Q & A

What's in the Box

The Airheart 175H Series hydraulically actuated caliper disc brake has a longer piston than the 150x1 caliper and provides better braking. It is typically used on spindle mount wheels & most Hallcraft/Dayton wire wheels. Designed to mount on a 1/8-inch disc.

  • Body made of die-cast aluminum alloy
  • Friction linings available in both hard and soft materials (sold separately)

Requires type D.O.T. 3 brake fluid. 

Notes

  1. Warning: Do not use mineral based (red) fluid in brakes designed for automotive brake fluid, or vice versa. Use of the wrong fluid will result in brake system failure. For this 150x1 caliper, use type D.O.T. 3 (which is automotive brake fluid).
  2. Mounting requires that either the caliper or the disc must float.
