KONI's 'GOLD' FSD (Frequency Selective Damping) is the first premium shock absorber that offers the best of both worlds: superior handling and control without compromising ride quality. FSD is firm to control large body motions and improved cornering but soft for comfort over expansion joints and rough roads. KONI FSD not only adds comfort and refinement but also improves grip and safety in daily driving.
Fits the following models:
2014-2020 F56 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop
2015-2020 F55 MINI Cooper and Cooper S Hardtop 4-Door
NOTE: NOT compatible with the factory EDC Electronic Damper Control or the DDC Dynamic Damper Control options.
The KONI FSD's revolutionary technology was designed and patented by KONI to end the compromise between comfort and road-holding. These shocks automatically adjust to road conditions as well as driving style, delivering greater stability and control - and therefore greater driving pleasure.
KONI Golds with FSD technology will transform your MINI Cooper into a smoother riding daily driver while also enhancing suspension performance. The groundbreaking FSD technology has been designed and patented by KONI to end the compromise between comfort and road-holding. This new feature can be used as an integrated part of the hydraulic valving system inside the damper. Consequently no additional cables, sensors, or any other electronic devices are needed to operate this system.
