SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Ridewell Corporation has announced that its Flex-Trac (232-20K) auxiliary axle suspension is now compliant in Canada.
The company says it is the only 16.5″x6″ brake that meets the standards for parking brake capacity under CMVSS 121.
The brakes were approved by Link-Radlinski during industry testing for the CTEA’s Generic Air Brake Testing Program.
Ridewell’s 20,000-lb. capacity Flex-Trac (232-20K) is a single-tire, self-steering suspension system built for flexibility.
“Each unit accommodates a wide range of ride heights and frame widths and consistently maintains accurate axle location,” officials said in a release. “The suspension is also considered an ideal alternative for leading king pin suspensions at a lighter weight, and significantly lower cost.”
Flex-Trac (232-20K) is part of Ridewell’s complete line of auxiliary axle suspension systems, and is available in both truck and trailer versions.
