The shoe element is connected to the brake carrier by a holder and the cam is connected to the brake lever without a bearing, by means of which it can be pivoted. The brake device according to the present invention has the advantage that it can be produced mechanically in large numbers in a simple manner, its characteristics can be influenced by design measures, and it has a high level of efficiency, so that reduced actuating forces result and possibly simplified actuating elements may be used.
