09-10 Sportsman Quads -Rear Shockwave System - HQ Series

Part #: 14035410


Price: $950.00

The Sportsman Quads need some serious fine-tune adjustment abilities to ride properly, and our suspensions systems can allow just that. Our ATV suspension packages are separated into two basic components: our ShockWave system and our control system which controls and adjusts the airbags.

 

The ShockWave


Since its introduction in 1999, the ShockWave has proven to be the most significant development in air suspensions... ever! Shockwaves have been the cornerstone of our business model for the past decade and up until now, we only manufactured them for cars and trucks. Now we have a kit for your UTV.

ShockWaves provide a simple, high-tech way to provide the ultimate adjustable suspension design. The ShockWave mounts just like a coilover and replaces the coil spring with an adjustable air spring for a huge range of tuning options. Its basic construction design consists of a shock surrounded by an air spring with mounts below and above the unit. This allows for an easy bolt-on installation. The Shockwaves are built with quality rubber and are built to last.

Features:

• Easy bolt-on installation
• Adjustable spring rates
• Ability to level vehicle when loaded
• Provides a comfortable ride
• Aluminum impact forged construction allows leak free operation
• Available with adjustable shock valving
• Monotube design for superior oil control
• Easy & precise valve adjustment with 26 rebound clicks

 

Do you need adjustable shocks?


Since the shock absorber is really what controls how the suspension works, it plays a big role. Whether you’re running in a straight line or going around corners, it’s all about traction: traction going forward; traction going sideways. The requirements are different, but a shock that offers variable valving plus a wide range of travel can work effectively in both applications. A non-adjustable shock, out of the box, may not have the optimal damping for your ATV. It’s like guessing a lottery number: there are too many variables, and too many preferred individual driving styles. Get an adjustable shock and tune it until it delivers the performance and/or ride quality that you want - then continue experimenting whenever trail or road conditions change.

A single adjustable ("SA") shock sets the rebound force of the shock travel with 26 clicks of adjustment and is a no-brainer if you're willing to pay a little more; it’s a phenomenal tuning aid. The only drawback is the work involved, but it pays off in performance.
