146851282452786.jpgPLYMOUTH, Michigan – Cequent Performance Products has introduced the new heavy duty Steadi-Flex Sway Control with Weight Distribution.

This new system is the latest in the Reese line, offering features and benefits from its tapered spring bars and stylish cast components, to the automotive-style friction material setting this system apart from the rest.

“The design and functionality of the Steadi-Flex are features we have been working on for some time now,” Cequent Senior Product Manager Tom Stalder says. “It’s important to us to provide top-quality products. After all, it’s what Reese is known for.”

The heavy duty Steadi-Flex system has wide spring bars and a simple pin and clip assembly to reduce wear in the head and on the friction pads. The no-drill installation is a breeze, allowing towers to be on the road quicker than before.

“We are very excited to release the new Steadi-Flex line into the marketplace because it’s not just something people want when they tow, it’s something they need,” Cequent Vice President of Sales and Marketing John Walsh says. “Sway is nothing to joke about. When your family’s safety is on the line, Reese is the name you trust. It’s that simple.”

Steadi-Flex is available in 1,000/10,000, 1,200/12,000, and 1,400/14,000 pounds tongue weight/gross trailer weight and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
