seal
  • Seal design ensures unsurpassed pad retraction of 0.7mm!
  • Ultra-thin caliper just 25mm!

  • Simplified manufacturing processes ensures cost advantage
  • Seal design gives equivalent area to using 20mm piston
  • Fluid feed directly to centre of Diaphragm seal for better response
  • Ultra thin caliper section ensures min. weight

The other release will be the APVs (Ashima Power Valve system)

  • 4 Piston, 2 pairs of axially mounted pistons
  • Initial braking force uses 14mm pistons, for superior control
  • Higher hand loads additionally release the 22mm pistons giving maximum braking force when you need it!

  • Braking action gives excellent modulation for light hand loads
  • Max brake conditions total piston area is equivalent to 26mm pistons!
  • External fluid transfer improves heat dissipation of brake fluid preventing “pump-up”
  • Air cooled pistons
  • Unrivaled aesthetics

Also Ashima will launch the color version of AiRotor, which is the lightest stainless steel rotor on the market!
