Kenworth’s flagship T680 on-highway truck now comes standard with Bendix ADB22X front and rear air disc brakes.
While the Bendix ADB22X front air disc brakes have been standard on the T680 for several years, Kenworth is now pairing them rear air disc brakes as standard.
Bendix ADB22X air disc brakes are designed for shorter stopping distances, enhanced safety, lighter weight and lower overall maintenance costs. The two-pin floating caliper design provides consistent force distribution and also reduces brake fade without degradation of stopping power, according to Bendix.
“Fleets and truck operators purchasing new Kenworth T680s can benefit from the superior performance, automotive-like feel, lightweight design, and ease of maintenance offered by Bendix ADB22X front and rear air disc brakes,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director. “These brakes also exceed the federal government’s RSD (reduced stopping distance) requirements for enhanced safety, offer extended brake change intervals, and provide weight reduction.”
