Multistage valve compression enables the shock to adjust to driving conditions automatically. Under gentle road conditions, the valving allows maximum ride comfort. As conditions get rougher, the valving makes the shock response firmer to maintain tire contact and vehicle control.
2. Sintered iron pistons and guide rods
Sintered metal provides for greater strength than traditional metals, extending shock life and durability.
3. Extra large floating piston and monotube design
Extra-large 46mm bore and piston for the most demanding conditions. Monotube design and floating piston keep oil and nitrogen gas completely separate, eliminating shock fade.
4. Micro-smooth, hardened /chromed 5/8" piston rods
KYB has the smoothest hardened/chromed rods in the business for extra-long life and reliability. MonoMax Shocks feature 5/8" piston rods (most cases) for extra strength.
5. Seamless cylinders and eye rings
Most shock cylinders & eye rings are made from flat metal and welded at the seam. KYB cylinders and eye rings are extruded as seamless cylinders, eliminating weak points created by welded seams.
6. Viton® oil seal with self-sealing packing
KYB monotube shocks use Viton oil seals and self-sealing packing to keep the oil in and contaminants out.
