I did some test rides over some solid bumps. Also did heavy brake/acceleration and turning tests to measure the squat that I get. Initial impressions are favorable. The ride is smoother as the multiple rate springs soak up all the little bumps that I use to feel. I haven't got out there and really put them to work yet. Have a planned ride next weekend to put at least 60 miles on them over some nice rocks and high speed drit packed trails.

Living in India I would have to suggest something similar to the Maxxis Bighorn. They do good in a variety of terrains. My other suggestion would be either the Pitbull Growler or the Rocker. These tires are made here in the states and I am unsure of international distribution.

They make 15" rims, but you will be very limited to the tires available unless you go with a LT tire.

There are no part numbers. You call or email Elka directly and they will custom make shocks for your ride based on your riding style and weight.

I couldn't ask for anything better. They WILL improve your ride in every way. They are worth the investment. I will never ride stock shocks again.
