Ventilated Front Disc Brakes and 4-Wheel Disc Brakes (All)



What’s the Benefit?

These designs help optimize braking performance for greater driver confidence.

 

The Feature:

To minimize brake fade, all Honda models use ventilated front disc brakes. 

  • Disc brakes have a superior ability to dissipate heat, which is further improved by ventilating them. 
    • The vents are radial fins cast into the disc between its outer and inner surfaces.
    • They act like the blades of a turbine, forcing air through the disc as it spins and carrying heat away.
  • Most Honda models use 4-wheel disc brakes that provide an additional measure of control and heat dissipation.
