Explaining the terms:
TK = Turkey damping. If you happen to hit a big rock when you have your fork locked out, TurnKey's patented blow-off design takes the bullet for you, absorbing the unexpected hit instantly. Adjustable for rebound only and has an "on/off" lock out.
Solo Air is like a Buddhist monk. Its enlightened design lets you add air to your forks through a single Schrader valve, filling both the positive and negative air spring chambers simultaneously. So they're always in perfect equilibrium, like Yin and Yang. Giving you a plush, predictable ride you can set up in seconds, with the lightest weight air spring on the market.
This exclusive technology works a lot like the Secret Service. If you happen to hit a big rock when you have your fork locked out, TurnKey's patented blow-off design takes the bullet for you, absorbing the unexpected hit instantly. When you think about it, it's kind of noble. Compatible with both PushLoc and PopLoc remotes.
