Low friction seals
Shaft seals aren’t the most glamorous components of any suspension system, but they are the unsung heroes of the suspension world. With the new EVO suspension for the GS family, these new seals reduce any stiction on the shock shaft, allowing it to flow freely and smoothly. This allows the precision damping to be unobstructed resulting in pure performance.
New electromagnetic valve
This is a big one. The engineers have taken everything learned over the past 10 years of shock development and put it into this all-new electromagnetic valve that pairs perfectly with the electronic suspension software from BMW. When you scroll the thumbwheel on your GS and ask for a change, the valve will understand it perfectly and the valve will respond with precision and consistency in demanding situations. Not every aftermarket upgrade for the Telelever will do that.
That’s no ordinary bumper
While not as exciting as the electromagnetic valve, the bumper at the end of the shock shaft isn’t just your run-of-the-mill bumper. It has been specifically engineered and uses a proprietary shape and unique polymer structure to achieve a perfect ramp rate that progressively slows the travel at the end of the stroke. Why should you care? Because what you feel as the rider, especially if you hit a big bump or land from a jump, is better control as the shock will use every millimeter of its stroke to smooth out the ride.
