Bike Racks

If you fit a cycle rack and bikes you run the risk of reducing your car’s grip on the road because the rear suspension might be compressed. The steering will be more sensitive and your braking distance may also be increased. Having your car loaded too heavily at the rear will reduce the grip your front wheels have and all of these reductions in performance reduces the safety of your car on the road.



Is your suspension as sporty as you are?

Are you a true cycling fanatic? Then you will want to make sure your bike is safe at all times, especially when loaded on your car. If your car’s suspension is not built for heavy loads installing helper springs will help keep your bike safe and get you to your destination.


This is how helper springs work

Using bike racks on the rear of a car can put your rear suspension under a lot of pressure. This problem can be solved by installing MAD helper springs.

A helper spring is an extra spring that you can place next to or in the springs of your car. The helper springs from MAD help the existing suspension to bear the total weight. Your car sinks less and the driving comfort improves considerably.

Not only can the car handle heavier loads, but you can also easily transport trailers. Speed bumps and country roads are no longer a problem. This way you always reach your destination safely.

Helper Springs are Affordable
Helper springs are relatively inexpensive compared to other heavy load solutions and can be fitted in no time at all.







How MAD air helper springs work

Air helper spring kits, also known as semi-air conversions, air assisters and air bags.

There are two basic types of air bags. RED that sit inside the OE coil spring and BLACK that sit between the axle and chassis rail. Red air bags are usually fitted to cars or vans and pickups on coil springs and can come with an on-board compressor mounted in the boot area, you can use your own or make use of one at a fuel station.  Black bags are fitted to vans and pickups with leaf springs and can be supplied as:
