The MORryde family of rubber suspension systems has delivered improved and smoother ride quality for paratransit vehicles for almost 20 years. At the 2018 BusCon in Indianapolis, MORryde debuted its newest suspension system, the RSX. The RSX builds on the smoother ride MORryde has been known for and combines it with powerful handling and improved drivability resulting in maximum comfort for today’s transit properties riders and drivers.

“We have been looking to upgrade our suspension offering on transit buses, but did not want to do anything to compromise the overall ride quality. After significant testing, we found the RSX truly offers the total suspension package delivering both a smoother ride and outstanding drivability,” said Joe Carroll, MORryde R&D Manager.

The RSX combines MORryde’s rubber shear spring technology with a heavy-duty sway bar and finely-tuned shock absorbers. The rubber springs cushion and absorb the impact from rough roads. The shock absorbers work to control the wheel and tire hop while the sway bar helps to reduce body roll and improve cornering. The result is a package that delivers the ultimate in overall ride quality on a transit vehicle.

“We’ve been doing evaluations with different properties, and the results have been outstanding. The RSX is delivering the total ride and drive package on a transit bus”
said Kevin Searer, MORryde Bus Account Manager

The MORryde RSX is now available for specification on new buses or can be retrofitted onto existing vehicles.
