Power Stop Extreme Performance brake rotors and pads were first introduced in California in 1997. Over the years, Power Stop has earned a reputation for high quality by assuring tight tolerances and the best materials. The company's mission is to provide the best solution for your vehicle's braking problem. Power Stop uses extensive testing to develop the best rotor and pad combination for your vehicle and driving style. They take the guess work out of selecting the right pads and rotors.
Today, Power Stop is more committed to new product development and innovation than ever before. Their demanding criteria mandates high pad bite without high temperature fade or pedal pressure deterioration. The company uses independent dynamometer testing to validate brake performance including pre-burnish (green) friction, high temperature brake fade, pedal pressure sensitivity, speed sensitivity and noise.
Power Stop's Chicago area distribution center is ideally located to service all parts of country quickly and cost effectively. They manufacture a limited range of brake rotor applications in the Bedford Park, IL, facility. A larger percent of Power Stop performance brake rotors are manufactured to the company's specifications, blueprints and processes developed over years of experience by the manufacturing partners overseas. Each rotor is carefully analyzed for the best drill or slot pattern and modeled with CAD software. Power Stop drilled rotors are designed to maximize convection heat transfer and work in concert with the high mu (friction coefficient) brake pads. The company uses the finest castings and carefully countersink the holes to prevent stress risers. The Power Stop team has over 200 years of combined automotive experience.
PowerStop and Bondurant
PowerStop Extreme Performance Brake Systems and the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving are proud to announce a breakthrough partnership to keep the roads safer and the drivers more secure.
Bondurant, considered the premier high performance driving school in the US, and Power Stop, the leader in brake kits in the US, have aligned their products and services to raise awareness of the Power Stop “1-Click Brake Kit®” system, which is set to innovate the way the cars keep us safe.
"We are honored and humbled to enter into a collaborative partnership with the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving," states Arvin Scott, Chief Executive Officer at Power Stop.
"This partnership marks a significant milestone in Power Stop’s growth and development as the leading performance brake program in North America. Power Stop is in the early stages of developing a race track/street performance brake package, and the testing, analysis, and feedback from the drivers and staff at Bondurant School of High Performance Driving will greatly assist our engineering team in developing the safest and most reliable high performance braking for auto enthusiasts all over the world."
Power Stop, the #1 e-commerce brake kit supplier in the United States, has signed a five (5) year agreement with Bondurant to provide rotors, brake pads, and calipers to the school in a strategic partnership. The partnership will allow the Bondurant team to test those brake assets on their 1.6 mile track, while providing constant feedback and results to Power Stop for continuous improvement of the brake system.
"The thrill of partnering with a premier brake performance brand at the school is amazing" states Bob Bondurant, Chief Executive Officer of the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving.
"We offer the highest quality, most advanced training techniques in the world. On the street or on the racetrack, the capabilities of most cars are way above the capabilities of most drivers. The Bondurant school tries to even that out, and with the Power Stop partnership we will be able to improve the safety for drivers everywhere. At the school we are always looking at ways to improve the curriculum and safety of our students and this is another way of accomplishing that."
Darren Law, Chief Operating Officer at Bondurant, is excited at the prospect of partnering with such an established name in the brake industry.
"Bondurant is very selective in its partnership agreements and after working with Power Stop, understanding their capabilities from an engineering standpoint, and knowing the positive reputation they hold within the industry, we feel this is the perfect partnership. We look forward to helping them advance and grow their product line as well as having them help us improve the performance and safety features of our cars," he said.
