More and more people are switching their trailers over to disc brakes, and
with good reason. Disc brakes deliver consistent braking - even at highway
speeds - unlike drum brakes, which often show a substantial drop in braking
torque at higher speeds. In addition, disc brakes offer a substantially shorter
stopping distance than drum brakes.
Disc brake calipers have only one moving part, rather than the many found
in drum brakes. This means that there are fewer parts to maintain, fewer parts
to get damaged and fewer parts to have to repair or replace, thus reducing
Cap Style Rotor Assemblies
The over the hub style rotor is made from cast iron, matching SAE
specifications. E-Coated Cast Iron is ideal for high-temperature operations and
offers a favorable friction coefficient to ensure adequate stopping power.
Kodiak's rotors are vented to effectively dissipate heat, dramatically reducing
the incidence of heat-related damage.
Kodiak calipers are constructed of E-Coated Cast steel to prevent flexing
. Less flex means more braking torque, resulting in smooth, even braking every
time. The corrosion-resistant stainless steel piston is 30 percent larger than
standard pistons, ensuring shorter stopping distance and increased torque. In
addition, the unique low-drag design of Kodiak's calipers allows the piston to
retract farther than in most standard models, giving you a cooler-running brake.
Designed for axles with 5-bolt brake flange configurations, the included
mounting brackets are made of heavy-duty, corrosion-resistant E-Coated steel
that is embossed to provide additional threading for guide bolts. The added
thread strength ensures a tighter, more secure connection between the caliper
and bracket. Another unique feature of Kodiak's brackets is the side-support
angle, which guarantees that the load is carried by the bracket, rather than the
