Brembo has strengthened its aftermarket line-up with the launch of the Greenance Kit Concept, a jointly developed new range of combined special alloy discs and dedicated brake pads.
Directly derived from the company’s extensive and continuous innovation in the Original Equipment (OE) market, Brembo says its latest solution aims to combine top braking performance with a lower environmental impact, while also increasing disc life.
Launched at Automechanika Frankfurt, Brembo claims the Greenance Kit Concept ensures a much lower environmental impact with a significant reduction in emissions: 83 per cent in PM10 and 80 per cent in PM2.5.
These solutions have already achieved the ECE-R90 homologation tests as well as the most severe benchmark road tests, which are conducted by the company’s technicians, according to Brembo’s stringent requirements.
Deriving its name by merging the words ‘Green’ and ‘Performance’, the Brembo Greenance Kit Concept is a solution that anticipates low environmental impact requirements. It matches both customer expectations and eagerness to contribute to a sustainable environment, without any compromise on top braking performances, Brembo claims.
“Innovative and revolutionary, the Greenance Kit Concept embraces some of the most relevant cornerstones of Brembo’s DNA,” says Roberto Caravati, Brembo Aftermarket GBU COO.
“We have a constant commitment to sustainability which is associated with top performances and a willingness to take on and anticipate the upcoming and most challenging opportunities and megatrends of the automotive industry, meaning that we are actively contributing to a better and more sustainable future mobility.
“We are always working to improve our production processes and to introduce new and better solutions that are more innovative and attentive towards the planet and the environment. The Greenance Kit Concept makes a further contribution in this direction and to our mission of being a solution provider,” he concludes.
According to Brembo, this new solution guarantees extended mileage and a significant improvement in terms of the total cost of ownership of vehicles. It ensures better durability of the brake discs, “triplicating” their expected lifetime.
This leads to an optimisation of maintenance costs that is a top priority for professionals and drivers who require longer mileage for their vehicles, such as light commercial vehicles and fleet cars.
The Greenance Kit Concept is part of the new Brembo Beyond product line, the company’s replacement range tailored to improve the driving dynamics of the new mobility generation geared towards sustainability.
Brembo’s Greenance products will bbe available on the market as a kit solution (discs and pads) in the second quarter of 2023.
