Advantages versus Leaf Spring Axles:
Durability: The cartridge construction offers superior resistance to abrasive road
elements, increasing the life and durability of the axle. Because the cartridge is press fit inside the axle tube, it forms a water ltight seal, thus allowing the axle immersion without having the tube inside exposed to corrosion.
ride and longer life: The high quality proprietary formula rubber guarantees a smoother ride and longer life. The independent suspension allows each wheel to travel totally independent from the others. A smoother ride, less sway and reduced noise is achieved with the rubber suspension.
Progressive Torque: It increases carrying capacity as the lad is applied, allowing smooth ride even with an unloaded trailer.
and stronger: The specially engineered one piece forged spindle
arm creates a system which is safer and stronger than any welded unit. The axle tube acts like an extra cross memeber, adding strength and preventing frame twisting. The rubber cartridge is completely encapsulated inside the axle tube, so there are no pinch points.
The splined arm is adjustable for a range of starting angles to suit
special applications. The axle can be built with various start angels to achieve desired trailer height.
Damping Control: Because of the rubber natural vibrations absorbing capabilities, no shock absorbers are required.
replacement: Unlike welded systems the Flexiride® spindle arm
can be removed easily for repair or replacement.
installation: The axle assembly requires only four bolts to
mount reducing installation time.
Maintenance Free: Because there is no metal-to-metal contact, there it eliminates the need for lubrication of the components. There are no suspension parts to wear out. (spring shackles, hangers, etc.)
Built-to-suit axle system reduces lead times and inventory.
Warranty: UCF offers a five year warranty on components, that demonsttrates how confident they are with the Flexiride suspension.
