Ridewell achieves Canadian brake certification approval

Ridewell announced Tuesday, Aug. 5, that its Flex-Trac 232-20K auxiliary axle suspension has the only 16.5-by-6-inch brake approved by the Canadian Transportation Equipment Association for parking brake capacity under CMVSS 121. The brakes were approved by Link-Radlinski during industry testing for CTEA’s generic air brake testing program, according to the company.

The 20,000-lb. capacity Flex-Trac (232-20K) is a single-tire self-steering suspension system designed for flexibility. Each unit is designed to accommodate a wide range of ride heights and frame widths, and consistently maintain accurate axle location. Ridewell says the suspension, available in both truck and trailer versions, is a suitable alternative for leading kingpin suspensions at a lighter weight and lower cost.

Ridewell, based in Springfield, Mo., engineers and manufactures suspension systems for the truck, trailer and bus industries. For more information, go to www.ridewellcorp.com.
