AirFX Air Suspensions - M-8 FXDR Softail Upgrade

Available through the collaboration between AirFX and Hawg Halters, Jeff Schwindt, founder of Indiana based AirFX, has developed a new performance AirFX air suspension mono shock for the 2019 M-8 FXDR Softail platform.

This new, patented mono shock features the proven "AirFX, No Air Bag Design" in a specifically engineered mono shock "that will deliver outstanding cornering control, while reducing troublesome road feedback," according to Jeff.
The AirFX mono shock features a dual piston design that increases the piston surface area, while reducing the air pressure and volume required to lift the bike. Each shock has two air chambers for lift and one for rebound in axial alignment. 

Robust spherical bearings are used in the upper and lower pivot points to minimize pivot friction. As always, this AirFX mono shock also allows for adjustable rebound control by adding air to the shock through its installed Schrader valve.
The AirFX mono shock is black hard coat anodized, has adjustable rebound control, is rebuildable if ever needed, offering a range of ride heights from stock to low. "The efficient low operating pressure system requires a smaller compressor than most and delivers great reliability with a very fast lift time."
"The AirFX mono shock delivers a smoother ride, with full suspension travel, increased handling performance, greater durability, while maintaining a shock body size equal to stock - no high pressure, just old fashioned high suspension performance and handling," says Jeff.
