Reasons to Invest


  • Orbis Brakes use 50% less raw materials, plus, we believe that our reductions in CO2 emissions in creating steel for brakes can dramatically shift the industry.


  • Vehicle brakes represent a $20.9+ billion market that has not seen a disruption since the 2001 introduction of expensive carbon-ceramic brakes. (source)


  • As brown carbon emissions will be a globally regulated form of emissions in the near future, Orbis Brakes is positioned to capture a significant portion of the industry. (source, source)

OVERVIEW


Orbis Brakes: The New Name in Lightweight High-Performance Brakes


Driven by innovation, collaboration, and real-world solutions, Orbis Brakes is changing the equation for what we believe is the most important part of any car or truck: the brakes.


Enlisting patented technology developed with scientists at NASA, Orbis Brakes uses a revolutionary aerodynamic design to dramatically reduce unsprung weight, speed cooling, improve traction, fuel efficiency, and range, and deliver the kind of market disruption that we believe carbon-ceramic brakes couldn’t—Formula One performance at a station wagon price.


Pound for Pound, we believe Orbis Brakes are the best value in the automotive aftermarket.



*The above is a rendering of a future product. Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development and is not yet available on the market.


According to our research, our technology is disruptive for established brands, as the Orbis/NASA brake is offered at a lower price, has been shown to improve safety and performance, and uniquely addresses brown emissions as studies show are a thousand times more harmful to human health than exhaust emissions. (source)


*The above is a rendering of a future product. Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development and is not yet available on the market.


We believe that Orbis Brakes team is a proven innovation engine powered by an exceptionally talented team representing a diversity of backgrounds and industries that has banded together to create patentable technologies.

the problem


Brown Emissions Kill Millions Every Year (source)

Ever heard of brown emissions? They are the particulate matter from brake, tire, and road surface wear. They are considered to be a thousand times more harmful than tailpipe exhaust, responsible for millions of deaths each year. Urban driving exacerbates brown emissions, so naturally, it’s expected to become a major public and regulatory issue.



Pollution from Manufacturing and Mining


In brake manufacturing, CO2 is released into the atmosphere. Not to mention the mining of iron ore causes air pollution in the form of nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide from diesel generators, trucks and other equipment. The mining of iron ore also causes water pollution of heavy metals and acid that drains from the mines. (source)


Ever see a truck going at a high speed up an off ramp? That’s brake fade.



Brake fade is a temporary and sudden reduction in braking power, caused by excessive heat in the system from braking repeatedly, under high loads or at high speeds. (source)


the solution


Lower Cost, Less Mass, Cooler Brakes


Imagine getting Formula One level braking on every road you drive.


Orbis Brakes collaborated with NASA to create a rotor design with a "Periodic Wave" pattern that generates surface cooling—whereas traditional rotors depend on less effective internal venting for cooling. The “Periodic Wave” design allows heat to be shed from spinning objects. This transforms a simple piece of low cost iron into a high-performance, aerodynamic brake technology that operates at cooler temperatures than current state-of-the-art technologies.


*The above is a rendering of a future product. Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development and is not yet available on the market.


Orbis Brakes Cool 2x faster than conventional brakes. (source)


As these brakes operate at lower temperatures, they emit significantly less brown carbon emissions. And while emissions are a significant environmental problem, the bigger problem is that hot brakes lead to brake fade and can cause people to lose control of their cars and trucks which can lead to significant injuries and even loss of life.

Here’s a closer look at our brake products:

*The above is a rendering of a future product. Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development and is not yet available on the market.


We have a business model similar to some of the largest automotive brand suppliers, and what makes us unique is our unprecedented improvement in performance at a highly competitive price.

the market


We think Orbis Brakes is About to Turn the Market Upside Down


That's because vehicle brakes represent a $20.9 billion market (source) that has not seen a disruption since the 2001 introduction of high-performance (but hugely expensive) carbon-ceramic brakes. (source)


*The above is a rendering of a future product. Images are computer generated demo versions. Product is still currently under development and is not yet available on the market.


We Believe Orbis Brakes is a game changer for the $20.9 Billion Global Brake Industry (source)


And while carbon ceramic brakes offer extraordinary performance—they can cost between $10,000 and $20,000 per set (source, source). The cast iron Orbis Brake offers equivalent performance but at a fraction of the price. These representations are supported by independent testing, expert media-based evaluations, and collaborations with industry experts including NASA.

our traction


We’re Getting Validation


In the last 6 months alone…


  • Orbis has an exclusive agreement with NASA for all car and truck brake innovations
  • In independent lab and supervised testing, Orbis Brakes showed a 50% weight reduction and a 2X faster rate of cooling than brakes offered by the leading brands
  • We are in broad discussions with OEM's and Tier One suppliers regarding adoption and distribution.


Here’s a better look at how we got here:

Why invest


Investing in Orbis Brakes is an Opportunity to Change the Automotive Industry for the Better

Orbis Brakes is here to transform the large, but idle, brake industry. We want to make our revolutionary lightweight, low-cost cast iron brakes an industry standard, reducing brown carbon emissions while we’re at it.


Source: Motor Trends


Our goal is to perpetuate a level of innovation with proprietary technology, allowing us to produce our brakes in the USA and create high-paying and high quality jobs while maintaining our competitiveness in the global marketplace.


