The Universal Group, LLC


Flexiride® Product Line

The Universal Group, LLC manufactures and markets the Flexiride® rubber torsion axle, the most state of the art concept in axle technology for light duty trailers. The Flexiride® cartridge rubber torsion system is a completely bonded suspension, the only one of its kind in the market today. Widely used on horse trailers, boat trailers, motorcycle trailers and utility trailers, Flexiride® offers superior ride and damping performance over conventional leaf spring suspensions.

The Universal Group, LLC supplies these components to Licensees in the United States and Canada. These certified axle manufacturers stock Flexiride® components and build axles to required track width, frame width and starting angle. The normal 22 degree starting angle maximizes the Flexiride® performance advantage, however, other starting angles are possible for special applications. This build-to-suit system eliminates the need for large inventories of different axle components and reduces lead times considerably.

The Flexiride® cartridges can be manufactured as half axles which are perfect for special applications where full beam axles cannot be used.
