KONI SHOCK ABSORBERS

Available from Toperformance Products

Toperformance Products is the sole Australian importer of KONI shock absorbers.
It distributes KONI through a number of interstate distributors and directly to the trade in Victoria.
Toperformance Products explains that KONI is “about people’s mobility.”
It states KONI has been a pioneer in this field since 1857, providing leading, durable and experience-improving technology.
It says KONI has established itself as the brand of choice for high quality products and has been producing telescopic shock absorbers since 1948.
“KONI helps people move comfortably at whatever speed they desire, wherever they are. KONI is everywhere from passenger cars to trains to military and industrial applications,” Toperformance Products National Sales and Operations Manager, Glenn Clemann, said.
“Being used in the most extreme conditions, including the dry Sahara desert and the freezing poles, proves that KONI dampers perform when tested.
“As undisputed industry leaders, KONI’s technical capabilities and skills develop, manufacture, and sell high-quality and top-performing hydraulic shock absorbers and suspension systems.
“KONI’s goal is to create the best experience for everyone on the move.”
In the early fifties, KONI decided to play a more prominent role in motorsports in order to enhance the company’s reputation.
In 1955, KONI participated for the first time in the Tulpenrally, a Dutch organised rally with international status.

Rally was just the beginning and KONI soon after began its racing career, entering Formula 1.
In 1956, while at the famous Nordschleife in Germany, KONI assisted the Ferrari team in solving their suspension problems.
The first Grand Prix that KONI officially participated in was in 1958 with Ferrari.
After that, the business expanded quickly and in 1971, KONI achieved its first World Championship win, as Tyrrell Ford won the driver’s and constructor’s championship.
Over time, KONI has not only improved ride control for rally cars and racing cars, but has also dedicated its expertise to improving the damping in various other commercial vehicles, and even for industrial projects like bridges. 
“Fast forward to today and KONI has a myriad of race driven achievements attributed to its name,” Glenn said.
“KONI is also the industry leader in ‘value per kilometre’ dampers for heavy commercial applications and the damper of choice for anyone in the automotive aftermarket and racing scene who desires durability, adaptability and performance.” 
Toperformance has recently relocated to Dandenong South and welcomes any KONI enquiries.
