Officially presented at EICMA , the fork mud scraper Kit is an innovative solution developed specifically for the off-road market. It is designed to be positioned above the fork without the need to dismantle the wheel, due to an innovative design, the solution is applied to the fork and is closed by cotter pins.
It is a ready-to-use solution, so can be used according to conditions on the ground The fork mud scraper Kit prevents contamination from mud and the abrasion it causes, thus ensuring the performance of the fork and the operating conditions of the seal and at the same time, also ensuring the rider’s safety.
The fork mud scraper Kit has been developed entirely by SKF with laboratory and on track testing to achieve the fine tuning necessary for actual operating conditions and subsequent performance optimization.
The solution, mounted on the Kayaba PSF (Pneumatic Spring Fork) was used during the last round of the Enduro World Championship race in St. Flour in France by the Jolly Racing – Honda Racing EN team, winner of the E2 World Championship.
In addition to the innovative design, the fork mud scraper Kit uses the polyurethane material X-ECOPUR, an SKF proprietary material characterized by high abrasion resistance alongside an excellent smoothness.
The kit includes two fork mud scrapers, cotter pins for fastening and a handy instruction leaflet.
Thanks to its innovative features, the solution offers obvious and tangible advantages. “Given the ease of assembly/disassembly, it can be used only when really needed, such as when there is mud” says Paolo Giraudo, Global Business Development Two Wheeler SKF Sealing Solutions manager, “a feature that makes it particularly interesting for other segments, such as for example, MTB.”
