Drum brakes

The drum brakes are made up of a brake drum and two brake shoes which press the pistons of one (or two) brake cylinder(s) against the rounding of the drum brake.

In the case of a heavy load, heat causes the drum to expand, which may lead to fading. Due to the limited loading capacity, drum brakes are particularly suitable for rear axles.
