Hino has selected Hendrickson's Comfort Air rear air-ride suspension for its new conventional medium-duty truck. Tailored specifically to the Hino vehicle, this single-axle suspension is suitable for straight truck applications.

Comfort Air mounting brackets for Hino match common frame hole locations with their mechanical suspension allowing relatively easy conversion to air ride.

Employing advanced spring technology, Comfort Air's main support member uses an elongated design for optimized roll stiffness and to shift more of the vertical load to the air springs for a softer ride.

Based on Hendrickson's HAS suspension and axle connection technology, Comfort Air features Quik-Align for easy, quick realignment and a pivot bushing connection for maximum durability and quiet operation.

A stamped steel cross channel enhances lateral support in the suspension system while outboard mounted shock absorbers maximize stability.
