Trail-Braking, Glossary and Terms, Automotive, Motorcycle, Boat Dealers
List of United States Automotive, Motorcycle, Boat, Dealers, Service Stations
A driving technique in which the driver begins to brake before entering a turn and then continues to brake as he eases into the corner. As cornering forces build, the driver gradually feathers off the brakes, trading braking power for cornering grip. By increasing the vertical loading-and thus the traction-at the front tires, trail-braking can improve a car's turn-in.
