Frequency Selective Damping

Koni has designed a new shock absorber for Class A' motorhomes. According to product literature, these FSD shocks include a special valve that filters out annoying vibrations before they enter the coach.

The FSD shock absorber is the first shock that offers superior handling without compromising comfort. You can't find a better shock for your motorhome than FSD: KONI Frequency Selective Dampers. We have combined the benefits of performance and comfort into one shock absorber. FSD is firm for control over large bumps and corners, but soft for comfort over expansion joints and rough roads. While KONI is known to reduce bouncing in motorhomes, our FSD shocks include a special valve that filters out annoying vibrations before they enter the coach. The result is an incredibly smooth ride, with plenty of shock left to control pitching and swaying.

While most shock absorbers are velocity sensitive, these shocks are frequency sensitive. The FSD valve is open during high frequency inputs like expansion joints and rough roads to ensure a smooth ride. Once you start to roll and pitch over low frequency inputs such as overpasses and large bumps, the FSD valve closes and makes a linear increase in damping forces until your RV settles down.

Put simply: the FSD feature is a hydraulic amplifier that delays the build up of pressure. One could say that an extra tuning option has been created in order to get the best possible combination of handling and comfort. Since it is an integrated part of the hydraulic valve system inside the damper, no additional cables, sensors or any other electronic devices are needed to operate an FSD damper.

FSD is the simplest and most economic way to significantly improve the ride and driving characteristics of every RV. Certainly in comparison with costly systems which work on the basis of computer technology, complex electronics and sensors.

FSD has a suggested retail price that starts at $170 each. Check the Koni website to see if they have FSD for your application today.
