THE EVOLUTION OF THE STEERING DAMPER


FORGET EVERYTHING YOU KNEW ABOUT STEERING STABILIZERS / DAMPERS

THE PARABOLIC CHANGED IT

MOUNTING

  • Does not mount in a dangerous position over the bars to cause injury to your chest or chin 
  • Does not raise your handlebars at all in most applications 
  • Can be used with: Stock, Shock & Vibe, BRP, and PHDS clamps in multiple positions 

  • Can be used with standard handlebars or Flexx Bars, no razed crossbar needed 

  • Allows you to run a bar pad for your protection and still adjust the damper with it on 
  • Fully greased and sealed linkage (no lubricating with dirt) wear adjustable linkage to ensure there is no slop in the steering

 

CONSTRUCTION

  • Compact, rugged construction
  • Has 20 numbered low speed positions with clicks and stops at both ends
  • Adjustable in a second with a bar pad on
  • Has 12 high speed positions with lobes and stops at both ends 



  • Automatically compensates for thermal expansion with a built in reservoir, greatly reduces fading 
  • Lever is attached by a tapered tri-lobe over 10x the contact area of a pin or a slot 
  • Single piece shaft and vane. No 3mm pin holding two parts together

THE DAMPING

  • Unique bell curve damping
  • Smooth transition from straight to turning
  • Slightly reduced damping on return to center
  • No sudden drop-offs on the sides
  • Slightly more damping in the center helps keep the back tire behind you
  • Better in the whoops
  • Better in breaking bumps
  • Better in slippery conditions
  • Better at reducing harmonics (headshake) 

FEATURES

  • Lightweight 
  • Complete unit can be under 1 pound
  • Easy to maintain
  • No expensive triple clamps or special mounts
  • Change the oil in minutes without opening the unit, using fill plugs
  • Easy install 
  • Move the damper portion to another bike in minutes


What will you notice when you ride:

  • High speed stability, greatly reduces high speed wobbles / head shake / death wobble
  • Reduced wheel chatter going into corners. 
  • The back end wants to stay behind you in the whoops, breaking bumps, and in muddy or slippery conditions
  • Reduced handlebars jerking when you cross rut, hit a rock, root, trees or other obstacles.
  • Rider can lighten up their grip reducing arm pump and  fatigue.
