A Spectrum of Technology for Your Vehicle

Revolutionary, Patented New Monroe Valve Technologies

Monroe® R-TECH2® valve ①

Promotes smoother, more precise transition between damping control phases
Two sets of calibrated disks separated by an eccentric “Helical disk“, eliminated unwanted, abrupt changes in damping force.

Monroe ICV (Impact Control Valve) ②

Faster, more consistent response under conditions of high-compression stress
New valve more effectively withstands and responds to harsh impacts
“Clamp-disk” design with high-resistance, lightweight disks minimizes inertial forces making it more reactive.


The combination of Monroe® R-TECH2® and the ICV provides faster, highly progressive and more consistent response for exceptional control of grip, stability and vehicle handling.
