About Galfer USA Galfer Performance Motorcycle Braking Systems

History

Galfer Brakes was founded by Maffio Milesi in Barcelona, Spain, in 1946 as a brake pad supplier for major European motorcycle and auto makers. For the most part, Galfer was unknown in the United States until 1992 when Giorgio Milesi – one of Maffio Milesi’s three sons – moved to Santa Barbara, California with his son Sandro to open Galfer USA. Galfer USA resides in a 12,000 square-foot warehouse in Oxnard, California, and services North and South America, Australia and the Far East. Although all Galfer brake pads and rotors are still made in our Barcelona factory, Galfer USA is at the forefront of brake technology. All Galfer stainless steel brake lines are made in the same building as our sales, management and design teams.

The Company

Galfer USA employs some serious riders and racers-from local MX and desert experts, track day and canyon riders, family trail riders and even a couple of big V-twin cruisers hitting up highway 1 on the weekends. Of course, it all starts from the top with Giorgio, a former Moto Guzzi factory racer who currently rides a Suzuki DL1000 and still leaves most of us eating his dust…

Here at Galfer, we make it a point to be the first to get you the latest applications. Our relationships with top race teams and the OEM manufacturers allow us to get our hands on the newest bikes before the public does, so we can make sure that our replacement pads, lines and rotors bolt up perfectly. We are constantly developing new brake pad compounds, better ways to route your brake lines and developing our patented Wave® rotor technology so that you, the end consumer, has brake products from us that are truly state of the art. Feel free to call us, as our knowledgeable and courteous staff is here to help you with all of your brake performance questions.
