This is a special production OEM damper available to the public in limited release.

As the previous Storia models, V3-S offers the revolutionary LOK Technology that allows a complete compression separate lock-out system, now totally renewed with a new design and a more progressive damper circuit. In order to allow every rider to use a softer spring rate and increase bike traction and handling, EXT engineers have imported from the ARMA DH shock the hydraulic bottom out system named HBC (Hydraulic Bottom-out Control), capable to develop more than 50% of hydraulic force only on the last 15% of the stroke, allowing riders to avoid harsh bottom-out situations and provide a compliance and control throughout the entire range of travel.

STORIA V3-S is designed to serve those customers who want maximum performance of a pedal-platform equipped shock, with a great support on the last millimeters of bike rear travel, with the great performance of a coil-over shock.

This Unique Storia damper was designed as an OEM only option that contains some unique features not found in the standard V3, many of which a from the development of the e-Storia. These features include the following:

  • Chromoly shaft with low friction coating
  • Reservoir with bladder design for better low speed sensitivity
  • Dedicated spring platform to accommodate stiffer springs
  • Polymer spring bushings
  • Internal negative spring to avoid harsh top-out and improve bike platform stability
  • Lok 2.0
  • New rebound adjustment to increase tuning range
  • New compression valve design to increase adjustability range and provide more supple low speed characteristics.
  • New seal design to reduce friction
  • New main piston design with high flow to improve sensitivity and tunability

This shock is available in very limited OEM quantities and sizes.
