DNA High Performance Filters work to protect your engine efficiently, without compromising performance.
INSPIRED BY HUMAN TECHNOLOGY
The "technology" that DNA filter uses to clean the air is surprisingly common to all of us. It is inspired by the Human respiratory system that filters the air that we inhale. Tiny moistened hairs called cilia protect the nasal passageways and other parts of the respiratory tract, filtering out dust and other particles that enter the nose with the breathed air. The DNA filtering cotton media is exactly that, millions of tiny fibers that are oiled. The "hairy hybrid" as we call it, is a genius combination of cotton fibers per square millimeter. The Tex & Thread, of this unique cotton, is a result of intensive research, by DNA's development engineers. The "hairy hybrid" impregnated with DNA's special filter oil, is transformed into the remarkable DNA media that provides very high filtering efficiency and extremely high flow rates.
TRAP "ENEMIES" BY USING STATIC CHARGE
The DNA Filter is designed to acquire a positive static charge as the air passes through the pleated and oiled filter media. The weak static charge will very efficiently "pull" on the oiled cotton fibers, the debris and dust that are in the air. For instance, remember in science class at school, the pen rubbed against wool that can attract small bits of paper, experiment? This is exactly what happens, as the air flows through the filter, debris even as small as 5 microns will change course and stick onto the fibers, regardless if the "holes" between the fibers can be as large as 150 microns. The first layer of debris on the fibers will then absorb some oil, get statically charged and become part of the filtering media. To top it off, it will start attracting new debris assisting the cotton media in its filtration. Finally debris will continue building up on the surface of the filter, as air passes through, until it is totally covered.
EXTREME TESTING ENVIRONMENT
DNA filters have being successfully tested in even in the harshest environments during the DAKAR Rally, through Argentina up to the Andes, and down to the Atacama Desert in Chile. The dreadful "Fesh-Fesh" (Guadal) fine powder desert sand of the Atacama Desert, was successfully kept out of the race engines, outperforming the foam filters.
So the myth is busted, the DNA filters can successfully be used in any environment, on and off the road, in the desert or the outback, DNA will be there to protect you.
INCREASED TORQUE AND POWER
The DNA filter will also smoothen out the air flow stream, as it passes through the filter, reducing turbulence and sending smooth clean & fresh air towards the engine intake, increasing torque and power. Additionally to the high air flow, smooth and unified air flow is very important. This explains why we see a decrease in the power output when testing a motorcycle on the dyno "without" a filter as the circulation of the air in the air box is disturbed and the result is turbulence and low power output.
High Performance and Protection always, everywhere!
