J.W. Speaker Corporation Designs the World’s First Dynamically “Adaptive” Technology for the Motorcycle Aftermarket
Germantown, WI, September 22, 2016 – J.W. Speaker Corporation, a leading U.S.-based lighting firm specializing in innovative LED solutions for OEMs and the aftermarket, is offering the first dynamically "adaptive" technology for the motorcycle aftermarket.
Dubbed the "Adaptive Series," this new technology solves the fundamental problem of night-time visibility, eliminating dark corners of the road typically found with current aftermarket and OEM motorcycle headlights. The Adaptive Series headlights are designed with advanced electronics and embedded sensors calculating bank angles on a real-time basis, automatically directing a light array up or down in the foreground as the motorcycle leans. Additionally, these headlights intelligently "tune" low beam and banking optics in a way that truly maximizes visibility around every corner.
Aldan American adds additional models and complete coil-over & spring packages for their Regulator Series, Midnight Black coil-over shocks.
“Previously available only through the Aldan American custom shop, we’re excited to unveil a full release of our Regulator Series coil-over line with additional lengths & options available,” said Aldan American President, Garrett Harmola.
Aldan’s Regulator Series coil-overs are CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminum and then receive a durable-hard anodize, midnight black finish. The midnight black finish adds additional protection from road debris, and makes cleaning & maintaining your coil-overs even easier.
Aldan American makes it easier than ever to order and install coil-over shocks with our new, fully assembled coil-over kits.
“Our team of suspension experts recently paired our most popular single and double adjustable coil-over shocks with matching coil-springs designed for custom chassis, street performance and racing applications. We went one step further to save our customers time and now offer select coil-over & spring kits fully assembled, ready to bolt on and go,” said Aldan American President – Garrett Harmola.
Aldan’s double adjustable Striker Series, and their single adjustable, Phantom Series line of coil-over shocks and springs are 100% made in the U.S.A. Every Aldan coil-over & coil-spring is made using some of the lightest weight, highest strength materials available on the market today.
