Advantages of LABA7 shock dynos


In the world of suspension, precision is key. Sometimes, a mere one-click adjustment can make the difference, ultimately determining the outcome of a race. That is why choosing the best shock dyno for your work means choosing the one that provides the most accurate data.

Our in-house data logger is equipped with military-grade technology, capable of reading up to 64 000 samples per second.

We optimized our shock dynos to reduce electrical noise, which in turn minimizes the need for digital processing and filtration of the data. As a result, the data obtained and provided to you is extremely close to the original signal.

Additionally, all LABA7 shock dynos feature a Scotch-Yoke mechanism. This design allows us to provide you with uninterpreted and accurate data.


The reliability of our equipment is greatly attributed to its simple yet sturdy architecture. Most of the components are overbuilt to last long.

To guarantee exceptional build quality, we assemble all LABA7 shock absorber dynos at our headquarters. Every unit undergoes rigorous testing and calibration before being shipped, ensuring that our customers receive flawless products.

Customer-driven perfection

At LABA7, we prioritize our customers and aim to maintain an ongoing relationship beyond the point of purchase. We welcome and value your feedback, which we use to continuously improve our machines. Once these features are tested and validated, we make them available to all our customers through regular updates.

Benefits of owning a shock dyno

Diagnose a faulty shock absorber or fork

A shock dyno can quickly diagnose issues with shock absorbers or forks within seconds. By examining the Force vs. Displacement graph, you can easily see what is happening with the damper during compression and rebound. Blocked oil passages, broken shims, cavitation due to a lack of gas pressure, and much more can all be quickly identified by analyzing the dyno graph.

Compare the performance

With our shock dyno’s comparison feature, you can easily visualize and analyze the changes you’ve made to your shock absorber or fork. Whether you’re comparing left versus right or front versus back dampers, or just comparing different settings on the damper, our dyno makes it easy to see the before and after effects of your work. This feature is also useful for showing customers the improvements you’ve made during servicing or tuning.

Navigate tuning and adjustment

To successfully tune a suspension, it is crucial to have accurate data and a clear understanding of what is happening with the shock absorber. By analyzing the graph curves and connecting them with rider feedback, you can make informed adjustments to fine-tune the suspension to the rider’s needs. This is where the shock dynamometer excels. By viewing and interpreting the graphs, you can easily see how your adjustments affect the performance of the shock absorber and how that translates to the track.

Quality control and warranty

Performing quality control before releasing products to customers is a critical step in ensuring customer satisfaction. By testing the damper on the dyno before returning it to the customer, you can check your work and eliminate any possibility of errors. This not only reduces the chances of unsatisfied customers, but it also helps you prove that all work was done correctly on your end in case of any warranty claims caused by customer damage.

How does a suspension dyno work?

A shock dyno machine mimics the forces and speeds that your dampers undergo during real-life usage. By displaying this information in easy-to-read graphs, the dyno allows for detecting and resolving any issues with your shocks. In other words, LABA7 testing equipment helps you diagnose and fix problems of your shocks by displaying their performance data in a user-friendly manner.

The testing process involves repeatedly moving the fork or shock up and down at a speed of your choosing, enabling you to make precise diagnoses and corrections. You can damper test your shocks at different speeds and visualize the information through live graphs of force vs velocity and force vs displacement.
