TRACK™ System


The purpose of the TRACK™ System is to increase shock performance over high-speed square edge bumps. It increases traction and control, by ensuring constant contact between the tire rubber and the track surface. It also reduces feedback through the handlebars, reducing the dreaded “harm-pump” and increases rider endurance.

How it works

The TRACK™ system momentarily reduces the hydraulic resistance of the shock absorber under extra high speed blows. The pressure threshold at which the TRACK™ System operates and the duration of the pressure relief can be controlled with the TRACK™ star shaped knob.

A spring loaded floating piston inside the TRACK™ System controls the threshold pressure and the travel of the floating piston will dictate the duration of the pressure relief. By turning in the TRACK™ knob (clockwise), the spring preload is increased thus increasing the threshold pressure. Subsequently, turning in the knob will also reduce the floating piston travel and the pressure relief duration.

When & Where

The TRACK system will provide an advantage in different track conditions and on various surface types:

MX: Braking bumps, sharp edge woops, high speed ripples
XC: Uneven terrain in corners, tree roots, holes
Desert: High speed ripples, rocks, holes


Set-up procedure

Below are the steps to take to ensure the TRACK system is always performing at it highest potential.

Set correct Ride Height (sag)
Turn the TRACK™ System knob clockwise until it stops, this disengages the system
Ride the vehicle to set the High-Speed Compression, Low-Speed Compression and Rebound adjustments. Refer to our Owner's Manual if needed. Those adjustments must be set properly before using and/or setting the TRACK™ System. Adjustments should be made in small increments (2-3 click)
Open the TRACK™ System one or two clicks at a time
The TRACK™ System is properly set when it provides additional plushness upon harsh impacts without causing excessive diving in turns or causing bottoming-out
