  1. Hyperco Carbon-Composite “Bellows Spring” “The Game Changer!” Patent Pending

  2. HypercoCarbon-Composite “Bellows Springs”

  3. Replaces Traditional Steel Springs

  4. Track Tested and Proven a Winner

  5. Substantial Weight Reduction! Density of Materials: • 1. Steel ……………………… 0.284 lb./cu. in. • 2. Titanium…………………. 0.163 lb./cu. in. • 3. Carbon Composite…….. 0.048 lb./cu. in. Note: “Real World” Weight comparison of “Bellows Springs” to steel and titanium: - Approximately 66% lighter than steel! - Approximately 50% lighter than Titanium !

  6. Minimal “Side-Loading” of Damper Shaft and Seal • 1. No “Torsional Twist” of material reduces “side- loading” of damper shaft and seal. • 2. Reduced wear of damper seals and shaft increases damper life. • 3. Quicker damper response means more “grip” between the tire and track; especially when traction is marginal.

  7. “Tunable/Configurable” for Rate/Deflection: Adding elements in “series” increases deflection and reduces rate! 12 elements in a “Series-Stack” 16 elements in a “Series-Stack”

  8. Tunable for Rate/Deflection: Adding an element in “parallel” increases rate while keeping the same deflection! Adding elements in “parallel” increases rate Note top assembly has two elements in series and one in parallel.

  9. “Spring-Action” plus “Bump-Stop Action” in one package • “Bellows Spring” concept evolved from a Carbon Fiber “bump-stop” program developed for the highest echelon of North American racing. • “Spring-Action” provided through “usable deflection.” • “Bump-Stop Action” provided in deflection beyond “usable deflection” to “total deflection.”

  10. Pro-Stock 246#/in spring: 30-element “series stack”

  11. 250#/in spring: 30-element “Series-stack” + 1 “Parallel element”

  12. 256#/in spring: 30-element “Series-stack” + 2 “Parallel elements”

  13. 228#/in spring; 32-element “Series-stack”

  14. 231#/in spring; 32-element “Series-stack” + 1 “Parallel element”

  15. 235#/in spring; 32-element “Series-stack” + 2 “Parallel elements
