SR Suntour Piston Compensator System (PCS) – What’s That Then?
We reviewed the SR Suntour Durolux fork over the course of a race season earlier this year and found it to be a great value-for-money option, more than capable of holding its own against the big boys from Fox and Rock Shox. Now you can get even more of an insight into the workings of this tidy looking fork with this handy vid.
“What does the Piston Compensator System (PCS) do?
“The main task of the PCS system is the reliable separation of oil and air in the damping cartridge. The slightly biased separation piston exerts constant pressure to the damping oil, thus preventing the formation of vacuum and vesicles.
The result is damping which remains constant and predictable and at the same time the cartridge can retrieve its full potential.”
