Torsion-Flex Benefits

The BOSS Torsion-Flex is the innovative fusion of the MEGA-DUTY drop hitch and TORSION-FLEX technology. The BOSS can apply to customers anywhere from construction contractors and municipality fleets, to anyone that needs to hook up to multiple trailers. In addition to being heavy-duty, fully adjustable, and versatile, the BOSS also contains rubber torsion arms. Therefore, only 10% of the trailer inertia transfers compared to 100%  when using a hard connection hitch. The 90% smoother ride allows you to glide instead of bounce, therefore increasing gas mileage. Since the tow vehicle and trailer track independently, customers gain greater control and safety through the reduction in sway and trailer bounce. Customers also secure greatly increased braking control because all of the weight on the tow vehicle and trailer is distributed evenly. Bumps, potholes, curves, hills, and even other drivers can be a hazard, and the BOSS keeps you under control when confronted with these conditions. Additionally, this product reduces metal fatigue caused by traditional towing that takes a toll on the trailer and its contents. Consequently, the BOSS increases the quality of life and holds value, ensuring that everyone (family, friends, and livestock) arrives alive.

  3. Dan

    I tow a lot and just added the torsion 16k hitch to my operation. Amazing difference when bumper pulling.

  4. Dan

    16k torsion unit. Much smoother ride. Highly recommended!

  5. Brad (verified owner)

    This hitch has made towing our travel trailer so much easier and the ride is obviously better.

  6. Matt Worthley

    The quality of the hitch is very good. It does pull very nice down the road. However it’s huge. And with a ll the braces and weight it’s not really something you want to remove after every use. I call with the entinaion if getting a class 5 drop hitch and was somehow talked into buying this from the sales team. Returning is to expensive so I’m stuck with it. Great hitch just way overkill for me.

  7. Joseph (verified owner)

    My hitch is only a six weeks old and has over 3,000 miles on it. I love it and was impressed with the difference in the ride. It also increased my fuel mileage by 1.5 miles to the gallon pulling the same trailer loaded the same way to the same race.

    • Ashley Griffee

      Thank you for your positive feedback, Joseph! We’re so glad to hear that you’re feeling and seeing the benefits that come from towing with our 16K BOSS!

  8. Kaleb R Spicer

    Like I said on FB, works as advertised! Worth every penny! I can actually see my trailer move independently of my truck as the torsion arms do their job absorbing shock. Noticeably smoother ride in my Tundra.

    • Ashley Styers

      Kaleb, we love hearing about the benefits our customers experience when using one of our TORSION-FLEX units! Thank you for your honest review!

  9. Mark Vignjevic

    50k miles through winters and still works great

    • Ashley Styers

      That’s amazing, Mark! We’re glad our BOSS is handling all your heavy-duty towing needs!
