make the best even better

No doubt your Mercedes-Benz G-Class is a terrific blend of performance and luxury.

But what if we could improve it even further?

Nimbus excels in designing and producing premium performance suspensions for G-Class models, serving a global community of enthusiasts.

Why focus on the G-Class?

Because we share your enthusiasm for these remarkable vehicles.

We know the importance of enhancing comfort, efficiency, and safety for your on-road and off-road adventures, and that's exactly what the Nimbus bring to the G-Class!

main BENEFITS OF nimbus OLEO-PNEUMATIC SUSPENSIONS

ENHANCED COMFORT

Air functions as a cushion, delivering extraordinary comfort — like driving on a cloud. With oleo-pneumatic technology, road bumps or gravel become imperceptible as they are effectively absorbed by the air.

IMPROVED GRIP & TRACTION

Nimbus provides exceptional grip and traction by incorporating softer damping during compression-damping transitional phases. This results in efficient filtering and significant dampening of minor road imperfections.

HEIGHTENED SENSITIVITY

Air provides a progressive absorption curve, with heightened sensitivity at the beginning of the stroke (providing a cushion-like effect), and gradually becoming firmer the more you push.

ADJUSTABLE SETTINGS

The air pressure can be adjusted at any point to accommodate a greater load or specific driving requirements/ preferences, all while ensuring optimal comfort and performance remain unaffected.

NO BOTTOMING OUT

Using air improves the curve of absorption. Conventional metal spring shocks have a constant (linear) curve, while oleo-pneumatic shocks are more adaptive. Our progressive curve ends in a straight line, meaning you won’t bottom out

WEIGHT REDUCTION

Air provides a progressive absorption curve, with heightened sensitivity at the beginning of the stroke (providing a cushion-like effect), and gradually becoming firmer the more you push.

what nimbus SUSPENSIONS

do not do!

There is sometimes a bit of confusion between air suspensions and oleo-pneumatic suspensions, and that's natural. Let us explain and clear up this ambiguity.

Oleo-pneumatic suspensions do not allow the car to be raised or lowered at the push of a button, or at least not ours. It is the air suspensions that do that.

Our suspensions are oleo-pneumatic, meaning they use a technology invented over a century ago, which provides superior comfort compared to traditional air suspensions, while also improving overall efficiency, increasing grip, enhancing energy transfer to the ground, and reducing body roll without sacrificing reliability.

If you're looking for all that, but not the ability to raise or lower your car, you're in the right place!

THE LAST SUSPENSION YOU'LL EVER NEED TO BUY FOR mercedes g-class

We measure durability in decades, not years.

Nimbus Suspensions are designed for decades of exceptional comfort, safety, and performance — giving them a lifespan similar to your indestructible Mercedes.

Our secret to longevity blends state-of-the-art oleo-pneumatic technology with the finest materials, meticulously handcrafted by our team of skilled artisans and engineers.

READY FOR ANYTHING

From overlanding and dirt trails to desert racing, highway cruising, mudding, dune bashing, urban jungle driving and more, Nimbus has got your back.

OVERLANDING

off-roading

everyday driving

Overlanding is where Nimbus Suspensions really shine.

Our suspension systems are ideal for overlanding because of their ability to adjust to varying loads as well as the incredibly comfortable ride you'll experience when you're driving dozens of miles on uneven terrain.

Looking for grip and traction? We got you. Oleo-pneumatic suspensions keep you glued to the road for a more stable, comfortable, and safer drive.

They respond delicately to vibrations and minor shocks, and stand strong against the big ones.

For most of us, the G-Class is more than a car, it's a lifestyle. They go where you go, relentlessly, every day.

Nimbus can drastically improve your daily driving experience, making you feel like you're floating on a cloud with your G-Class.

HOW DO OLEO-PNEUMATIC SUSPENSIONS WORK?


Nimbus oleo-pneumatic suspension systems absorb and dissipate shock loads using a combination of hydraulic fluid (oil) and gas (nitrogen) inside the chamber.​

The gas functions as a spring. It is compressed by the oil to absorb the impact of bumps.

The oil is directed through spring-loaded flaps and orifices to allow for different responses from the shock based on your desired driving settings. Increasing or decreasing the pressure adjusts the spring rate.​

The oil, therefore, restricted by the flaps and orifices, acts to dampen the movement of the piston assembly during shock absorption and recoil.

They share their experience

We asked those who experienced the Nimbus to give us their opinions and to share with all of you what they felt after a few miles. All the reviews below are based on usage with a Defender - models 90, 110, and 130 - in overlanding, off-roading, or daily use in urban jungle. You can expect the same reviews for the Mercedes G-Class.

“Kudos to the team!

You've fixed the only complaint I had about my Defender!”

Fabien Azema

defender 130 - europe

“Driving the Defender after installing the Nimbus has been a revelation.

It's as if my old off-roader has transformed into a high-end SUV. It's smooth, stable, and much quieter—it was really worth it.

Thank you to the Nimbus team for this incredible upgrade!”

frederic labarthe

defender 90 - europe

“I have to say the drive quality is so much better! It drives like a brand new car with modern suspension and without the judders and wobbles that used to characterize the old ride!

Many thanks for your outstanding customer service. I really appreciate. Do let me know if you invent anything else and I will be sure to buy!”

john woods

defender 110 - asia

“Honestly, it was pretty crazy. I really, really felt the difference. Already on the road, clearly, you don't feel like you're driving. Even on the quite sporty track we took, I found the sensation crazy, the cushioning you feel even though there are lots of rocks and it's moving in all directions.

I was really able to see the difference, it was awesome.”

Olivia a.k.a @LePtitReporter

defender 110 - europe & Africa

“I still find it hard to believe, but the most comfortable car I've ever tried in my life is now a Land Rover Defender.

I understand what you mean when you talk about the 'Flying Carpet' effect; that's exactly it.”

eric calmels

defender 130 - europe

“Honestly, I was a bit skeptical at first. I figured it would be better, of course, but I never imagined it could be to this extent.

After just a few hundred meters with the Nimbus, you understand immediately. The difference with the 130 is night and day. No more judders or vibrations, and consequently, less noise. Superb!”

patrice borg

defender 130 - europe

“When I finally had the opportunity to test drive the Nimbus-equipped 130, my immediate reaction was, 'Wow! I never knew a Defender could be this smooth!'

The ride was incredibly comfortable, to the point that it transformed my driving experience. Thank you to the team at Nimbus. I think I felt in love with the Defender a second time!”

raphaël bravi

defender 130 - europe

“Installation carried out last Thursday, I can confirm it's a real treat. No more apprehension about taking the Defender for a long journey. I no longer recognize my vehicle, which has become so comfortable.

Moreover, Killian and his colleague are very nice, keen to keep their commitment and to serve the customer as well as possible. It's nice to see people who are eager. Keep it up, the future is ahead of you.”
