When it comes to brakes, Volvo Z-Cam brakes gives you an especially high degree of control.
Furthermore, in a Volvo tractor-trailer, the brakes between the tractor and trailer is synchronised to avoid jack-knifing. The stopping distance is shorter, stability is improved and road-holding is better, when compared with a conventional braking system.
Since the solid brake discs are made of a material that is particularly heat-resistant, they also reduce the risk of brake fade in repeated harsh braking, and minimise the likelihood of disc warp caused by thermal extremes.
The Volvo Z Cam brakes also have a self-adjusting system which avoids the need for periodic checks and typically have a longer-life.
