SELF-DEPLOYMENT AND RETRACTION

Built with minimal interactions in mind, TRANSTEX has designed the EDGE Tail to self-deploy and close using GPS technology. Fully automatic, the tail auto-deploys when a vehicle reaches a speed of 40 mph, ensuring the driver is not required to interact with the device. The tail automatically closes when the vehicle speed is reduced to 15 mph. This feature guarantees that there is no damage caused to the tail while backing up in truck stops and while driving in yards and cities. The EDGE Tail features an easy-to-use manual override that allows for cleaning and periodic maintenance.

BUILT WITH WINTER IN MIND

The EDGE Tail was built with winter in mind. All panels fold downward reducing the build up of snow and ice.
