ABOUT NIMBUS

Our meticulously handcrafted oleo-pneumatic suspension systems for Defenders are designed for off-road enthusiasts and are renowned for exceptional comfort, efficiency, and safety. 

 

And because your Defender is one-of-a-kind, we custom-build your suspension based on your unique rig and how you use it.

Our use of top-of-the-line materials combined with our highly skilled craftsmen and expert engineers ensure that every Defender suspension we create is built to last for decades.

NIMBUS EQUIPS THE FOLLOWING LAND ROVER MODELS

ENHANCED COMFORT

Classic Land Rover Defenders were not built for comfort. But we're here to change that. The air in our suspension functions as a the ultimate cushion, delivering extraordinary comfort — like driving on a cloud. With oleo-pneumatic technology, road bumps or gravel become imperceptible as they are effectively absorbed by the air.

ADVANTAGES OF OLEO-PNEUMATIC SUSPENSIONS

READY FOR ANYTHING

From overlanding and dirt trails to desert racing, rock crawling, mudding, dune bashing and more, Nimbus has got your back.

OVERLANDING

Overlanding is where Nimbus Suspensions really shine. Our suspension systems are ideal for overlanding because of their ability to adjust to varying loads as well as the incredibly comfortable ride you'll experience when you're driving dozens of miles on uneven terrain.

OFF-ROADING

Looking for grip and traction? We got you. Oleo-pneumatic suspensions keep you glued to the road for a more stable, comfortable, and safer drive. They respond delicately to vibrations and minor shocks, and stand strong against the big ones.

EVERY DAY DRIVING

Let's face it, classic Defenders aren't exactly known for their comfort. But we're here to change that. Nimbus can drastically improve your daily driving experience, making it feel like you're floating on a cloud. Your back will thank you.

HOW DO OLEO-PNEUMATIC SUSPENSIONS WORK?

Nimbus oleo-pneumatic suspension systems absorb and dissipate shock loads using a combination of hydraulic fluid (oil) and gas (nitrogen) inside the chamber.

The gas functions as a spring. It is compressed by the oil to absorb the impact of bumps.

 

The oil is directed through spring-loaded flaps and orifices to allow for different responses from the shock based on your desired driving settings. Increasing or decreasing the pressure adjusts the spring rate.

The oil, therefore, restricted by the flaps and orifices, acts to dampen the movement of the piston assembly during shock absorption and recoil.

THE LAST SUSPENSION YOU'LL EVER NEED TO BUY FOR YOUR DEFENDER

We measure durability in decades, not years.

Nimbus Suspensions are designed for decades of exceptional comfort, safety, and performance — giving them a lifespan similar to your indestructible Defender. 

Our secret to longevity blends state-of-the-art oleo-pneumatic technology with the finest materials, meticulously handcrafted by our team of skilled artisans and engineers.

EACH DEFENDER SUSPENSION IS METICULOUSLY CRAFTED TO ORDER

That’s right, built on demand, by hand. When you place an order, we'll ask you about your Defender's specs, your driving preferences, and how you use your Defender (overlanding, raids, etc). Armed with these insights, our team of expert craftsmen will set out on a journey to forge the perfect suspension system, tailored exclusively to you and your Defender.

When we say “meticulously crafted by hand,” we mean it.

YOU'VE GOT QUESTIONS, WE'VE GOT ANSWERS.
  • How do I get my Nimbus suspensions installed?
    The technology we use is pretty advanced, but installing Nimbus suspensions is as easy as installing any other brand of suspensions. If you're comfortable wrenching on cars, it'll be a walk in the park. If you're not feeling the DIY vibe, your mechanic can definitely handle the install for you. And if you happen to live in Europe and feel like driving to our factory in the South of France, we will install them on your vehicle for free!
  • Can I install Nimbus suspensions myself?
    Absolutely. If you're comfortable tinkering on cars, installing Nimbus suspensions is pretty simple for most rides -- it's just like any other brand of suspensions. Once your new suspensions land in your hands, we'll hook you up with a "How to" video so you can nail the installation like a pro. And hey, if you hit a snag, don't sweat it – drop us a line anytime. We've got your back, 24/7. PS: if you happen to be in the South of France and feel like taking a drive to our factory, we will install them for free!
  • What happens if I damage the suspensions during the installation?
    It's unlikely you'll mess up the suspensions big time while installing them – maybe just a couple of scratches at worst. But if it does go south, it's on you. No worries though, we've got your back. Just shoot us a message and we'll help sort out the mess, depending on what kind of pickle you're in. We're always here for you 🫶
  • How long does it take to receive my Nimbus suspensions?
    Each set of suspensions is custom made with artisanal craftsmanship for its future owner and their prized ride. Please be aware that production of this level and quality can take a hot minute. Our expert engineers hand fabricate and fine-tune your shocks, then quality control steps in to give these bad boys the nod of approval before they make their grand exit from our factory. Now let's talk timelines. Production can take up to two weeks, depending on demand at any given time. And shipping usually takes from 2 days to one week, depending on your global coordinates. We appreciate your patience in allowing us to focus on delivering the ultimate driving experience, designed just for you. And remember, good things come to those to wait 😎
  • Can I return my suspensions if they don’t meet my expectations?
    Yes. Within 30 days, you can return your intact suspensions back us in their original packaging, no questions asked. Please be aware – there is a $240 inspection and restocking fee. The remainder will be refunded the rest within 7 business days, minus shipping costs. Easy peasy.
  • Can I track my order?
    Absolutely! Once your suspensions are on the move from our factory or global offices, we'll send you a tracking number so you can keep tabs on your shiny new toys in real time. We work with Chronopost and Fedex to make sure the shipping is as fast and as secure as possible.
  • I have a set of tires for offroading and another set for my daily use, mostly on the road. Do I need to adjust the pressure of your suspensions when I swap the tires?
    When your ride conditions change, a pressure tweak is a good idea. That said, it's all about the weight your beast is packing. You don't have to adjust the pressure simply because you're changing tires, but if the load changes too, then it's best to go for it.
