As the name implies Sport Japan discs were originally designed for the Japanese market where tough looks and high performance are important factors. Sport Japan discs feature 6 grooves on the braking surface which deglaze the pads and help vent the gasses and scale which cause fading.
Drilled holes remove heat from the discs, allowing the discs to run cooler. All Sport Japan discs are heat treated for strength, milled on numerically controlled machines and hand finished to ensure the smoothest possible braking surface. Sport Japan Discs are TUV approved.
Since the early 1980s TAROX brake discs have been associated with absolute quality. Blank casts used for TAROX discs, after having passed stringent quality controls, are subjected to structural stress relieving heat treatment at the end of each machining phase as a result of more than 30 years experience.
Facing is performed on CNC turning machines or; in the case of G88 discs; on in house custom built machinery.
Another distinguishing feature of TAROX brake discs is their perfectly level surface machined to a tolerance approaching 0.015 mm, achieved during the final finishing of the braking surfaces on grinding machines; each disc is ground individually by specialised operator resulting in that distinctive shining look.
TAROX discs work best when coupled with TAROX pads which have been specifically formulated to deliver optimum performance with heat treated discs.
