The Carbon Spring technology can save you up to 70% of the weight of a steel spring

Abssac is constantly working on next generation product platforms and a classic example of this is the Carbon Spring Technology from Hyperco. The Carbon Spring works as a system to offer unparallelled control of your spring set-up. A Carbon Spring stack stores energy by bending. This bending action replaces the friction generating tilt of a coil spring. Delivering squareness under load, the Carbon Spring technology saves you unavoidable side load and reduces overall friction associated with coil spring’s.
Its all about the......Weight.
Take weight out of your current spring system!  The Carbon Spring technology can save you up to 70% of the weight of a steel spring while improving the dynamic response with its
reduced mass. Unique tunable spring rate The Carbon Spring technology gives you the flexibility to adjust your spring rate in any increment. The great thing about building a single spring from many small elements is the ability to alter just one element and affect a very small change on the assembly. Or, swap out many components and see a large change. In this way, a Carbon Spring stack can be tuned in very small or large increments. This tune-ability of rate, along with free length and displacement offers unprecedented flexibility in making spring rate decisions. 
Cost Advantage vs Titanium 
Titanium springs oft en have a high cost per rate! Utilising a stock of Carbon Spring elements from which to build your required stack and rates, Hyperco Carbon Spring technology can save you money.
