Polestar 2 gets Monroe suspension technology

RideRefine RC1 add-on valves use frequency-dependent damping to reduce high frequency wheel motions

Polestar’s new all-electric performance fastback, the Polestar 2, was recently named Belgium’s Best Car for 2020 in the large electric category by AutoGids and Le Moniteur Automobile.

Adding to the local appeal of this recognition, the car is ‪‬equipped with passive shock absorbers featuring innovative Monroe RideRefine RC1 valves, which are designed and piloted in St. Truiden, Belgium, and are part of DRiV’s Monroe OE Solutions portfolio.

Rudi Schurmans, executive director ride control at DRiV, said: “The Polestar 2 is one of the most exciting new electric vehicles on the market and is more than deserving of this high praise from AutoGids and Le Moniteur Automobile.

“We’re proud that our innovative damping technology, including Belgian designed RC1 valves, are part of the package, giving drivers unsurpassed comfort and control.”

Precisely tuned RideRefine RC1 add-on valves utilize frequency-dependent damping to reduce the high frequency wheel motions common on rough roads.

They enable the dampers’ main valves to increase road contact and handling through consistent, firm damping of low-frequency wheel motions, resulting in a more balanced, refined and agile driving experience.
