Kits are sold for front, or rear axle and require the use of 20-inch wheels to clear the significantly oversized 380mm brake rotors.

The Athena caliper incorporates many unique features and advantages into its design, such as a rigid monoblock body with Sparta’s Aero-vent lightened framework for increased airflow to lower overall braking temperatures that result in more consistent braking.

The Athena calipers are paired with Sparta’s true floating two-piece designed brake rotor that incorporates Sparta’s proprietary DCF96 internal vane structures for increased cooling and fewer hot spots that can cause erratic braking performance.

Externally, TW3 slotting has been utilized to help stabilize internal temperatures, as well as optimize pad deglazing and debris evacuation.

The calipers themselves are available individually for customized fitments, in a six-piston configuration with appropriate rotor rings as well.
