Abstract: A brake pad having a backing plate and a friction pad, with the friction pad including a particular slot configuration in the friction surface. The friction pad includes a slot with a main body portion and an angled cutout portion. The angled cutout portion includes a radial arc extension that helps form a continuous cooling arc at a portion of a top radius of the peripheral edge of the friction pad. The slot features can help promote desirable airflow patterns while the brake pad is in use.
Abstract: A roof anchor including a mounting portion including a plurality of holes formed therein and an anchor portion having an opening formed therein. The mounting portion and the anchor portion are planar members arranged substantially perpendicular with each other. The anchor portion is disposed along one side of the mounting portion with a bend portion formed at an intersection of the mounting portion and the anchor portion. The mounting portion and the anchor portion form a monolithic piece. The opening includes a lower edge and an upper edge, wherein the lower edge is closer to the mounting portion than the upper edge, and wherein a length of the lower edge is greater than a length of the upper edge.
Abstract: A bicycle brake disc having a braking track with brake pads and a plurality of first connection portions that extend towards the inside and that comprise respective first connection areas; a second component having (i) a radially inner annular coupling portion for coupling with a hub of a wheel of the bicycle and (ii) a plurality of second connection portions. The second connection portions extending outwards from the radially inner annular coupling portion towards the first component and comprising respective second connection areas; connecting members active between the first connection areas and the corresponding second connection areas. The second connection portions comprise at least one respective pair of arms that extend between the respective second connection area and the radially inner annular coupling portion, the pair of arms defining a through opening between them.
