The BMW X5 M is not only fast when on the move, but also rapidly comes to a standstill. Its lightweight high-performance brakes allow undiminished enjoyment of a dynamic driving style, thanks to outstanding best figures from 0 to 100 km/h – and from 100 km/h to 0.
The brake discs are connected in a floating arrangement and respond quickly and effectively even under difficult conditions such as extreme heat or in pouring rain. Thanks to clearly defined pressure points, the braking force can always be applied precisely. This also systematically minimises fading – the decline in braking performance at high temperatures.
The high-performance brakes in the BMW X5 M also actively contribute to improving driving dynamics in another respect: using aluminium brake disc chambers and locating them behind special light-alloy wheels significantly reduces the rotating and unsprung masses. The noticeable result is top braking figures in any weather conditions on any surface. Top performances in terms of handling and agility.
