The Bigfoot CTI System

Bigfoot Central Tyre Inflation System gives operators the ability to adjust tyre pressures from the cab to suit the speed and weight of the vehicle.

1. The Display

Bigfoots in-cab Display allows the driver to select tyre-pressure modes to match current conditions, displaying current tyre pressures, selected modes and system status. The Display offers GPS based speed sensing to monitor speed and pressure. If a vehicle speed increases higher than intended for the selected tyre pressure, the system will warn the operator and automatically inflate the tyres to correct pressure for the new speed if ignored.

2. The ‘Optitraction’ System

The system processes driver commands, monitors all signals throughout the system and tells the system to constantly monitor tyre pressures. The ECU sends commands to the pneumatic valves and display, giving the operator real-time information.

3. The Wheel Gear

Delivering the air to the wheels while in motion for all makes and models of trucks the kit comprises of hoses, manifolds, rotating unions, which connects tyre valves to the trucks air system.

4. The Support

Every system comes with full factory backup, including technical support and access to a full inventory of spares and parts. Whether you’re across town or across the globe, Bigfoot's got your back.
