Weight Distribution Hitch

  • Immediate and continuous friction sway prevention
  • Single pivot point eliminates noise and wear points
  • Preset head angle works for every setup
  • Setup is all done on the driver’s side.
  • Load the bars by pumping the handle until desired weight is transferred to the front axle.
  • Pressure gauge to ensure a repeatable setup 
  • Unload the bars by simply twisting the needle valve knob.
  • Composite bars are lighter-weight and 5x more flexible than steel, but with similar strength.
  • Our tapered composite spring bars made with LITEFLEX® technology by Hendrickson cover 600 - 1,600 lb tongue weight.

Weight Distribution, Reinvented.

Frequently Asked Questions

With bumper towed trailers, it creates a problem if there is too much of the weight on the rear axle of the tow vehicle.   Weight distribution hitches move weight to the front axles to help with steering and braking.   While traditional WD hitches are either ‘loaded’ or ‘unloaded’, the Continuum uses a pump to allow you to fine tune the amount of weight you are moving to better control your towing experience.

Weight distribution ‘rules of thumb’:

The need for a WDH is usually mentioned in the tow vehicle owner’s manual. For instance, some trucks require weight distribution for any trailer over 5,000 lb.

If your trailer’s weight (GTW) is more than 50% of your tow vehicle’s weight (GVW)
If your tow vehicle sags when you hook the trailer to it
If you find it difficult to steer or stop

In most cases, our hitch can be installed in 30 minutes or less, using only a 9/16” wrench.   The head angle of the hitch is pre-set, and the bar assembly is pre-assembled.   Steps to install the hitch include: Leveling the trailer, setting the height of the hitch ball, mounting the pump and cylinder to the trailer frame, and pinning the cylinder to the spring bar assembly.

Because our bars are made of composite, not steel, we are able to cover 600-1600 lb tongue weights with the same bars.   We partnered with Hendrickson, the world leader in suspension systems for heavy duty trucks.  Their LITEFLEX composite bars are five times more flexible than steel with the same strength (and much lighter!)  You can trust them to hold up, too, since they are corrosion resistant.  

Not really.  Some systems have steel bars that need to be ‘loaded’ on each side of the trailer with a tool.  Our system is loaded from the driver’s side by pumping a handle and watching weight move to the front axles.


With other hitches, any change in your trailer or tongue weight might require a hitch head adjustment.   Large adjustments might require different bars, minor adjustments might mean adding or subtracting washers or other adjustment in the head.   Our head angle is set, our bars are rated from 600-1600 lb tongue weights, and our adjustments are small and allow precise control.   If your trailer isn’t handling the way you like, pull over and pump the handle again to add weight to the front axles, easy as that.

That is where this hitch really shines!  It’s important to make the proper weight adjustment when your load changes, but other hitches make it difficult to do that.   With our hitch, a couple more pumps of the handle will transfer more weight to the front axles, without changing out bars or complicated adjustment to the head.
