The enhanced performance products, which include the DBA Street, DBA 4000 and the race-proven DBA 5000 series rotors – have created excitement amongst defence consumers, retailers and government bodies in local and overseas markets. DBA has developed and patented the Kangaroo Paw ventilation system. This vent system allows greater cooling and recovery time as well as added strength across the disc.
Disc brakes for 4WD military and light armoured vehicles
DBA’s most recent development is the DBA 4×4 Survival Brake series and it addresses one of the most overlooked road safety issues: the stopping performance of four-wheel drives, particularly in military or light armoured vehicle applications.
These provide a great deal more pad bite to pull up the vehicle more swiftly. The slots also rapidly clear dirt and water, which is especially important in off-road situations, and pump out the gas that can otherwise build up between pad and rotor. The slots minimise pad glazing too.
With this combination of slotting and improved ventilation, the DBA 4×4 Survival Brake series delivers the goods in the most extreme situations.
After 30 years of design and development with race teams worldwide, Disc Brakes Australia (DBA) developed a proprietary cast iron formulation (XG-150) for use in all of its premium performance disc brake rotors.
Inspired within Australia's heartland, DBA developed the Kangaroo Paw cooling system.
