The X-CITE shock is the first upgrade for riders who want improved suspension. Each shock has a damping setting specifically developed for its application, and the spring is selected for the rider’s weight.
The X-CITE shock is equipped with a separation piston to separate damping oil from pressurised nitrogen gas. As the damping piston is moving in oil only, this creates more stable behaviour. For applications where there is no room for a separated gas chamber or when a very smooth initial movement is more important, an emulsion of damping oil and nitrogen gas is used.
The robustness of the preload adjuster facilitates rides in the harshest conditions and supports the highest loads without any issues. The large preload adjustment range of 15 mm is typically double the stock range and a lot more than almost all aftermarket brands. It allows for load compensation and for optimising the balance in the motorcycle. The PA can be finely adjusted with more than 60 clicks.
