SAF-Holland on Wednesday introduced its new CBXA AeroBeam Series of fixed frame suspensions.

The new CBXA Series will phase out the existing CBX line.

The industry's lightest top mount trailer air suspension, the CBXA AeroBeam Series includes 23K, 25K, and 30K pound capacity models for on and on/off-highway tanker, bulk hauler, platform, and specialty trailer applications.

The CBXA AeroBeam series is available with the optional P89 Series air disc brakes. Fleets can save an additional 62 pounds per axle by specifying an optional super-lightweight disc brake wheel-end package, featuring the industry’s lightest weight wheel hub/rotor assembly and the lightweight SAF caliper.

The package's lightweight cast steel trailing arm beam boosts durability, while providing low overall system weight. The Integral shock absorber design improves ride performance, provides undercarriage clearance and protection from road debris.

The pivot connection tension control bolt further improves suspension life by maintaining proper clamping force and eliminating the need to routinely re-torque the connection, preventing bushing and frame brackets from wearing out and avoiding premature tire wear.

The patented SwingAlign system on the CBXA AeroBeam doesn't require disassembly or replacement parts when maintaining axle adjustment and its accurate alignment capabilities enable more precise tire tracking settings, resulting in reduced tire wear. 

It is offered with frame bracket options for weld-on, weld-on with wing, bolt-on, stainless steel weld-on, and tapered top weld-on configurations to meet any trailer chassis design. 

The series includes the P89 Plus with its SAF INTEGRAL rotor/hub and premium sealed bearings with a 7-year warranty, and the P89 with a 5-year warranty. The CBX AeroBeam features a 5.75-inch diameter axle that is 19% more rigid than competitive axles, reducing axle deflection and improving tire life.
