Trail air suspension is still considered a luxury for ordinary people. It is generally only installed on cars that cost between fifty and one hundred thousand, which ordinary people do not usually come into contact with. However, don't forget that a few years ago, it only appeared on million-dollar luxury cars, and it is not impossible to install it on ordinary family cars in the future. Today, let's talk about the things related to trail air suspension.
Structure of trail air suspension
The front and rear suspensions are composed of components such as airbags, height valves, double-tube hydraulic shock absorbers, transverse stabilizer bars, and cushion blocks.
Advantages: the suspension system adopts a trail air suspension system, which is light in weight, improves the overall carrying capacity of the vehicle, provides excellent smoothness, stability and more effectively protects the cargo. The transverse stabilizer bar ensures high stability and overturning resistance. High-strength, high-quality parts extend the service life of the entire vehicle, improve the performance of the vehicle, reduce maintenance costs, reduce the impact on the road surface, and prolong the life of the road.
The difference between trail air suspension and general suspension
First, the suspension of an ordinary car generally consists of a spring and a shock absorber. It is an important component that connects the body and the wheels, and its main function is to improve riding comfort and handling stability. The trail air suspension replaces the spring with an air spring and adds an electronic control system and an air pump.
Everyone can understand the trail air suspension as the tire on the car. When pressed, it compresses, and when released, it extends. Because it is air transmitted, it has a larger compression stroke and better comfort than a normal suspension. And it also has some high-end functions: adjusting the height of the body. When the car is traveling at high speed, the body drops to the lowest point, which can lower the center of gravity and obtain better stability. In addition, when parking, the body drops to the lowest point, making it easy to get in and out of the car. When the car needs to navigate uneven and poor road conditions, the body rises to improve the passability.
Of course, the functions of trail air suspension are far more than these. For example, on models such as the Mercedes S-Class and Audi A8 that are equipped with trail air suspension, it can be adjusted predictively in advance. The front of the car is equipped with a stereoscopic camera, which can scan the road conditions in advance. If there are potholes ahead, the computer will know, and utility trailer air suspension, tandem axle air suspension and semi trailer air suspension can adjust the softness, hardness, and height in advance based on this information, so that passing through the potholes is as comfortable as passing through flat ground. When a turn is approaching, the trail air suspension will adjust to be more rigid in advance to obtain the best support force.
In addition, trail air suspension can provide different styles of tuning through different driving modes in the car. The suspension becomes harder in sport mode and softer in comfort mode. In summary, this kind of suspension that uses air to change the softness and hardness is more comfortable than a spring suspension in terms of comfort.
