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 – and his wife Carmen Farreras decided to move to Santa Barbara, California with their children, Monica, Sandro, and David to open Galfer USA. Galfer USA began in a 12,000 square-foot warehouse in Oxnard, California -- until 2018, when Galfer USA moved to Carson City, Nevada.
Galfer USA services North and South America, Australia and the Far East. All Galfer stainless steel brake lines are made at our U.S. headquarters in Carson City, while our brake pads and rotors are manufactured in Barcelona. We pride ourselves on being the leading manufacturer of performance braking systems for motocross, road racing, ATV, Side-by-Sides, mountain bikes, and more.
The Galfer USA team includes some serious riders and racers, ranging from local MX and desert experts, track day and canyon riders, family trail riders and even a couple of big V-twin enthusiasts. 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 OEM motorcycle 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 and researching better ways to route your brake lines and developing our patented Wave® rotor technology so that you have Galfer brake products that are truly state of the art. Feel free to call us, as our knowledgeable and courteous staff members are here to help you with all of your brake performance questions.
