Factory Team Machined and Tapered 12mm Shock Pistons


New Factory Team machined pistons for the 12mm big bore shocks take performance to the next level. Precision CNC machined pistons allow for the best fitment and concentricity with the shock body to improve handling and consistency. The new pistons are also tapered for independent tuning of compression and rebound.

 

Terminology

  • Compression movement: Shock piston traveling upward toward the top of the shock
    Rebound movement: Shock piston traveling downward toward the bottom of the shock
  • Tapered piston: One side of the piston face is flat; the other is tapered / angled
    Flat piston: Top and bottom of the piston face are flat

Difference between tapered and flat pistons

  • A flat piston will travel at the same speed in compression as it does in rebound (given equal force is provided in both directions)
  • A tapered piston will travel faster in the direction of the taper/angle.
