A New Breed of Brake Parts

Opteve Brakes are brakes designed by installers for installers. As installers, owning Brake Check, the founders of Opteve know that when people aren’t happy with their new brakes, the installers will be taking the heat for it, not the manufacturer. The Founders of Opteve were tired of having customers bring brakes back within days of install due to brake noise caused by insufficient brake friction. They searched the current market for a vendor that could provide brakes that met the standards they set out for brake friction, durability, performance, and longevity, but couldn’t seem to find any that wasn’t either making an expensive branded product, or a brake that just wasn’t up to their standards as installers. They recognized a dire need for brake parts that were built to the standards that would ensure customers left satisfied and stayed that way for the long haul, but at the same time cut out the middlemen and resellers that forced prices on premium brakes so high.
