Title: PRESSURIZED TELESCOPIC FRONT FORK LEG, FRONT FORK AND VEHICLE
Abstract:
The invention relates to a telescopic fork leg for a front fork of a vehicle, comprising an outer tube and an inner tube being telescopically arranged relative each other, and a main piston arrangement arranged in the inner tube configured to regulate a damping fluid for damping movements between two parts of the vehicle when in use. Further, the telescopic fork leg comprises a pressurizing piston arranged in the inner tube and configured to pressurize the damping fluid, the pressurizing piston comprising an axial first end portion facing the main piston arrangement, and further comprising an axial opposite second end portion facing a pressurized volume. Further, the telescopic fork leg comprises a fluid reservoir for holding a pressurized fluid, the fluid reservoir being fluidly coupled to the pressurized volume. Further, the pressurizing piston is coaxially arranged with the main piston arrangement, inside the inner tube and the fluid reservoir is at least partly arranged on an outside of the inner tube. Also a front fork and a vehicle having fork legs according to above are claimed.
