Revolutionise your riding with an air to spring fork conversion kit and revalve

Optimising a suspension setup for the off-road riders on an individual basis can be challenging, especially how riders vary so much in weight, riding style, preferences, and bike geometry. Therefore K-Tech have engineered the ORSS and ORVS; the optimal package giving you the most tuning options, the most refined ride and an unfair advantage on any track or trail.

The Off-Road Spring System or, ORSS replaces the standard air fork cartridge with a more sophisticated and conventional spring system. Replacing air for a spring comes with several benefits such as tunability; spring cartridges allow the rider to easily adjust preload for different terrain, riding styles and rider weights. Feedback from the ground is improved as the ORSS system offers a more linear force transfer, making the ride feel more consistent thus more predictable, this is especially beneficial in competitive situations. Performance from an air spring cartridge can be affected when the outside temperature or altitude expands or condenses air inside the fork, the ORSS kit avoids this issue by replacing the air volume with high quality oil that offers not only a consistent feel regardless of temperature, but a plusher sensation rolling over smaller bumps.

For the Enduro riders, switching to a K-Tech ORSS also provides a more comfortable ride over long distances; The ORSS is designed to rebound and compress equally, eliminating the need to fight the forces being transferred through the handlebars. K-Tech’s ORSS system does the leg work when it comes to harsh impacts that’s also reenforced with a hydraulic bottoming device which protects the rider on hard landings.

Combining this Spring Cartridge with a K-Tech Off-Road Valve System will further refine the feel by upgrading the damping element to the motorcycle suspension. The ORVS greatly reduces lag between compression and rebound strokes with a reconsidered oil flow rate that allows for smooth transitions and more effective reactions to uneven surfaces. The K-Tech ORVS refines the front end feel without the harshness whilst maximising tyre contact.

The conjunction of the K-Tech ORSS & ORVS is the ultimate combination for off-road motorcycle suspension and is backed by professional athletes globally.

“The ORVS & ORSS together just makes everything easier. With standard forks I find myself spending too much effort controlling the bike whereas now I can confidently throw my KTM into jumps, turns and burms with no nasty surprises through the bars”

Benefits to the ORSS & ORVS continue when it comes to maintenance as the ORSS has less parts and doesn’t require an air-tight seal to manage pressure and also doesn’t require specialist tools to fit.
