Title: Electric brake device

Abstract: An electric brake device includes a brake pad, an axial force sensor and a controller. The brake pad is pressed against a rotation face of a brake rotor in a direction perpendicular to the rotation face. The axial force sensor detects a pressure of the brake pad. The controller performs a speed reduction control which is an operation target, based on at least one of the pressure of the brake pad and a reduced speed obtained from a wheel speed sensor.
