The ELKA Suspension Stage 5 FRONT & REAR shocks for the CAN-AM DEFENDER HD10 2016-2017 are the ultimate shock absorbers for drivers looking for the maximum performance for their UTV's. They are designed around 3 key performance factors: high hydraulic flow, lightweight components and low-friction internal and moving parts. The perfectly balanced combination of those three factors allow a more precise tuning and much smoother damping action than anything else currently available for UTVs. Extreme riders can get better bump absorption and greater comfort while racers will significantly increase their speed and control. Arguably, the Stage 5 shocks are the most comfortable and best performing race-level shocks on the market today.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 maneuverability
Allows precise fine-tuning of all aspects of the suspension, without the need to compromise
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 (With Adjustable Crossover Lockrings): 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. The adjustable crossover lockrings provides precise adjustment of the transition from the dual-rate springs to the main spring, allowing fine tuning of the plush initial portion of the wheel travel vs. firmer spring platform deeper in the travel to resist bottoming.
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.
High-Speed Compression: Allows fine-tuning of the damping resistance when the shock is being compressed quickly. This adjustment controls the resistance upon landing from jumps, harsh or sudden square-edged impacts, riding at high speed over whoops, choppy terrain or tire tracks. To use, turn the black knob clockwise to increase damping resistance, therefore making the suspension stiffer or turn counter-clockwise to reduce damping resistance, therefore making the suspension softer.
