Lets swap out our old spring coil suspension and test out this new hydraulic shocks!
Which to Choose?
1100 lbs for rider weight 75kg and below;
1500 lbs for rider weight 75kg and above;
1600 lbs for rear shock
Check out our hydraulic spring tests below:
Here is a closer side by side comparison of Spring suspension vs hydraulic shock suspension. Both are DNM shocks but see the difference between a spring suspension and a hydraulic shock below.
The air shock behaves similarly to hydraulic shocks with more damping but slower rebound.
Hydraulic/air shocks have lower resonance peak over bumps giving the rider less body stress. When resonance is high and stays high like on the spring suspension, the body absorbs that and over a period of time, the body will feel the stress.
In the video above, you observe the spring suspension rebounds very abruptly, this creates high resonance and stress on the rider (blue curve). Our goal with hydraulic shocks is to lower the damping coefficient to try to get it as close to the red curve as possible.
REAR SHOCK Measurement as follows.
Eyelet diameter (B1&B2): 6 mm, 8 mm
Eyelet Width (C1&C2): 22-50mm
DNM DV 22 / DV 22 AR (Adjustable Rebound for rear)
1100 lbs / 1500 lbs / 1800 lbs rear
135mm (eye to eye) / 165mm (for rear)
Oil Damping with floating piston
T6 forged AL6061 spring stopper, top eyelet and body.
