Slingshot has announced the availability of a BILSTEIN Shock accessory kit, composed of front and rear BILSTEIN coilover shock absorbers. The revolutionary 10-way adjustable BILSTEIN shocks can be retrofitted to all Slingshot models, including the original Slingshot and Slingshot SL from 2015 and the all-new 2018 lineup.
BILSTEIN shocks maintain the vehicle’s balance in every turn, greatly enhancing vehicle handling which allows for faster cornering. Efficient heat dissipation maintains optimal performance in all driving conditions, and full power is retained, even under extreme vehicle stress. BILSTEIN shock technology ensures that oil in the shock absorber is kept under pressure, preventing it from foaming when temperatures and loads increase.
“The introduction of BILSTEIN shocks further elevates the Slingshot driving experience, while adding to the premier offerings of factory accessories from Slingshot,” said Nate Secor, Slingshot Accessories Marketing Manager. “With improved balance, enhanced handling and faster cornering Slingshot drivers can push boundaries and take their driving experience to the edge.”
While the 2018 SLR LE comes standard with BILSTEIN shocks, any other 2018 model can be ordered with BILSTEIN shocks as a dealer-installed accessory.
