KIBS Control

1. ABS performance equivalent to the current model (enhanced braking stability)

By monitoring front caliper hydraulic pressure, KIBS regulates pressure increases reducing the tendency of the rear to lift. Before the ABS system fully reacts, KIBS system prevents the pressure from increasing too quickly thus suppressing rear lift. And after the ABS has decreased pressure to prevent wheel lock, it prevents a sudden pressure increase that could induce rear lift.

2. High-precision ABS to enhance front and rear braking performance

By monitoring front caliper hydraulic pressure, the KIBS system is able to regulate pressure changes precisely, so that slips are minimized resulting in smooth operation compared to the conventional ABS system.

3. Rear brake control enhancement during engine braking

By recognizing rear wheel slip due to engine brake force during aggressive throttle operation, and at high rpm or downshifting, the KIBS system prevents unnecessary ABS intervention to the rear wheel compared to the conventional ABS system.
