As this is the first air shock from EXT, it is called the ARIA, “air” in Italian. It is completely saturated in novel technology and design approach. Though the EXT brand has become synonymous with unrivaled performance of coil shocks, our knowledge of air spring technology actually began with the William F1 active suspensions project a long time ago, developing products for the highest forms of racing.
EXT took the innovative dual-positive air chamber concept originally made for the Era fork and formatted a new version of it to fit the unique needs of the Aria application. From this groundwork we have created a shock featuring a noticeably improved air-spring, cable of reaching high levels of sensitivity and support currently only achievable with coil sprung shocks.

EXT has taken the concept of twin positive air from their Era fork and applied it to their new Aria shock, creating a huge range of spring curve adjustments without the need to mess with volume spacers. The Aria hydraulic system is based on the EXT E-Storia, featuring the same high-speed and low-speed compression and rebound circuits, firm lockout system, and adjustable hydraulic bottom-out controls. This combination of features makes the Aria one of the best available in air damping technology, offering improved performance and versatility.

Aria is not a conventional air damper, as it boasts many unique features:

-HS3 technology: the dual positive chamber with only 2 dynamic seals to
separate the 3 different chambers. EXT patented design
-Infinitely adjustable positive chamber with 2 different air valves
-Large self-activating negative volume chamber
-Unique air seal derived from aerospace design
-Lok 2-0 technology with 14 mm superlight shaft
-Large 28mm hydraulic main piston
-Adjustable HBC
-Proprietary unique super finish surface treatment
