AL-KO, the world leaders in caravan chassis & component technology, has announced the release of AL-KO Enduro™ Cross Country – the latest addition to the AL-KO range of independent trailing arm suspension for Australian caravans.
Following AL-KO’s successful entry into the trailing arm suspension market in September 2015 with the release of an extreme off-road trailing arm suspension, the latest product to be known as “Enduro Cross Country” is a light weight version designed for comfort, control and durability on bitumen and graded dirt roads. It is also suitable for use on corrugated roads for short distances.
“Since releasing our Enduro Suspension for extreme off-road conditions, we have had a fantastic response from both caravan owners and manufacturers who had been waiting for a high quality solution from AL-KO” said Sven Mannfolk – AL-KO Managing Director, Australia & New Zealand. “However, we have also had many calls from the market for a lighter weight option suitable for bitumen and graded dirt road conditions to complete the offering.”
A key feature of the Enduro product range is the integration of premium AL-KO shock absorbers – designed and engineered in Australia and made by AL-KO in Spain. Test results show little to no bush deformation or wear, significantly less dampening degeneration, superior heat dissipation and a failure point 40 degrees higher than that of competitor products tested. Other features include Australian made 4×4 coil springs, maintenance free bushes and integrated tow and camber adjustment. It also features premium AL-KO Off-Road brakes as standard.
Extending the AL-KO philosophy of ‘Quality for Life’ to Enduro Cross County, the AL-KO engineering team conducted an exhaustive testing program at the Anglesea Automotive Research Centre prior to release. Each component of Enduro Cross Country was pushed to the limit before being accepted. The system was also tested to integrate seamlessly with modern caravan features such as AL-KO Electronic Stability Control (ESC), another AL-KO world breakthrough.
Australian designed, manufactured & tested, the product will be available for both single vans up to 2400kg ATM, and tandem vans up to 3,500kg ATM.
AL-KO Enduro Cross Country will be officially launched at the 2016 Victorian Caravan, Camping & Touring Show 24th-29th February, where it will be exhibited on a number of caravans from leading manufacturers.
The AL-KO Enduro range is now available either as standard or as an optional fitment to new caravans.
