Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
anti-lock braking system prevents wheel locking up and stopping suddenly. Advantage: the car remains fully steerable! A central electronic control device with speed sensors at each wheel reduces the number of revolutions of a wheel - or all wheels, recognizes the danger of locking and immediately reduces the brake hydraulic pressure to that wheel. The type of ABS hydraulic unit contains 3 to 4 channels at the wheel brake cylinders. On wet or dry roads, the braking distance is usually the same or less as the same vehicle without? ABS. Braking distance may be longer on snow or gravel. Attention: for emergencies push the brake pedal "hard".
