The Wave design was invented by Galfer in the early 90’s to solve the problem of water and mud on brake rotor surfaces of trial competition motorcycles. As they developed the design, they discovered an added benefit: the brake system was running cooler. This was worth exploring. When they combined their new design with the premium materials they had already developed for their round rotors, the resulting breakthrough began the new generation of brake rotor technology.
