The Future of Cab Suspensions

Today truck drivers and fleets are challenging the commercial trucking industry to create a premium driving experience. Link has listened to the call and has developed the ROI Cabmate® cab suspension.

In 1980 Link developed the Cabmate®, the first cab air suspension, that set a new standard in ride comfort. Through continuous improvement and innovation, Link is once again raising the bar by introducing a revolutionary, best-in-class cab suspension: the ROI Cabmate.

ROI Cabmate is a revolutionary cab suspension system that delivers an optimized ride regardless of road conditions. The intelligent system uses electronically controlled shocks to increase ride comfort, improve cab stability, and reduce noise and vibration. The shock absorbers adjust automatically in real time to deliver a driving experience that was not previously possible.

The Link ROI Cabmate is a true game changer and will be the benchmark for quality and ride comfort in the commercial trucking industry.

    Link engineers developed the ROI Cabmate under a directive to provide a premium driving experience. Our proprietary control system uses sensors to monitor road conditions and adjust in real time to create optimal ride comfort by softening and reducing the impacts felt by the driver.

    Our proprietary system is programmed to help keep the driver safely in control of the truck. By reducing vertical travel and body roll, the operator is able to maintain hand positions and a steady line of sight on the road during high speed maneuvering and wind shear.

    Class 8 trucks equipped with the ROI Cabmate will provide a best-in-class cab experience by reducing noise, vibration and harshness. Studies have shown that vibration experienced by drivers can affect concentration, alertness and cause fatigue in short periods of time.

“It is crazy the difference ROI Cabmate has made. Drivers say the truck noticeably rides better and the steering feels reasonably easier. The cab doesn't move in the wind and reacts intuitively to road conditions.” Kevin Tomlinson Director of Maintenance

“The drivers notice the controlled response of the suspension right away. They say the truck feels steady through the turns, stable in wind and balanced during lane departure. They experienced smoother transitions over bumps, reduced swaying in the cab and more control behind the wheel.” Jarit Cornelius Vice President Maintenance & Compliance
