At just over 7lbs, the aluminum CorkSport Mazda Big Brake Kit shaves almost 7lbs of unsprung weight off of each corner of your Mazda, all while adding more stopping power and a much better pedal feel.
Crafted from lightweight billet aluminum, the CorkSport calipers use an opposed piston design that is fixed to provide greatly improved pad wear and caliper rigidity compared to the OEM design.
Available in 3 anodized colors, this brake system includes everything you need to easily upgrade your stock braking system and includes high strength steel brackets, calipers, stainless steel braided front brake lines, brake pads, all necessary hardware, and one-piece 325mm rotors. Just install and go, no searching for extra parts or ordering additional items. #ZoomZoom!

Weight, heat, and force define the key performance aspects of any brake system.
Despite having a larger rotor, the CorkSport Mazda BBK weighs nearly 7lbs less than the OEM brake system per corner. That is a substantial amount of unsprung mass.
Braking is the act of using friction to reduce wheel speed. The by-product is heat, and a lot of it. With the 4 piston caliper and larger rotor, you have effectively increased the brake system's thermal mass capacity.
With the larger brake pads and 4 piston setup, you are able to apply more force to the rotor at any given time. This reduces stopping times and improves pedal feedback.
CorkSport calipers are manufactured from lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum alloy and anodized for a professional finish.
The CorkSport 325mm rotors are 28mm larger diameter than OEM and are manufactured from FC25 Gray iron for its high heat stability.
Performance rotors were designed specifically for the Mazda 3 to provide great performance without compromising fitment. No wheel spacers are needed to fit these with your OEM 17" or 18" wheels.
All of the needed hardware, street brake pads, and materials required for installation are included with every BBK. The kit features steel braided brake lines to help you get the most out of the brakes. Check out our BBK template here to ensure wheel fitment with our larger calipers and rotors.
Note: Track use and/or extreme heat can fade the anodization resulting in a silver/gold finish. This does not affect performance of the brake kit.
