At 260 mm of wheel travel, the new WP PDS XPlor shock absorber is a perfect match for the new WP XPlor 43 fork, while saving 430 g of weight over the previous component. The proven and successful PDS rear suspension design (progressive damping system) has become something of a KTM trademark. On the WP PDS XPlor, the progressive damping is achieved by a second damping piston that uses a closed cup towards the end of the stroke, providing increased resistance against bottoming out. This design contributes to optimized progression of the complete rear suspension system, supported by a progressive spring. The suspension is adjustable in compression, rebound, and even offers separate high and low speed compression adjustment. Seat height can be lowered by 25 mm using an optional kit available through the KTM PowerParts program.
