Black Diamond Performance Brakes

Since their launch in 1992 the Black Diamond performance brake disc and pad range has gone from strength to strength. The first fast car test in 1995 in which black diamond was awarded the win against all the other major brands, it became clear that all the design and testing work prior to the launch was so very worth while. The 24 groove disc, the groove shape and profile and the post machining heat treatment all playing their part in making this product a world beater.

In 1996 Black Diamond were invited to take part in the first Max Power magazine awards test against all the other major world brands in the performance braking market, Black Diamond came out on top by such a huge margin that Max Power decided not to issue a second place prize! Our competitors were forced to wake up and in the next years awards we came equal first with another brand and in the next awards 1998 / 1999 after a Black Diamond pad compound tweak (Black Diamond Predator), Black Diamond won out right again and is still the current Max Power award holder. Now with over 1050 part numbers in the range we believe this to be the largest range of performance brakes in the world!

Black Diamond Performance Brake Hose Kits

To complement the braking side of our program we needed to have a range of stainless steel brake hoses. Black Diamond hoses are made as close to oe specification as possible and many applications come complete with line locators using high specification hose with stainless steel over braid to hold the strength of the hose. Using Black Diamond braided brake hoses will give you a superbly firm and controllable brake pedal action. Black diamond stainless steel hoses are guaranteed forever. (subject to conditions)

Black Diamond Performance Clutches

As Black Diamonds worldwide reputation grew and grew we where continually being asked to supply a wider range of performance products. The most common request was for a fast road performance clutch. Utilizing black diamonds expertise in high performance friction materials and advanced production techniques a performance clutch kit was borne. The Black Diamond clutch can transmit 20% more torque than any oe or after market clutch kit and has stronger driven plate springs stronger diaphragm springs and high temperature friction material.

After months of testing on both road vehicles and on our test simulator the black diamond power clutch was launched. The test simulator is now used to test every clutch kit prior to packaging to ensure a perfectly matching kit. After the first year the range was increased five fold to over 50 part numbers and we currently have another 25 part numbers under development.
