Roger,
Both the housing and pistons are aluminum.
The original Matco single piston caliper is 546g. The new triple piston caliper is 1015g.

Thanks Chris,

Was just little confused since you mentioned titanium.
I did not think its was lighter. But I assume you would redesign the dimension with titanium
and get the same strange and lower weight.

Hadn’t really considered titanium at the time. It would cost a fortune, for sure. Just for kicks, I looked up the cost of a bar on McMaster 1”x 3/4”x12”. $227. There are probably cheaper sources, but you get the idea :wink:
