WP CONE VALVE FORK AND TRAX PDS SHOCK

Dirt Rider - - 2017 Ktm 250 Exc-f -

If you plan on rac­ing your EXC-F, WP of­fers its A-level kit sus­pen­sion through WP Fac­tory Ser­vices. The Cone Valve Spring fork ($3,549.99, in­clud­ing two op­tional spring rates, one in­stalled and one ex­tra) and Trax shock with preload ad­juster ($2,549.99, in­clud­ing two op­tional spring rates, one in­stalled and one ex­tra) of­fer in­creased per­for­mance to your do-it-all KTM EXC-F ma­chine. We tested the WP Cone Valve and Trax shock back to back with the stan­dard WP fork and shock, and the dif­fer­ence in per­for­mance and com­fort are quite shock­ing. With the stock sus­pen­sion you are ba­si­cally in a “small box” with min­i­mal room to grow as a rider. You progress or want to go faster, but the stock stuff can only take you so far. With the Cone Valve/ Trax combo, the “box” you are work­ing with is much larger. We were able to get more ag­gres­sive and hit stuff on the trail harder with WP’S A-level kit sus­pen­sion without blow­ing through the stroke on ei­ther end. The whole bike moves less over bumps, logs, and whoops and feels more planted to the ground, with in­creased trac­tion to the front and rear tires. If you’re look­ing for the fac­tory treat­ment on your new EXC, WP’S Cone Valve Spring fork and Trax shock will let you get from point A to point B faster and with more com­fort un­der­neath you. —Kris Keefer
