SSD Modification Adjustment System
Modified compression adjustment system
with our transition speed sensitive shim stack(SSD)
These mods maintain the lockout system with custom high speed tune
The current adjustment system of the DHX uses a bleed port style
low speed bleed damping system. The choice of 1 full turn. The bleed
check valving is set-up for pedaling and requires a large force to overcome
this threshold. This is because the shims are preloaded against the
piston face and require larger hits or higher shaft speeds to open the
shims to allow flow, this creates a platform feel that works great for
pedaling but today's frames are much better at resisting pedaling. We
think shocks should be set up for the higher speed downhill terrain
because its more about how well the shock can absorb small bumps and
handle the rough and rocky high speed hits than how well it was design
to resist pedaling.
Mid and high speed rebound is controlled by a custom
valved shim stack to match the riders weight
Includes custom revalve and setup for rider, frame
leverage and conditions
Also includes complete rebuild service, oil, nitrogen charge and typical wear parts* included in price.
New lower friction, higher temperature shaft seal and
**The shock must be in good working condition with no scratches or dents on moving parts
Shock must be sent in to receive modifications.
