The SportShock4 is a damper reserved for high level competition
It is a tri-tube low pressure gas volume compensator damper, even easier to adjust than the SportShock3. The rebound settings (high and low speed) do not influence the compression settings (high and low speed)
So there is less trade-off in the settings, which account 26 clicks.
Another advantage of the tri-tube system at low gas pressure is to keep the stability during the temperature variation unlike emulsion models and high pressure canister damper type.
Moreover, the oil we use in our products has a viscosity SAE 0W (4.4 mm²/s at 100°F), which allows our dampers have equal and constant operation regardless of the temperature.
The springs will be chosen on a case by case basis.
This option allows to settle the length of the shock absorber. With this additional regulation, you have the possibility of changing the height of the machine, without affecting the regulation of the spring, to influencing on the geometry of the machine and so managing the handiness, the stability and the ground clearance. Two flat wrenches are enough for changing the height of the machine.
This option replaces the traditional method of spring setting by a hydraulic system. A thumb setting wheel taken up on the frame, or in certain cases directly on the shock absorber, the control the prestressed of the spring. This way of setting is very useful on a motorcycle of tourism to pass of a state of load in an other one as well as in competition to save time of development during the tries and in race during pitstops.
