OBP Vertical hydraulic handbrake. Drifting and Rally driving requires extensive use of the handbrake, which can show weaknesses in standard cable type handbrakes. The hydraulic system eliminates the weaknesses as in the 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.
These hydraulic handbrakes from OBP are constructed out of lightweight steel with a black powder coated finish, giving you an extremely strong product that will last a lifetime. Due to the lightweight design these units are no heavier than some of the the more expensive aluminium designs. These systems are predominantly for competition use and feature a 280mm long lever and box, clevis assembly and rubber grip handle.
A hydraulic hand brake can be added into the rear brake line system without changing the original mechanical handbrake setup.
Optimum Balance have an array of interesting products and the range of hydraulic handbrake kits is no exception. The usual choice of master cylinder is the 0.625 bore one, but you can choose from the list, along with bias valves and other items above. Shown with a master cylinder fitted for illustration purposes.
