0

Alcon is proud to announce the latest additions to its motorsport range, the PBA800 sliding pedal box and MAR96 ABS compatible master cylinders. Designed to meet the FIA fixed seat regulations, this new floor mounted pedal box is the most competitive in weight and stiffness on the market.

Aimed initially at FIA GT teams, Alcon’s pedal box is currently being used by GT manufacturer teams such as Aston Martin Racing and Bentley Motorsport. Developed working closely with the teams, our engineers benefited from professional driver feedback to design the PBA800 and make it the best pedal box on the market.

Available in three configurations: 1 pedal (brake), 2 pedals (brake/clutch or brake/throttle) or 3 pedals (throttle/ brake/clutch), this modular pedal box is mounted on two linear bearing rails using high-performance polymers as a sliding surface, providing smooth adjustment and a maintenance-free mechanism.
