Akebono Expands Ultra-Premium Disc Brake Pad Line

Akebono Brake Corp. has added eight part numbers to its Ultra-Premium Disc Brake Pad line.

The company added three ProAct part numbers and five Euro part numbers.

Premium stainless hardware is included in the five parts that require it and four of the Euro kits include an electronic wear sensor.

The release includes ProAct brake pads for several Honda, Hyundai and Kia models, including the new CR-V, Optima and Sonata. The company said the release most importantly was a continued expansion of its award-winning Euro line adding coverage for BMW X1, X2, Land Rover Range Rover, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Mini Cooper and Volvo S, V and XC90.  

“With this release, we added coverage to an additional 3.8 million vehicles; all late model vehicle coverage.  Last month we released front pads for several Land Rovers; this month we added coverage for the rear,” said Kirby Pruitt, Article development manager.
