Alcon Announces Front- And Rear-Brake Upgrade For Ford Raptor, F-150

Alcon has released a complete brake upgrade for the Ford Raptor and Ford F-150, suitable for on- and off-road use.

MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Alcon, a Tamworth, England-based manufacturer of brakes, clutches and actuation for motorsports, OEM, aftermarket, specialist and armored/military vehicles, has released a complete brake upgrade for the Ford Raptor and Ford F-150, suitable for on- and off-road use.

Alcon now is offering a complete brake upgrade for both axles, including calipers, rotors and pads. Extensively tested, the kit has shown significant gains over factory-fitted equivalents, according to the company.

The calipers included in Alcon’s brake upgrade feature ductile iron housings that provide maximum strength and stiffness, plus high resistance to both impact and fatigue. They’re coated in epoxy acrylic paint over an acid zinc finish for corrosion protection.

Additionally, all calipers come with advanced wiper seals around each piston, which not only are resistant to the extreme temperatures generated by hard braking, but also prevent road grime from entering the caliper itself, according to the company.

Both the rotors and pads included in the kit offer improved stopping power, according to the company. Alcon rotors have a larger thermal capacity, meaning you can brake harder for longer without having to fear brake fade. The pads have been chosen for their increased surface area and long working life, meaning they perfectly complement both the rotors and the calipers.

Designed to make installation swift and simple, the brake upgrade is compatible with the stock parking brake and actuation mechanism, while still fitting within the 17-inch alloy wheels fitted by Ford from the factory, according to Alcon.
