As if the Freightliner Cascadia wasn’t efficient enough, now the fuel-efficient truck sports new “quick-release” wheel covers. These innovative wheel covers are the invention of a company called FlowBelow Aero Inc. Daimler Trucks North America has struck a deal with FlowBelow to offer these wheel covers as an option for all their Freightliner Cascadia trucks starting at the beginning of the first quarter.
About FlowBelow Wheel Covers
The carefully-designed wheel covers from FlowBelow work by streamlining airflow over the drive wheels, which reduces aerodynamic turbulence and drag. They also provide tool-free access to the wheel end by using a patented “push and turn” quick-release latching system. These special wheel covers are made in the USA out of thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO), a flexible and durable material that is commonly used for automotive applications. The wheel covers will then be provided to all Daimler truck plants for use in manufacturing the Freightliner Cascadia. Aftermarket purchase and installation of the wheel covers will also be available for all Freightliner dealers throughout North America.
Leading in Innovation
FlowBelow is working in tandem with Daimler to create some of the most efficient trucks on the market. Josh Butler, founder and CEO of Texas-based FlowBelow Aero, said in a statement, “Daimler Trucks North America continues to lead the industry with the most technologically advanced, fuel efficient trucks available. With the option to include the FlowBelow Quick-Release Wheel Covers to the Cascadia Evolution truck, we are providing increased value while also laying the groundwork for further aerodynamic enhancements.”
