With the title “Enduro on a new level” WP published the first information about the new WP XPLOR PRO shock absorber: “WP Suspension is pleased to announce the launch of the new WP XPLOR PRO 8946 shock absorber. The innovative product from many years of experience in motorsport and handmade Perfection pushes the performance of KTM Enduro Bikes and their riders to their physical limits …
XPLOR PRO helps enduro riders to drive towards their destination faster, more efficiently and with significantly more traction, even in the most demanding terrain. The duo of technical all-stars, consisting of SUPERTRAX and PROGRESSIVE DAMPING SYSTEM (PDS), works perfectly as a unit to improve ground contact, enables extremely direct feedback from the ground and offers reliable damping performance with sufficient reserves, no matter what the driver behind the next hilltop expected.
The WP XPLOR PRO 8946 shock absorber is unimpressed by any obstacles the terrain has to offer. Thanks to the highly innovative SUPERTRAX technology, the rebound speed after lifting the rear wheel can be optimized using adjusters and the time without contact with the ground can be drastically reduced. With the XPLOR PRO 8946 shock absorber, enduro riders can get back on the gas faster and dig their rear wheels into the dirt without wasting time.
The lower compression of the motorcycle and more upright ergonomics reduce the physical strain on the driver and give him a decisive advantage in the race:
- Increased control and a more comfortable driving experience even in difficult terrain
- Individual adjustment of the rebound movement and speed
- More grip and traction of the rear wheel and thus improved acceleration
- SUPERTRAX is used by the most successful riders of the enduro factory teams
The XPLOR PRO 8946 shock absorber will soon be available for the following motorcycles in Austria:
KTM: EXC (150, 250, 300); EXC-F (250, 350, 450, 500); -From MY 2017-
