Bose Corp. has announced the opening of its first five Bose Ride system installation sites across the country, allowing the system to be purchased by individual owner-operators and small fleets. First introduced in January, the Bose Ride system replaces a conventional air-ride truck seat with a Bose suspension base and an integrated custom-designed seat top to provide over-the-road truckers added protection from road-induced shocks and vibration.

The authorized Bose Ride installation centers are located in Dallas, Detroit, Phoenix, Southborough, Mass., and Crossville, Tenn. “Over-the-road drivers spend up to 11 hours a day in their trucks, withstanding a ride much worse than that of a passenger car,” says Mike Rosen, chief engineer and general manager of Bose Ride. “In our trials, drivers told us that this punishing ride dramatically impacts them – both in the truck and at home. We’re excited to offer the Bose Ride system to professional drivers who want to improve their quality of life.”
