Presenting the only fully-integrated Type A.

The AE Series goes far beyond where any Type A has gone before. It’s the first-ever Type A to be fully integrated, that means you get one, and only one, manufacturer who is absolutely accountable for all aspects of its proprietary design. Plus, it doesn’t just go the distance, it’s designed to have a longer life cycle than similar products in the industry.

Its integrated design is fully backed by an extensive, experienced and unparalleled dealer network.
