KIRKLAND, Wash. – Kenworth has announced air disc brakes from Bendix will be made standard on the steer axles of Class 8 tractors.

The Bendix ADB22X reduces brake fade with no degradation of stopping power, according to the company. Bendix recently produced its 500,00th ADB22X brake.

“We’ve offered Bendix air disc brakes as an option on our Class 8 trucks previously. Customers appreciate their superior performance, car-like feel, ease of maintenance, and light weight design, while they also exceed the federal government’s RSD (reduced stopping distance) requirements,” said Kurt Swihart, Kenworth marketing director. “These benefits are so compelling that Kenworth decided to make air disc brakes standard on Kenworth Class 8 trucks. For additional weight savings, the air disc brakes also come standard with an aluminum hub and splined disc rotor assembly.”
