New: semi air suspension for the Volkswagen Crafter and MAN TGE

Placed on 10/10/2017

At the beginning of May, we proudly presented our new full air suspension solution for the Volkswagen Crafter and MAN TGE. We're now adding the VB-SemiAir auxiliary air suspension system, which is currently available for front wheel drive versions FWD 3,0T – 4,0T. Kits for the other drive versions are currently in development.

The ideal solution for Volkswagen Crafters or MAN TGEs that regularly carry heavy loads
As the Volkswagen Crafter and MAN TGE have usually been converted for various applications, the dead weight and load will vary. For this reason, the vehicles are often heavily laden and sag at the rear, which makes them less stable and results in uncomfortable driving characteristics. Our auxiliary air suspension systems allow you to adjust the suspension manually or automatically. As the auxiliary air suspension systems support the existing suspension, more spring travel is created while driving. The semi air suspension therefore helps to improve ride comfort when travelling in your vehicle.

Other advantages of the VB-SemiAir system:

  • Option to vary the spring force
  • Relatively inexpensive
  • 'Plug-and-play' system allows for quick installation
  • The body, equipment and load remain protected against damage
  • Heavy loads are no longer noticeable from the outside
  • Less strain on the shock absorbers


The auxiliary air suspension system is available in three different versions:

VB-SemiAir basic kit
The VB-SemiAir basic system is made up of two air springs, fasteners and two inflation valves. You pressurise the VB-SemiAir basic system yourself using an external air supply, such as a tyre inflator.

VB-SemiAir comfort kit
The VB-SemiAir comfort system consists of a VB-SemiAir basic system including control panel with two pressure gauges, two high/low switches and a powerful, heavy duty compressor. You use the switches to raise and lower the ride height of the vehicle, and the air springs will be inflated to the ideal pressure. The pressure gauges give an accurate reading of the pressure (in bar) in the air springs.

VB-LevelAir
VB-LevelAir is a VB-SemiAir basic system with automatic level control. As such, it provides for greater ease of use when you are on your travels: the driver does not need to worry about operating the system. VB-LevelAir ensures the vehicle is at the correct ride height and that the system is at the right pressure.
