The X-TREME shocks are equipped with a Position Dependent Damping System (PDSII) which resists bottoming.
At the end of the compression stroke, a second damping piston enters a cup and creates an additional damping level. It effectively is a cushion that absorbs high compression energy and prevents hard bottoming of the shock absorber. The bottoming impacts on the motorbike chassis are minimised leading to less stress on other components and increased comfort and safety.
This shock absorber uses a damping shim stack specifically developed for its application. Not only leads this to stable performance but also to a longer lifetime of the shock and its oil. To create the best performance for every model we use high flow pistons, low friction seals, and dedicated shimstacks. Every shock can be opened and serviced, or tuned for the customer’s application. For all shocks there is a range of springs from softer than standard till harder.
