The Road Force Touch, which provides complete wheel and tire diagnostics with unmatched speed, was selected for the coveted award by an elite jury of automotive experts. Automechanika’s jury judged new products based on the technology’s overall innovation, functionality, aftermarket relevance, safety and contribution to environmental protection.

The balancer performs a simulated road test using Hunter’s patented load roller to find hidden vibration problems and offers match-mounting instructions to minimize forces. The Road Force Touch also features a new, intuitive touchscreen interface and patented eCal true auto-calibration.

Held in Frankfurt, Germany, Automechanika is the world’s largest and most global automotive service show. Nearly 5,000 exhibitors from 79 countries attended the show, presenting more than 13,000 new products. Hunter was the only award winner from the United States.
