Showa Spring with Air Assist - Vital MX Pit Bits: Anaheim 1 - Motocross Pictures - Vital MX

Showa supported teams have made a big switch in the off-season. Going primarily from the SFF TAC system (some with spring assist) to a Showa Conventional Spring Fork with Air Assist. How does it work? It's a standard spring fork with the ability to regulate air pressure in the outer chamber in low volumes. The purpose? The ability to add pressure for situations it can be helpful. Such as running a fork with a slightly soft spring rate for good initial feel and settling characteristics, then adding a few PSI to make the fork speed sensitive enough for good bottoming resistance. The fork has just been rolled out and to our understanding, even though most Showa riders are equipped with this fork not all are running any PSI, as some haven't had the fork long enough to test it. While others are taking advantage of the system. We're doing a log of all the suspension systems being used this next week, so peek back for it!

    I just ordered one for my 350exc & look forward to giving it a try! I carry a lot of gear & luggage when going on adventure trips, not to mention I like my setup soft, so i think this product is will be a good fit for my setup! They have kick ass service too. I actually spoke to the owner Charlie & he sounds like a stand up guy w/ a lot of knowledge.

    Do these forks have springs in both legs or just one? Are they similar to the new Pro Circuits SFF air to spring kit?
