QA1 is excited to announce the brand new 16 Series shock absorber. The 16 Series is an aluminum monotube shock, designed for late models and crate late models. Featuring a hard anodized, 6061 aluminum threaded body, this shock is designed to be a top performer for years. This economically priced aluminum monotube performs consistently from start to finish and is great for the budget minded racer!
The 16 Series Aluminum Monotube Shock has all of the high quality features of other QA1 shocks and also features:
Linear vs. Digressive Valving
The linear piston creates a force curve that features an increase in force directly related to an increase in speed — the quicker the shock moves, the stiffer it becomes. The digressive piston creates a force that does not increase proportionally to an increase in speed — the force curve does not increase directly related to shock speed.
Additional Piston Options
QA1 also offers the new Hi-Lo piston as an additional accessory. The Hi-Lo piston features kidney shaped ports on one face and round ports on the other, allowing the piston to be flipped to create a softer curve on one side coupled with a stiffer curve on the other side. Part #9057-248.
