Vorsprung Secus Air Spring Kit (Forks only)
$450 for part alone, or $650 including a full Hyperformance Service and installation
The Vorsprung Secus air spring is the first air-sprung fork system that will give you a feeling truly comparable to that of a coil fork. Coil-sprung suspension has provided the benchmark for performance over recent years, but with the Secus you're able to match that performance without the added weight of a coil spring, and even maintain some of the positive characteristics expected from air suspension. The first 2/3rds of your travel will be supple, compliant, and linear, just like a coil fork, however, in that final third of the travel (where you need that added bit of security) you'll benefit from some natural progression that we expect from an air spring system. The end result is a system that will handle just about anything you can throw at it in the most controlled manner possible.

Vorsprung Smashpot Coil Conversion System (Forks only)
$469 for part alone, or $669 including a full Hyperformance Service and installation
If you don't mind the very small amount of added weight that comes with a coil spring the Vorsprung Smashpot coil conversion might be what you're looking for. Even with the newly released Vorsprung Secus air spring (see above) there are still benefits to a coil-sprung fork if you're chasing the absolute best performance. Some of these benefits include:

Vorsprung Tractive Valve Tuning System (RS Monarch Plus and RS Super Deluxe Air/Coil shocks only)
Installed in NSD workshop only - $380 including a full Hyperformance Service and installation
With over seven years in development the Vorsprung Tractive tuning system has a wealth of time, research and testing behind it. Teaming up with engineers from one of the worlds most advanced mathematical computing companies Vorsprung have created a one of a kind tuning system. Tunes are created based on your riding weight, bike, terrain and rider preferences. The Tractive tune will provide you with greater support, predictability, compliance, and traction over the standard factory tune found in your shock. You will also get more effective use out of your three position compression lever with evenly spaced settings. This upgrade is installed strictly in house only at NSDynamics as an ‘Elite Tuning Partner’ of Vorsprung Suspension.

Vorsprung Fractive Tuning System (Fox forks with FIT4 dampers only)
$130 for pre-configured part alone, or $325 including a full Hyperformance Service and installation
The Vorsprung Fractive Tune is designed for riders wanting to get the most out of their Fox fork running a Factory Series FIT4 damper. Similarly to the Vorsprung Tractive Tune for rear shocks, the Fractive Tune replaces your stock-standard compression piston assembly with one tailored to your riding weight, style, and preferences. In doing this your three position dial (on top of your righthand fork leg) is converted into a three position high speed compression (HSC) adjuster, and the effectiveness of your low speed compression (LSC) adjuster is improved greatly throughout its full range of adjustment. By providing this specific-to-rider internal tuning and further external adjustability Vorsprung have further improved the capabilities of the FIT4 damper and (with the Fractive upgrade) have made it arguably the best fork damper available.
Benefits of the Fractive Tune
- High performance compression piston for Fit4 dampers
- Vorsprung-exclusive Online Tune Calculator 'found here' to determine custom compression valving tailored to your preferences & requirements
- 3 position switch becomes true high speed compression (HSC) adjuster with little low-speed impact
- Low speed compression adjuster more usable than before - works in all HSC modes
- Support where you need it, compliance where you don't
- Allows for linear valving to improve support and adjustability without harshness
- Available for user-install
- Compatible with the Luftkappe air spring upgrade kits

Vorsprung Luftkappe Air Piston (Fox and Rockshox Forks only)
$100 - $125 for part alone (no tooling), or $295 - $320 including a full Hyperformance Service and installation
Using the knowledge gained from their ‘Corset’ air can Vorsprung have created the ‘Luftkappe’. This air piston upgrade increases the negative air volume in your fork providing greater small bump compliance, suppleness, and traction while maintaining (and even improving) the forks middle and end stroke support. For some first-hand details check out the 'Pinkbike Review'.

Rockshox DebonAir Spring (Rockshox forks only)
$75 for part alone, or $270 including a full Hyperformance Service and install
Keeping up with the trend of high volume negative air springs, the Rockshox DebonAir spring is an inexpensive upgrade to gain the associated benefits similar to our 'Soft Touch' or 'Vorsprung Luftkappe' upgrades. Most Rockshox forks after 2017 will already have this air spring installed, however, earlier models may be able to use this spring as an upgrade. DebonAir B1 (2018-2020) and DebonAir C1 (2021) air shafts are available.
Lightweight Steel Springs
Sprindex Adjustable Rate Coil Springs - $195ea
Cane Creek VALT Standard and Progressive Springs - $110 (Standard), $150 (Progressive)
SA Racing Springs - $195ea
In order to get the most out of your suspension it is crucial that you have the right spring rate for your rider weight and bike. SA Racing springs are of exceptionally high quality. Made from a light weight alloy and available in accurate 25lbs increments they have quickly become popular on the world cup race circuit. To ensure they are as light as possible the springs have a small free length, utilising a light ‘POM’ spacer to ensure contact with the preload collar. POM spacers to suit your shock included free with the purchase of a spring.
Although reconfigurations of your compression/rebound circuits are usually not needed, sometimes the stock-standard configurations just don't cut it. If you feel like your stock shock or fork isn't working quite as well as it should be NSDynamics may be able to offer custom valving for your suspension.
Please 'Contact Us' with your requests for more information, ensuring you include bike model, shock model, rider weight and a brief description of what you're currently experiencing, and what you're looking to achieve.
