Braking

E-mail Print PDF

Cayman divides Braking into three separate regions:

  • Light applications as performed by a customer to slightly reduce their vehicle speed.
  • Normal applications as a customer would perform to bring their vehicle to a stop.
  • Maximum Braking to bring their vehicle to a stop as quickly as possible.

The vehicle's braking performance in the above categories requires evaluation on all types of surfaces: dry, wet and low friciton snow/ice surfaces. A small sample of the subjective and objective criteria used to evaluate the vehicle includes:

  • Amount/linearity of travel
  • Amount/linearity of pedal force
  • Amount/linearity of deceleration rate
  • Ease of pedal modulation
  • Vehicle body control throughout the events

Cayman experts will ensure your vehicle meets its targets for Braking while seamlessly integrating the other vehicle dynamics attributes.
