CURT, a supplier of towing products and a manufacturer of custom-fit trailer hitches, announced the introduction of the Rebellion XD.

According to a press release, The Rebellion XD is an adjustable cushion hitch ball mount featuring a receiver hitch mount designed to reduce jerking, jarring, rattling, vibration and strain at the coupling point.

The Rebellion XD provides a smoother ride for the driver and passengers, while minimizing the toll on the vehicle, its brakes and suspension system, the release stated.

Rebellion XD is aimed at simplicity of design and low-maintenance, utilizing a patented ShockDrop technology. The design removes the hassle of an airbag, bearings and the frequent maintenance required by other cushion hitch options. It also makes the Rebellion XD lightweight.

Rebellion XD stands 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 also in the works.
