Description

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 brakes and hope they don't overheat? Downshift and 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. Under those conditions, things can happen in a hurry. 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 with no mechanical additions. 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.

At Banks, we believe there's no such thing as having too much braking power. Upgrade to a Banks iDash DataMonster and add user-selectable downhill speed, plus so much more!

If you’ve been in a situation where you’ve needed to pull up on the reins on your truck and trailer quickly, we think you’ll agree.

Gale Banks What’s at Stake. Safety is and ought to be the number one concern when you’re behind the wheel of your truck. At minimum, you want to protect your valuable property. But what we’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 and affordable solution.

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.
