  CONE
 

 
 
 
 

The Moulton CONE Special Edition is a celebration of sixty years of Alex Moulton’s rubber cone spring design. First used as a suspension spring on the classic Mini car in 1959, much of the Mini’s remarkable handling and road-holding has been attributed to its revolutionary Moulton rubber suspension.

The Mini became the most successful British car of all time, with nearly five and half million built over a forty year production run. Moulton still supply original cone springs for the repair and restoration of these iconic and inimitable cars.

 
   
 
 

The Moulton bicycle - having always featured full suspension right from the beginning in 1962 - gained the cone spring on the rear suspension in 1983 and still uses a modified version today. The use of rubber as a suspension medium is beneficial in many ways including durability, lack of ‘stiction’, tunable rising-rate characteristics and damping through natural hysteresis.

The Moulton CONE has all the essential Moulton features - small wheels and full suspension for comfort and road-holding, stiff open frame for unisex use, a range of luggage options and a space-frame that separates in less than a minute for ease of stowage and transportation.

 
 
 
  The Moulton CONE with the original Moulton Cone Springs for the Mini - over 15 million were made.
