*Smashpot Spring is not included in this option, please select a spring here.
Presenting the Smashpot - a fork coil spring conversion system for single crown enduro forks, featuring externally adjustable hydraulic anti-bottoming technology to deliver precisely the amount of bottoming resistance you need. The benefits of coil are clear: if your first priority for your fork is outright performance and grip, get yourself a Smashpot.
Weight increase of approximately 250-450g (dependent on spring rate and fork's existing spring system)
SMOOTH AND CONSISTENT
Air springs have improved substantially over the years and Vorsprung have been at the forefront of air spring development for years, so they got no bridges to sell you. Yeah, coils are heavier than air and for some riders that alone is a dealbreaker, fair enough. The advantages of coil springs, however, are clear:
BOTTOM OUT RESISTANCE
Low weight aside, air springs outperform coil springs in one critical area: bottoming resistance. The hydraulic bottoming control valve addresses this with a speed sensitive shimmed valve which engages progressively and seamlessly in the last 50mm of travel, bringing the fork to a smooth and controlled stop at the end of the travel. High energy and low energy inputs are effectively managed without harshness. Easy tool-free external adjustment ensures you get as much or as little bottoming resistance as you need at the turn of a dial. Increased stability as energy is dissipated, rather than stored and thrown back at you.
