Why Coil?

Air springs have improved substantially over the years - and we've been at the forefront of air spring development for years, so we've got no bridges to sell you. Yeah, coils are heavier than air, and for some riders that alone is a dealbreaker - fair enough. The advantages of coil springs, however, are clear:

Zero stiction or friction in a coil spring. And no moving seals in the spring system to wear out, cause friction or leak.

Zero spring rate variation allowing more mid-stroke support and consistency.

More oil in the fork - lubrication and service life are improved.

In short, improvements in sensitivity, grip, compliance, mid-stroke support and consistency, with reductions in harshness and hand pain.

Hydraulic Bottom Out

The main advantage of the air spring, besides weight, is the end-stroke resistance. Smashpot include a dedicated hydraulic system for the end-stroke of the Smashpot is active on the last 50 millimeters, preventing bottoming out. The adjustment is external, allowing for fine-tuning to minimize or maximize bottom-out resistance.
