What is Monroe(r) Quick-Strut?
One of our newest products, the Monroe(r) Quick-Strut assembly provides installerswith a ready-to-install replacement strut. Besides saving time, the Quick-Strut features vehicle manufacturers' specifications for each model's ride and handling profile. Monroe(r) Quick-Strut units are fully assembled and include ALL the components required for strut replacement.
Discover now the all-in-one replacement suspension system of Monroe(r):
* Safer
* Quicker
* Cheaper
The professional's choice !
Monroe(r) Quick-Strut, an innovative new concept for suspension systems, is now introduced in Europe.
Monroe(r) Quick-Strut offers the complete suspension module with all its related components - shock absorber, coil spring, all upper mounting parts like the "Mounting Kit", "Protection Kit", , retainer and spacers. Installing new shock absorbers on a car when the springs are worn-out and bearings are seized, does not offer the best safety guarantee. Installing new shock absorbers under such conditions can create abnormal stress and strain which has the potential to accelerate aging. As a result, the vehicle's safety can be compromised due to decrease of the braking performance and premature tyre wear. The Monroe(r) Quick-Strut solution helps to increase the safety of the vehicle because it replaces all the worn-out suspension components at once.

Shock Absorbers By Monroes

Shock Absorbers By Monroes

Loading...
For more than 90 years, Tenneco's shock absorber brand Monroe(r) has been one of the most recognized premier ride control brands. Our shock absorbers provide vehicle safety and comfort, and have consistently led the industry with innovative product development. For example, in 1999, Monroe(r) introduced its premium ReflexTM shock absorber with its unique valving system. Monroe(r) ReflexTM maintains superior tire-to-road contact while improving vehicle handling and safety. In 2005, Monroe(r) introduced its Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension, a semi-active suspension system that achieves the optimal balance between comfort and handling. It continuously adjusts damping levels according to road conditions, vehicle dynamics - including speed and steering manoeuvres - and driver's input. Developed by Tenneco engineers in Europe, in conjunction with Öhlins Racing, Monroe(r) Continuously Controlled Electronic Suspension delivers comfort without sacrificing the safety of sure handling.

MONROE(r)ORIGINAL

Loading...
* The Monroe(r) Original range offers you a high quality shock absorber produced in the same plants and using the same technology as those mounted on your car as original equipment.

* Monroe(r) Original shock absorbers are specially designed for the replacement market to compensate for wear in the suspension and other components, which occurs normally in a car after having covered thousands of kilometres

MONROE(r)REFLEX

Loading...
* After years of research and the hard work of our engineers, Monroe(r) Reflex sets the standards for safety in today's demanding market.
* Monroe(r) Reflex(tm) shock absorbers increase tyre-to-road holding, producing a ride which offers more stability and more safety.
* The secret of the Monroe(r) Reflex(tm) shock absorbers lies in its unique piston valving system, known as "Twin Disc" technology. This valve has an extra tuning stage for very low piston speed, resulting in a faster reacting shock absorber as it controls even the slightest vehicle body motions long before any standard shock absorber. Because of this specific feature, Monroe(r) Reflex(tm) shock absorbers are being sold in Twin packs;
Benefits:
* Stabilises the car faster by responding instantly to the smallest motion
* Provides more stability, as proven by independent tests
* Helps to control roll and oversteer
* Long life design
To prove the advantages of the Monroe(r) Reflex(tm) shock absorbers, tests were carried out by an independent testing organisation:
1. Oversteering and stability-> Abrupt Lane Change Manoeuver or VDA Test.
* This test simulates the avoidance of a sudden obstacle at a constant speed of 60km/h without braking. During the avoidance manoeuver, there is a period of instability which occurs when entering the left lane. At this moment, a weight transfer occurs that makes the rear end of the car slide (a.k.a. oversteering).
* This slide or oversteer can be measured as a drift angle of the actual path the vehicle followed, compared to the ideal path it should follow to ensure optimal safety and stability.
* The results after comprehensive testing show that there is on average 15 times more drift with standard shock absorbers than there is with Monroe(r) Reflex(tm) shock absorbers.
* This important difference in performance can be the key to avoiding dangerous situations and vehicle instability. The following graphics clearly show the performance improvement generated by the Monroe Reflex(tm) shock.
2. Roll Control-> Constant Curve Test.
* This test involves driving a vehicle at a constant speed of 70km/h around a circle with a 50 metre radius. The test highlights the stability of the car and measures the roll around the car's horizontal axis. Excessive roll can cause instability and should be dampened by the shock absorbers.
* The tests showed that the Monroe(r) Reflex(tm) shock absorbers improved driver safety by an average of 44% compared to standard shock absorbers.
* The following graphics show the difference in vehicle stability when comparing the Monroe(r) Reflex(tm) shock absorbers to standard shock absorbers.
* The Monroe(r) Reflex(tm) shock absorbers increase tyre roadholding, providing a ride which offers more stability and more safety.
