Trelleborg’s outboard circular TPE boot offers a reliable, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly way to protect vehicles and enhance performance by sealing lubricants in and keeping dirt and other contaminants out.
between -40° and 140°C
0 to 50° angle
Lighter part, less grease inside
No squeak noise between convolutes
Outboard boots - Ultimate joint protection
Trelleborg outboard boots provide protection against contaminants while keeping grease inside, reducing friction and improving fuel consumption. Because CV joints need to transmit torque from the gearbox to the wheel, outboard boots are built to undergo significant stress due to high-steering angles, rotation, and exposure to the elements.
A perfect seal
The exceptional fit and tear-resistance of Trelleborg outboard boots creates a perfect seal that keeps mud, gravel, and other road contaminants from entering the area and causing wear and damage.
Trelleborg outboard boots are highly flexible, so that they can withstand the dynamic movements, acute angles of up to 50 degrees, and rotation created by tight turns and high speeds on the road.
Trelleborg outboard boots ensure a quiet ride thanks to a convolute shape that resists contact pressure at acute angles that can create a squeaking noise. A special waxed material further minimizes any noise.
High angle outboard boots
Modern car designs involve many challenges for boots. As wheel bases become larger and drive chain layouts more diversified, it increases the need for a smaller turning radius, and steeper turning angle on wheels.
