This is a pack of two optional Tekno RC Aluminum Non-Vented Shock Caps. "Vented" refers to the small hole on the top of the cap inside the shock mount eyelet, not to be confused with the bleeder hole on the side of the cap. In some conditions a non-vented shock cap will provide better handling than a vented shock cap and vice versa. Non-vented caps provide a more progressive feel, allow you to tune in more rebound, and will handle hard landings better than vented caps.
With any bladder shock setup, the bladder is used to compensate for the volume displacement of the shaft moving in and out of the shock body. There is air between the bladder and the top of the shock cap. A vented setup will allow the air to escape at full compression and re-enter at full extension or anywhere in between. A non-vented cap will compress the air trapped between the bladder and the cap, creating rebound and a more progressive feel to the suspension.
