All New Brake Upgrade for Ford Raptor and F-150 by Alcon

Alcon, global leader in the design, development and manufacture 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 both on- and off-road use.

Ford’s performance trucks are among the best in the world, with both the Raptor and F-150 being capable of impressive feats of acceleration. Alcon is now 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:

– 10% reduction in disc temperature when in use

– 33% reduction in pad work rate (leading to a corresponding improvement in pad life)

– Up to 15% decrease in pedal effort

The calipers included in Alcon’s brake upgrade feature ductile iron housings which 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 – a combination that’s proven to offer excellent 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.

Both the rotors and pads included in the kit offer improved stopping power. 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 new brake upgrade is compatible with the stock parking brake and actuation mechanism, while still managing to fit within the 17-in alloy wheels fitted by Ford from the factory.

Suitable for on- and off-road use, Alcon’s upgrade kit for the Ford Raptor / F-150 is now available for order. It will be on display at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Oct 31 – Nov 3 (Las Vegas Convention Center, Upper South Hall, booth #35233).

Fits: 2010–2014 F-150 Raptor, 2017 F-150 Raptor and 2009-on Ford F-150.
