Öhlins’ new CES8700 hydraulic valve is the cutting edge in semi-active suspension technology. The CES8700 hydraulic valve in semi-active shock absorbers eliminates the compromise between passenger comfort and car handling found in conventional shocks. By adapting the damper force based on the condition of the road and the settings preferred by the rider all four wheels work individually to maintain the optimal suspension setup. It enables the suspension to provide sportscar characteristics in cornering and lane changes while giving the ride of a limousine during cruising.
The CES8700 is built upon Öhlins’ well-known CES technology and is a further development of the successful CES4600 hydraulic valve which is widely used by several premium car brands.
