This Hydraulic Handbrake was designed and manufactured with no expense spared. Every aspect of these units was perfected to eliminate any play or improper motion of the master cylinder’s actuation. The fit and finish of all components used in these assemblies are flawless to ensure that the completed product looks as good as it functions.
Main Body: The lower body is CNC laser cut and formed from T304 Stainless Steel. The master cylinder mating face is cut from T304 then milled to mate perfectly with the Main Body. The mating seams are TIG welded by hand. Standard and Compact Wilwood master cylinder sizes and variants are available.
Lower Handle Assembly: The lower handle body is milled from billet 6061-T6 aluminum. A surface treatment of clear anodize is applied to finish the lower body. The lower joint mating the handle to the body is taken care of by two sealed bearings pressed onto a 303 Stainless Shaft. The Mating joint between the master cylinder and the handle consists of a 303 Stainless Steel pin and hardened revolute bushings. This double shear joint ensures no wear will occur over time.
Upper Handle Assembly: The upper handle and knob are both removable and interchangeable. The handles are CNC machined from 6061-T6 and are finished with a clear anodize treatment. The knob options are turned from either white or black Acetal.
Hardware: All hardware utilized in these handbrakes is stainless. The three retaining ring variants used are 400 series stainless. The button head fasteners mating the Lower Handle to the Main Body are 18-8 stainless. For mating the master cylinder to the Main Body, custom 303 stainless studs were turned, as the perfect size is not available off the shelf. The hex nuts coupled with the master cylinder studs are 316 stainless.
The total height of these units in standard form is approximately 390mm (depending on master cylinder rod adjustment).
Custom handles and knobs can be produced upon customer request. The standard handle length is 260mm. Special order, raw billet units can be provided (no anodizing on aluminum components). As well, the stainless Main Body can be powder coated in custom colours upon request. Please contact us via our contact form to inquire about pricing and lead times on custom set-ups.
