KITFOX AIRCRAFT - EXTREME SHOCK PACKAGE
Nitrogen charged air shock assembly.
THIS PACKAGE INCLUDES 2 MAIN GEAR SHOCK ASSEMBLIES.
These struts are designed for a Kitfox with a Cub type gear leg and cabane vee or some other type of center mount point under the belly of the aircraft. If you have bungees that install to the bottom of the seat frames, you'll either need new gear legs or modify your existing legs.
Light weight but not light on performance. Our custom valved air shocks are designed for bush planes looking for the harshest landing zones this planet has to offer.
Our special shaft and piston design allows for the best compression ratio and most radical valving anyone has seen in aviation.
These shocks are aircraft aluminum with ever bit of weight savings and strength designed right in. Coming in at a staggering 15 lbs for the set of 2 including the shock frames, this is the shock that sets your aircraft apart from the rest.
No coil springs required.
Anodized aluminum shocks and nickel plated chromoly heat treated steel frames for incredible strength and beauty.
9 hole completely revalveable piston design.
Chromoly rod end bearings.
Dual seals and dual o-ring used to ensure proper sealing.
How does it work? Simple......we convert the tension motion that occurs during landing and turn that into a compression motion with the use of the frames. Then the shocks manage the force and rebound energy to keep you on the ground and in control.
These shocks are available in 2 diameters for the Kitfox:
If you have a Kitfox 1-5 with a light weight motor package and an empty weight of 700 lbs or less, you need the 1.75" shock package.
If you have a Kitfox 7 or a 1-5 with a heavier motor and empty weight of 800 lbs or more, you need the 2.0" shock package. Or if you have a 1-5 model and you pack it full of moose meat and enough camping gear for the summer, go with the bigger shocks.
The clevis ends are designed for an AN-6 bolt. This is the correct size bolt for the load these shocks can take. Your Kitfox likely has smaller bolts. You can either drill out your gear legs and cabane to use the larger AN-6 bolts or we will supply a reducer sleeve to your smaller bolts.
