Optimal damping thanks to precise tuning. AL-KO octagon shock absorbers have overload protection and are characterised by the high quality seals and special oil. They are precisely optimised for a clearly defined weight range and significantly improve the driving characteristics of trailers and caravans. Trailer oscillations and "hopping" are reduced significantly.
For a long time drivers have been worried about trailer vibrations on uneven roads. Until now, conventional standard shock absorbers have barely delivered a noticeable improvement on driving safety. They are designed for a weight range that is too large (for expample 0 to 4.0t). Optimum damping was only achieved at medium trailer weights (2.0t). Damping in the lower weight range is excessive, causing trailer bumps and jolts, while the damping in the upper weight range is inadequate. AL-KO Octagon axle shock absorbers on the other hand improve the trailers drive characteristics and provide optimum damping - thanks to precise, weight based tuning.
