VB Airsuspension


Placed on 18/07/2018

It is our great pleasure to announce an addition to our product range in the form of a full air suspension system (VB-FullAir) and an auxiliary air suspension system (VB-SemiAir) for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and a reinforced replacement spring (VB-CoilSpring) for the Mercedes-Benz Vito and V-Class.

VB-CoilSpring for the Mercedes-Benz Vito and V-Class
Looking for a solution for vehicles that are always heavily laden, such as service vehicles? Our reinforced replacement spring, the VB-CoilSpring, has what you are looking for! This reinforced suspension, designed for the Mercedes-Benz Vito or V-Class, returns the vehicle to the original (or a higher) ride height, thereby increasing spring travel and improving stability.

VB-FullAir and VB-SemiAir for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
In our previous newsletter we wrote that some time ago we had made a start on the development of various air suspension systems for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. The latest Sprinter models are currently on show at dealerships, and our full air suspension and semi air suspension are available to order now for the following models:

  • VB-FullAir 2C for RWD 3.5T (rear wheel drive)
  • VB-FullAir 2C for RWD 5.0T (twin wheel, rear wheel drive)
  • VB-SemiAir basic kit for RWD 3.5T (rear wheel drive)*
  • VB-SemiAir basic kit for RWD 5.0T (twin wheel, rear wheel drive)*

* A universal compressor kit is also available with the VB-SemiAir basic kit. The control panel specific to the Sprinter is still in development.

What is the difference between full air suspension and semi air suspension?
Full air suspension is a fully automatic (adjustable) solution for suspension problems. The conventional suspension system is completely replaced by a full air suspension system that filters out unevenness in the road surface, thereby increasing ride comfort. Our full air suspension also reduces crosswind sensitivity, helping to make your vehicle safer.

The name 'semi air suspension' says it all: this type of suspension supports the existing suspension on the vehicle. Semi air suspension is often used on vehicles that regularly carry heavy loads. An air spring is fitted between the chassis and the rear axle, which raises the ride height of the vehicle and generates greater spring travel. The semi air suspension therefore helps to increase the level of comfort and stability when travelling in your vehicle.
