We drew inspiration from the racing world and created a new gearbox with features that no one has ever seen in the truck industry – the I-Shift Dual Clutch. With the dual clutch you will experience power shifting with no interruption in torque and power delivery. And still without jeopardising fuel consumption. When your transport assignments demand high performance and frequent gear changing, I-Shift Dual Clutch will bring you unrivalled driving comfort.

I-Shift Dual Clutch front

How it works. 

The two dry clutches are located at the front of the gearbox. In normal operation, one clutch is idling while the other is engaged. The clutches and gear shifting are controlled by a pneumatic system, similar to the well-known I-Shift.

Basically, the dual-clutch transmission can pre-select the next gear while driving in the
current gear. When the gear is changed, the currently engaged clutch is released at the same time as the previously idling clutch is being engaged. This means that the gear shifting is made with no interruption in power delivery.

With two input shafts and the gearwheels and selecting elements ingeniously arranged, two gears can be selected at the same time.
