A new benchmark in lightweight design
The S.CS MEGA GENIOS curtainsider semi-trailer offers 300 kg extra payload compared to the previous model. The S.CS UNIVERSAL curtainsider semi-trailer – with an unladen weight of below 6 t.

September 2018 – In the 2017 Trailer Test, organised by the specialist journal Kfz Anzeiger, the S.CS MEGA GENIOS left its competitors in its wake. To maintain its position among the leading international trailer manufacturers in future, Schmitz Cargobull immediately started further development work. The results speak for themselves. Thanks to the new rolled chassis, the weight-optimised design is now a whole 300 kg lighter, while the standards of quality and robustness have remained the same. To the delight of freight carriers, the basic equipment package for the S.CS MEGA GENIOS curtainsider has an unladen weight of just 6,290 kg.

Even during last year’s test, the editors heaped praise on the high-volume trailer. Sophisticated technical details, such as the parking positions for the rear door, were very well received, as was the excellent craftsmanship. The easy-to-operate side tarpaulin, which is key to the loading and unloading process, was even described as an “Aha!” moment by the trade journalists. No wonder, as just 4 DaN of force is required to lift the side tarpaulins, particularly in the rear quarter. As a result, working with the S.CS MEGA GENIOS curtainsider could not be easier.

The S.CS UNIVERSAL curtainsider semi-trailer also comes in a leaner version. The Schmitz Cargobull all-rounder is already operational with an unladen weight of a little less than 6 t. Of course, the trailer possesses the DIN EN 12642 Code XL certificate and is also equipped with the new design of side guard.
