Torsion-Flex Benefits

The BOSS Torsion-Flex is the innovative fusion of the MEGA-DUTY drop hitch and TORSION-FLEX technology. 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. The GEN-Y Weight Distribution Torsion-Flex Drop Hitch is compatible with almost any existing weight distribution head assembly. 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 quality of life and holds value, ensuring that everyone (family, friends, and livestock) arrives alive.

  1. Carl

    Awesome products

  2. carlos villagomez

    this hitch is AWESOME!!!!…..huge difference in ride. air bags and torsion hitch is the only to go if you have a big trailer…wish i would have gotten this years ago when i first seen it. thanks again Gen-Y your hitch rocks and the bumpers stickers are pretty awesome too

  3. Rob Hoffman

    Allows us to use our existing WD hitch set-up and the ride is far better than before. Highly recommended!!

  4. Jerry

    Super product! This thing is a BEAST! Immediately noticed a much smoother ride. Easy transfer of my Weight Distribution hitch head with no adjustments needed. I was considering a competitive product which uses an airbag but much more $$$$. Outstanding customer support/knowledge coupled with a superior product led me to purchase the Gen-Y BOSS (Torsion-Flex). Only regret….. I did not make the purchase sooner. Performs as advertised. Well done.

    This hitch is beefy beyond all beef. I don’t think there is another beefier hitch out there on the market than this hitch.
    If some people think that the price is beyond reasonable, you better think about what is the value of what you are towing. If you’re not towing anything like a racecar trailer than you’re probably not towing anything of value or important to you, than this hitch may not be what you need. However, Gen-Y does have other hitches for the light and inexpensive stuff.

  6. Christian Braithwaite (verified owner)

    I’ve rarely been as satisfied with a purchase in my entire life. This hitch is incredibly stout, and works mind-blowingly well.

    I was totally surprised just how effective the torsion-flex system was at isolating the truck/trailer movement. I felt very little of the trailer movement – even on big bumps.

    I can’t recommend this product enough – best hitch I’ve ever owned hands down.

  7. Tony (verified owner)

    OMG I want to tow my trailer just so I can flex my new hitch on people who don’t have one!

    • Ashley Griffee

      That’s great, Tony! We love seeing our customers excited about our products!

  8. Keith (verified owner)

    For the person like me that feels the hitch is too expensive. It is worth every penny and you will tell the difference within 5 miles. I will never own another hitch.

    • Ashley Griffee

      Keith, thank you for this honest feedback! We appreciate you taking the time to leave this positive review!
