The SPIER Athlet S
| New & Light
According to the motto 'Nothing easier than that', SPIER has created a box body that heralds a new generation of the well-proven SPIER Athlet box bodies. A box body was developed for the special needs in the transporter class and in city logistics, which is built sustainably and is flexible and light at the same time.
More than 50.000-times proven
| The SPIER Athlet
The SPIER Athlet stands for vehicles with plywood construction. In contrast to lightweight construction, the material plywood is used - a multi-layer wood panel coated with glass fiber reinforced plastic. The plywood construction is stable construction and is used in vehicles from 7.0 to 26 t In the case of SPIER SPIER Athlet box bodies with more than 12.0 t, even all models are made of plywood manufactured.
| The SPIER Athlet Plus
The SPIER Athlet Plus stands for vehicles with a lightweight construction. In contrast to the plywood construction, the body walls are made of GRP-coated lightweight walls with a hard foam insulating core. The lightweight construction comes into play with SPIER Athlet box bodies up to 12.0 t Use and enables payload advantages compared to the plywood construction.
Competence for temperature-controlled transport:
| The SPIER Athlet Thermo
The SPIER Athlet Thermo bodies for refrigerated vehicles are the excellent solution for transporting temperature-dependent goods. A high payload with a large transport volume is combined with excellent insulating properties (ATP) and hygiene properties (HACCP).
Aerodynamically, efficiently and sustainably built
| SPIER aeroform Construction as Standard
High cost-effectiveness is guaranteed with every SPIER Athlet box body thanks to the aerodynamic, fuel-saving SPIER aeroform construction - including low susceptibility to repairs and minimal maintenance effort.
Certified, tested and safe.
| Better Safe than Sorry
SPIER is certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001 and DIN EN ISO 14001. SPIER Athlet box bodies are in accordance with VDI 2700; EN 12195 part 1 and EN 12642 tested and certified.
A TÜV or Dekra certificate proving stability, safety and body quality is available on request for every SPIER Athlet box body. With static pressure tests, dynamic tests and driving tests as well as temperature and insulation value tests, we give our customers additional extra security. Many safety features (e.g. rear view cameras, turning assistants, numerous entry and exit aids, collision protection, underride protection, mirror extensions, additional lighting or retro-reflective elements) and load securing perfectly adapted to your goods make your SPIER body safer - so that driver and load arrive safely at their destination at all times.
Individual production, small series production & production in large quantities
| Smallest Quantity: ONE
Industrial production techniques and the use of modern adhesive technology allow the production of individual, attractively priced individual pieces and at the same time enable attractively priced series production in large quantities with economies of scale.
Athlet box bodies are enormously versatile: you can flexibly adapt every SPIER Athlet box body to your needs. At the same time, you can be sure that we can also produce large quantities with consistent quality.
Designed for a long service life

The SPIER Athlet has been tried and tested 50,000 times.
The history of the SPIER Athlet family is more than 25 years of success. The first ideas for the case structure were collected in 1994: high payload, sophisticated aerodynamics and low dead weight are just some of the factors that started this groundbreaking development. The SPIER Athlet was one of the first box bodies in the industry to be manufactured in a line at several assembly stations and glued instead of riveted. The resulting appearance of the smooth superstructure walls has been retained to this day. Today, the SPIER Athlet brand with the distinctive hallmark of the rounded aeroform profiles with 80 mm radii and the aeroform SPIER Athlet lettering is an integral part of the street scene. Over 50,000 units have been built in the past 25 years.
Continuous development and adaptation to your needs
The possible uses have been expanded to many different areas over the past few years: Other lightweight designs have been developed (e.g. the SPIER Athlet plus) and the SPIER Athlet Thermo for holistic temperature-controlled Transport introduced to the market. In 2020 the starting signal was given for the SPIER Athlet S - a brand new Athlet body concept for the transporter class. All of these Athlet concepts combine a high payload with large transport volume.
The SPIER Athlet is as diverse as its end customers and sectors that drive it: Regardless of whether it is in terms of tonnage, rear ends, colors, special sector solutions, equipment or the possible chassis makes, on which it can be built.
Be won over by this tried-and-tested construction concept and adapt your SPIER Athlet perfectly to your industry and your needs.
