SANTA ROSA, Calif. — Orbis Brakes, which recently revealed its Periodic Wave™ disc brake line, has passed the $120,000 mark in its StartEngine funding campaign, according to a company Linkedin post.

Developed in partnership with NASA, the brakes use advanced aerodynamics to provide superior surface cooling, reduce dangerous brake fade, and extend vehicle range and fuel efficiency.

On Linkedin, the company posted: “We are ecstatic to announce that we just hit the $120K mark on our StartEngine campaign! We’ve had an amazing first two weeks on Start Engine. We will continue updating you with milestones, product updates, and market news.

“Just to recap, the $20B automotive brake industry has seen very few improvements in the past 20 years, and we believe that we’re poised to shake this industry up with our 50% lighter, more efficient, safer, and more cost-effective disc brake.

“Our engineering team with input from NASA has been focusing recently on a version of the brake that meets the requirement of 200mph cars. This version of the brake will be undergoing lab and track tests in the coming months and as soon as those results are in, we will publish those findings. Our expectations are high as the most recent lab report showed a 2-times faster rate of cooling than the leading competitor.”
