April Fool’s! – Pro-Line PowairStroke Shocks

Apr 01, 2013 No Comments by

Our friends over at Pro-Line released this teaser image of a new type of shock they are working on as they continue to innovate and expand their accessory line of performance products.  Here is what Pro-Line is telling us thus far:

This is a pair of Pro-Line PowairStroke Shocks. In close collaboration with some of the largest names in Supercross, Pro-Line has developed the next generation in RC Shock Technology: Pro-Line PowairStroke Shocks! These new Air Shocks rely solely on pressurized Air to provide damping/spring effect which eliminates the need for oil and springs. This allowed Pro-Line Engineers to reduce shock weight by 25%! Spring rates are completely adjustable by changing the pressure inside the shock through a simple sports ball air pump. Piston diameters have been increased to a huge 14mm and shock stiction has been reduced to basically zero micro-pounds. Look for the PowairStroke Shocks to be available for your favorite Short Course Truck or 1/8 Nitro Buggy very soon!

PowairStroke Shock Features:

  • Supercross inspired Air Shock Technology
  • All Super Aluma-alloy Construction for light as Air Weight
  • Effective Spring Rates completely adjustable by using different pressures
  • Radial close pitch cooling fins for lower shock temps
  • Super Big Bore 14mm Diameter Pistons to One-Up everyone else
  • Air Pump Not Included
