Shepherd have introduced the next evolution step of their successful Velox F1 platform. The Velox F1 2018 features a new battery mount system that utilises a new carbon fibre battery brace and upper plate that accommodates a rubber O-ring to secure the battery pack while also shifting the pack about 2.6mm towards the rear for increased traction and easier handling characteristics. To further improve the Velox Revolutionary Shock System the latest evolution of floating pistons is also included in the kit from now on. With the help of an additional O-ring the new floating piston completely prevents any possible tilt of the piston inside the shock absorber resulting in a fully leak-free and easy to adjust operation.
Other changes include the updated main shaft and right rear wheel hub. Both now are coming with an optimized shape for perfect fitting and more contact area of the diff pressure plates resulting in a much smoother running of the ball differential. Furthermore the larger diameter reduces the possibility of carpet fluff or dirt getting into the differential increasing its durability. The kit is available from now on in the standard Shepherd blue as well as a black edition.
