RB's latest innovation comes in the form of the ADS which stands for 'Automatic Damping System'. This unique new shock concept is designed to offer a truly progressive shock dampening, rather than the conventional linear shock damping which we are mostly used to with conventional shock pistons and oils.
RB's ADS is basically a new internal sleeve which fits into your existing shocks, this sleeve is then machined with a gradual reduction towards the top which make the displacement of the oil harder the further the shock is compressed, hence making the shock action progressive. In order to make this work the RB ADS comes with solid machined tapered shock pistons without holes, rather than original one's which have multiple holes to displace the oil.
RB claim that with their ADS installed the shocks will have a broader range of operation which allows you not to have to compromise between softer damping for little ruts and bumps, and harder damping to allow the car to settle and land better off jumps.
