KONI SPECIAL ACTIVE DAMPERS (SHOCKS)
KONI Special ACTIVE is the next generation of premium shock absorbers that offer superior handling without compromise. It is the latest advancement in the KONI product portfolio. Utilising the most recent generation of KONI’s patented Frequency Selective Damping technology, it controls large body motions and cornering forces but smooths expansion joints and rough roads for improved comfort.
The basics of damping selection are that you only use the low speed circuit at moderate speeds without much cornering. Any other conditions call on the high speed setting. The trouble is small ruts and bumps. They occur at a much higher frequency than a large hump or aggressive cornering loads.
What KONI have done, using a patented system, is make the damper behave differently at different frequencies. This means that on rough roads the damper works at a softer setting and yet all other high speed work at lower frequencies results in a firmer damper. Therefore it works like a Sports damper around the corners but provides the smooth ride of a comfort damper at higher frequency events. In the words of a customer
"I’m pleased with the Koni Special Active units. Initially I didn’t notice much difference but, having covered a few hundred miles, they definitely round off the bumps of lumpy roads. As a result the ride is smoother and the general driving experience improved, I’ll be happy to provide a positive review of my experience of Balance Motorsports." Richard, VW Golf
My Gen 3 Mini Cooper S 2 litre Exclusive was nearly perfect except for the rock hard suspension. Julian patiently took all the time needed, by email and telephone, to discuss the options and we agreed on the Koni Special Active dampers, which he then sourced for me and arranged for Balance Motor Works to install.
"Yes the car feels better - less harsh and it's a more marked improvement on the dual carriageway rather than around town .My wife thinks it's much better so thanks for your advice and help with this!" Robert, Mk7 Golf GTI
