Figure 5

Detail of patented B-17 phantom brake caliper assembly. The compact construction provides exceptinal structural rigidity to the caliper. The twin piston design puts two big pistons close together to provide one of the most powerfull calipers available for motorcycles. Because the entire fork leg structure is used in the caliper. The caliper is both structurally sound has excellent heat absorption properties. The structured rigidity in the clamshell mode is far superior to other leading calipers.
