A Unique Place in the Brake Industry
Brake rotors have long been the overlooked link in performance car braking systems. Traditional 1-piece brake rotors are heavy and retain heat, diminishing their effectiveness and adding unsprung weight that adversely affects handling.
When GiroDisc was founded in 2003, we made it our mission to design and manufacture 2-piece brake rotors that would perform flawlessly at the limits. Our fully-floating design uses tension hardware to ensure that our rotors are silent on the street, but ready to go on the track.
By specializing in this area, we can dedicate our efforts to push our engineering and manufacturing to the highest levels in the industry. Customers around the world have found success maximizing the capabilities of their existing brake systems by installing GiroDisc rotors. This often negates the need for a pricier, more complex upgrade like a big brake kit.
GiroDisc is headquartered in Bellingham, Washington, where we design, engineer, manufacture and fulfill orders on site. For more information about our products and services, please contact us.
