AlumaSport Series Drilled and Slotted Brake System by Baer®. This is a value-packed braking kit with big 14-inch rotors designed to give your 4x4 equipped with oversize wheels and tires enhanced looks, and enhanced stopping power for towing. Choose Alumasport one-piece rotors available in front and rear kits, or Alumasport Plus two-piece rotor kits for the front. Vehicles with OEM disc brakes will receive bolt-on replacement components that fit without modification, and those with original drum brake configurations will also receive a drum-to-disc conversion kit. Aluminum calipers are finished in durable powder coat and come pre-loaded with ceramic brake pads that offer superior heat disbursement, longer life, quieter operation, and lower dust levels.

- Caliper heat-resistant coating prevent cracking and fading
- Floating calipers are smaller and lighter than fixed calipers
The Alumasport line of front and rear brake kits has been custom designed for the 4x4 owner who has big, heavy wheels and tires fitted on their vehicle. 14-inch rotors create visual wow behind the wheels, and huge amounts of surface area create stronger yet progressive braking best suited to heavy trucks and the trailers they may be towing. Components are designed for easy, bolt-on installation when replacing OEM front disc brake systems. If your vehicle was built with drum brakes, you'll receive an Alumasport kit with pieces needed for drum-to-disc conversion.
At the heart of the Alumasport braking kit are the calipers - tested and refined relentlessly by Baer in order to achieve the perfect balance of performance and control. Engineers determined radially mounted calipers maintain greater stiffness under load, and these are built that way to ensure pads stay in proper alignment with the rotor. Perfectly balanced performance means using superior materials to ensure components continue to work as well tomorrow as they do today by staying free from corrosion.
Baer matches the high level of caliper performance with ceramic brake pads that come pre-loaded inside each caliper. Used in championship racing where 200 mile-per-hour speeds quickly generate blistering heat, ceramic brake pads offer the natural ability to stay cool under the most severe conditions. When ceramic brake pads are combined with the slotted and perforated design of the rotors, heat buildup is reduced so extensively that brake fade rarely occurs - because brake fluid stays cool enough to avoid reaching boiling temperatures. Ceramic brake pads are far quieter due to their higher resonant frequency undetectable by human ears, so squealing is not an issue. And finally, ceramic compounds last longer and produce finer, less obtrusive dust that does not stick to most wheel surfaces. Ceramic brake pads also feature racing-grade backing plates that more effectively prevent heat buildup.
