A unique technical solution. The Institute of Transport and the Department of Applied Mechanics of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering have obtained

They have spent many years developing a new, unique technology. Today they have a certificate for its uniqueness. Researchers from the Institute of Transport and the Department of Applied Mechanics of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at VŠB-TUO have obtained a European patent for the innovative suspension of the motorcycle front wheel.

The unique solution utilizes a front fork angle change technology. After innovation, the fork can be mounted on a conventional motorcycle frame without interfering with the design. This makes it suitable for most current motorcycles.

The motorcycle modified in this way will be more stable at high speeds and easier to control in the lower. Due to the suspension with variable geometry, the driving characteristics of the motorcycle will be influenced automatically without the rider’s intervention. The technology can also be integrated with modern motorcycle systems such as traction control or brake assist systems. The equipment thus contributes to increased safety of operation.

 

At present, developers focus primarily on safety and reliability. They are working to ensure that their equipment had the best prerequisites to be approved for road use. Obtaining a European patent is a promising step towards negotiating the sale of a possible license to manufacture or use the developed technology.
