Brake Rotors Galfer Performance Motorcycle Braking Systems

The Wave© brake rotor design was invented by Galfer in the early 90s as a solution to water and mud on brake rotor surfaces of trial competition motorcycles. As we developed the design, we discovered an added benefit: the brake system was running cooler. When we combined our new design with the premium materials we had already developed for our round rotors, the resulting breakthrough began the new generation of brake rotor technology - led by Galfer..
