Kenworth has announced it will make Bendix ADB22X front air disc brakes standard on its Class 8 tractors and trucks.

The Bendix ADB22X air disc brakes have a two-pin floating caliper design that provides a more stringent overall dimension accuracy and consistent force distribution, according the Bendix, Also, the ADB22X design also significantly reduces brake fade with no degradation of stopping power. Bendix recently marked the production of its 500,000th ADB22X air disc brake.

Kenworth previously offered Bendix air disc brakes as on option on its Class 8 Trucks. It says for additional weight savings, the air disc brakes also come standard with an aluminum hub and splined disc rotor assembly.
