The standard RidePro solenoids are our exclusive bubbletight airvalves that we recommend for probably 80% of our customers.
The BigRed solenoids use the same bubbletight design, the same weatherpak wiring connectors, have the same laser etched port markings… but they will flow MUCH more air.
In addition, BigRed can be taken apart and placed at each corner of the vehicle to speed the response up even more. BigRed is popular among the truck customers who intend to raise and lower the vehicle quickly…
The standard RidePro solenoid is appropriate for our customers who want a more controlled action from their air suspension. There is NO difference in quality… just in applications.
Why wouldn’t I just get the BigRed system instead of the RidePro® solenoids?
Not everyone wants the super fast action of BigRed. BigRed is more expensive because a larger coil is required to operate the larger plunger and orifice for more airflow. Also, the fast action of the BigRed solenoids can sometimes be hard to control. It can sometimes be difficult to sneak up on your intended air pressure and obtain a good ride quality because the massive airflow will "overshoot" your target air pressure.
