K-tech Suspension achieves multiple podium successes at this year’s Isle of Man TT

Published for Kratos Motorsports on 12th June 2018

K-tech Suspension has taken its place on all three steps of the TT podium this year with riders Dean Harrison, Connor Cummins and Daley Mathison.

The performance motorcycle suspension manufacturer achieved four podium successes throughout the action-pack event, including in the Senior, Superbike, Supersport and TT Zero races.

The Isle of Man TT is the annual pinnacle of the road racing calendar and attracts thousands of motorcyclists to the island each year looking to soak up the atmosphere and witness the incredible speeds and rider skill achieved around the iconic 37.73 mile course.

Dean Harrison finished second in the first Supersport race, but also raced to victory and the top step of the podium in the second Supersport race, reaching speeds of 126.703mph with K-tech’s DDS front fork cartridge kit in his Silicone Engineering Kawasaki.

In the TT Zero class, Daley Mathison and the University of Nottingham team secured an impressive second place, reaching speeds of 119.294mph on the electric bike complete with K-tech’s superbike front forks and DDS Pro rear shock.

Also riding his way to a podium place was Manx-man Connor Cummins on his Padgett’s Racing Honda Fireblade, who enjoyed a second place in the first Superbike race and a well earned third placed podium in the highly anticipated Senior TT finale.

Throughout the TT, K-tech’s team of experienced race technicians have been assisting racers and teams across the different classes in the event, offering advice and suspension support from the dedicated race support truck in the TT paddock.

The K-tech race support team also raised over £1000 for Noble’s Hospital and the Isle of Man Air Ambulance from hosting two public Suspension Set-Up Clinics during race week, which saw over 150 local and visiting motorcycle riders benefit from improved bike handling and safety due to improved and correct suspension set up and advice.
