Pivoted bogie with ball bearing turntable and ADN steering system = automatic
delayed steering operation (delayed steering)

ADN: By change of running direction the pole operates in the normal way according to the steering of the reins. The pivoted bogie and front axle, however, are actuated with a given delay action. Thus the steering always describes a larger radius than rigid pivoted-bogies and allows you to drive around the obstacles on the racing line by being kind to your horses.

Steering dumper continuously adjustable by small hand wheel with display. By closing the star-shaped hand wheel the front axle becomes stiff in the steering radius. Thus
on uneven ground the lateral oscillation of the pole is limited.
