Kenworth Truck Company will make Bendix ADB22X front air disc brakes standard on Kenworth 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 to Bendix, 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.

“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.”
