  • 3000 - The light version

    Based on our Orion series, the AX3000 is the epitome of all that is technologically possible today! We pulled out all the stops to optimize this brake right down the very last fibre.

    A top-quality fibre type originating directly from factory motor sport and our own, specially adapted resin system are pressed together using the highest possible pressure in our autoclaves to make highly rigid and stiff composite materials.

    Stiffening layers made of unidirectional carbon help keep the material's weight in check, stiffen the system precisely where necessary, and also give it its unique appearance. Leaf springs made of CFRP and a rear brake axle made of high-strength aluminium round off the whole package. The AX3000 is truly a worthy representative of our Premium Selection! All of these steps lead to a sensational overall weight of 120 grams – complete and ready to assemble as a brake block set for front and rear, including brake shoes, brake linings and sleeve nuts! The brakes are offered as a complete set.

    The set includes adjustable brake lining mounts made of aluminium, featuring innovative spherical contact surfaces that prevent the mounting screws from bending. Titanium brake mounting nuts for the front wheel brake and aluminium nuts for the rear wheel brake ensure a secure fit on the frame and fork. The supplied brake linings are specially adapted to provide optimum functionality with carbon rims.

  • 'Made in Germany' has always been exemplary for quality products made in Germany and is considered a seal for quality worldwide.

    AX Lightness goes one step further: Our new icon 'laminated in Germany' symbolizes our hand-laminated way of production - off the mass production. In our ax-lightness manufacturing we produce hand-made individual and unique specimens, except for the occasional carefully-selected machine processes.
    And even during the final inspection of a production process, we trust the instincts of our experienced employees.Particularly in times of increasing globalisation, great importance is attached to manufacturing in Germany with regard to quality requirements of international customers.
    The business location Germany and the use of high-quality raw materials such as high-performance fibres which are not available in low-wage countries, give birth to outstanding products on the one hand and secure the future of our jobs on the other. For Axel Schnura, it is important to give Germany a perspective for the future, to assume responsibility for his employees and to make secure the new generation’s future.
