Our system has been tested and proven in the most severe open water conditions possible and can withstand most anything you can throw at it. However, to ensure absolute safety and remove risk in the extremely unlikely event that a shock fails, SHOCKWAVE Seats provide three levels of bottoming protection.
[ LEVEL ONE ] Progressive Rate Air Spring
The spring rate increases as stroke increases. It is impossible to fully compress the air in the air spring at the end of the stroke. The spring rate ramps up to 3000lbs at full compression.
[ LEVEL TWO ] Rubber Bump Stop
Should there be the unlikely event of decompression the shock absorbers have a rubber bump stop internally that will prevent the suspension from bottoming.
[ LEVEL THREE ] Built-In Absorption Cushion
The cushion material is an energy absorbing foam developed for NASCAR seats, providing an extra level of protection. Along with roll bar padding and Rubber Bump Stop, our systems cover you three-fold in the unlikely occurrence of a failure.
*Please Note: SHOCKWAVE has sold thousands of FOX FLOAT H20 shocks. We have yet to have a report of sudden loss of air pressure. Any loss of air pressure reported has been slow and gradual and as a result of a slow fill valve leak.
