The ELKA Suspension Stage 4 FRONT shocks for the ARCTIC CAT WILDCAT X LTD 2012-2016 are derived directly from ELKA's top-end Stage 5 model, with which it shares most of the same components. It features a single external compression adjustment knob that controls the low-speed compression damping that is combined with an internal high-speed blow-off circuit which relieves peak pressure upon impacts to achieve race-level performance in a package that is more accessible and easier to adjust.If you require faster shipment, have any kind of questions, or wish to inquire about other international shipping options, please contact us!
Helps increase and maintain speed over rough terrain and bumps
Reduce excessive weight transfers such as body roll, diving and squatting
Prevents bottoming-out upon harsh square-edged impacts and potholes
Provides increased traction in all conditions for maximum maneuvrability
Allows good control of key parameters without too much complexity
ELKA Shocks custom built for your UTV:
Custom setup includes: Make/Model/Year, Rider/Passenger Weight, Type of Riding (Recreational Trails, MX Racing, XC Racing, Desert, Dunes or Flat Track Racing), Geometry (Stock or Aftermarket), Tires and extra payload. Basically each ELKA Shock is individually designed for your exact application, build time is just 15 days. Once we receive your order we will contact you to gather all required information for the Setup!
Threaded Spring Preload: Lets the rider fine-tune the initial force applied on the springs and precisely balance the weight distribution across the front and rear wheels while setting up the ride height (ground or chassis clearance) and to lower or raise the vehicle to adapt to various situations or to suit your personal preference. To use, turn the preload adjustment ring clockwise (from top of the shock) to increase preload and raise the vehicle or turn counter-clockwise to reduce preload and lower the vehicle.
Low-Speed Compression: Allows fine-tuning of the damping resistance when the shock is being compressed slowly. This adjustment controls body roll when cornering, rear-end squatting under hard acceleration, front-end diving when braking, riding over whoops at moderate speed, undulations and elevation changes in the terrain. To use, turn the red knob clockwise to increase damping resistance, therefore making the suspension stiffer or turn counter-clockwise to reduce damping resistance, therefore making the suspension softer.
Rebound Damping: Controls the speed at which the shock absorber returns to its fully extended position after being compressed from an impact, keeping the wheels on the ground for maximum traction and reducing the bucking effect caused by the spring pressure pushing back after an impact. To use, turn the adjuster clockwise to slow down the rebound or turn counter-clockwise to speed up the rebound.
