We would like to introduce the Wilbers LDC Nivomat
system to the FJR lovers here! The Wilbers LDC Nivomat
shock absorber incorporates a fully automatic hydro-pneumatic leveling system, developed with the technology of the famed ZF Nivomat system that comes with a 5 year warranty. Once the single rider sag is set, the rider will not need to manually adjust anything on their suspension, even if they have luggage or a new partner on board!
This system’s great advantage on a bike is held in its unique combination of self-leveling suspension mixed with a progressive gas spring and dynamic damping action. Essentially the leveling, damping adjustment, and spring rate systems are all housed in one unit. Activation and control of the unit happens mechanically and hydraulically.
How it works
- The Wilbers LDC is activated and ready to go from the start.
- When the rider gets on their vehicle, it will drop to their pre-defined height set by the rider sag.
- Whenever the vehicle drops below the standard rider sag when extra weight (a passenger or luggage) is added, the system will attempt to return to its pre-defined height.
- After driving approximately ¼ mile, the bike automatically adjusts its damping to return to its pre-defined height.
The LDC Nivomat system is pre-set in a way so that it allows the rider to reach their pre-set sag for solo use immediately, about 1/3 of the total spring travel distance. In this state, the system offers a reduced spring rate and damping compared to a conventional shock absorber for maximum comfort. Whenever a passenger and/or luggage is added to the bike, the vehicle will sink, compressing the spring which negatively affects the vehicle geometry and handling. With a standard shock, the rider would have to adjust the preload on their spring, which will bring the bike back to a proper sag. However, in this standard shock, unlike the LDC system, there is no dynamic change of damping and the rider’s experience may not be the best it could be.
With a Wilbers LDC Nivomat shock, you simply set it and forget it
. The shock does the work for the rider, increasing performance, comfort, and rideability!
