International Truck announced Thursday it will make Bendix ADB22X air disc brakes standard on all axles of 6Ă—4, 6Ă—2, and 4Ă—2 LT Series trucks.

International Trucks Senior Vice President of Global Product Development Denny Mooney says the disc brakes help the company with its increased uptime initiative while also providing a higher degree of safety for the driver.

The Bendix ADB22X air disc brake from Bendix Spicer Foundation Brake LLC (BSFB) features a lightweight design that reduces stopping distance and extends brake system life. In addition, total cost of ownership can be reduced by installing air disc brakes, which generally allow for significantly shorter pad change times than traditional drums.
