Air springs for the aftermarket

ContiTech Air Spring Systems offers more than 2,000 lines worldwide, thereby covering almost all air spring lines for trailers, trucks and buses. Three standalone brands are available to tailor the product range perfectly to the diverse needs of the markets.

The ContiTech premium brand demonstrates the company's expertise as a recognized development partner and original equipment manufacturer. Since these air springs are developed as original equipment, the ContiTech brand is guaranteed to meet the highest quality requirements that fulfill the specifications of vehicle manufacturers in aftermarket business, too.

The PHOENIX quality brand is perfectly tailored to the independent aftermarket, due to 50 years of experience in the development of original equipment for renowned vehicle manufacturers. PHOENIX offers high product quality and a high degree of flexibility when it comes to expanding the product range to niches.

The product portfolio is rounded off by the PRIME-RIDE® product brand. This is the cost-effective brand suitable not only for older vehicles. It offers a product range for main commercial vehicle applications.


The weight of a truck, and thus the axle load, fluctuates greatly depending on the payload at any given moment. To meet the resulting suspension requirements, virtually all commercial vehicle manufacturers now employ air springs. In providing for level control, air springs also guarantee that the vehicle body maintains a constant road clearance. This, in turn, ensures safe driving regardless of the loading conditions. The vehicle body can also be raised or lowered by means of air springs actuated via optional auxiliary manual controls. This is of advantage in adjusting vehicle body height to the level of a ramp or in placing an interchangeable platform.


Air suspension on trailers ensures not only gentler treatment of the load being hauled but also less wear and tear on the roads. This aspect is of growing importance as traffic volume becomes increasing dense. As a rule, each axle has two air springs. In multi-axle combinations, one axle is frequently provided with an axle-lifting device to protect the tires on empty runs or when the vehicle is only partially loaded. Usually convoluted air springs are used for raising and lowering lift axles.

Cab & seat

Air suspension of the cab has a major impact on riding comfort. These air springs are sleeve-type rolling lobes and are arranged in a four-point suspension between the driver’s cab and the chassis frame.

Air spring seats provide a more ergonomic and comfortable working situation. This helps to ward off driver fatigue or health impairment.
