TORSUS Announces Partnership With JRZ Suspension Engineering to Supply the World’s Most Versatile Off-Road 4×4 Minibus


TORSUS, the renowned manufacturer of ultra-tough, heavy-duty off-road buses, has unveiled game-changing partnerships with JRZ Suspension Engineering BV, global leaders in off-road suspension and dampers, and distributor TSS International BV.

Together, TORSUS, TSS and JRZ have engineered a custom heavy-duty off-road suspension configuration that delivers unparalleled performance over any terrain, setting a new standard for adventure seekers worldwide and providing the freedom of mobility for all, no matter how challenging the ground they need to cross.

Headquartered in the Netherlands, JRZ Suspension Engineering boasts nearly three decades of experience in crafting cutting-edge suspension systems to perform at the pinnacle of top-tier motorsports, enhance the ride and handling characteristics of elite sports cars, and enable off-road buggies, heavy-duty vehicles, and armoured cars to master the most unforgiving terrain with impunity.

The company’s ultra-advanced suspension upgrade takes the already highly impressive TERRASTORM – a 4×4 all-terrain minibus – to new heights of rough terrain crossing performance, ensuring a more comfortable and safer journey and providing greater freedom of movement for all occupants.

Controlling the unsprung mass is the chief engineering objective. The total weight of every component unsupported by the vehicle’s suspension: wheels, tyres, springs, shocks, linkages, brakes, and even lug nuts. Controlling the unsprung mass significantly lessens the suspension system’s workload, enhancing its ability to dampen bumps and keep the tyres on the ground, providing superior traction.

The TERRASTORM’s remarkable on- and off-road handling transformation is made possible by the innovative JRZ Suspension Engineering setup. Precision CNC machined components, increased fluid displacement, high flow-rate valves, and nitrogen-charged shock absorbers work harmoniously to eliminate wheel hop, provide exceptional handling across all terrain types, boost traction, and elevate comfort levels. Furthermore, this advanced suspension system stabilises body roll, solidifying the TERRASTORM as the ultimate choice for an all-terrain Workstation or Ambulance.

Whether the customer desires a softer, more comfortable ride or superior control under braking, accelerating, and turning, the TERRASTORM’s heavy-duty off-road suspension reacts swiftly to the driver’s inputs, automatically adjusting damping speed for optimal performance.

Vakhtang Dzhukashvili, the Founder and CEO of TORSUS, expressed his excitement about the collaboration, stating: “We are thrilled to partner with JRZ Suspension Engineering, as our shared objective is to create the ultimate all-terrain vehicles. Combining our expertise and cutting-edge technology, we have crafted the world’s most versatile off-road 4X4 minibus.” 

Like TORSUS, JRZ Suspension Engineering takes great pride in utilising the highest quality components. The suspension setup incorporates precision-machined parts, ensuring precise and controlled movements and extended service intervals of 25,000 km.

Certified by TUV Germany and tested for durability on an extensive dyno cycle of over 800,000 cycles, the TERRASTORM’s front strut can withstand side loads of more than 5000 Newtons, guaranteeing exceptional performance, reliability and long service intervals, precisely the characteristics required for operating successfully in exceptionally challenging terrain.

Prepare for a new era of off-road exploration as TORSUS and JRZ Suspension Engineering revolutionise how you conquer the great outdoors. Get ready to experience unmatched versatility and excitement with the TERRASTORM, the ultimate companion for off-road adventures.

Erik Ras, Partner at JRZ Suspension Engineering, said: “The collaboration between JRZ and Torsus brings two companies with the same mindset together to design the best possible solution. That’s probably why the development phase went so smoothly since we have the same goal. The TORSUS TERRASTORM is built and developed to the highest standards, like how we develop and manufacture our suspension.”
