Discover KnitMesh Technologies’ Bump Stops

KnitMesh Technologies’ Bump Stops are a crucial component in protecting a car’s suspension system during compression, preventing moving parts from coming into damaging contact with each other. While polymeric or elastomeric Bump Stops are suitable for many driving conditions, there are instances where a more robust alternative is required, particularly in high-performance or motor-sport applications.

Crafted from knitted wire mesh, KnitMesh Technologies’ Bump Stops offer unique compressibility and resilience properties, making them the ideal material choice for demanding suspension setups. Unlike traditional options, these innovative Bump Stops have the capability to operate in high-temperature, corrosive, and hostile environments, while also withstanding very high shock loadings.

One of the standout features of KnitMesh Technologies’ Bump Stops is their versatility. Available in a wide range of profiles, they can be customised to meet the precise requirements of the customer’s application. This level of customisation ensures that the Bump Stops seamlessly integrate into various suspension systems, delivering optimal performance and durability.

Understanding Suspension Systems


A suspension system refers to the collection of components that connect a vehicle’s wheels to its frame or body, allowing them to move independently and absorb shock while driving on uneven surfaces. 

Bump Stops are a critical component of a vehicle’s suspension system, designed to prevent damage to the system when the suspension reaches the end of its travel. These components are located at the top or bottom end of the shock absorber, limiting the travel distance of the suspension system when it bottoms out.
