VB-FSD-SHOCK ABSORBERS NOW AVAILABLE FOR THE SPRINTER, CRAFTER, T5 AND T6

Placed on 21/03/2018

FSD stands for 'frequency selective damping'. With standard shock absorbers you usually have to make a choice between stability and comfort as these shock absorbers are not able to self-regulate. However, the addition of a special valve allows the shock absorber with FSD technology to vary its own damping force. This directly results in more comfortable driving characteristics, improved stability, more safety and less vibrations and background noise since unevenness in the road surface is not felt as distinctly in the vehicle.

Responding to different situations
In order to offer optimum comfort and maximum stability on an unpredictable and bumpy road surface, the suspension provided by the shock absorber needs to be softer, and so make the journey more comfortable.

For optimum vehicle behaviour on a sloping, winding road, the shock absorber needs to provide firmer suspension, and so make the ride sportier.

Standard shock absorbers only work well in one of these situations. The VB-FSD shock absorber can respond to both situations while in turn increasing safety.

Available for a variety of vehicles
After successfully launching VB-FSD shock absorbers for motorhomes at the Caravan Salon 2017, we have expanded our product range for these shock absorbers with kits for the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, the Volkswagen Crafter and the Volkswagen T5 and T6. See the table below to see which models we offer VB-FSD shock absorbers for.
