Xray 4-Hole Composite Shock Pistons

Xray 4-Hole Composite Shock Pistons

Xray have released details of their new 4-hole large-bore shock pistons which have been designed specifically for use with the wider XRAY shock absorbers, that are sold for the XT8 and XB8 EC. The newly-redesigned pistons use a new production process to improve roundness, ensuring perfect piston movement in all four shocks and each of the pistons have four straight holes, in sizes of 1.3mm 1.4mm and 1.5mm, in every set. The 4-hole pistons with the same hole diameter have increased oil flow compared to pistons with fewer holes (for example, 2-hole pistons). This allows the use of thicker shock oil, which will allow for different damping characteristics.
