The KONI Sport product line is one of our specialties. KONI serves sporting drivers with a carefully designed range of sport shock absorbers and suspension kits with lowering springs. This line focuses on exceptional road-holding and handling properties, combined with an acceptable level of comfort.
Its characteristics include responsive steering, improved body control and limited body movements when braking and accelerating, all resulting in a direct feel and excellent wheel-road contact.
KONI uses a variety of technologies: twin-tube low pressure gas-hydraulic dampers, twin-tube hydraulic dampers and mono-tube gas-hydraulic dampers. All these shock absorbers have typical properties which influence road behaviour of the car. The inappropriate use of pressurised shock absorbers may increase the ride-height which could affect the stability of the car and thus the safety. However, the handling of some cars may even improve by using these shock absorbers.
Therefore KONI does not simply supply pressurised shock absorbers for every type of car. Instead KONI chooses the technology which results in the best road holding, safety and comfort for each individual application.
