WHY UPGRADE ?
All the power in the world is next to useless if your stock brakes aren’t up to it. Our Monoblock Performance Brake Upgrade is an ultra-durable braking solution developed exclusively for Polo GTI AW for fast-road and occasional track.
We’ve developed these brakes for street use from our decades of motorsport experience, and, as you’d expect, they provide outstanding stopping power again and again. Yet, all at an affordable price.
Our lightweight Monoblock one-piece construction is usually reserved for the highest-specification motorsport kits, being vastly stiffer and lighter than the original calipers.
The kit comes in at almost half the weight of the original for significant unsprung mass savings. The caliper, pads and bracket assembly weigh in at 4.4kg (9.7lb) vs 8.6kg (18.9lb) for the factory Golf 7R kit.
A bigger, 345mm x 30mm ‘triple-grove’ disc gives greater heat capacity, thus reducing the effect of fade.
Our extensive development programme on piston sizes gives beautiful progressive pedal feel – and that’s because (unlike many) we only develop brakes for VWG cars.
The 'Monoblock' construction of our 4-piston aluminium thin-profile calipers give extreme stiffness and light weight, and aid in wheel clearance packaging.
GROOVED & VENTED
The 345mm x 30mm discs, with integral mounting bells, use our ‘Triple Groove’ design across the face for improved bite and debris clearance.
One-piece discs made from high cast carbon - a mixture of high quality steel combined with carbon; giving a far higher friction coefficient compared to normal steel rotors.
Engineered exclusively for the Polo GTI AW, with piston sizes matched to master cylinders and servos for perfect responses and a beautiful pedal feel.
Composite Ceramic Sport Pads are included with the Polo GTI AW kit with the ideal compound for fast-road use. This kit uses a generic pad size, meaning you can choose your ideal pad type and brand.
FULL INSTALL KIT
Everything you need for installation: discs, callipers, mounting brackets, fast road pads, braided steel lines. Plus the option of Hub Adaptors for extra wheel clearance. Bolt on & drive!

For perfect fitment, we recommend aftermarket wheels for the best clearance over these brakes.
If used with factory OEM wheels, fitment will require around 10mm spacer on most models, depending on wheel type. Please see fitting template download below.

PRECISION ENGINEERED FOR PERFECT PERFORMANCE.
Monoblock single-piece caliper forging for strength and lightness
Triple hook groove design for improved bite & debris clearance plus reduced distortion / vibration
Cast Carbon disc material withstands high temperature stresses without excessive material expansion
Composite Ceramic fast-road pads with working temperature 50C-700C & 0.48 friction rating. Harder compound pads are also available
Saving unsprung weight is really important on a performance car.
So we've spend a lot of our development and design time making sure that our Performance Brake Kit cuts as much weight out as possible. Our Monoblock Aluminium construction is the key to this saving - a single piece caliper is stronger, stiffer and can therefore be lighter than equivalent 2-piece calipers.
