When buying new suspension from us we always work very closely with specification cards and our personal data log to ensure the correct springs and valving is fitted to your new suspension to ensure the best performance is always found straight out of the box, there is always a small chance we could be unable to find the perfect setting first time round, this doesn’t mean you have to accept this, simply call our workshop and discuss the issue with one of our colleagues who will always be happy to help you resolve any issues you may have.
Sometimes we will have the means to sell used suspension from our test bikes or even sponsored riders, when this happens there is always the possibility for you to grab a bargain by purchasing used suspension from an authorised sales and service centre like ourselves, all of our work is fully guaranteed and set-up to the new riders weight and ability as you would expect. Used doesn’t have to mean abused!

The Original fork remains fully adjustable in compression and Rebound damping but with the ORSS it provides external spring preload adjustment for the optimum in fine-tuning from hard pack to sand...
