TOST 4″ Shoe Brake Wheel
For a large number of gliders the Simplex shoe brake continues to be the right choice. The advantages are the simple construction, reduced space requirements, low weight, lower force on the brake lever because of the servo action, and of course, the lower price.
TOST's smallest shoe brake wheels Liliput and Kobold are the first choice for club-class single seaters. Smallest possible installation dimensions of the wheels result in very good brake results.
The most popular 4″ Shoe Brake Wheels are highlighted in the table. Other P/N's may take up to 4 weeks for delivery.
