Can I change length/standard afterwards?
I can't offer this, read why in the right colomn on the bottom
Can't you do that if I ask for it?
No - i am sorry!
You are not sure if this shock will fit in your frame?
Print out the suiting sheet (ensure that printed size is 100%), cut it out and check (extended AND compressed) in your frame:
The new "coil" shock
This is a coil shock. No it isn't, it is an air shock, but you can see it as a coil shock.
The negative chamber is sooo huge, that it provides (like the air spring in the forks) a kind of linear air spring. Some riders thought it is to soft, because it works so smooth.
Why does it look so strange ?
This kind of rear shock was already built by Peter Denk at Denk Engineering who worked for Scott, Cannondale and they made this in the Equalizer and Fox Dyad shocks. The looks come from a series circuit instead of an parallel circuit of damping and air spring. I think they have been ahead of the time with their pull shocks. Of course the Hover Shock is a push-shock, but it works with the same principal.
What are the benefits of this ?
- Ideal heat emission
The whole outer surface is heat emission surface. There is no isolation of oil from the air spring
- one dynamic seal less than an normal air-shock
- the two main seals are always running in oil
They can't run dry, this leads to soft break away force and long lasting performance
This are the 3 main benefits of the seriel circuit.
Lockout: The Intend Hover shock has a so called Softlock lever. It provides a quick closure of the loswpeed compression damping. The compression is much firmer. But it is not a hard lockout. You also cannot damage the internals if you forget to open the lockout. Also you will be able to compress the shock with closed Softlock.
Weight: 428g for 205x65mm Trunnion
460g for 230x65mm metric
Bushings: The eylets have the standard Fox/RS diameter: 15,08, you can mount your standard bushings, or buy some from HuberBuchsen with the shock.
Dials: external Lowspeed-Rebound and Lowspeed-Compression
Air: Highpressure (up to 600PSI) pump is included with the shock, volume spacers are included for progessivity.
Price: 989 Euro incl. VAT
Optional: 2,5mm, 5mm or 7,5mm travel reduction: 15 Euro / each
Optional: Huber bushings (black only) in your size: 25 Euro /each
Included in this price 3 month after purchase is a setup-tuning to your needs. You get the shock, you ride it, you can send it in for setup-tuning for free.
Shock is ready to order, pls drop an email for purchase: Cornelius.Kapfinger@gmx.de
It is very important that you know BEFORE purchase that I can't offer a change of length or mounting standard after purchase.
