Akebono Brake Industry says its 6-piston calipers and disc brake pads are now on the front wheels of Volvo’s XC60 T8 Polestar Engineered, which became available in Japan from 6 November.

The disc calipers, which are supplied to Volvo, are 6-piston aluminum mono block opposed calipers developed for high-end and high-performance vehicles.

“With Akebono’s pads, the front brakes provide superior stopping performance at high speed, under severe load and at high temperature, along with the comfort which is required for premium vehicles,” noted Akebono.
