“Coil-like performance” is often advertised but rarely achieved when it comes to air spring rear shocks - The Intend Hover Gamechanger lives up to this claim!
The project started on a blank page as the goal was to do things differently. Intend Hover Gamechanger shocks are designed around a separated damping and air spring assembly to keep heat management in check. The negative air chamber is way larger compared to more traditional designs and set up to a slightly higher pressure to improve suppleness.
A port between both air chambers allows fine adjustments instead of using a common bleed valve. A linear spring curve is made possible by using increased air volume. Ramp-up is also tuneable by using volume reducers that are changed in a matter of minutes. Feedback from team riders inspired us to add a lockout mechanism.
A flip lever makes it possible to completely lock the damper and gives you a hardtail-like feel. A pretty awesome feature if local trails are only accessible by gruelling fire road climbs.
