Arnott Air Suspension

Arnott Air Suspension

Merritt Island, Florida based Arnott Air Suspension has released its new motorcycle-specific applications catalog featuring its "Ultimate Ride True Onboard" adjustable air suspension kits for the mono shock frame 2018 M-8 engined Softails and other H-D and Indian Motorcycle applications.

Arnott's 11th anniversary edition 2019 motorcycle catalog features more than 50 model- specific FOX shock and Goodyear bladder equipped "TruAir" air suspension kits for Harley and Indian models

Said to "provide exceptional ride quality" and "confident control and enhanced safety," Arnott's mono shock air spring replaces the horizontally mounted rear suspension of the Softail (and the exposed dual shocks of the Dyna they have replaced) with a single mono shock featuring a fully adjustable Ultimate Ride Series FOX mono shock and air spring that can be controlled with an on-board compressor and handlebar-mounted inflation switch.
Arnott says that at the core of this patent-pending system is a custom nitrogen-charged FOX shock absorber paired with a Goodyear air spring to ensure superior durability. The kit includes a "powerful compressor, air distribution valve, handlebar-mounted switch and everything needed for a fast and flawless installation."
The minimum length is 10.93 inches, with a 13.16 inch maximum length. Available in black or chrome, "each kit is custom-crafted and rigorously tested in Arnott's Florida manufacturing facility and backed by Arnott's limited lifetime warranty.
Arnott uses FOX Street Performance IFP gas-charged monotube shocks with an internal floating piston, tuned and optimized for a model-specific ride using FOX's proprietary high-flow, deflective disc, velocity-sensitive damping.
A 1.5 inch 6061-T6 aluminum hard body with a 1/2 inch low friction, super-finished hard chrome shaft and multi-ply Goodyear air bladder for height adjustability and air spring firmness is operated by a powerful compressor with application-specific mounting hardware, handlebar-mounted inflation control switch, featuring optional rebound control to enable the rider to adjust the shocks' internal damping.
Founded in 1989, Arnott holds multiple manufacturing credentials, including ISO 9001:2008 Management System Certification and the TÜV Rheinland Product Safety and Quality Certification. Arnott's products meet GOST ISO 9001-2011 Certification and the EurAsian Conformity (EAC) Mark for Arnott's Quality Management System.
