Firestone Airide, a subsidiary of Bridgestone Americas (Bridgestone), unveiled the Firestone Air Command dual-path control for air helper springs. Air Command allows users to control air helper springs wirelessly from either a physical remote or smartphone app for iOS and Android and is designed to help make towing and hauling easier, safer, and more comfortable.
“With remote and app-based wireless dual-path controls, and robust product offering, Airide will change the way people think about towing and hauling,” said Justin Monaghan, president, Firestone Airide. “We are excited for heavy-load towers and haulers… to test out Air Command for themselves.”
The Air Command, which allows users to control air helper springs from a Bluetooth-based smartphone app or wireless remote, provides live system monitoring and adjust-on-the-fly capabilities, including single- and dual-path controls. When properly optioned with dual-path control, Air Command can inflate left- and right-hand air helper springs individually, helping to level out uneven loads and increasing steering control, leveling headlights and adding to trailer braking efficiency.
Air Command is designed to complement air helper springs for most ½-, ¾- and 1-ton trucks, SUVs, vans, and Class A RVs.
In addition to the new dual-path Air Command remote controls, customers also have access to single-path remote and app controls. Easy, no-drill installation is available at any of the 700+ authorized Airide installers in North America.
