Anatomy of an Aeon® Rubber Spring – Part 3
An Aeon® rubber spring comes in many shapes and sizes: some round, some rectangular, and some wedge-shaped.
Round Aeon® springs come single, double and triple convoluted.
Characteristics of an Aeon® rubber spring
Aeon® Rubber Springs have unique features such as:
- Variable Spring Rate
- Self-Damping Properties
- Vibration Isolation
- Zero Maintenance
- Simple Application
As the image above suggests, we’re going to talk about round, double-convoluted, hollow rubber springs.
Double Convoluted rubber spring
Double-convoluted Aeon® springs offer the widest selection of ride quality and load capacity.
In fact, the self-damping properties of any Aeon® spring are most noticeable with the double-convoluted Aeon® springs.
Because of their longer deflection curve, fabricators specify double-convoluted springs. That’s because double convoluted springs deliver the perfect balance of ride quality, load capacity and roll stability.
Furthermore, the longer deflection curve of the double-convoluted rubber spring demonstrates why they deliver an equal blend of stability and comfort.
In other words, a longer deflection curve results in a less aggressive response to the load. (see below)
In conclusion, double-convoluted Aeon® springs are used in most of the Timbren SES rear-axle kits to maximize ride quality and roll stability.