We want to be the most trusted brand in braking. And considering that consumers are interested in a greener, safer America where 87 million vehicles (source) need brake replacements annually—we think this is the right time and place.


Invest in Orbis Brakes, and transform the future.

Celebrity racer Paul Gerrard aka “American Stig” to join Orbis Brakes booth at Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion

4 days ago

Orbis Brakes Teams with fellow racing pro and product evaluator Tim Moser in presenting first-ever Stellar Performance in Braking Award 

 

Professional racecar driver, author, and television celebrity Paul Gerrard will be making a booth appearance and co-awarding the Orbis Brakes Stellar Performance in Braking Awards at the 2022 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion August 17- 20 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. 

 

A successful formula car racer and precision driving instructor, Gerrard earned a spotlight as the slightly mysterious automotive expert and performance evaluator known as “The Stig” on the hit show “Top Gear,” along with appearances on “Mythbusters,” “Speedmakers,” and “Supercars Exposed.” Garrard is also the author of the bestselling book Optimum Drive, detailing the technique of great drivers.

 

Garrard joins racing colleague Tim Moser, Orbis Brakes’ Validation Director, in judging and co-awarding the Orbis Brakes Stellar Performance in Braking Award, to be given to a deserving driver in the four-day Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. Orbis Brakes will also be honoring Alex Zanardi with a special Stellar Performance award in recognition of his legendary pass during the 1996 Indy Finals at the same Laguna Seca track.

 

Orbis Brakes is marking its first sponsorship appearance as Preferred Brake of the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion. The Northern California company has been making news through a partnership with NASA that produced the Periodic Wave™ disc brake, a proprietary design that uses advanced aerodynamics to provide superior surface cooling, reduce dangerous brake fade, extend fuel efficiency, and lower environmental impact. 

 

Visitors to the Orbis booth will be able to meet Gerrard and Moser and get an up-close look at the Ligier LMP3 race car donated by Flying Husky Racing, an organization dedicated to sled dog rescue.

 

Orbis Brakes will host a Pre-Award Ceremony, Trophy Display and Moet Champagne Toast prior to its presentation of the Stellar Performance in Braking Award on Saturday, August 20, 4:45 to 5:45 at the Orbis Brakes Booth located in the paddock across from the Le Mans Heritage display.

Brake Innovator to Showcase New Product Line, Debut Stellar Performance Award at Renowned Vintage racing Event

Orbis Brakes is launching its innovative line of Periodic Wave™ disc brakes in a dramatic way, serving as the Preferred Brake of the 2022 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion August 17- 20 at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

This year’s Rolex Reunion will curate the largest exhibition of winning or historically significant Le Mans cars ever assembled for display and exhibition laps. It is one of only two events worldwide to feature cars currently in private collections or museums returned to racetrack performance. The four-day event is a featured attraction of Monterey Car Week.

The Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion represents the first event sponsorship for Orbis Brakes, the Northern California company that is making news through a partnership with NASA that produced the Periodic Wave™ disc brake, a proprietary design that uses advanced aerodynamics to provide superior surface cooling, reduce dangerous brake fade, and extend vehicle range and fuel efficiency. Orbis Brakes has also attracted attention with its potential to lower environmental impact. Weighing 50% less on average than conventional cast iron brakes, Orbis Brakes are expected to lower carbon consumption across the supply chain, while reducing harmful brown emissions.

Attendees at Laguna Seca will be given a first look at Orbis brake designs, including the NextWave™ and FutureWave™ models engineered to bridge the full brake spectrum.

Orbis will also use the Monterey spotlight to present the first ever Stellar Performance in Braking Award, an honor bestowed to drivers exhibiting superior braking maneuvers on the racetrack. The first award will be given to Alex Zanardi in honor of his last lap pass of Bryan Herta in the final race of the 1996 PPG Indy Car World Series at the same Laguna Seca raceway, still considered one of the greatest passes in the history of motorsports. Another Stellar Performance Award will be awarded to one of this year’s Rolex Reunion competitors as determined by a panel of judges. The Stellar Performance in Braking will become an ongoing award from Orbis, using in-car footage submitted by drivers and teams.

Orbis Brakes will host a Pre-Award Ceremony, Trophy Display & Moet Champagne Toast prior to its presentation of the Stellar Performance in Braking Award on Saturday, August 20th, 4:45 to 5:45 at the Orbis Brakes Booth located in the paddock across from the Le Mans Heritage display

Orbis Brakes Just Hit $100K!

about 1 month ago

To all our investors: 

THANK YOU! And welcome to the Orbis Brakes family.

We are ecstatic to announce that we just hit the $100K mark!  

We’ve had an amazing first 5 days on Start Engine. We will continue updating you with milestones, product updates and market news. 

Just to recap, the $20B automotive brake industry has seen very few improvements in the past 20 years, and we believe that we're poised to shake this industry up with our 50% lighter, more efficient, safer and more cost-effective disc brake.

Our engineering team with input from NASA has been focusing recently on a version of the brake that meets the requirement of 200mph cars. This version of the brake will be undergoing lab and track tests in the coming months and as soon as those results are in, we will publish those findings. Our expectations are high as the most recent lab report showed a 2-times faster rate of cooling than the leading competitor.

Stay tuned for more ‘braking’ news and updates.
