KIC President John Schneider said, “KIC’s engineers developed ROLLiant™ in response to industry demand for a more affordable hub system that was easy to install and maintain, and could last the life of both trucks and trailers. Its patent-pending technology maintains tight wheel-bearing tolerances for safe, reliable performance and enables us to offer industry-leading warranties for truck and trailer applications.”
Unique Design Delivers Long-Life PerformanceProper wheel bearing adjustment is critical to achieving safe, reliable performance that enables long-life truck and trailer operation. A deviation in adjustment – even the width of a human hair – can mean the difference between safe, reliable hub system performance and premature tire wear, wheel seal failure and premature bearing failure. The ROLLiant™ system’s patent-pending extended bearing cone technology improves on existing precision bearing systems to keep wheel bearings in tight, consistent alignment year after year. ROLLiant™ works with both straight-spindle and tapered-spindle hub designs and does not need specialized spindle nuts or extra parts. Each ROLLiant™ hub is assembled with 100% endplay inspection and serialization for complete traceability and optimal bearing life. This and its unique design features enable ROLLiant™ to deliver safe, consistent, low-maintenance hub performance for the life of the vehicle.
The ROLLiant™ System Includes:• Precision-machined hub with fill port for easy lubrication.
• Pre-installed ROLLiant™ extended bearing cones
• Bearing cups installed
• Factory-installed seal
• Spindle nut system
• Hubcap and gasket
• Patent-pending packaging maintains Accuride’s stringent hub cleanliness standards.
Industry-Leading WarrantyROLLiant’s innovative design features and integrated components enable Accuride to offer as standard an industry-leading 10-year warranty for trailer applications and a 7-year warranty for trucks.
Ordering ROLLiant™ROLLiant™ is specifically designed for ease of installation during truck and trailer assembly and provides dependable, long-life, low-maintenance service for fleets. Customers may contact their Accuride sales representative for ordering details.
