Drivers worldwide demand DBA products for consistent, reliable and superior performance in street and race environments. This confidence comes from DBA’s commitment to supplying a product far superior to their generic and aftermarket competitors — from foundry to showroom, DBA has consistently re-defined and delivered braking solutions for an extensive range of vehicles and applications.

Kangaroo Paw Ventilation Design

DBA’s innovative Kangaroo Paw ventilation design runs cooler, is stronger, and outperforms straight vane rotors by up to 20%. Comprised of 144 precisely positions diamond & teardrop pillars, the Kangaroo Paw design provides greater strength and surface area, meaning better heat dissipation and fade resistance when it counts.

Cubic Boron Nitride (CBN) machine turned

Traditional methods of machining the surface of discs result in a harsh, abrasive surface that can be detrimental to the bedding in process, and lead to a shorter pad life in performance conditions. DBA discs are treated with CBN finishing for a far smoother surface, ultimately improving the pad-rotor interface and pedal feel of your braking system.

These discs are a bolt-on replacement for your genuine discs, which feature DBA’s patented ‘Kangaroo Paw‘ ventilation design and CBN (cubic Boron Nitride) finished surface. Australian engineered and quality assured to the highest possible standards, DBA’s OE replacement discs represent safety, quality, and innovation.
The T2 single piece rotor features bi-symmetrical curved slots for greater noise reduction and improved responsiveness throughout the braking process. A universal slot design also eliminates the need for left & right discs, while providing more out-gassing exit points for increased pad bit and consistency in braking.
Based on the T2 design, DBA’s T3 increases from 32 to 48 CNC machined curved slots, resulting in quieter, smoother, more responsive braking. By increasing the number of slots, the vibration dampening, consistency of feel and gas-exit properties of the disc are improved further – resulting in a new standard of performance braking.
5000 series rotors are a two-piece design featuring a re-useable aircraft grade 6061 aluminium centre hat and DBA’s T3 slot design on the rotor. Suitable for all environments from daily driving to motorsport and 4WD/Towing, the 5000 series are the pinnacle of performance and function in rotor technology. 5000 series rotors also feature DBA’s Thermo-Graphic heat paint markings for simple monitoring of your braking performance.
