Kia Brake Calipers are a part of the complete braking system and contributes to vehicle braking by transferring kinetic energy into heat via friction between the disc and brake pad material. The calipers do this by squeezing the brake pads against the surface of the brake disc. Kia brake calipers are very complex Kia parts which obviously play a vital role in the safety of your vehicle. Kia’s brake system is manufactured to withstand high temperatures and extreme weather conditions. This is how Kia’s genuine brake caliper’s contribute to accident-free driving. Kia brake pads are developed together with Kia brake disc to fit inside the Kia brake calipers. This combination ensures that Kia genuine brake components will deliver superior braking performance with minimal occurrences of comfort issues such as brake noise, vibration and distortion.
Kia’s brake calipers are designed with high requirements in areas such as run-out, thickness variation and balance in order to minimize disturbances such as brake vibration and brake noise. In addition, brake discs turn at the same speed as the wheels and an unbalanced brake caliper can vibrate significantly, accelerating wear and reducing comfort and braking performance.
