The design of the car shock absorber range is derived from motorbike racing technology. As an example; the front suspensions are inverted struts with the lowest possible stick slip behaviour, a design based on decennia experience in motorbike racing front forks.
Tractive distributes the largest range of Adventure shocks and closed cartridges for most extreme applications worldwide. Dedicated tuning markets are also being served, for instance the KTM690, Husqvarna 701 and Honda CB500X.
For the Racing range of snowmobile shock absorbers, Tractive has a very strong cooperation with Totaltek kY in Finland. This cooperation started more than 20 yrs ago and since that time the Totaltek and Tractive engineers have been aiming for the highest levels of snowmobile sport.
Tractive Suspension started 1st of June 2010 after WP Suspension moved from the Netherlands to Austria. The ex-WP core development team used this opportunity to start Tractive Suspension. Immediately the staff realised that the future in suspension is in electronically adjustable suspensions, not in marginally optimizing already fine-tuned suspension.
