The story of UPBrakes

I am an enthusiast just like you. I like cars and I love driving. When I wanted a brake upgrade with a fixed caliper for my Volvo, I took a look at what was on the market. I quickly became disappointed that even an entry level "BBK" were "lightweight" copy-cats of pricier racing brakes with some serious concerns. And they weren't even cheap! I didn't want to pay thousands "just for looks" I wanted a true upgrade, something I would enjoy all the time and not have to fuss with. Since that didn't exist, I created one myself.
