WP Suspension North America launches the new WP Xplor Pro 7448 Air Fork.
The new Xplor Pro 7448 air fork from WP Suspension uses WP Aer (air) technology, which uses air pressure instead of the traditional coil spring to hold the suspension up. The fork has a split-system design, with air pressure in one fork leg and fluid damping in the other leg.
The closed-cartridge Xplor Pro 7448 features WP’s Cone Valve technology, which not only reduces turbulence and cavitation, but also allows for extensive tunability. The fork fits a broad range of 2017+ KTM, Husqvarna and GasGas off-road models (see list at end of article).
Here is more from the WP Suspension press release:
The split system, equipped with a combination of WP AER technology, Cone Valve technology and closed-cartridge construction redefines the personal limits of any ambitious enduro fanatic and allows the perfect balance between extremely robust damping performance and the lightness and agility that is crucial for the perfect run to the podium.
To be prepared for even the toughest circumstances, flexibility is the ace up your sleeve. With the new WP Xplor Pro 7448 Air Fork, short-term changes in the track and other conditions are no problem. The Air Fork enables any adjustment of the air pressure directly at the AER fork leg for even big changes in driving dynamics on the trail or deep in the middle of nowhere. The fine-tuning is performed by using easy and quickly accessible adjusters for compression and rebound.
Developed and proven in professional enduro sports, the Xplor Pro 7448 Air Fork shines with WP Cone Valve technology and WP closed-cartridge design, which not only leads to unique response at high speeds, but also guarantees a constant damping performance with high puncture resistance after strong impacts.
