ONE PART ENGINEERING, ONE PART RIDE STOKE
Making your mountain bike experience better is why we exist. The ELEVENSIX is not just a rear shock, it’s a trans-formative ride experience that allows you to get the most out of your ride. Traction and grip like you’ve never experienced before. Plush, seemingly never ending travel that is somehow impossibly supportive at the same time. Big hit control that increases confidence and allows you to ride sections of trail that you never considered before. This isn’t just a rear shock, this is you more confident than you’ve ever been on a bike.
SPEED SENSITIVE HYDRAULIC BOTTOMING CONTROL
We’ve all been there. You case a jump, come up short, or just finally get up the courage to do the big huck…only to find the landing is to flat.
Our new Speed Sensitive Hydraulic Bottoming system is your solution.
Developed in conjunction with the hybrid HyperCoil progressive spring system, the secondary shaft piston provides large increases in compression damping during the last 15% of shock stroke. Because it’s completely independent of the main damping piston there are no compromises in the shocks performance throughout the stroke.
Say goodbye to harsh bottoming as the new Hydraulic Bottom Out Control allows you to ride harder and go bigger with a smooth and supportive end of stroke feel.
HYBRID HYPERCOIL PROGRESSIVE SPRING SYSTEM
Working with HyperCo, a world leader in performance racing springs, ensures that only the finest materials and most advanced spring designs are utilized for each ELEVENSIX shock. Offered in 25lb/in increments, each HyperCoil is specifically designed to be the lightest and most accurate MTB spring available today. The exclusive OBD design allows for perfect positioning of the end coils for an extremely linear compression characteristic that is not only great for performance, but keeps the spring from making noise, rubbing, and binding on the shock body. To compliment the linear HyperCoil spring, progressive open cell rod bumpers are specifically engineered to control ending stroke progression and spring rate, giving riders plush initial travel with plenty of ramp up to control the handling of large jumps and drops.
As a rear shock spring is compressed the ends rotate slightly causing binding and a loss of small bump sensitivity in traditional MTB shocks.Each ELEVENSIX however, features our exclusive PTX spring bearing and 360 degree captured spring retainers to ensure that this rotation happens friction free leading to increases in small bump sensitivity and traction.
DUAL OVERHEAD COMPRESSION VALVES
Are you finding that your current shocks pre-determined lever positions just don’t give you the ride characteristic that you’re looking for? We believe that it’s time to remove the constraints and put the control at your fingertips. Our Patented Dual Overhead Compression Valve System allows you to define your riding experience. Each valve features both Low-Speed and High-Speed external compression adjustment allowing you to define your perfect setup. Are you looking for a firm mode for climbing and an ultra plush mode for descending? Maybe you’re more than technical climbing type who likes to clean the challenging sections and like a firmer “trail” feel when descending. With our exclusive design you define your ride modes and are able to simply toggle between each mode on-the-fly with our easy to use ergonomic external lever.
All of this adjustment also now comes easier than ever. The new ELEVENSIX features completely sealed adjusters that are re-shaped, larger in size, and feature an internal bushing system to make them easy to turn.
We’ve also made improvements to the vale system itself providing an increased range of adjustment, as well as a reduction in damping hysteresis resulting in improved small bump sensitivity and support under high frequency bumps.
So go ahead…Define your ride experience.
MOTORSPORT GRADE SPHERICAL BEARING EYELET MOUNTS
Decreasing friction directly leads to increases in small bump sensitivity and traction providing a more comfortable ride. PUSH precision-ground and hardened spherical ball bearings eliminate both rotational friction from linkages as well as shaft binding friction caused from flex under load. Quickly realizing that traditional off the shelf bearings were not up to the task, PUSH engineers went to work developing a specific system to address both the harsh riding conditions as well as high loads with unparalleled durability.
4-PORT SYMMETRICAL PROGRESSIVE DAMPING PISTON
The damping piston found in the all new ELEVENSIX features completely redesigned compression and rebound port profiles, providing smoother flow and an increase in damper response leading to a more controlled ride. The new piston assembly also features reconfigured progressive compression and rebound valving stacks providing less damping on small and high frequency bumps, while providing greater damping on larger impacts and g-outs.
This new design delivers just the right amount of damping to maximize both comfort and control.
HIGH VOLUME LOW DISPLACEMENT RESERVIOR
In order to ensure consistent traction and bump eating performance even on the most demanding descents, the ELEVENSIX features a large volume reservoir and IFP. The large area and unique seal gland design of the IFP allow for minimal movement in high frequency bumps mimicking the low friction characteristic of a bladder system and increasing traction without the negative attributes such as gas migration and bladder deformation from heat.
