Suntour: Newest Suspension Systems
Suntour Suspension Systems
A suspension fork with an automated lock-out system, an extended rear shock range (in travel as well as in price-levels) and last but not least, also a completely re-designed suspension seatpost; this is the news of SR Suntour.
RS9 Epicon LOD (see picture) is Suntour’s new rear shock with lighter weight and great price performance ratio. The rear shock comes in 4 different lengths (165mm (38mm travel), 190mm (50mm travel), 200mm (50mm travel) and 200mm (55mm travel). The weight is around 260 grams.
The SF9 Axon Werx ELD (XC/Marathon fork) is the type name of Suntour’s new cross country fork. This one comes with Suntour’s innovative Electric-Lock-Out system. The electric system is equipped with a special shock sensor to turn off the lockout to save energy if the rider forgets to unlock the fork when putting the bike in the car or the garage.
Durolux is Suntour’s new Freeride and Enduro Series. The fork is available with 180-140 or 160-120mm travel (all with remote travel adjust). VVC (Variable Valve Control) avoids huge nose diving and teetering while sprinting or braking action to have a better control of the bike in all situations.
