Galfer Brakes was founded in Barcelona, Spain in 1946 as a brake pad supplier for major European motorcycle and auto makers by Maffio Milesi. For the most part, Galfer was unknown in the United States until 1992 when Giorgio Milesi (one of Maffio Milesi’s three sons) moved to Santa Barbara, CA with his son Sandro to open Galfer USA. Sixteen years and 2 locations later, Galfer USA resides in a 12,000 square foot Oxnard, California warehouse that services North and South America, Australia and the far east.
Although all Galfer brake pads are still made in our Barcelona factory, Galfer USA is at the forefront of brake technology. All Galfer stainless steel brake lines are made in the same building as our sales and management and design teams. And many of Galfer’s rotors are now made right here in Southern California.
Here at Galfer, we make it a point to be the first to get you the latest applications. Our relationships with top race teams and the OEM manufacturers allow us to get our hands on the newest bikes before the public does so we can make sure that our replacement pads, lines and rotors bolt up perfectly. We are constantly developing new brake pad compounds, better ways to route your brake lines and developing our patented Wave® rotor technology so that you, the end consumer has brake products from us that are truly state of the art. Feel free to call us as our knowledgeable, courteous staff is here to help you with all of your brake performance questions.
