Air Brakes on 40' Ventana LE?

What type of brakes? I see some conflicting information online, but I see a brochure from Freightliner that shows Bendix Air Disc Brakes with ABS on front and just Bendix on back. I did a quick search on this forum and could not find an answer. I thought is was Air Brakes.


Thanks in advance.

The Ventana has air brakes on the entire coach. Just not disc on the rear.

DS Don has it right. "Air brakes" is really a nebulous term. There are conventional drum brakes as well as disc brakes that are air operated. And, "Bendix" is a brake products manufacturer of both drum and disc brakes.

The Ventana LE has air-operated disc brakes on the steer axle and air-activated drum brakes on the drive/tag axles.
