Anti-Bottoming System Variations
Hydraulic anti-bottoming system prevents fork from harsh metal to metal clunk. Our ABS provides a ramp-up of resistance to cushion the end of travel. Fork oil is forced through a tight tolerance concentric tapered piston and ring area slowing the end of stoke of the stanchion tube or cartridge rod.
