Spring vs. air rear shock absorber

Spring vs. air rear shock absorber

In the world of motorcycles racing, and generally in any motorsport competition, it has always been a matter of weight.In the logic of “the lightest, the better” there has always been a constant research and development of new technologies and ideas to fulfill this need. Every component must be as light as possible and, keeping that in mind, even replacing the mechanical spring (700 grams circa) of a rear shock absorber with an air spring, can make the difference.That’s exactly what has been done, and the project here presented aims to test and verify the behavior of an air shock absorber, comparing it to a traditional one.
