Striving To Say Yes!- The Torsion Flex “Skimmer” Story

21K Torsion Suspension Hitch (6" Drop) with Versa-Ball and Pintle Lock

Over the last 7 years we have been a company, we have come up with several new ideas that have come stemmed from conversations that we have had with customers (and potential customers). The main general theme has always been this though, “can I use XYZ Hitch for ABC application?”. While many times the answer for this has been yes, occasionally the answer is no, and this sends us to the design table to start figuring out a way to come up with a product that will per a yes for that application. Case in point?The “skimmer” GEN-Y 10K Torsion Flex Hitch. 

When we first introduced the torsion flex line, EVERYONE wanted to get one. From smaller quarter ton pick up trucks to the big  F350 people. The issue? Our original torsion flex hitch was meant to do it’s best work at a higher tow weight. The folks that were calling us wanted it for 5000 lbs to towing, and this hitch was not just overkill for that weight, it actually made the towing less efficient. I cannot tell you how many hundreds of people that we told “no” over the phone over the years in regards to this question. So, what did we do? We built a 10K version of the torsion flex hitch so that those folks could #GetHITCHed with a #GenuineGenY too! Not only did they want the function of the torsion flex hitch though, they wanted the “look” as well, and with the creation of “the Skimmer” they had both!

So if you have an application question, and we give you a no, don’t worry, we are probably looking at ways to make it a yes in the very near future! At GEN-Y Hitch, making out customers smile it why we come to work each and every day!

3 Reasons Your Light Duty Truck Needs Our 10K Torsion Hitch, “The Skimmer”

Our proprietary torsion hitch has been a big seller in the medium and heavy-duty truck markets, but we haven’t had an option for light-duty truck owners…until now! In 1st Quarter 2018, we will be releasing a 10K GEN-Y Torsion Hitch for light-duty trucks, a hitch we have named the “Skimmer”, and we think you are not just going to want it…we think it will change the face of how light-duty truck owners view towing! Here are 3 reasons why!
1. Towing wear you down, and it WILL wear your vehicle down…our torsion hitch will help! 
It is a fact that if you tow, your vehicle will take a beating, but with our torsion system, that no longer has to be the case! Up to 90% of the inertia between truck and trailer is mitigated, and that means you no longer have to feel the brunt of that force…and neither do your passengers…or cargo!
2. It works AND looks AMAZING
All GEN-Y hitches have a certain “look” to them that people have come to love. This smaller version of our torsion hitch will have the same look, AND the same amazing rugged toughness that makes people stop and take notice! Also, all of our torsion hitches come equipped with a tongue weight scale, helping you ensure that your trailer load is distributed evenly giving you peace of mind along with a great towing experience!
3. Your tires and wallet will thank you!
It just can’t be said enough…towing can be rough on your body and your cargo!  A GEN-Y Hitch is meant to take the brunt of this force off of you and your cargo/truck/passengers, and in the process take wear off your ties and give you better gas mileage.
So get excited! Our light-duty torsion is coming the 1st quarter of next year, and towing for light-duty truck owners will NEVER be the same! We will let you know as soon as the Skimmer is available for you to purchase!
