Pretty beefy 4-piston calipers.

I would suspect a lot of the hardware is contracted out to Brembo.

Reason I ask is the front caliper architecture is a bit different from what Iím used to seeing from Brembo. Thanks in advance.

I recall reading somewhere they were Akebono calipers but I am not entirely sure.
