Better suited for salt water
In contrast to standard drum brakes, both the swing arm and the calliper of our disc brakes are hot-dip galvanized. In addition, all small parts that operate the brake pads are made of stainless steel, making everything much more suitable for salt or brackish water.
30% more braking force, so you stand still faster
Disc brakes brake more powerfully and quietly than drum brakes, making it a lot safer for you when you are on the road with your expensive boat on your Vanclaes trailer. In addition, disc brakes are more resistant to overheating and are easy to clean and maintain.
100% waterproof Oil-filled wheel bearings
The axles of your Vanclaes boat trailer - when you select the option disc brakes - are coming with watertight oil-filled wheel bearings.
