KENT, Wash. –Sparta Brakes (Sparta Evolution) announced its new line of entry level, OE equivalent brake rotors known as the GPe range.
Designed to replicate the original-equipment rotor as closely as possible, Sparta incorporates a straight vane cooling design, and precise final machining to match the factory product dimensions for a simple, trouble-free installation.
Sparta also improves the durability over the original-equipment brake discs by casting the GPe rotors from their proprietary GX3.0 iron alloy, and then coats the non-friction areas with a high temp paint to reduce surface corrosion.

The rotors share much of their design attributes with Sparta’s more popular street performance rotors the GP1, but the GPe line comes plain faced, meaning with no slotting, to keep costs down and to extend pad wear over slotted designs.
“Sparta’s GPe range was founded on the idea that high quality, durable and safe replacement rotors should be available to everyone.” Yoni Kellman, Sparta Sales and Marketing Manager continues: “GPe rotors incorporate all the typical features you’d expect from a quality aftermarket replacement brake rotor, but at a price point anyone can afford.”
Sparta Brakes is a global entity with various tier one and tier two companies in its DNA, which contribute to the world-class engineering advancements and a quality-first attitude that Sparta prides itself on.
