Traditional shock absorbers [passive dampers is the technical term] have gotten quite good at REACTING to road and track irregularities. The Instinct System now allows ANTICIPATION of these irregularities AND the ability to change the shock damping forces to minimize them. The end result is not only optimized handling qualities across a wide range of track conditions, but an immensely improved ride quality as well!
Think of tuning your shocks in a 3 dimensional world…similar to tuning EFI. Instead of relying on only the static valving inside the shock, you can now influence the dampening forces as a function of 7 unique sensor areas. This is technology that is currently is used by high level racing teams and OEM manufacturers around the world.
