The forks consist of an open cartridge layout with a spring in each circuit and split damping functions. Compression can be adjusted from the left side and rebound on the right via clickers situated on the top of the fork tube. Additionally with the standard pre-load adjuster pre-load can be adjusted by the rider without the use of tools making the new system simple and easy to set up.
- WP rear shock
The WP DCC rear shock is designed to provide advanced damping characteristics while keeping to a compact and lightweight design. The new rear shock weighs only 3.7 kg which is 0.36 kg lighter than the previous version. With a pressure balance inside the shock damping is improved resulting in greater rider comfort and handling while the outer contour of the reservoir increases cooling. The component is also fully adjustable and matched to a linkage system with a specific geometry to deliver the best possible traction and absorption.
- Brembo brakes
Class-leading Brembo callipers and controls with high quality GSK discs deliver superior stopping power instilling confidence in all situations. For MY17 the rear brake calliper uses a smaller piston diameter 24mm instead of 26mm coupled with a 10mm longer rear brake lever the system delivers improved modulation and feeling.
