Black diamond is one of the best UK manufacturers of performance brake products

 Black diamond have long been one of the most respected names in the UK for performance brakes. Since their launch in 1992, they have gone from strength to strength with a range of brake discs and brake pads to fit most makes and models of vehicle on the market.

Black diamond produce three types of performance brake disc each with their own advantages.

Black Diamond Drilled Brake Discs.

Drilled brake discs are designed to improve cooling under braking. The hotter the brakes the more likely they are to suffer from an effect called "brake fade". Fade reduces the stopping power of the brakes and is common under heavy or frequent braking or when braking from high speeds. Drilled discs help the brakes to cool under braking reducing the effect of fade and improving braking performance and stopping distance.

Black Diamond Grooved Brake Discs.

Grooved brake discs, or slotted brake discs as they are sometimes known, have grooves cut out from the face of the disc from the centre towards the outside edge. The number and design of these grooves varies depending on the brand of brake disc. These slots help vent particles and gas build up from under the pad and ensure better pad to disc contact under heavy braking, a process known as deglazing. By keeping the pads and disc face free of the dust and gas which is created under braking, fade is reducing and the vehicle stopping distances can be improved. The potential downside of heavily grooved discs in that they can reduce the life span of the brake pads.

Black Diamond Combi Brake Discs

As the name suggests, the black diamond combi discs are a combination of drilled and grooved. They are both drilled for extra cooling, and have grooves cut into them to deglaze the pads. The Combi discs are in my experience the most popular discs in the range and give impressing braking performance over the OEM brake setup, especially when fitted with the superb Black Diamond Predator brake pads.

Black Diamond's success isn't just luck. It is the extensive research and design, and the quality of their performance brakes that has ensured that they have won every brake comparison competition they have entered in both Max power and Fast Car magazines.

The first fast car test in 1995 in which black diamond was awarded the win against all the other major brands, it became clear that all the design and testing work prior to the launch was so very worth while. The 24 groove disc, the groove shape and profile and the post machining heat treatment all playing their part in making this product a world beater.

In 1996 Black Diamond were invited to take part in the first Max Power magazine awards test against all the other major world brands in the performance braking market, Black Diamond came out on top by such a huge margin that Max Power decided not to issue a second place prize! Our competitors were forced to wake up and in the next years awards we came equal first with another brand and in the next awards 1998 / 1999 after a Black Diamond pad compound tweak (Black Diamond Predator), Black Diamond won out right again and is still the current Max Power award holder. That is why www.dcperformance.co.uk are proud to be official Black Diamond Brake Disc and Pads dealers.
