Calipers

Raybestos offers three grades of calipers:

Each caliper is friction-ready, giving you the freedom to customize the brake pads you load into each caliper.  

Our calipers are extensively tested to ensure they meet the strictest physical, performance and safety requirements, delivering a finished product that is:

  • Safe
  • Reliable 
  • Leak-free 

Element3™ New Plated Caliper

Element3™ Calipers, our newest and most advanced line of calipers, features 100 percent brand-new parts, including the core and bracket. No core return is required, leaving you with more space on your shelves and providing your customers with a hassle-free purchase. 

Zinc plating on cast iron housings and brackets gives Element3 calipers the edge in corrosion protection.

R-Line Plated

R-Line Plated Calipers are our premium line of remanufactured calipers, featuring zinc plating that offers superior protection from the elements. 

R-Line Remanufactured

R-Line Remanufactured Calipers are our professional-grade calipers, offering our most complete application coverage. Each caliper is made with re-manufactured products and is rigorously tested to ensure reliable braking performance.
