Shock Absorber / Bicycle

Shock Absorber
Shock Absorber

Good damping capability and traction friction are essential for a trekking, which can be realized by combining tire, shock absorber for front tire and shock absorber at the middle of the body traditionally. But this is quite different for this new type of trekking. Its tire is designed to be composed of spring modular. The tire works normally in good road condition without deformation. And when it runs on hilly ground, the tire would be deformed because the pressure is concentrate into a focus. Deformation of the spring module absorbs a large part of bumping energy and makes the tire touch with ground in a larger area.
