MAX IV SP

【MAX IV SP】

The sport model to have a comfortable drive even in the winding road.

This «MAX IV SP» is the ultimate sport model for such a high grip radial tire. It will transfer the feelings straight to driver all kinds of information such as tire, road surface condition and traction. It’s a perfect street sport model suspension for people who love to drive fast but still want comfort.

  •      Single Tube Damper Design: Mono tube dampers allow for more accurate and stable control and adjustment of dampening. Lower ride height and center of gravity gives a more stable ride.
  •     Dust Boot: Protect the shaft from the flying stones.
  •     PNE Coating: Using this special surface coating provides 5 times better durability over standard galvanising. This prevents build-up around the threads of the adjustment areas allowing for easier height adjustment.
  •     M Shaft (Φ46 normal type): With the new design of cylinder shaft since the HIPERMAX M-1, MAX IV increased the cylinder shaft size to have a firm damping even at a little stroke range by optimizing the oil pressure characteristic. We mainly adopted this to the rear damper that can have a better driving experience.
  •     Adopted Pillow Ball Upper Mount: For more accurate and sharp steering.
  •     New Design Needle: Newly designed needle has been used to revise the very low speed and middle and high speed dampening which is key to a comfort ride.
  •     Reduction of Unsprung Weight: In order to reduce unsprung weight, bracket, ride height adjusters and lock nuts are made from aluminium. (Not for all vehicles)
  •     30 Step Damping Force Adjustment: 30 levels of dampening adjustment allow fine tune adjustment for street, circuit winding roads, highway, or the weight of the vehicle.

MAX IV GT Spec-AMAX IV GT Spec-A

Ultimate Street Damper with Latest Theory Based on MAX IV GT

«MAX IV GT Spec-A» was developed based on the thought of what is the best for a street sports damper eliminating the stereotype of the aftermarket sports damper.
Experience the mild damping and profound ride feeling from the moment on the accelerator is stepped on.

  • Single Tube Damper Design: Mono tube dampers allow for more accurate and stable control and adjustment of dampening. Lower ride height and centre of gravity gives a more stable ride.
  • Dust Boot: Protect the shaft from the flying stones.
  • PNE Coating: Using this special surface coating provides 5 times better durability over standard galvanising. This prevents build-up around the threads of the adjustment areas allowing for easier height adjustment.
  • «M Shaft»: With the new design of cylinder shaft since the HIPERMAX M-1, MAX IV increased the cylinder shaft size to have a firm damping even at a little stroke range because of the optimized oil pressure characteristic. We mainly adopted this to the rear damper that can have a better driving experience.
  • New Design Needle: Newly designed needle has been used to revise the very low speed and middle and high speed dampening which is key to a comfort ride.
  • Reduction of Unsprung Weight: In order to reduce unsprung weight, bracket, ride height adjusters and lock nuts are made from aluminium. (Not for all vehicles)
  • 30 Step Damping Force Adjustment: 30 levels of dampening adjustment allow fine tune adjustment for street or circuit.
  • Secured Effective Stroke Length: For a vehicle height adjustment type suspension, the wide adjustable range is one of advantages. «MAX IV GT» and «S-style» series have wider vehicle height adjustable ranges for a wide variety of purposes of use. However, for «MAX IV GT Spec-A», unused range for vehicle height adjustment is utilized in the effective stroke length for ride quality improvement and higher and more stable driving performance.
  • New Design Bump Rubber: Newly designed bump rubbers act as sub-springs across a wide bump range enabling the main spring rate to be reduced which provides the stable and superior driving performance.
  • Rally driver Mr. Toshihiro Arai: Rally driver Mr. Toshihiro Arai joined testing and his experience and feedback was utilized to finalize the setup. High ride quality and superior driving performance are implemented in an extremely high level.
