Under suspension geometry is defined as the constructive, partially adjustable design of parameters which affect the tracking accuracy and the steering characteristics of a vehicle significantly.
Depending on the purpose of a vehicle, the different parameters are set automatically and set in relation to each other.
Two-wheeled vehicles (bicycles and motorcycles )
- The caster has the greatest impact on driving behavior. A short follow-up increases the Kurvenwendigkeit, a long stability in straight!
- The steering head angle is determined together with the offset caster
- In the wheelbase the same ways as the caster, only the small changes you make little off. A short wheelbase makes a two-wheeler principle agile.
In addition to the parameters of the suspension geometry of single-track vehicles, the multi-track vehicles are determined by ( below) additional parameters:
- Track offset angle
- The spread is the slope of the expansion axis projected onto a transverse plane of the vehicle
