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


SINCE 2011,

Tractive is a process, not just a part.

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.
