PUSH Elevensix SS Coil Shock and ACS-3 Kit Explained


The kings of coil had their new Elevensix SS shock on display at Eurobike today. The new configuration is not meant to replace the standard Elevensix shock, but is intended to be compatible with the new Santa Cruz Nomad 4 and Trek Slash frames, as well as a few 2019 models from other brands that we can't talk about yet.  Both shocks share the same internals and PUSH's signature two-shocks-in-one design that allows riders to toggle quickly between two independently tuned damping circuits with the flip of a lever.  PUSH continues to design, source, and manufacture all of their products in the US and everything they sell is hand assembled at their headquarters in Loveland, Colorado.

In addition to their shocks, PUSH also produces the Advanced Coil System (ACS-3) coil-spring kits for Rockshox Lyrik, Pike, and Yari forks, as well as the FOX 36. While the ACS-3 takes out the air damper and puts in the coil,  the system also includes a patent-pending adjustable air spring bump stop.  The dual-chamber air spring automatically regulates between both positive an negative chambers for a seamless transition as the fork reaches the later stages of travel.  By increasing or decreasing the amount of air pressure, riders are able to fine-tune the amount of bottom-out resistance and ramp-up in a way that would not be capable with a coil spring alone.  PUSH's goal is to provide the small-bump sensitivity and reduced friction performance of a coil fork while maintaining the advantages of an air fork's more progressive spring curve.
