KONI Sport Performance Shocks for 2016 Mazda MX-5: best handling roadster has got even better


    OUD-BEIJERLAND, The Netherlands, November 8th – The world’s bestselling and best handling affordable sports car just got better. KONI has launched a series of externally rebound adjustable KONI Sport performance shocks for the 2016 Mazda MX-5. Taking the nimble, fun and refined handling dynamics of Mazda’s new roadster to an even more advanced level.

    KONI Sport performance shock absorbers provide the Mazda MX-5 with a more tailored setting for sporty driving thanks to the adjustable rebound force. The Sport shocks give the sports car a better balanced suspension, with the original chassis featuring a softer front setting and a quite hard setting for the rear suspension. KONI Sport performance shocks offer the MX-5 improved body control with less body movement, and also a more direct steering response and feel. Thanks to the better balanced front and rear this can be experienced clearly when steering into corners, with a more refined feedback to the driver on what’s happening underneath them.

    KONI Sport performance shocks for the Mazda MX-5 are available to order at KONI’s official European distribution partners. An overview of local distribution partners – that also provide information on country-specific consumer prices – is available in the distributor locator.

    KONI Sport shocks
    KONl Sport struts and shocks are the industry leader in externally adjustable damping, establishing the ultimate user control. By easily adjusting between a soft comfortable ride setting to a more firm aggressive ride, KONI Sport transforms the ‘daily driver’ into the weekend track machine without hassle. With its very broad range of adjustability, KONI Sport is a great choice to upgrade a stock, original equipment (OE) suspension or when matched with lowered springs and other performance upgrades for better handling and a more aggressive look and road feel. KONI Sport carries a limited lifetime warranty as do most KONI products.
