The FKA 100 provides you with fully adjustable rebound and compression circuits, outstanding comfort and performance – You need to give it a go.
We call the technology NIX because when you adjust the compression circuit, it will never affect the rebound circuit. And that entails a better comfort and performance output. Among the advantages with this design is the improved stability and control of the damping system, as well as ease of use as all the adjusters, both for compression and rebound damping as well as spring preload, is located at the top of each fork leg.
Different springs are available to cope with individual requirements, as well as an effective hydraulic stop inside the cartridge to prevent bottoming out. The compact design of the NIX cartridge means it will easily fit inside the upside-down original front forks of most medium-sized adventure bikes.
