45mm INTRAX McPherson STRUTS

STRUTS are an essential part in the McPherson front wheel- steering-construction.

STRUTS have to provide linear guiding and turning movement at the same time.
STRUTS determine installation stiffness as well as sensitivity almost up to 100%.

Intrax recently introduced a new strut concept with a revolutionary combination of these features;
Heart of this strut-concept is an advanced 45mm hard chromed sliding tube.

Incorporated is a  “floating base bearing” providing an unbeatable stiffness due to maximum overlap possible. This feature also allows sensitive initial movement.
40mm piston diameter provides low stick-slip as well as low-weigth.

This combined with specially developed ultra-thin Bearings results in a maximum damper-diameter of 52mm still allowing the use of light-weight racing-line springs with 60mm internal diameter.

These 45mm struts can be combined with steel outer tubes and also with ligth-weight aluminium tubes.
These tubes are made from aircraft spec "7075" aluminium and are available in many beautifull colours.
