The damping characteristics of absorbers are generally adjusted via the elastomer spring. Key characteristics of the support spring, such as service life and the temperature sensitivity of the parameters, can be optimized independently of the damping characteristics.
The brake absorber is attached to the brake calipers and serves to reduce brake caliper vibrations, making it possible to minimize or entirely eliminate specific brake noise. The elastomer spring, which is highly resistant to temperature and aging, is manufactured from synthetic rubber (SBR/CR).
