1K2 shock absorber
The 1K2 is a real “high-end” shock absorber for demanding street- and competition use with a wider adjustment range. The 1K2 is build using the finest materials. The housing is made from stainless steel. This guarantees wear and corrosion resistance, maximum strength and optimum cooling. Main difference to the 2K2 is the compression and rebound adjustment via a single knob.
The 1K2 damper is always chosen in the largest size possible for the most accurate damping control: normally a 45mm body with a 40mm piston and a 16mm piston rod. Mc. Pherson struts are normally converted from the standard 22mm piston rod to an upside-down system with a 40 or 45mm guidance tube for maximum stiffness and wheel guidance. This is especially important when the G-forces are higher than obtainable with the standard vehicle.
The 1K2 can optionally be equipped with the “Black Titan” coating on the guidance- and piston rod. This is a coating that cannot rust and is extreme hard and smooth. The friction is lowered with these piston rods, improving comfort, reducing oil temperatures, improving traction and extending life time under the severest conditions. The “Black Titan” is a luxury which - if you can afford it – is certainly recommended.
When there is sufficient room available, the 1K2 can be equipped with a “spring rate adjuster” which makes it possible to change the spring constant without removal of the struts/springs. See for more info the category products spring rate adjuster,
We take suspension serious. Therefore we offer for all applications bespoke settings on the spring rates, shim stacks and damping pistons, for each application from Lancia Delta HF integrale 8V to the Lancia Delta EVO:
Fast street / occasional trackday: An upgrade to the sportive side from the OEM equipment. Daily comfort, vibration and noise levels are just as important as handling.
Trackday / bumpy race circuit / Nordschleife: A suspension to race on both smooth and bumpy circuits. It is possible to ride to- and from the circuits. Ride height is enough to drive on public roads. Laptimes and handling are more important than comfort levels
Full-race / rally. Stiff suspension: Designed to work with slicks and rollcage fitted. Not useable on the street. Lap time optimized.
Please contact with your bespoke needs indicating:
- Type of Wheel and Tire setup
- Type of Tire used: Road, Semi or Full Slick
- Type of application: Road, Trackday, Hill Climb, Circuit, Rallye etc.
- Vehicle weight
All enquiries wellcome: firstname.lastname@example.org do not hesitate to contact us to discuss
your options and settings, we're more then happy to help.
Note: Top Mounts are sold separately
In special applications, if the physical room allows us, we can fit the “XL” version, upgrading the diameter from 45 to a huge 50 or even 52mm.
As standard the Struts are in zinc coated mild steel, select the stainless steel option if you live in harsh weather enviroments and use the car also in winter conditions
Black Titan is an development from military aircraft industry. Their engines must perform under the toughest conditions, they must function from +40°C up to -30°C. After they fitted their engines with Black Titan, the service interval was increased by 100%. Intrax decided that what is good for their airplane engines must be good for our shock absorbers. The Black Titan coating, which will be applied on the guidance- and piston rod, cannot rust and is extreme hard and smooth. The friction is lowered with these piston rods, reducing oil temperatures, improving traction and extending life time under the severest conditions.
ARC (Anti Roll Control)®
After years of development Intrax did it. They developed a unique way to drastically reduce unwanted roll (lateral and longitudinal). Your car will have the comfort and all the other benefits of driving with “soft” springs like extra grip and traction, until you take a corne or need to brake then ARC® will control ride height with the feel of a sport/race/rally setup. While driving over a curb, through a putt hole or over jumps the suspension will absorb them like driving with soft springs. At the same time ARC® will make sure that your suspension won’t during these conditions. So for the first time you can have the benefits of a soft spring set up without the disadvantages of too much body roll and/or collapsing suspension in putt holes, jumps, curbs.
Intrax is a Dutch manufacturer of high-end suspension technology with over 35 years experience at the highest levels in racing and in OEM applications such as Radical Cars. Intrax designs and produces shock absorbers, springs and suspension packages for Formula 1 cars, road cars and everything in between. In addition to an elaborate street- and competition program, Intrax also delivers “custom-made solutions”. Please inform at us what we can mean for you.
