Our Story

innovation beyond sound 

Bose is best known for sound, but our research goes beyond sound. It’s true that we are a company built on scientific research, but our mission is simple: to create better products that people love. Our Bose Ride team is applying what we’ve learned from our research in the sound space to solve the challenges of road-induced vibration for professional drivers. The Bose Ride system, developed for the heavy-duty trucking industry, offers an unprecedented level of protection from road-induced shocks and vibration.


Our Passion

Innovation and Changing the future of Mobility

Here at Bose, we dream big. We have a passion for creating better products. Our innovative Bose Ride team is passionately at work designing and developing the Bose Ride system.

The Bose Ride system started as an idea to improve automotive suspension systems.

1980 – Our founder, Dr. Bose, a car enthusiast researches how to make the ideal suspension system.

1985 – The team builds hardware based upon Bose-proprietary technology applied from our speakers and noise cancelling headsets.

1991 – The first prototype suspension was built into a Lexus.

1993 – Bose explores ride quality challenges in heavy trucks. An engineer takes a ride around Boston to learn just how rough the ride can be. 

2010 – The initial launch of the Bose Ride® system I.

Today, we proudly serve the trucking industry with the goal of making the road better for professional drivers and commercial vehicle drivers who may experience the negative health effects of whole body vibration. As we move toward the future, we continue to challenge the conventional to change the world with better products and to change the future of mobility for everyone.
