This top of the line shock absorber uses a damping shim stack specifically developed for its application. The aluminum shock absorber housing creates maximum thermal stability by optimal heat removal. 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. We use heavy duty components like microfinished induction hardened quenched&tempered 42CrMo 16mm piston rods, best quality bearings and stainless steel bushings. 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. Every shock absorber has a QR code that leads to an internetpage with all factory settings and advised settings.
This Xcite shock is the choice for replacing your shock with a high end aftermarket product. It is especially suitable for when you do not need to change your damping in between tracks or when you are not looking for the optimum in damping control. This shock has a large damping adjustment range. Using the rebound adjuster, the damping can be adjusted with approximately 18 clicks. Every clicker adjustment brings a noticeable change in damping level. The rebound adjuster affects rebound damping and compression damping in a natural balance. The spring preload can additionally be adapted by using the supplied Tractive Tool.
This shock has a mixture of nitrogen and oil inside. It has less internal friction than a shock with seperation pistons, but also has a damping that is relatively less stable. These characteristics make this shock a very good and “value for money” option when driving on tarmac roads.
