Dr. Nano foam cell shock absorbers are designed for next level performance over nitro gas shock absorbers in those harsh demanding conditions.
By utilising the foam cell design, shock absorbers are able to resist fade far longer on corrugated roads, long or hard working 4WD trips or towing conditions
Dr. Nano twin tube foam cell shock absorbers are made from the world’s highest quality external and internal parts sourced worldwide. They provide a significant increase in performance over the standard shock absorbers. Originally equipped shock absorbers are prone to shock fade.
'Foam Cell' that makes all the difference is a micro-cellular foam insert that helps to drastically reduce the effects of shock fade, allowing your shocks to perform better for longer, even on the harshest of corrugations. Cavitation and Aeration are the undoing of any shock absorber. As the shock is worked harder, the oil and gas in the outer chamber begins to mix and form bubbles, lowering the viscosity of the oil. When this aerated oil passes through the valve, there is reduced resistance, stopping the shock form performing correctly. The Foam Cell insert, with its trapped gas micro cells takes up the empty space in the shock normally taken up by air or nitrogen gas. This eliminates the possibility of bubbles forming, allowing the shock to get on with the job with an unparalleled resistance to shock fade.
Where possible Dr. Nano design each part number to provide a longer shock absorber for more wheel travel, firmer valving for a more controlled ride and a larger body with increased oil capacity for cooler operation than the original vehicle shock absorbers.
Dr. Nano foam cell shock absorbers are built with multi-stage velocity sensitive valving to ensure the shock absorbers are capable of performing at any speeds.
Dr. Nano foam cell shock absorbers include Japanese NOK Multi-Lip seals, Fuchs German shock absorber oil, Natural Rubber bushings for reduced Noise Vibration Harshness, high quality Teflon piston rings and Double Chrome hardened rods are just a few of the components that put Dr. Nano foam cell shock absorbers ahead of the rest.
Dr. Nano foam cell shock absorbers include thicker external tube wall thickness up to 3mm on Dr. Nano shock absorbers & struts
Dr. Nano foam cell shock absorbers are also stripped down and components tested using different processes to ensure they meet Dr. Nano's strict quality requirements. Finally ride quality and in vehicle performance testing is performed to check final ride comfort, handling, load handling ability and performance to ensure each type of shock absorbers outperforms the best.
