Vorsprung Tractive Valve Tuning System - Rockshox Monarch Plus & Super Deluxe Air/Coil
Simply put, the Tractive Tune is centred around Vorsprung's proprietary valving calculation software that achieves a customised damper characteristic based on rider weight, frame geometry, terrain and riding style, ensuring your shock works better for you.
Features and Benefits:
|• Improved support, compliance, traction.||• Tuned for each rider based on frame, weight, terrain, aggression and preference|
|• Superior stability and predictability||• Customised rebound valving to replace the stock rebound shim stack|
|• Nitrogen charged via low-profile reservoir end cap||• Upgraded compression base valve assembly with triple circuit technology|
|• 3-position compression adjuster with evenly spaced settings||• Internal alterations to reduce the typical knocking during direction changes|
|• Pressure-balanced valving to provide sensitivity and support||• Recommendations on spring pressure and volume spacer alterations if necessary.|
|• Low friction Acetal IFP to replace the stock metal IFP|
Tractive is a process, not just a part.
It has been evolving since it was started in 2011, with an ever growing database to analyse and summarise feedback over time. With Tractive, you directly benefit not just from Vorsprung's knowledge, but from the collective experience of all of our partners around the world.
Combining Vorsprung's own expertise and that which we bring to the table, working one-to-one with you, can be leveraged to get you the best out of your shock
Vorsprungs Elite Partner Tuning Centres around the world (of which we are one) have access to their proprietary, cloud-based Tractive Valve Tuning System calculation software. This software lets us observe the true response at the wheel when considering the rider's weight, the bike's leverage rate and the damper curve generated by a specific tune.
What others say - Reviews
"The Tractive tune takes an already great shock and really does improve it. For me on my bikes it has added suppleness off the top, more support and a smooth bottomless feel. What do you get when you add supple + supportive + smoothness = Fast and fun. I have had a few shocks tuned with the Tractive tune and it has definitely improved the performance of the bikes they have been on both climbing and of course descending. So a product that will improve your bike coupled with great service, you can't go wrong."
"For the past year I have been riding the Tractive tune. The contrast between what was my typical riding/tuning routine before and after has been pretty remarkable. After a couple of rides on the tune I added a small amount of LSC and sped up the rebound a little. That was the
last time I touched dials. This tune has allowed me to actually set it and forget, which is really saying something considering how I am constantly analyzing my suspension. Whether it’s hitting big jump lines or riding natural tech, the damping feels on point and I have never felt like there was something left to be desired. My impression is that this is due to the concept behind the tuning being sound as well as the process itself. All too often the process is simplified to the point where it can’t capture a specific rider’s preferences. There aren’t only three types of riders out there and this takes that into account."

Who is the Tractive Valve Tuning System for the Super Deluxe NOT suited for:
- Riders who already exceed the maximum rated air pressure of their shock. You need a different shock, sorry! However, a Super Deluxe Coil may be for you.
- Riders who want a firmer-than-stock lockout. The Tractive system offers a firm compression mode rather than a lockout for climbing traction, but if a near-rigid lockout is non-negotiable, look elsewhere. We don't firm up the lockout because it inhibits performance of the shock when unlocked.
- Riders who want to service their damper at home. The Tractive kit for Super Deluxe is not available for self-install or self-service as it requires both a vacuum bleeder and a nitrogen charging system to install.
Riders who are using the air version of the Super Deluxe on a frame that is excessively progressive or otherwise completely unsuited to air shocks. These will work better with a Super Deluxe coil shock.
