What’s the difference between automatically adjusting suspension systems and those that require manual adjustment?
Our AirPad® Suspension system not only adjusts itself automatically: It also boasts integrated shock absorption – which sets it apart from a simple leaf spring. This is why trailers with leaf springs tend to bounce around more.
A suspension system that adjusts itself is also a lot more practical for you: From our decades of experience, we know that many users adjust their manual suspension system only once, right after they set up their bicycle trailer, and then usually forget about adjusting it later when riding under different conditions. For example, children are always growing – sometimes faster, sometimes slower – but with manual suspension, you would need to adjust the system regularly to ensure an optimal riding experience; this applies even more so to cargo trailers, which will most likely be carrying different loads every time they are used. Without the proper adjustment, the suspension system cannot be used to its full potential and, in the worst case, could even make it less safe to use the trailer.
We strive to offer you and your young passengers the highest level of comfort and safety – which is why we have decided to equip our bicycle trailers with a suspension system that comes with integrated shock absorption and adjusts itself automatically. This means that you can simply hitch up your trailer and hit the road, without having to worry about regularly adjusting the suspension!
