Elka Elite 46mm Shocks
Elite 46mm Rhino Shocks
For the DuneGuide.com Rhino
Buildup, we decided to go with Elka Elite 46mm shocks to go with our Mason
Motorsports Long Travel Kit and Gorilla
Axles. Elka just released this new shock in 2006. They 46mm Elites aren't
some made over ATV shocks. They are a new ground up design made specifically
for UTVs. The bigger diameter and remote reservoirs allow more oil displacement
for better control of the damping and cooler operating temperature. The Elite
Series also features high and low-speed compression adjustment, providing
maximum adjustability for optimal traction and control.
Elka Elite shock adjustment options and their benefits
Threaded preload adjustment
This adjustment is standard on all Elka Suspension shock absorbers.
It provides ride-height adjustability and compensates for additional
weight when charging. A special tool is provided.
Switchable crossover spacers
All Elka Suspension shock absorbers have multi-spring configurations
that feature switchable crossover spacers. These plastic spacers between
the springs control the transition between the different springs, thus
altering the overall spring rate. You can switch the orientation to
choose between a supple ride and a more responsive one.
This adjustment provides proper traction by keeping the wheels on the
ground. It is also needed when charging. The rebound adjustment controls
how fast the wheels will come back to full extension after an impact.
Turn it clockwise to slow down the rebound or counter-clockwise to speed
High- and low-speed compression adjustment
This device allows for independent adjustment of the shock absorber's
high- and low-speed compression damping stages to deliver both optimum
reactivity to small bumps and the right resistance for large impacts.
The high-velocity damping for big hits, sharp edges and jumps can be
fine-tuned independently from the low-velocity damping for turning,
cornering and accelerating.
