Bendix’s expertise in disc brake rotors has been applied to the design and manufacture of these new brake drums. This range is specifically designed for utility vehicles and light passenger cars, ensuring high performance and reliability.

High-quality metallurgy in Bendix Brake Drums provides strong braking performance and low noise operation, alongside a confident and consistent pedal feel. For optimal performance, Bendix recommends pairing these brake drums with their own Bendix Brake Shoes, although they are compatible with most brand brake shoes.

The E+ Original Equipment Fit of Bendix Brake Drums is designed to be a direct replacement for original equipment (OE) drums, meeting or exceeding all OE specifications. This feature ensures peace of mind for workshops and vehicle owners.

One of the standout benefits of Bendix Brake Drums is their SwiftFit surface protection, which allows the drums to be fitted immediately without the need to clean anti-rust oil or coating from the surface. This feature saves installation time in the workshop and helps prevent corrosion for an unlimited shelf life and longer fault-free service.

Additionally, the new brake drum range is presented in FSC™ Certified exterior packaging, making it suitable for curbside recycling pick-up. The packaging also includes Bendix’s new ‘Easy Carry’ finger holes, which are pre-punctured to allow each box to be handled more easily.

Bendix’s new brake drum range represents a significant addition to their product line, offering high-quality, reliable options for a variety of vehicles.
