MTB fork seals are a vital protective part of the overall front suspension system, with a crucial impact on riding comfort and trouble-free operation in the harshest environments.
This completely redesigned fork seal — adding on to SKF’s well established fork seals range that has already been available on the market for more than 10 years — consists of newly developed rubber compounds and new geometries for both the scraper lip and the sealing lip.
The co-molded combination of compounds, together with improved sealing lip properties, offers enhanced followability on the shaft. In addition, there is a new metal insert and an open wound spring on the dirt scraper lip, effectively preventing the ingress of contaminants.
Benefits of the dual compound fork seals are:
- Extended sealing capability
- Improved contamination exclusion
- Reliable protection of the interior fork mechanism
- Minimum friction for enhanced vehicle control
