¿Why do we use Nitrogen instead of air?

27 April, 2015

There are several advantages when we set the preload with Nitrogen:

– Nitrogen doesn’t expand like the air when affected to temperature changes. Your suspension system will not have different behavior depending on the fork temperature. On the long down hills the damping will stay constant from the beginning to the end.

– This is an inert gas. By removing the oxygen and humidity there is no corrosion within the internal components, extending the lifespan.

– Oxygen molecules contained in the air are 4 times smaller than the Nitrogen ones. By using Nitrogen there is less mass loss along the time which translates into keeping the initial preload settings much longer than with air.
