ABS Rings

ABS rings work in conjunction with ABS sensors to provide information to the Anti-lock Braking System controller about the road speed of the wheels.

If one or more wheel is found to be out of sync, the ABS controller applies pulsed pressure to prevent the wheel from locking up.

To compliment our extensive range of ECE-R90 Approved Brake Pads we also stock a comprehensive range of Wear Leads.

Wear leads are an integral part of the braking system, when the pad wears down to a predetermined level, the brake pad sensor comes into contact with the metal brake disc and creates an electrical circuit.

This in turn illuminates a warning light on the dashboard which informs the driver that the brakes need replacing.
