The difference between winning and losing is a very fine line...
On every mile of every race track the importance of high performance precision braking control has been proven. Total feel and response give you the confidence you need on the road. The difference between an average driver and a great driver is those who can control speed and those who cannot. Speed is nothing without control and it's a very fine line - Which is why HEL Performance only supply very fine lines.
Fully CNC machined from 6082 aluminium and finished in either Nickel GP inspired Plating or Black Anodised. Comes complete with brake fluid reservoir, reservoir bracket, tubing, thumb master cylinder and fork bracket to mount.
The HEL Performance Thumb Brake features a multi-position lever so that the individual can set the product where comfortable. The levers can be extended in situ to meet the riders' needs. The lever features pressed in bearings, something we will be looking to include on the standard master cylinders in the future, to offer minimal interference.
All the metal parts are machined in-house at our HQ in Exeter, UK and assembled by hand before being checked, engraved with an individual warranty number and packaged ready for despatch.
Solid Billet CNC Machined
Many calipers on the market today are forged to hit a lower price point. This limits design as threads and internal flow circuit need to be machine detailed afterwards. HEL calipers are precision machined entirely from race grade solid billet 6082-T6 aluminium - maximising weight and minimising material used. Machined and forged calipers are NOT comparable, so be sure to insist on machined for the very best design, precision construction and finish on the market.
Complete Circuit Technology
Unlike some calipers which only feed from one side, HEL calipers utilise complete circuit technology. This race inspired feature allows fluid to fully circulate the caliper meaning easier and faster removal of air from the system when bleeding.
Heat Sink Pistons
HEL's stainless pistons act as a heat sink drawing the extreme temperatures generated when racing down into the piston - and away from the caliper body where the fluid circulates. This keeps the fluid at optimum operating temperature and away from boiling point (which varies depending on fluid specification). On track and on the limit the performance advantage is simply stunning, allowing fade-free powerful braking and ultra consistent feel - lap after lap after lap.
World Class Research & Development
The HEL brake lab develops all braking products directly from a huge resource of track data collected from HEL's Superbike and Road Racing teams. The NEW caliper design is based around very extreme race loading values taken from worst-case scenario calculations - the maximum amount of front brake force possible before the bike would start rotating around the front wheel and actually flip. Structural integrity, stiffness and displacement resistance are all fully optmised for prolonged on-limit use.
