Introducing the all-new Banks Brake.
TOP OF THE HILL... NOW WHAT?
You've crested that big hill and need to start thinking about slowing down. What do you do? Ride your service brakes and hope they don't overheat? Downshift the transmission and possibly over-rev your engine? Look for a runaway truck ramp??
DON'T GET PUSHED AROUND!
When you've got a heavy load behind your truck and steep downhill grades to deal with, instead of feeling in control you can sometimes feel helpless. Not anymore. The new, all-electronic Banks Brake offers total safety and a whole lot more.
HOW DOES THE BANKS BRAKE WORK?
It works by modulating systems already found on the vehicle... no mechanical additions whatsoever. And its level of braking power and intensity is completely user-selectable at the turn of a switch. It's extremely easy to install, even easier to use, and best of all, we're offering Banks Brake at a value price previously unheard of!
Towing a heavy load and dealing with steep downhill grades can be a scary proposition. Under those conditions, things can happen in a big hurry. At Banks, we believe that thereâ€™s no such thing as having too much braking power. If youâ€™ve been in a situation where youâ€™ve needed to pull up on the reins on your truck and trailer quickly, we think youâ€™ll agree.
Whatâ€™s at Stake. Safety is and ought to be the number one concern when youâ€™re behind the wheel of your truck. At minimum, you want to protect your valuable property. But what weâ€™re really talking about is protecting your very life, the lives of your passengers, and even the lives of those in the vehicles around you potentially. When you need to slow down or stop in a hurry, do you have the real-time braking power and control necessary for true peace-of-mind? Well, Banks engineers have designed a most elegant â€” and affordable â€” solution.
Slow In A Hurry. Our Banks Brake delivers exactly what you needâ€¦ firm control over your truck and trailerâ€™s downhill momentum and the ability to pull up quickly if the need arises. With its easy-to-use switch control, you set the braking intensity and Banks Brake does all the rest. Your desired downhill pace is achieved and your service brakes stay cool and at the ready should conditions call for their supplemental use. Most important of all, you can rest assured and enjoy the hilly country rather than fear it.
Only Banks. Banks Brake is truly in a league of its own. By delivering enough stopping power to bring your truck to an absolute crawl â€” intelligently and automatically â€” only Banks puts safety and peace-of-mind back on your side. The next time you crest a big hill with your truck and trailer, make sure youâ€™ve got the Banks Brake riding shotgun.
Upgrade the switch to a Banks iQ and you add user-selectable downhill speed (25-75 mph) which is automatically maintained by the SpeedBrake, plus so much more!
