WP | AER 48 Cone Valve Fork

New Technology From WP Suspension

image002

The AER 48 Cone Valve Fork combines two of WP's greatest technologies: The Cone Valve damping system and the AER spring system. This fork with split technology has been developed in close collaboration with current World Championship riders of aboard many different motorcycle brands. The Cone Valve damping leg is an evolution of the traditional cone valve fork with damping optimized for use in combination with an AER spring leg. The AER spring leg was developed with the highest possible performance, nearly unlimited possible setups and easiest possible handling in mind.

It is available for all 2016 & 2017 KTM SX / XC models and for all 2017 Husqvarna MX & CC (cross country) models.

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION:
The AER 48 Cone Valve Fork combines two of WP's greatest technologies: The Cone Valve damping system and the AER spring system. This fork with split technology has been developed in close collaboration with current World Championship riders of aboard many different motorcycle brands. The Cone Valve damping leg is an evolution of the traditional cone valve fork with damping optimized for use in combination with an AER spring leg. The AER spring leg was developed with the highest possible performance, nearly unlimited possible setups and easiest possible handling in mind.
The WP Motorsports Cone Valve technology permits almost limitless damping performance due to a unique valving system. The setup of a conventional damping system has always been a compromise between sufficient comfort and bottoming resistance, whereas the Cone Valve technology now permits a combination of both factors, resulting in outstanding damping behavior in all riding situations.
The AER spring allows the rider to setup the fork for his individual requirements and for individual tracks without changing any internals. Two chambers that can be setup individually, allowing the rider to improve the comfort throughout the entire stroke in combination with great initial response. The bikes riding balance can be changed independently of the bottoming resistance . Also, the AER technology saves up to >1kg compared to other competition forks.

AVAILABILITY:
The WP AER 48 Cone Valve Fork comes with a thoroughly developed setup for the different KTM SX Models. Furthermore, an optional tuning kit allows the authorized WP distributor to fine tune the damping of the fork to the rider's needs. Spring response and setup can easily be setup at the track with help of the pump included with the fork.

BENEFITS OF AER 48 CONE VALVE FORK:
– Cone Valve technology combined with AER technology
– Optimal options for AER Spring setup for initial response due to two separate chambers
– Improved riding balance with higher bottoming resistance
– Allows for customized setup and improved comfort throughout the stroke
– Reduced weight compared to comparable competition material
– Increased comfort when using more aggressive set-ups
– Reduced sealing surface means minimum drop of pressure after valve opens
– Unlimited opening up of WP Cone Valve system means reduced harshness
– Cone Valve system reduces the amount of shims, which limits the possibility of bent shims over time.
– All adjustments made externally
– High Quality coating
– AER technology saves up to 1 Kg compared to conventional competition forks

HOW TO INSTALL:
WP AER 48 Cone Valve Forks replace the original forks. They are designed to fit in the original triple clamp and to be used with the original axle. The fork can also be reused for other bikes of the same type.

These forks can be fine-tuned in two different ways:

  • Damping: An optional tuning kit allows any authorized WP Distributor to easily adjust the damping behavior of the fork to the rider's individual requirements
  • Two chambers that can be pressurized individually through external valves allowing individual setups for the rider's and the track's requirements

Additionally, external adjusters on the damping leg allow:

  • Adjustable Compression Damping
  • Adjustable Rebound Damping

WP AER 48 Cone Valve Forks are tested and designed to offer the highest performance in combination with the WP TRAX shock absorbers. Considering the great range of setups that this fork allows, it can often times be used across a range of disciplines such as MX, Cross Country and Enduro.
