The Ultimaax rear suspension comprises a heavy-duty beam with central pivot and combination of shear springs and progressive springs, which are the main load carrying components and are made of special proprietary rubber material.

The suspension can carry a greater portion of the load and its stiffness increases as the load increases without causing an abrupt change in ride characteristics and therefore providing a right balance between empty ride quality and loaded stability.

The suspension also uses rubber bushes in Front and Rear, which eliminates the need of periodic lubrication, thereby ensuring total peace of mind and no need for a regular visit to the workshop or using expensive chassis greasing system.
