Alcon celebrates brake upgrade milestone


Alcon Components, a UK-based brake and clutch company, is celebrating the milestone delivery of over 5,000 brake upgrade kits to the civilian and military armored and specialist vehicle sectors. Alcon brake kits are available for armored and specialist SUVs including Ford’s F550 and F150-based Raptor and Ranger platforms, Chevrolet’s Suburban and Suburban HD, GM’s GMT K2-based platforms Tahoe and Escalade, Toyota’s LC 200, LC78-79 and Hilux, Mercedes’ Sprinter, and VW’s Amaroc and Crafter. All the armored variants of these base platforms have significantly increased gross vehicle weight (GVW), often by over 30%, which is why brake upgrades are required.

To celebrate the delivery of the 5,000th brake kit, the company is offering a 25% discount for any new enquiry for trial brake upgrade kits received before February 28, 2019.
