The main cause of brake fade is

A the brakes overheating
If your vehicle is fitted with drum brakes they can get hot and lose efficiency. This happens when they’re used continually, such as on a long, steep, downhill stretch of road. Using a lower gear will assist the braking and help prevent the vehicle gaining momentum.
B air in the brake fluid
C oil on the brakes
D the brakes out of adjustment
