Putting it simply, the Touratech Suspension Cartridge Kit Extreme is a suspension strut for the fork and the absolute top end in terms of suspension technology. The Closed Cartridge is installed into the original fork. This way the fork bridge/handlebar mount, brakes and wheel control and handlebar geometry are retained in full. No additional modifications to the fork are required.
This Closed Cartridge is been developed perfectly for touring and riding with frequent and strongly differing loads and riding conditions or extreme requirements.
The Extreme setup compensates for any volume of luggage, from the rear bag to a loaded luggage system and/or a pillion rider. Spring preload, compression and rebound can be fully adjusted top-side. The damping oil is contained in a closed cartridge which allows precise dosing of the amount of oil. Thus the Closed Cartridge offers a significantly more refined and pleasant response behavior of the fork. The finely adjusted damping allows effective and precise suspension settings to match your personal riding style at all times, for all road conditions and intended uses, regardless of motorways/fast roads, country roads, country lanes, off-road sections, long-distance travel with big luggage or a speedy, ambitious driving style. Should exceptionally tough road conditions act on the front wheel, the integrated "Hydraulic End Stop" prevents mechanical impacting of the fork.
You will experience a completely new ride with your motorbike.
The basic setup is adjusted for the demanding adventure rider with luggage.
Adaptation for exceptional requirements is possible. The suspension strut is then customized by us to your requirements using a spring with a suitable spring rate and other configurations.
