The compression adjuster is a high/low speed Ultra Adjuster for the optimum in tunability. The shock is charged with a nitrogen bladder and has adequate oil and N2 volume so you will not experience shock fade during a run.
The shock features hard coat anodized aluminum CNC machined 33mm inside diameter body and a 12.5 mm diameter hard chrome steel shock shaft. The shock shaft is guided by low friction teflon coated bushings and a 7mm wide teflon piston ring keeping stiction to a minimum - while maintaining the necessary stiffness for the most demanding riders.
The seals are high quality double wiper-type with a separate dust seal. This means you won't have to replace seals and bushings every week to get ready for the race. The shock has a heavy duty bumper anti-bottoming system to provide a soft cushion at the end of travel for those really big hits!
The shock eyes are provided with full complement Timken® needle bearings and dust seals for long life and reduced friction.
