In the case of deflation front tire, vehicle control is guaranteed by the other wheel on the side.
Disc brakes front of us, although a smaller single area, ensure a greater braking surface, this means less overheating and higher brake effort
Low risk of aquaplaning, because the two front wheels, which remove water to the people behind them, ensure better roadholding
Leisure is a consequence of the reaction force is more evenly distributed in this supension: reaction in the case of the pot is split between four-hole front wheel and shaking the chassis is limited.
Reducing unsprung weight in the wheels grip. improved directional stability: changes in angle due to slack in the steering mechanism (in stuctures like silentblocks) is compensated by a second set of wheels.
Two additional springs and dampers that provide a better handling vehicle.
