OptiRide™

The global market leading solution in air suspension

WABCO's award-winning ECAS technology, the global industry's best-selling solution for electronic control of air suspension, delivers fuel savings of up to 3 percent under certain conditions, while providing optimal ride performance.

Unlike steel-spring suspension, WABCO's OptiRide enables lifting and lowering of the vehicle, resulting in more efficient cargo handling and operating time savings. It provides automatic load transfer to mitigate axle overload, which helps to reduce vehicle wear-and-tear and other operational costs. With appropriate axle configuration, OptiRide's function for automatic load transfer improves vehicle traction and eases steering.

In addition, OptiRide offers an optional function for axle load monitoring that automatically warns the driver in case of overload, which can further lower total cost of vehicle ownership.
