Gabriel designs, engineers and manufactures shock absorbers for both the South African and international markets.
Gabriel’s state of the art manufacturing facility (based in Retreat, Cape Town) houses its own product development, engineering and manufacturing divisions whereby products is designed and manufactured to the highest quality standards and distributed throughout the African continent.
All genuine Gabriel products are comprehensively tested by a team of qualified engineers and Gabriel’s comprehensive range of shock absorbers are specifically designed and engineered to suit local South African conditions.
Our years of research and testing have resulted in Gabriel developing shock absorbers that are firm enough to prevent the wheels from leaving the road surface, but also flexible enough to ensure that the occupants are not directly subjected to the vehicle’s forces.
Gabriel shock absorbers limit the bounce of the wheels by controlling the rate at which the suspension springs compress and extend. In doing so, the shock absorbers help maintain traction and control of the body, as well as the pitch and roll of the car during cornering, braking and acceleration. With more accurate control and steering,
