CURT (45949): Rebellion™ XD Cushion Hitch

The new Rebellion™ XD adjustable cushion hitch ball mount from CURT is specially designed to reduce jerking, rattling, vibration, and strain at the coupling point—providing a smoother ride for passengers while minimizing the physical toll on the vehicle’s brake and suspension systems.

The 45949 Rebellion™ XD hitch achieves these breakthroughs by way of CURT’s patented ShockDrop™ technology. This adaptive, cushioned towing system leverages an integrated, flexible polyurethane isolator to suppress the jarring physical forces generating during hauling and to improve road control. No more of the airbags, bearings, or frequent maintenance associated with other products.

Rebellion™ XD is the first offering in CURT’s line of revolutionary new ShockDrop™ solutions, with more on the way!
