Forks and shocks

Forks and shocks

Choosing the right kind of forks for your bike can make all the difference between an okay ride and a great one! Road bikes can become lighter and more responsive, allowing you to ‘feel’ the road more effectively, and upgrading the forks and shocks on your mountain bike will help make those mental descents more manageable.

Short or long

Take your pick from our range of short-travel suspension for easy to medium conditions – they’re lighter and need little set-up. Or try long-travel all-mountain or freeride forks if you’re after more control in heavier conditions. These can be adjusted to varying levels of stiffness so you can feel just as much of the terrain as you want to. And if you fancy getting extreme, go for rock-biting coil shocks that will soak up awesome amounts of punishment so you can ride harder, for longer.

Better forks for a better ride

Recent trends among bikers have seen a return to the simplicity of rigid bike forks. On the hillside, they offer total control, are extremely light and require a minimum of maintenance. On the road, upgrading standard forks to tough, lightweight carbon delivers extra speed, greater control and better shock absorption too. And once you’ve chosen your forks, drop by one of our shops and our experts will help you set them up just right.
