Husqvarna introduced a new chassis for the 2019 models that included a stiffer frame, more rigid upper triple clamp, and revised suspension settings. While it was good, it lacked some rider comfort. After a few days of riding the standard FC 450 and working on the settings, we felt like the bike would really benefit from some updated internal suspension changes. WP took test riders’ feedback and came out with new settings for the Xact air fork and Xact shock. The fork is paired with a new billet triple clamp that, according to Husqvarna, features optimally tuned steering stem stiffness, perfect alignment of the fork tubes, and precise geometry of the fork clamping with no distortion of the outer tube. These triple clamps are designed to provide smoother fork action and improve responsiveness.
