In the VAG world there’s only one thing that says you mean busi­ness more than a big, fat set of stop­pers - and that’s a big, fat set of stop­pers with Revo plas­tered down the side. But what makes this par­tic­u­lar brand one of the most sought-af­ter out there? Well, the fact of the mat­ter is that Revo only de­velop prod­ucts specif­i­cally for the mo­tors they know best. And, although that means you can’t have a set of these 380 or 355mm mon­sters as a di­rect bolt-on up­grade for your Nis­san Juke, if you’re rock­ing a VW Golf, Skoda Oc­tavia, SEAT Leon or Audi A3/S3, you’re prop­erly golden.

Revo say these kits have been ‘ag­gres­sively tested in a vari­a­tion of con­di­tions in both road and track sce­nar­ios’, which is the po­lite way of say­ing they’ve spent months kick­ing seven shades of shite out of them on all sorts of hard­core tuned ma­chin­ery. Se­ri­ously, we’ve seen their sort of test­ing be­fore, it’s au­to­mo­tive car­nage at its very best! The hard­ware is also engi­neered to Revo specs by Al­con, who are one of the big­gest brands in the busi­ness. Ba­si­cally, they don’t come any more hard­core.

Full kits con­sist of some mighty monobloc six-pots, two-piece float­ing discs the size of small moons and suit­ably durable Ferodo DS per­for­mance pads. They’ll even chuck in braided lines and a bot­tle of Mo­tul DOT 5.1 rac­ing fluid to get you go­ing. You can’t say fairer than that, can you?

Per­for­mance aside, Revo have cre­ated some­thing that ev­ery VAG owner han­kers af­ter here, and that’s some­thing that looks just as amaz­ing as their posh hoops.
