SmartTruck TopKit Aero System
The smart alternative to side skirts for greater fuel efficiency with undercarriage access and visibility.
The SmartTruck TopKit Aero System, proud to be an HDT Top 20 Product, is an innovative approach to aerodynamically improving fuel mileage without attaching obstructive components like skirts to the underside of the trailer. With the SmartTruck TopKit, there is no risk of damage from loading docks or intermodal operations and cost is comparable to side skirts.
Benefit from a
5.5% improvement in fuel mileage on a typical 53′ trailer
during normal, long haul highway operations.
Available for both dry vans and reefers with swing or rollup doors, as well as straight trucks, the TopKit Fairing drag-reduction solution is EPA SmartWay® Verified and C.A.R.B. compliant.

LeadEdge Top Fairing
The LeadEdge Top Fairing is designed to help manage the disruptive drag created in the gap at the front top edge of the trailer. Molded from Thermoformed TPO (Thermoplastic Polyolefin), our LeadEdge Top Fairing provides additional drag reduction and fuel savings both in combination with our SmartTruck Classic system, and as a stand alone fairing.
