SSD Modification and HSB Adjustment System
Redesigned valving system with our speed sensitive
and Converts the Lever to HSB compression threshold adjustment System
The current valving system of the Monarch's produce a threshold style damping system. At slower shaft speeds 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 pedal much better and its more about how well the shock can absorb small bumps and handle the rough and rocky high speed hits.
We change the valving system to transition smoother into the low and midspeed valving circuit, by allowing the shims to open gradually and setting up the mid and highspeed valving based on the leverage of the frame.
The SSD/HSB conversion takes a different approach to the shock adjustment.
Descend/Pedal SSD/HSB low speed Threshold option
Pedal only/Firmer SSD/HSB low speed Threshold option
The HSB also provides for a smooth transition of low
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, if the air can is leaking, it should
also be noted that air side will not be modified in anyway and any air
side issues will not be addressed.

Air can and air sleeve
After 50 hrs of riding the air can seals and
air sleeve piston seals need replacing and if not replaced periodically
We may suggest you replace the stock seals when we inspect
your internals or
Shocks newer than 50 hours need only be cleaned and reassembled typically.
