The Old Man Emu BP-51 Shock Absorbers (Bypass-51, 51 mm internal diameter) offer revolutionary patented technology that provides unrivaled comfort and handling for your off-road vehicle, both on the highway and off-road.
These powerful shock absorbers, designed and tested in the most severe conditions of the Australian off-road, are equipped with a rigidity control system and remote tanks. They are designed for easy installation on a car, without making modifications to their own units and parts, and combine increased comfort when driving on the highway and excellent control and handling of the off-road vehicle.
Features of compression and rebound of shock absorbers BP-51 are regulated in the widest range, independently of each other. This gives you the ability to fine-tune the performance of the suspension, depending on road conditions, the weight of the load carried and the characteristics of your SUV.
The shock absorber body, remote cylinder and all parts are made of 6061 T6 aluminum and are covered with a solid anodized coating, 40 microns thick, which provides excellent dissipation of excess heat, resistance to corrosion and mechanical damage.
All BP-51 shock absorbers are not only designed, designed and tested by Old Man Emu engineers, but they are manufactured exclusively at ARB's own plant. To achieve this, ARB has invested heavily in the purchase of state-of-the-art machines and anodizing equipment. This allowed the company to achieve full control over the production process and ensure the highest quality products.
Design and development:
OME engineers had a difficult task - to develop a high-performance shock absorber for modern SUVs. Nowadays, more and more manufacturers are installing an independent front suspension for their SUVs, which further complicates the task, as this limits the shock absorber's travel and places restrictions on your capabilities within the design of the spring rack.
Traditional shock absorbers change their characteristics depending on the speed of movement of the rod. For such shock absorbers to achieve a high level of controllability and a balance between comfort and the possibility of adjustments is a very nontrivial task, requiring much time and effort. To achieve the correct balance, you need to make a lot of adjustments to the initial settings of the valve mechanism. And in the end you will still get some kind of compromise solution - either slightly harsh, for better handling and patency, or slightly soft, oriented to greater comfort.
The technology of bypass valves allows you to bypass some of these limitations, but puts a new obstacle in front of engineers and developers - traditional products with a lot of bypass valves simply do not fit inside the spring strut that is used in the independent front suspension. Also, they do not fit into the standard housing of a lot of rear shock absorbers.
Other problems encountered by OME engineers are corrosion, dispersal of excess heat, and the possibility of custom customizing the damper, depending on the weight of the car or the characteristics of the road surface. The product also needed to be made easy to install and not requiring modifications to the original suspension.
Ultimately, after four years of design, development and testing, OME engineers have been able to solve all of these challenging tasks and create shock absorbers BP-51.
