KONI shock absorbers have a reputation for high performance. In order to maintain that reputation, KONI relies on quality, both in  technology as well as manufacturing, to assure their dampers achieve and maintain their performance.
All through the manufacturing process the evidence of quality is found: produced from the finest materials, surfaces machined to the narrowest tolerances, strict quality-control standards incorporated in all production steps and a 100% dyno-test at the end of the production line to assure that every single damper delivers its optimum performance.

KONI racing shocks provide you
• Better driver feel
• Wide range of adjustment
• Accurate valve adjustment mechanism, not using an inaccurate needle system
• Excellent reliability and repeatability
• More stability
• Excellent low-speed damping *
• Customer-serviceable
• Better value than the competition
• More control over bumps
• Low friction and weight *


* especially applicable for the 2612 and 2812 Series dampers



2812 Series

Mono tube low speed damper

The design and operation of the 28 series racing damper is a unique proof of KONI’s reputation as the leader in the field of damper technology.

They are specifically designed for competition purposes and offer full adjustability while fitted on the car. Their precision adjustment mechanisms allow maximum control over the damping forces generated, especially in the low speed damping range.

To achieve this, the 2812 series do not rely on the commonly used needle valves. Instead, a superior and advanced adjustment cartridge controls the opening and closing of valve loaded ports. Positive lock detents assure that each port can only be either open or closed. The result is that the cartridge will always accurately reproduce a set of eight pre-programmed damping curves.

Various cartridges are available, each with its own set of characteristics. A pair of cartridges is housed in the main piston, one for bump, one for rebound. Together they can modify any given basic valving in 64 different ways. By having all forces generated by the piston assembly, the control of the damper over the suspension is instant and precise, decisive and smooth.

A separate bulky reservoir is not needed and the installation can be kept simple, compact, lightweight and clean.

Drivers like the 28 series because they feel a real difference between adjustment steps. Mechanics and race engineers appreciate the user friendliness and apparent "simplicity" of the dampers that make them so easy to work with. And Buyers like their price / quality ratio.

Long body series

Commitments to continuously improve the motorsport products have resulted in the next level of products. Hence KONI developed the 2812 Long Body series race damper. They are an extension to the 2812 Series, having a range of strokes from 114 up to 224 mm.

The 2812 Long Body is designed with an aluminium body and end cap. Both top mountings and lower mountings are designed to fit 1/2" ID bearings. Two top mounts are available, with the difference being the adjustment window position at 0° or 90°.

2612 Series

Low weight and low friction

Commitments to continuously improve in motorsport products, have resulted in the next level in the KONI range. Requirements from top teams asked for a compact design to improve in weight, aerodynamics and also friction. Consequently the 2612 Series were brought to light.

The 2612 series are based on the proven technology of the 2812 two-way adjustable damper, being used by many race teams over the last decade. The major difference with the 2812 is the smaller diameter and the low friction parts being the standard feature.

They have stroke ranges from 29 to 109 mm.

The design and operation of the 2612 series racing damper is again a unique proof of KONI’s reputation as the leader in the field of damper technology.

They are specifically designed for competition purposes and offer full adjustability while fitted on the car. Their precision adjustment mechanisms allow maximum control over the damping forces generated, especially in the low speed damping range.

To achieve this, the 2612 series do not rely on the commonly used needle valves. Instead, a superior and advanced adjustment cartridge controls the opening and closing of valve loaded ports.

A separate bulky reservoir is not needed and the installation can be kept simple, compact, lightweight and clean.

Besides being developed and used in the Formula 3 Euro Series, the 2612 is standard equipped on the N.T. Formula S2000 series.
