CURT Pioneers Cushion Hitch Technology with Innovative Rebellion™ XD

SOURCE: CURT Press Release

Eau Claire, WI (August 9, 2019) - CURT, supplier of a complete line of towing products and the leading manufacturer of USA-made custom-fit trailer hitches, has an innovative solution to a smooth, more comfortable towing experience: the Rebellion™ XD.

The Rebellion™ XD #45949 is an adjustable cushion hitch ball mount – a receiver hitch mount designed to reduce jerking, jarring, rattling, vibration and strain at the coupling point. This provides a smoother ride for the driver and passengers, while minimizing the toll on the vehicle, its brakes and suspension system.

Rebellion™ XD takes an entirely new approach to cushion hitch technology, aimed at simplicity of design and low-maintenance. It uses patented ShockDrop™ technology. With a highly tested polyurethane isolator and only a few heavy-duty components, ShockDrop™ provides a noticeable difference in your towing experience. The simple design removes the hassle of an airbag, bearings and the frequent maintenance required by other cushion hitch options. It also makes the Rebellion™ XD lighter-weight than competitor models.

Rebellion™ XD comes as the flagship product in a newly launched line of ShockDrop™ solutions. CURT is scheduled to release a retrofit trailer ball with ShockDrop™ later this year – the RockerBall™ -- and more heavy-duty ShockDrop™ solutions are in the works.
