Eau Claire, WI (April 10, 2018) – CURT, the leading manufacturer of USA-made hitches and a complete line of towing products, is changing the game for brake controls with its revolutionary new Spectrum™ brake control. With its unique design and powerful interface, the Spectrum™ is not simply an accessory for the vehicle, but truly becomes an integral part of it.

Unlike any other brake control available on the market, the Spectrum™ controls all brake settings with a simple push-button rotary knob. This knob mounts onto the dash of the vehicle, integrating with the other buttons and dials and providing a clean, OEM-style look and feel.

Also unlike other brake controls, the interface of the Spectrum™ is separated from the main module. While the knob is mounted on the dash of the vehicle, the main module can be installed anywhere, at any orientation, out of sight. This allows for cutting-edge brake control technology without the bulkiness and intrusive feel of other brake controls.

The Spectrum™ brake control features a highly responsive, easy-to- read interface. Embedded in the rotary knob are ten tri-color LEDs. These LEDs ramp up and change color depending on the brake control’s mode and settings. The LEDs also communicate trailer brake activity and can be adjusted for sunny or low-light conditions.

Powering the Spectrum™ is an advanced triple-axis accelerometer that provides smooth, safe stops for virtually any vehicle-trailer combination, on any grade. Whether going up a hill or down into a valley, the Spectrum™ detects the motion of the vehicle and supplies the exact amount of power needed to brake safely and effectively.

The CURT Spectrum™ brake control is also easy to install and is made from quality components for long-lasting operation. It allows for two different mounting options – a surface-adhesive mount on the dash or a drill-mount through the dash. It is also compatible with all CURT quick plug harnesses for a custom fit with no splicing required. Like all CURT brake controls, the Spectrum™ is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
