“This idea really struck me! I like it for its simplicity.
I am convinced that it could be very useful for motocross as well.”
JAN WITTEVEEN, Motocross magazine
“A brilliant idea that I would call super-elastic:
simple, but very effective in improving comfort and stability of the bike.”
ENRICO PEZZI, Marzocchi T.D.
“Suspension setup will never be again a compromise
between stability, riding quality and comfort.”
PIERLUIGI MARCONI, former Benelli T.D.
AirTender® is an innovative suspension patented by Umbria Kinetics, which takes advantage of the characteristics of air.
AirTender® is the only system able to guarantee the maximum level of comfort and the highest level of performance in any situation, so to make the riding experience even more exciting and safe.
Unlike the traditional systems, AirTender® is NOT a suspension. It does not have an effect only on the hydraulics but directly on the elastic component of the damper: the spring, which is the element that actually supports the loads on the vehicle and determines its dynamic features.
AirTender® substitues the original spring with a stiffer and shorter one that is combined with an air system. This allows at the same time more control and stability when riding as well as more softness on rough road surfaces.
Another innovation made possible by AirTender is the possibility to adjust the spring stiffness according to the load, the conditions of the street and the riding style.
AirTender® can be installed on any original or after market suspension (including the ESA system). However, the best results are delivered when combined with dampers by Umbria Kinetics for the kit AirTender® PLUS.
