Pons to finish the season with J.Juan Thumbrakes

Pons Racing, one of the teams with a fighting chance at the Moto2 World Championship, will be sporting J.Juan Thumbrake systems from the Silverstone GP on. These thumb brakes have proven very succesful the last couple of years.

The new agreement will allow Aron Canet and Sergio García Dols to better control their rear brakes for the last 12 races. Our Thumbrake allows you to control your rear brake with your left thumb, without conflicting with your rear brake pedal. Sometimes, you tilt your bike to extreme angles, and you get your foot off the pedal, but the thumb can still control the rear brake.

Pons Racing, one of the leading teams in the championship, has been very willing to colaborate with us and improve with our system, which does not replace their current system, but is a complementary safety system for the pilots. With their support, the brake systems by the Catalan firm might improve quite a bit.

Sergio García Dols has raced with our systems since he started his career at the Spanish PreMoto3 Championship, now rebranded to ESBK, just like Aron Canet, who is going to try to win the championship in these last few races.

For Giuseppe Micheletti, “it’s an honor to be able to interact with a Moto2 team like Pons Racing, which is one of the championship’s most iconic teams. We are proud to be one of their technical sponsors”.

Edgar Pons said “everyone in Pons Racing is proud and happy to have J.Juan on their side. They come to us with valuable experience and we can help them improve and develope their products. Also, we celebrate the fact that two firms founded in Barcelona work together and share values at the box and beyond, which make them unstopable.”

J.Juan is the world leader in the manufacture of meshed metallic hydraulic tubes and the second European manufacturer of motorcycle brakes. It is a company founded in 1965 in Barcelona (Spain), employs 640 people directly. The company is part of the Brembo Group, world leader of brake technology, founded in 1961 in Bergamo (Italy), with more than 12.000 employees in 15 countries on 3 continents, with 29 production and business sites. Brembo owns prestigious brands such as AP, AP Racing, Breco, Bybre, J.Juan, Marchesini and SBS Friction.

J.Juan brakes success in the Dakar

J.Juan brakes success in the Dakar

J.Juan’s Side by Side brakes have prevailed in the two categories in which these vehicles compete; T4 and T3. The t4 (SSV) are vehicles closer to the series model marketed by the manufacturer; The T3 (light prototypes) performance can be increased.

In T4 J.Juan’s mastery of the brakes has been spectacular. Among the first 30 vehicles, only 2 (18th and 29th) did not have brakes from the Barcelona brand (Spain). The domain has been overwhelming and devastating. The category was won by Austin Jones (USA), followed by Gerard Farrés (ESP) and Rokas Baciouska (LTU).

In the T3 category there were 22 vehicles among the top 30 that fitted J.Juan brakes, who won 7 of the top 10 places, including the triumph of Francico “Chaleco” López (CHI) and the second place of Sebastian Eriksson (SWE ).

This is the fourth consecutive year that vehicles equipped with J.Juan brakes have won the Dakar in the Side by Side category, as is the case in almost all the major off-road events held in the United States and those organized by the FIA (International Automobile Federation)

Tomorrow, we will release how are the brakes that dominate this mythical race.
