Ultimate Braking Solutions for Heavy Vehicles

Launching under the all-new Upgrade Performance product label, DBA’s latest offering consists initially of a range of Dual Diaphragm Brake Boosters and a program of brake upgrade kits for heavy-duty 4WD applications. The introduction of these kits marks a significant milestone in DBA’s product range, starting with a bespoke brake upgrade kit for the new Ford Ranger. This kit is engineered to deliver unparalleled braking performance and reduced stopping distances, making it a game-changer for this popular vehicle.

Key to the kit’s performance are the 6-piston calipers, which drastically reduce pedal effort by up to 60%. This translates to smoother, more responsive braking that instills confidence in drivers, particularly in emergency situations. The inclusion of the Kangaroo Paw rotor vane design further enhances cooling properties, preventing brake fade even under the most demanding conditions. The T3 slot design, coupled with XP friction level pads, ensures low brake fade and high bite, providing consistent performance and reliability. Stainless steel braided hoses enhance resistance to heat and pressure, maintaining performance integrity and longevity. The entire kit is designed to fit within the 17” OE wheels, making a wheel change optional. Like the Dual Diaphragm Brake Booster, the kit is fully ADR-approved, and caliper mounting brackets are supplied where applicable, simplifying the upgrade process.

DBA’s commitment to innovation and quality is evident in every aspect of the new Upgrade Performance range. By addressing the specific needs of modern vehicles and drivers, DBA not only meets but often exceeds expectations, setting new standards in automotive braking technology.

In an era where vehicle demands are higher than ever, Disc Brakes Australia (DBA) has proven itself as a leader in providing comprehensive braking solutions for both adventurers and professionals. The introduction of the bespoke brake upgrade kit demonstrates DBA’s unwavering commitment to enhancing safety, performance, and reliability. These products are designed using DBA’s staple technologies in disc rotors and brake pads to tackle the challenges faced by modern 4WD vehicles, ensuring drivers can control their vehicles with confidence and ease. By continuously meeting the rigorous standards of today’s automotive landscape, DBA solidifies its position as the go-to source for top-tier braking technology, making every journey safer and more efficient.
