WRP Front Brake Disc
What gives WRP discs their premium stopping power?
Laser Cut AISI 420 Stainless Steel
Laser cut for accuracy, the AISI 420 grade stainless steel is a heat treated, high carbon steel for ultimate strength and corrosion resistance. The steel undergoes a lap-grinding process to ensure a perfect and parallel surface for good pad/disc contact and ultimate stopping power.
The contours of the WRP wavy discs don't just look good - they provide superior heat dissipation to prevent brake fade
The experienced engineers behind WRP discs incorporate ventilation/cleaning holes into the disc design to both reduce weight and constantly clean water away from the surface of the pads.
The 'controlled float' of a WRP floating disc allows for a small amount of lateral movement in the friction surface, allowing for better disc centering in the caliper and therefore, better braking grip. Metal expands under high temperatures such as under heavy braking - in a solid disc this would cause warping, but in a two-piece floating disc the steel has the freedom to expand leading to preventing disc warping
7075-T6 aluminium hub
WRP use a sturdy, corrosion resistant heat treated aluminium, saving weight compared to other materials or solid discs.

Motorcycle Disc brakes : what they are, how they work and how to fit them...
The disc brake is a wheel brake which works by stopping the motorcycle wheel from rotating using friction. The friction is caused by pushing the brake pads against the brake discs hydraulically, using a set of calipers. The brake disc is connected to the wheel and/or the axle and this friction causes the wheel to slow down or stop by converting the motion (or kinetic energy) to heat. Disc brakes first appeared in 1962 but have evolved and become more sophisticated since then.
There are several different types of disc brakes available now:
Drilled or Slotted Discs:
These are disc brakes with holes or slots drilled into them. This serves several purposes, the holes let the rainwater through them more easily so that the brake discs don't get so slippery when it's wet. They also cool more quickly helping the efficiency of the brakes by preventing overheating. Slots machined in the disc aid the removal of dust and oil residue and help to deglaze the brake discs so that they are less slippery.
