Sport shock absorbers are good all-round suspension units with a strengthened spring and a larger damping cartridge. They offer a clear improvement to the suspension at a reasonable price. On certain Sport shock absorbers, the spring preload can be optimally set to current requirements rapidly and in different levels. Some of these shock absorbers do not have TÜV certification, however.
The CARBONE shock absorbers are made in Italy and convince thanks to their exceptionally high quality. The spring preload of the Sport CARBONE can be adjusted to 3 settings. The shock absorbers are available in 3 different colour combinations, and at a very good price/performance ratio.
The YSS X-Pro range convinces thanks to its continuously variable spring preload. They are also one of the few sports shock absorbers with TÜV certification. Ideal for those without the deepest of pockets and therefore a genuine alternative to the BITUBOs.
Conclusion: Anyone who weighs more than 60 kg or often takes a passenger knows to value harder shock absorbers. Curves are great to negotiate, potholes no longer mean panic attacks and high speeds are easy to master.
SIP-TIP: Order new silent rubber and spacer nuts at the same time.
