Brake rotors are a vital part of your motorcycles performance. Driven has exactly what you need with the Sport Series brake rotor.
Driven developed their Sport Series brake rotor using high carbon steel. High carbon steel will make certain you brakes continue to perform at the highest levels due to a hard contact, high friction surface and extreme heat resistance.
Driven has integrated a wave style edge with cross-cuts that will keep the rotor cool and clean as it spins.
Precision ground processing is performed keeping the braking surface as flat as possible.
The Driven Sport Series Rotor is also lighter than the OEM brake rotor which reduces the unsprung weight of your motorcycle to improve handling.
The main difference is that the Driven Rotors are made from high Carbon Steel which has hich has 3 times the thermal conductivity of Stainless steel. The High carbon steel cools down much quicker, which means that braking performance will be better as your brakes you will not overheat as easily, and eventually warp if gotten hot enough. The only draw back to high carbon rotors are maintenance related. If the consumer puts away the bike wet and dirty, the rotors can rust. Basically if you take care of your bike and put it away clean, the high carbon steel rotors as re the way to go as they will offer better performance. If you are not very good on the maintenance side, a stainless rotor will not deteriorate from lack of maintenance.
