Kenworth says it will make standard the Bendix ADB22X front and rear air disc brakes on its T680 on-highway truck.
The Bendix ADB22X front air disc brakes have been standard for several years. Friday’s announcement officially introduces rear air disc brakes as standard equipment.
Kenworth Marketing Director Kurt Swihart says the brakes also exceed the federal government’s reduced stopping distance requirements for enhanced safety, offer extended brake change intervals and provide weight reduction.
Bendix ADB22X air disc brakes offer a two-pin floating caliper design that provides consistent force distribution. The design also reduces brake fade with no degradation of stopping power, according to Bendix.
