Prevost patented Beam and Integral Structure
Prevost ingenuity and commitment to optimize its slide-out design led to the development of a unique patented feature: the Prevost Beam. Not only did we achieve the installation of a slide-out, but we did it without sacrificing luggage space or structural rigidity – proof of our superior capabilities in design and R&D. The integrated chassis and the Prevost Beam construction provide a holistic structure that is remarkably strong and durable. Not only does this innovative design contribute to the passive safety qualities of the motorcoach, but the inherent torsional rigidity enables levels of handling precision and vehicle responsiveness that enhance active safety as well.
The Prevost Electronic Stability Program (ESP)
Automatically connects the driver’s intentions with actual vehicle movement hundreds of times per second. ESP continuously monitors wheel speed, steering angle, lateral acceleration, and yaw, and can apply each wheel’s brakes instantaneously to help maintain vehicle control and reduce the risk of rollover when needed. This innovative safety advance also helps improve stability in the event of evasive maneuvers, sudden lane changes, or obstacle avoidance.
Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and Auxiliary Braking System
The ABS Braking System is sized and calibrated to provide the safest, shortest stopping distance across a wide range of road and weather conditions regardless of the coach’s speed. The Volvo Engine Brake or the Allison® transmission retarder allow our customers to choose the auxiliary braking system best adapted to their preferences.
