– EBC Brakes Racing’s ‘Apollo Balanced Big Brake Kits’ offer one giant leap forwards for the performance braking market
– Readily available for the Mk2 Ford Focus ST (2005-2011)
– Featuring 4-piston front calipers, 330mm fully floating two-piece rotors, front & rear Yellowstuff™ pads, braided lines and all fluid/fixtures required
– Proudly engineered in the UK
EBC Brakes Racing’s Apollo Balanced Big Brake Kits represent the ultimate upgrade when it comes to improving stopping power.
Complete with stunning, British-engineered four-piston calipers and all the hardware you need to completely replace all equivalent components of your vehicle’s stock braking system, these complete kits give a firmer and more responsive brake pedal feel and allow you to drive much longer without the onset of brake fade.
Unlike other ‘big brake kits’ on the market – which solely supply the parts for the front axle – every EBC Balanced Big Brake Kit is a full-vehicle upgrade and is supplied complete with matching friction rear pads to fit the original caliper, as well as braided brake lines all-round, ensuring a totally balanced brake upgrade that delivers maximum braking performance.
These kits are now available for the Mk2 Ford Focus ST (2005-2011) – a hot hatch that has become synonymous with fast road and track/race driving, making it the ideal vehicle to benefit from such an upgrade.
Two-piece bolted design that incorporates high-tensile 12.9-grade steel bolts for reinforcement of the caliper bridge section (computer FEA analysis shows that this offers significant improvements in caliper stiffness compared to a monobloc design)
Machined from heat-treated low-pressure castings (this offers a noticeable performance advantage over conventional gravity cast calipers, exhibiting higher overall strength and a comparable caliper body stiffness to forging)
Rather than a powder-coated finish, all Apollo calipers use an advanced high-temperature Teflon™ polyester coating process to ensure they look great for much longer. Currently available in Stealth Black, Storm Shadow Blue, Luminous Yellow and Racing Red
Fully-floating 330x28mm two-piece discs that allow the outer ring to expand freely in response to heat (this reduces stress which in turn extends disc life and reduces the tendency for disc cracking during extreme use)
Drive bobbins machined from a single piece of stainless steel giving maximum strength and corrosion resistance (this reduces maintenance requirements and ensures the outer ring continues to float freely over time)
Every EBC Balanced Big Brake Kit is supplied with EBC Yellowstuff™ pads for both front and rear axles. Unlike other ‘big brake kits’, which solely supply parts for the front axle, EBC includes matching Yellowstuff™ brake pads for the rear axle at zero additional cost. This ensures your vehicle ends up with an optimum brake balance and the rear axle shares a portion of the braking load, giving improved control under braking and shorter overall stopping distances
Excellent cold bite and minimal brake noise make them a great pad for road use, yet they are also capable of operating without brake fade up to 550°C, making them an equally outstanding pad for moderate track use
Every kit is supplied with EBC Brake’s stainless-steel braided brake lines front and rear. Also including rear lines is another market first from EBC and one that ensures that every EBC Balanced Big Brake Kit includes every single piece of hardware you need to result in a truly balanced performance brake upgrade
Every hose has a stainless-steel braided exterior that prevents a phenomenon known as ‘ballooning’, this braided exterior prevents the spongey feel of OE rubber lines and provides greater precision and feel under braking
