Hydraulic handbrakes eliminate the weaknesses found in standard cable type handbrakes. The hydraulic system connects into the brake line that runs to the rear calipers and requires a lot less force to completely lock both rear wheels when needed. A hydraulic handbrake is used by drivers to lock up or break loose the rear wheels when they want to drift the car sideways or spin on the spot. The Aluminum Handbrakes tend to be approximately 200 grammes lighter than their Steel equivalents. With a polished finish and two handle types, these Aluminium Handbrakes are very popular. The Steel Handbrakes tend to be slightly cheaper for those on a budget, and where weight saving is not vital. Manufactured in Mild Steel with a powder coated Black finish.
