Legend Suspensions

Legend – high-performance front cartridge with “through shaft” technology

Sturgis, South Dakota based manufacturer Legend Suspensions unveiled a slew of new product at the recent Drag Specialties Dealer Expo at Indianapolis.
For use with the company’s Air-A or REVO-A shocks, the new AXEO39TS high-performance front cartridge “features a design that is like unlike any fork cartridge before,” according to owner Jesse Jurrens.

“AXEO39TS features two twin mono-tube damper cartridges, pre-load adjuster, performance spring rate and high flow damper piston and deflective discs – our ground breaking ‘through shaft’ technology.
“Precision load-rated wave springs allow spike over pressure to bypass, protecting precision valve opening limits. The through shaft eliminates rod pressure in/out. They provide 5” of travel, smooth and controlled ride quality, increased performance, eliminate bottoming out, front end dive, and reduce peg drag. Stability, cornering and traction are all much improved.”
For use with Air-A or REVO-A shocks, new AXEO21, AXEO23 and AXEO21KO high performance front cartridge kits are specifically for bikes with 21 or 23-inch wheels on bikes using Legend’s Air-A or REVO-A shocks.
These drop-in systems utilize 2 mono tube, dual chambered damper cartridges each featuring an advanced nitrogen gas charged chamber and internal floating piston and are engineered to retain hydraulic bump stop function, so there’s no hard bottoming.
The result is said to be increased traction, improved handling and eliminated front end dive, increasing performance, comfort and safety.
In terms of its shock absorbers, Legend now has its AXEO shocks for the 2018 Harley-Davidson Fat Bob.

The AXEO43 kits convert asymmetrical stock internals to a high-performance twin cartridge set. Easy to install, two high-performance mono tube, dual nitrogen gas charged chambered, suspension fluid filled, damper cartridges with floating piston, performance spring rate, internal linear spring guide and threaded pre-load adjuster.
They are said to eliminate front end dive and bottoming out for increased safety and control, so the rider enjoys a smooth, controlled ride with improved traction, cornering and stability.
