No to thermal shocks even for road cars
Although they don't reach the 1,200°C (2,192°F) of Formula 1 cars, road car braking systems can also overheat. To avoid this, Brembo has researched the shape of the ventilation chamber for over a quarter of a century. Thanks to this, peg ventilation has replaced the traditional fins.
The pegs, arranged on three circumferences along the braking band, with different geometry to ensure optimum fluid dynamic performance, increase the resistance to thermal cracks by up to 30 percent, extending the life of the disc.
