Types and Characteristics of Mountain Suspension Forks
" />
When it comes to mountain biking, having the right suspension fork can make all the difference in your riding experience. A good suspension fork will absorb shock, improve control, and provide a smoother ride. In this article we'll look at the different types of mountain bike suspension forks and their features to help you choose the right suspension fork for your mountain bike.
When riding under the action of gravity and resistance, the shock absorber fork is compressed to the extreme, and then rebounds and repeats this action continuously. During the ride Greatly reduce unnecessary bumps, provide a more comfortable riding experience, and have the effect of avoiding injuries and rollovers. Now, let's look at the types of shock-absorbing forks from the shock-absorbing medium, which can be basically classified: coil suspension forks, air suspension forks and hybrid suspension forks.

Coil Suspension Forks: The spring is used as the shock-absorbing medium. Its structure is that there are springs on both sides of the front fork, and a little oil inside to reduce friction.Its advantage is that it is cheap and can meet daily riding requirements. It is very suitable for people who do not have high requirements for bicycles. The disadvantage is that it will become a hard fork after a long time of use, and the degree of softness and hardness cannot be adjusted.

Air Suspension Forks: The air suspension front fork tube uses air as the rebound medium, and the other side uses oil as the damping medium.Its advantage is that it is lighter in weight, and the air pressure can be adjusted according to the weight to prevent the stroke tube from bottoming out. It can protect the wrist during high-speed riding. The downside is that the response to small vibrations is not sensitive enough.
Hybrid Suspension Forks: This type of fork is based on the spring front fork, and oil damping is added on the other side of the spring. Oil damping is to use oil to adjust the speed of spring rebound. This type of fork generally has rebound adjustment, locking function, and some stroke adjustment functions on the basis of adjusting softness and hardness.Under normal circumstances, this kind of fork has no advantage in weight, but the locking function can show great advantages on flat roads and climbing slopes. It is relatively strong, sensitive to small vibrations, can adjust softness and hardness, and needs to replace the shock absorber oil every six months.

Everyone should choose products according to their own needs, so as to get a better riding experience.
