Saves valuable centimetres – the brake system

Brake system

To minimise stopping distances, we have fitted the Atego with a pneumatically actuated braking system with internally ventilated discs all round and ABS as standard. Not to mention a constant pressure system operating at 10 bar. The brakes respond faster, leaving more valuable time for the actual braking process. Even after the brakes are used repeatedly in quick succession, there is no fade or delayed response. An engine brake and constantly open throttle valve are available as standard.
