SKI-DOO RIDER SOARS TO VICTORY WITH KYB SHOCK ABSORBERS20.02.2006
Best known for its shock absorbers for cars and front forks for motorbikes, KYB also supplies more unusual vehicles, including the Ski-Doo MX Zx snowmobile.
The high level of performance offered by KYB shocks was demonstrated recently, when snowmobile rider Blair Morgan rode a Ski-Doo fitted with KYB shocks to win a record fifth SnoCross Gold Medal, at the 2006 Winter X-Games in Colorado, USA.
Riders soar more than 30 feet in the air during this punishing event - the world’s biggest snowmobile race - and KYB shocks performed faultlessly even under such extreme conditions and minus degree temperatures.
Hajime Sato, Managing Director of KYB Europe, said: “The same world class engineering behind our shock absorbers for standard road going vehicles is also used by those who want to take to the snow, race circuit or even go off-road!”
