SmartTruck Products Overview
A new direction in class 8 vehicle aerodynamics
Of all vehicles on our highways, class 8 long haul trucks would benefit most from low drag designs. As a result, these trucks should have the lowest drag of all vehicles on the road – Right? Not today. Instead these vehicles have among the highest drag of all vehicles.
Well not for long. SmartTruck’s release of our first phase of aerodynamic upgrades for class 8 tractors and trailers is just the first step to make the class 8 long haul truck the best aerodynamic performer on the road.
SmartTruck Phase I products are available with new equipment or as a retrofit to your existing equipment.
