Reliability was the main task put before KYB designers when creating the Skorched4’s shock absorber range. A feature of all Skorched4’s shock absorbers is its reinforced metal housings, which combined with a two-pipe design, provides reliable protection against off-road damage. In addition, all Skorched4’s shock absorbers are designed with strong, hardened 16mm rods, and special reinforced materials applied to guide bushings, piston and piston seal.
KYB engineers also maximised the volume of fluid inside the Skorched4’s shock absorber, by increasing the diameter of the cylinder, piston and rod. This allows for the efficient dissipation of heat during intense off-road operation, reducing chances of aeration and suspension fade.
