FlowBelow announced that fleets will now be able to spec its AeroKit tractor-trailer aerodynamic system as a factory- or dealer-installed option on international LT and RH tractors.
During a press conference at the American Trucking Associations' Technology & Maintenance Council annual meeting March 17, Gordon Virginski, vice president of OEM and dealer programs for FlowBelow, said the new spec will be available this spring.
“The new International LT has proven to be one of the most technologically advanced, fuel-efficient trucks available, Virginski said. “With the addition of the FlowBelow products on LT and RH Series trucks, we are providing fleets with even higher fuel efficiency while reducing total cost of ownership.”
Last October, Virginski noted, International announced it would offer FlowBelow aerodynamic wheel covers as part of its new MPG Package for the LT Series truck. This package includes chassis skirts, a roof fairing, cab extenders and an optional bumper valance. A new, more refined version of this aerodynamic spec package, available this spring, will include all of the previously offered aerodynamic components, in addition to the AeroKit system.
The FlowBelow products included in the MPG Fuel Efficiency Package will be warranted by International Truck as well as made available for aftermarket purchase through all International Truck dealers in the U.S. and Canada.
