Perimeter Brake Systems Brake Hard And Look Very Cool.

Custom builders use them more and more. And they were inspired by sport bikes using this system for performance braking. Perimeter brakes physic is quite simple. If you would try to stop a very fast spinning wheel with your hands (don’t try it), would it be easier if you squeeze the tire or the wheel hub? Well, you got it. The reason why individuals were reticent to adopt this system is that it can be costly and risky business to adapt a perimeter brake to your existing wheels. So, RMD Billet created one, including the in-house designed caliper, that is a direct bolt-on to their unique 3-piece wheels. Their perimeter brake is made out of light weight but strong aluminum, not heavy stainless steel. Rotor is ceramic coated to give more braking reaction, to consume less heat and wear less than steel.

    Cool look, tho dunno how much brake you really need to overpower a 3.25 skinny……

    Not sure of the stopping power or price comparison, but Dave Cook’s perimeters look a thousand times better…

    The perimeter brake looks better than a 360 brake (imo)

    Eric Buell – Zero Torsional Load braking – allows for lighter wheels and more sure-footedness through less unsprung weight and progressive braking ‘feel’. It’s worth a look at
