Ridewell Suspensions has approved the Bendix ADB22X-LT air disc brake, engineered specifically for trailers, for use with its 5- and 5.75-in. trailer axles.
With up to a 23,000-lb. brake rating and a virtual absence of brake fade or degradation of stopping power, the ADB22X-LT offers a braking solution capable of meeting a wide range of needs, the company said. The air disc brake design also eliminates the possibility of rust jacking, and its internal self-adjustment mechanism can help lower the risk of brakes being found out of adjustment during inspection, which can affect CSA scoring, the company added.
“As interest in air disc brakes continues to increase in the North American market, Ridewell strives to offer components that pair with the leading edge of the technology,” said Matt Aton, project engineer at Ridewell Suspensions.
