FlowBelow Aero Inc. announced its locking aerodynamic wheel cover will become standard on all Freightliner Cascadia trucks Jan. 1. Freightliner is a brand of Daimler Trucks North America.
The truck maker started offering FlowBelow’s patented quick-release aerodynamic wheel covers on the Cascadia in 2016, according to Austin, Texas-based Aperia. In 2020, Aperia released an updated version with a locking feature.
“The demand for aerodynamic wheel covers on regional and on-highway trucks has been very strong, with a high number of customers requesting this technology from the factory,” Toby Halter, who is involved in platform product strategy at DTNA, said in a release. “The partnership with FlowBelow and the opportunity to make their product standard on the Cascadia allows us to continue to deliver trucks with superior fuel efficiency.” — Transport Topics
