Take one look at the Shark suspension and you see it right away. Only one moving part (the shark absorber) mounted to two rugged but elegant injection-moulded leaf-springs with massive 200mm of vertical movement without any of the sharp edges or pinch points that are found on other suspensions. There is also nothing to rust, no coating to peel, just hi-tech UV-protected Flexanite with colour that is all the way through. The unique "Flex" design absorbs impacts in all three axes... Handy, because waves don't just pitch straight up and down! Flexanite composite plastic makes the Shark Flex system VERY light, yet robust, with minimal maintenance needed. The same approach applies to the Shark Jockey seats which have a tiny footprint and weight only 3kg, but which cater for all sizes of passenger and allows both sitting and standing without needing to readjust the seat. Shark Flex has been tested to withstand over one million 10G impacts of more than 100ms duration at 120kg payloads (100kg on the seat and 20kg on the deck) and the entire system complies to test protocols defined by the UK and US military. Despite this ruggedness, Shark provides a supple ride - the softest available, like "riding on a big marshmallow!". Flex is part of a complete system including a range of seating and elevating plinths to suit any marine application.
