Zedling Suspensions

Adjustable Damping Shock Absorber- A performance myth or a true upgrade

Here we talk about the need of damping adjustment & the limitations of prevalent adjustable damping shocks. Zedling Suspension believes that the value created by adjustable damping shocks in terms of adjustment overlooks some serious performance compromise & this makes adjustable shocks not the ideal choice for motorsports rider looking for performance. Damping: Damping is the single most critical function of motorcycle suspension which is meant to absorb the movements arising from road undulations & help maintain the control of your bike. Compression damping controls the rate at which the shock compresses while tackling the road undulations whereas rebound damping…

Suspension Rebuild & Revalve-What to expect

Here we talk about the need of damping adjustment & the limitations of prevalent adjustable damping shocks. Zedling Suspension believes that the value created by adjustable damping shocks in terms of adjustment overlooks some serious performance compromise & this makes adjustable shocks not the ideal choice for motorsports rider looking for performance. Suspension rebuild refers to disassembling & re-assembling the suspension assembly by cleaning the internal components, replacing wear components & filling fresh damping oil to correct specification. Suspension rebuild becomes inevitable since internal components wear & oil deteriorates its properties due to continuous friction & temperatures generated. Avoiding or…

What should be the optimum motion ratio for ATV suspension

All terrain vehicle (ATV) is also known as quadricycle & is meant to handle a large variety of terrains which demands an optimum suspension design. ATV suspension designer considers many factors viz., damping ratio, wheel travel, bumper travel, strength requirement, packaging constraints & light weight shock absorber however the most critical is motion ratio. Motion ratio is simply defined as the ratio of shock absorber travel to wheel travel.Motion Ratio = Shock absorber travel / Wheel travel The value of motion ratio is very important to arrive at ride frequency, ride rate, wheel rate, spring rate, damping ratio, critical damping…

Motorcycle Inverted forks-Not just about looks

Recently you see an increasing number of bike models equipped with an inverted fork. Inverted forks, also called upside-down or USD forks are essentially a large leap in technology over the conventional telescopic forks. These inverted forks look sporty & add considerably to the overall appeal of the bike. Visually these inverted forks appear as the conventional upright telescopic forks are fixed on a bike in an inverted manner. This inverted fitment of forks on a motorcycle brings a major change in its rigidity. Irrespective of upright or inverted, every fork has an inner telescoping tube & an outer tube….

Pros & Cons of ATV Coil over & Air shocks

All-terrain vehicle (ATV) is also known as quadricycle & is meant to handle a large variety of terrains. The suspension system of ATV is typically a double wishbone system which is suitable for achieving a lower center of gravity for different sports events viz., Baja SAE. The double wishbone is equipped with shock absorber which is either a coil over shocks or an Air shocks. Coil over shocks uses helical coil springs to withstand the loads whereas air shocks use an enclosed air chamber which sustains the entire load coming on the wheels. The damping system is necessarily a hydraulic…
