Infusing nitrogen gas enhances quicker shock absorber response times, greater vehicle control and ride comfort
The extra large big bore working cylinder will reduce the stress on the working components of the shock absorber thereby increasing the durability of the shock.
The high temperature oil infused with Nitrogen gas allows the shock to effectively operate at higher temperatures (180ºC) as encountered in severe off-road and loading conditions. Normal oil operates effectively at 120 ºC.
Infusing nitrogen gas enhances quicker shock absorber response times, greater vehicle control and ride comfort.
The new polyurethane / rubber mounting bushes considerably reduce wear and tear.
The Teflon insert between the rod guide and the rod significantly reduces the friction between the rod and the rod guide.
The new hydraulic stop lock cushions any metal to metal contact inside the shock under full extension.
The new cast iron piston ring is much more durable in high operating temperatures than the alternative Teflon type rings.
The full 360º reinforce welded mounts adds significant strength to the mounting points of the shock absorber.
One piece solid machined eye-rings are much stronger and aesthetically more appealing than the normal alternative curled eye rings
