Four Brembo Solutions for Replacing the Discs on Your Mazda5


Despite its years, you still love your Mazda5 as much as the first day you saw it. You’ve travelled so far together that the time has come to change the discs and pads to make your braking system as good as new.

Not all discs are the same, you know. Each manufacturer has its own production process and uses different materials to make this crucial component for the safety of your car. There are brands that have only been around for a short while, and others that continue to set the standard for innovation. Quality always shines through, and Brembo has secured hundreds of wins in racing over the past 40 years.

Brembo offers four different solutions for replacing worn parts of your brake system. To keep your brake system in peak condition, we recommend changing your old pads together with the discs, as worn friction material could impair your new Brembo brake components.

Brembo Original

Brembo Original discs are first and most natural choice suggested by Brembo. The smooth rotor surfaces of blank discs maximise comfort while minimising brake pad wear.

To set your mind at ease, all you need to know is that Brembo blank brake discs are manufactured to exactly the same high quality standards as the parts originally fitted to your Mazda5 when you bought it.

An undrilled, unslotted rotor does not necessarily mean a simple disc. Depending on the specific car model, the Brembo brake discs of this range may also feature a number of stand-out characteristics such as UV paint treatment, pillar vented technology or high carbon cast iron.

PVT Pillar Vented Technology: this is a disc with a special pillar ventilation configuration patented by Brembo which improves the resistance of the disc to thermal cracking by 40 percent compared with a disc with conventional vanes.

High Carbon: the high percentage of carbon in the cast iron used to manufacturer these discs reduces vibration and noise when driving.

UV paint treatment: boasting minimal environmental impact and superlative quality, Brembo UV painted discs set a new benchmark for replacement components, while the exclusive metallic finish give the disc itself an eye-catching visual impact.

Brembo Xtra

If you’re looking for something a little more innovative for your Mazda5, why not choose cross-drilled discs?

Brembo Xtra discs give your Mazda5 outstanding braking performance in all conditions matched with style.

The secret behind the performance of these discs lies in the holes drilled into the rotor, which improve the initial grip between the pad and the disc itself even in the wet and at high disc temperatures. What’s more, the holes in Brembo Xtra discs also scrape accumulated debris from the surface of the pad to ensure the safety of your braking system in all conditions. The holes also help prevent brake fade caused by overheating and more effectively evacuate the gas produced as a result of friction against the pad.
To attract even more admiring eyes, Brembo Xtra discs are finished with a special UV cured paint treatment.

Brembo Max

Maybe this is what you were looking for: Brembo offers an appealing alternative for owners like you, who only want the best for your Mazda5: slotted discs.

Choose Brembo Max discs, which deliver even better performance than standard discs, especially during the very first moments after you press the pedal.

The slots cut into the rotor constantly refresh the friction material on the surface of the pad, preventing glazing of the pad itself.

Brembo Max disks also let you monitor the wear of the discs themselves with a special wear indicator slot in the surface.

This special feature lets you determine when it’s necessary to replace the disc by yourself.

Brembo Sport

Are you a passionate, sporty driver? Then Sport discs are the perfect match for you. To cater for different tastes, Brembo Sport discs are available with either cross-drilled or slotted rotors. In both cases, the disc ventilation system is optimized to reduce disc warping phenomena caused by repeated, sudden temperature changes.

When used together with brake pads from the Sport range, these discs will be just as durable and comfortable as the best quality road-going discs.
To offer a product with unmistakably sporty looks, Brembo Sport discs are subjected to complex galvanizing process which gives them a gold-colored finish.

Brembo Sport discs are trouble-free to install, too, as they are exactly the same size as the original parts and totally compatible with the standard callipers and wheels.
