While the difference between a bad mountain bike shock and a good mountain bike shock can be life or death, the difference between a good shock and a great shock is still night and day. My first great shock was a 5th Element tuned by Avalanche. I had no idea how good a shock could be until then and it took mountain biking to a whole new level for me. With modern shocks like Rockshox Vivid, Fox DHX RC4, Cane Creek Double Barrel, and Bos Kirk shock-greatness are widely available. Check ‘em out and find your future greatest.
NOTE: Shock is custom ordered specifically tuned for rider frame and weight. Please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
