From Aaron Glenn, the man who 2 years ago introduced the awesome, and somewhat expensive , “Internal Brake 3-piece wheel”, a new idea to improve braking on tall wheels, size 21″, 26″ and 30″. To stop your big donuts, a 16″ rotor (instead of the usual 10″, 11.5″ and 13″) coupled to an oversized brake caliper stated to perform better than dual factory calipers pinching a 11.5″ rotor.
Kit justification? For the rotor size, it’s self-evident. For the bigger size brake caliper, of course because of larger piston bores and more pad surface to increase pressure and friction.
Glenn tells me that his caliper design keeps the correct TFV, or Total Fluid Volume, that can be found for example on a FLH platform Harley (08 and up) or Brembo brake. Consequently, no master cylinder change is necessary. The same kit also works for bikes equipped with ABS. Available with the correct bracket for 11.5″ and 13″ rotors. Brake calipers will be offered in an array of different colors and finishes. For now, the rotors’ design is available in 5 to 11-spoke configurations, making them complementing nicely a rather large number of wheel designs from different manufacturers. Dealers, see them and other new products in february at the V-Twin Expo. Glenndyne Design.
