Abex Air Disc Brakes 
Abex Air Disc Brake (ADB) pads offer more effective braking performance in both over-the-road and stop-and-go applications.  They feature OE-style green coat stripes, which provide consistent performance both out of the box and throughout the life of the pad and aid the initial effectiveness of the brake friction material. 

Abex ADB pads also come with a complete installation hardware kit and meet global ISO performance and wear standards.  It also conforms to 2025 copper-free requirements of less than 0.05 percent by weight, with no copper added to this advanced OE-quality formulation. 

Champion HD Batteries
The Champion product line has expanded to include batteries for the commercial and heavy-duty markets.  This includes both starting and deep cycle batteries in flooded and AGM styles and features a patented fully-framed stamped positive grid that provides for optimal current flow and resists corrosion for longer life.  The 23 products offered are part of a larger line that includes automotive, marine, lawn and garden, power sport and golf cart batteries.
