Reyco Granning Launchs New ComfortMaster Line

Reyco Granning

Reyco Granning recently introduced the ComfortMaster line of independent front suspensions (IFS). The first two platform variants will be based on 17,000-pound GAWR and 20,000-pound GAWR systems available for shipment Nov. 26.

Additional capacities are in development and new configurations will follow.

ComfortMaster is the company’s latest generation IFS and will be the direct replacement for the IFS17S3, IFS18S3, and IFS20S3 product families. After a brief overlap period, these existing transit bus and motorhome IFS products will be phased out to make way for production of the new ComfortMaster series.

The system comes as a complete module without any loose parts. It includes sub-frame/cradle, power steering gear, steering linkage, and all components to make it a unitized bolt-in system.

ComfortMaster has a nitrogen-charged and sealed McPherson-style strut architecture. The nitrogen strut integrates the functions of: spring, shock absorber, king-pin, and upper control arm into one component making the unique construction light weight and efficient.

“The tidy packaging of the strut affords the highest possible wheel-cut angle allowed by today’s tire manufacturers; at a true 60-degrees vehicle maneuverability is simply unprecedented” said John Stuart, president of Reyco.

Reyco Granning completed subjective and instrumented performance evaluation comparing the ComfortMaster to both legacy Reyco Granning products and the leading competitor product.  The on-vehicle evaluation demonstrated that the vertical acceleration was improved by 32 percent.

“With some iterative tuning we were able to achieve the Holy Grail, improving handling without compromising ride,” said Raoul Steenekamp, VP of engineering.

“Reyco Granning has motored past its largest global rivals to develop the future of IFS,” said Arnie Dunai, VP of sales and marketing. “This advanced technology takes comfort, performance, and safety to another level for our customers and yours.”
