Multiple Tow Vehicles

With no in-cab wiring, trailers fitted with the Hygo MkII can be towed without brake controllers.



Two Tier Brake Options

Economy Hydraulic Drum Brakes

These Drum Brakes are an affordable alternative to their EU counterpart. These are a very effective braking option for those working with low clearances. Perfect for enclosed trailers such as horse floats and race trailers. For maximum maintenance reduction and hub longevity check our our all new Unihub.

High Performance Patriot Disc Brakes

Trailparts Hygo MkII brake systems use the tried and tested Patriot disc brakes. Proven through thousands of sets sold/fitted to be the most efficient and long lasting trailer brakes on the market. Developed Locally in New Zealand, the brakes have large vented rotors for dynamic cooling when in heavy use. See more about our Patriot Disc brakes


Advantages over EU import trailers:

Less down time:

Parts are NZ designed, and replacement parts such as brake pads are available off-the-shelf.

Lower lifetime costs:

Replacement parts cost less compared to pricey EU parts. And low-maintenance disc brakes can be used instead of the cable and shaft mechanical drum brakes used on all EU trailers.

Customization is possible:

Trailers can still be completely customized and designed to suit your application – and not restricted to the designs that importers want to sell you from their stock.
