Cadence Braking

The controlled and intermittent application of the brakes that is simultaneous with the shock action on the front suspension system. This technique of applying brakes brings the vehicle to stop quickly without locking the wheels and losing steering control.

Delicately controlled application of brakes in rhythm with the natural shock absorption frequency of the front suspension system helps   bring the vehicle to a stop quickly without locking the wheels and losing steering control. The grip required for stopping at a short distance is obtained just before the tires make the transition from rolling to sliding friction or lock-up. Cadence braking gives more braking power to the vehicle and avoids the distance that may be covered if the vehicle is decelerating if the brake was applied just once. The pedal is thus pumped in accordance with the response received from the front suspension system, weighing of the brakes and the condition of the road. This leads to an intermittent lock down of wheels due to which the vehicle remains on its route, slowing down considerably with each application of brakes.  This technique of braking reduces the stopping distance significantly without a complete lock down on the vehicle wheels. The pedal is not released completely but merely feathered from firm pressure to a lighter grip. This technique of applying brakes intermittently like a pump action can be tricky. Cadence braking requires a lot of consideration even on softly sprung cars, and it is virtually impossible with stiff springs. However, if this technique were to go wrong, it can lead to an accident as depends on many factors like the road conditions, stopping distance to be covered, sensitivity of the brakes, etc. The modern technology braking systems like ABS work with the cadence braking principle.
