Kenworth and FlowBelow Team Up To Offer FlowBelow Tractor AeroKit As Aerodynamic Option For T680
LAS VEGAS, Nev., October 1, 2016 - Kenworth and FlowBelow™ partnered to develop the FlowBelow Tractor AeroKit™ as a Kenworth T680 option.
Consisting of an AeroKit fairing fitted on each side of the truck between the Kenworth T680’s tandem axles, along with a fairing directly behind the rear drive axle, the fairings are constructed of a durable, yet flexible thermoplastic polyolefin (TPO) for long life. The system also uses stylish, quick-release aerodynamic wheel covers designed to reduce turbulence within the wheel itself.
“The tandem axle fairing and wheel cover combination enhance the T680’s superior aerodynamics by keeping airflow moving even more efficiently around the end of the tractor and onto the trailer, especially when the trailer is outfitted with its own side fairings, and reduces drag and turbulence around the tractor’s rear wheels,” said Kevin Baney, Kenworth chief engineer. “This option offers our T680 customers an additional option to help optimize fuel economy.”
