- Stainless steel reducer bushings (where the bolts pass through the mounting eyelets). Other companies use aluminum which is a softer material, and can contract or deform shape over time
- The same reinforced seal head as used in the Touratech Adventure bike shocks (TracTive designed and manufactures the Touratech shocks). This seal head is very robust, provides long life, and rarely develops leaks
- 46mm pistons with16mm induction hardened, chro-moly shafts.
- The front shock for this application is 46 mm for higher strength and high oil capacity compared to the stock 36mm front shock
- Rear shocks feature a "PDS" valve - Position dependent Damping System - Utilizing a secondary piston, this system creates a "pillow" effect designed to progressively increase damping to reduce harsh bottom outs. This feature is normally found only in the top of the line "Extreme" Touratech shocks
TracTive Dynamic (DDA) Plug & Play ESA shocks are specially designed for the original BMW ESA equipment. The shock itself is 100% new, only the spring preload motor is harvested from your original shock.
The engineers at TracTive invented ESA for BMW back in 2005, and they have a patent on their superior dynamic damping valve so you can count on their system functionality.
TracTive ESA conversion benefits include:
- If you original preload motor ever fails, a TracTive electronic preload motor can be installed which makes this shock withstand the test of time.
