Explained: Fox Live Valve And Bottom-Out Control

Shocks are everything in a vehicle. Where it is in a Trophy Truck, Jeep, or UTV, the shocks play a vital role in the comfort of the ride in the dirt. Fox Racing Shocks recently explained what goes into their live valve and bottom-out control.

The Live Valve technology brings intelligent, electronically controlled damping to high-performance off-road vehicles. By combining a fast, semi-active valve with a patented damping architecture, Live Valve can instantaneously adapt to any terrain by adjusting compression damping in real-time based on driver input and sensors tied to the vehicles computer to maximize comfort, handling, and bottom-out resistance.

One example of where this technology is seen is the Dynamix edition Polaris RZRs. With the push of a button, the ride comfort can be changed. This allows for more user control depending on the terrain type.
