Performance: The Future of Foundation Brakes – ADB Technology

Foundation brake assemblies of the future in commercial vehicles are trending to a focus on higher performance, lighter weight, and improved safety. This focus points to adoption of air disc brake (ADB) technology, with a move away from traditional drum and wedge brakes.

That means the MAXXUS 2.0 single-piston ADB is your smart choice because it offers up to 65% fewer parts* than double-piston technology, reducing complexity which can lead to faster, easier maintenance. Additionally, the use of redundant seals on both the guide pin and piston boot help ensure internal components are protected from dirt and debris damage; making for a more reliable brake solutions, optimized for advanced protection and increased uptime.

Need a lighter variant? That’s MAXXUS™ L2.0. Weighing just 67 lbs., MAXXUS L2.0 offers a 16% weight savings compared to the current generation ADB – MAXXUS 1.0. MAXXUS L2.0 offers the same updated features and high-quality performance as the MAXXUS 2.0, while covering more than 90% of U.S. standard truck applications.
