All Fortune Auto shock absorbers use digressive piston technology which allows for stiff low-speed compression/rebound force. This gives more control of driver inputs such as roll, dive, and squat. However, at fast stroke speeds (i.e. high speed bumps) the suspension becomes supple in response to bumps and irregularities in the road.
35% greater range of damping adjustment
Generation 6 models benefit from an upgraded jetting assembly. In previous generations, the orifice bleed holes were hand drilled. Generation 6 bleed holes are now CNC machined allowing for more consistent damping adjustments between shocks. Furthermore, flow of the orifice bleed holes has increased and a re-designed jetting assembly is used, this yields a 35% increase in damping force adjustment providing the user with a shock that has more performance and adjustability.
Revised CNC machined components
New CNC machined adjustment knobs replace the outgoing cast molded knobs. These new machined adjustment knobs are hard anodized and more aesthetically pleasing. Updated shaft end caps are now lighter and showcase a more elegant design.
The ability to upgrade to 2-Way remote canisters at any time ensures that your investment is a sound one. Update your shocks without the need of investing into a complete new coilover system: simply send your 500 series shocks into our service center for the modular 2-Way upgrade. All 500 series dampers are fully rebuildable, serviceable, and can be custom valved at any time.
500 series damper shaft seals have 40% less drag than our previous models. This provides for less hysteresis and for superior control of driver inputs. Our new seals are made of a specially formulated Buna rubber compound that provides a great balance between reliability and performance! Since the shaft seal is the most important seal on the shock, a stronger seal will greatly improve quality and performance.
