Retrofit To Disk Brake Wheels
Many modern gliders and power gliders are originally equipped with disk brake wheels nowadays. To make available their advantages also for elder aircraft types, TOST offers retrofit kits from shoe brake wheel to disk brake wheel.
Depending on the aircraft type the available space varies. With very tight space in the landing gear box the existing shoe brake wheel has to be replaced by a complete new disk brake wheel. If there is more space available, a brake disk only can be fitted to the existing wheel hub, after removing the shoe brake assembly.
