Compression Damping Electronic Valve


Have you ever dreamed of a suspension for your vehicle that is perfectly tuned for every situation? Suspension that doesn’t involve stopping, getting out of the vehicle, manually making adjustments, and then hoping whatever change you made is correct for the terrain ahead? Starting now, that dream has become a reality. The future is here. The future is NOW.

ICON Vehicle Dynamics is extremely proud to introduce the all-new Compression Damping Electronic Valve (CDEV) powered by ICON Intelligent Control (IIC). The combination of IIC and CDEV allow for automatic, instantaneous adjustments to the shock’s damping to provide the absolute best setting for any given situation.

Intelligent control. Infinite possibility.

ICON Intelligent Control is the computer that monitors, analyzes, and processes data in real- time. Information from the on-board G-force sensor and Gyroscope perform calculations based on algorithms and user-defined settings to predict terrain and wheel position. IIC has the capability to collect information at over 1000 times per second, process the data and make adjustments, then deliver those changes to CDEV in under 40 milliseconds. IIC also works as a data driver to connect the user to ICON’s proprietary mobile App interface for monitoring and adjusting shock settings.


Compression Damping Control - Electrified.

CDEV is an electronically controlled valve that meters the flow of oil to regulate the amount of damping force that is created by the shock when compressed. This infinitely variable valve can react in less than 40ms and has the ability to make extremely precise adjustments for varying terrain. CDEV’s hydraulic circuits are also custom tailored per application to create the highest resolution and dynamic range allowable for each specific vehicle.

An ICONic interface.

The IIC App brings all of this technology together by offering a user-friendly interface to monitor, record, and adjust the system’s performance via Bluetooth connection. Users can easily alter the shocks’ baseline settings for firmness, as well as adjust the sensitivity of vertical “G-Boost” and lateral “Corner Boost” with a few simple taps from their favorite iOS device. The App includes several pre-configured ‘Drive Modes’ (Normal, Desert, and Haul) but also offers the ability for users to create an unlimited number of unique presets using their own custom settings. To top it all off, you can record data from your trip including time, speed, distance, and G-Forces for your very own ICONIC Overview.


What does all of this mean?

The beauty of the IIC and CDEV system is the fact that it seamlessly adjusts all of the shocks to their ideal setting for any given terrain or driving style without ever having to take your eyes off of the road or trail. For example, if you’re blasting down a high-speed washboard road and suddenly come across a larger obstacle, the system will automatically increase shock damping to help absorb the impact. Conversely, if you’ve just completed a fast, rough section of trail and things start to slow down, the system will reduce shock damping to provide a compliant and comfortable ride. Whether it’s hardcore off-road performance, smooth on-road comfort, or anywhere in between, IIC and CDEV have you covered for every situation.
