Detailed Description

TOST 4″ Shoe Brake Wheel

TOST 4 Inch Liliput Shoe Brake Wheel

General Description

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.

TOST Aircraft Wheels

TOST wheels are worldwide used in gliders, motor gliders, aircraft, ultralights, amphibian aircraft and helicopters. Also in heavy-duty applications TOST wheels convince with high load factors and customer oriented solutions. High serviceability is an important feature of an aircraft wheel.

Not only the quality and life time persuade, but also the ease of maintenance: the wheel hubs are maintenance-free and fitted with high–quality groove ball bearings. TOST can supply spare parts over decades and offer maintenance and repair of your wheels. TOST wheels MADE IN GERMANY are a synonym for highest quality and reliability.
