About Our Best Motorcycle Shocks

All riders want a smooth ride. We can’t think of anyone who wants to be bounced off of a seat or experience a bottoming out situation, just because of a pothole or a bump. Having a great set of shocks on your motorcycle will help you stay in your seat and enjoy a comfortable ride, no matter what type of terrain you adventure on. Buying the best shocks for your machine, and replacing them when they’ve come to the end of their lifecycle, can offer you continuous enjoyment on your cruiser, speed bike, street bike, dirt bike, or ATV.

What do Shocks Do?

The rear shocks on your bike absorb a great deal of the punishment that the road gives up, whether you’re riding on pavement or dirt - or something else entirely. It’s important that these shocks be the absolute best and kept in the best condition. Rear shocks range from standard coil-over shocks to gas-powered shocks with external reservoirs. These shocks even come in air-ride models that offer a rider the ultimate in motorcycle suspension.

Choosing Motorcycle Shocks

The best shocks for your ride depend on several factors, including your machine’s model and the conditions you’ll be riding in. There might be advantages and disadvantages to a set of shocks that vary according to a bike and a rider. Choosing the best shocks for a bike may come down to where you ride, how you ride, what you ride, and how much you want to spend. Most motorcycles come with stock shocks that are coil-over models and that are just used for damping. Standard shocks’ ability to absorb trauma during a ride, even minor trauma inherent with a casual motorcycle ride, begins to fade when oil starts foaming in the unit as it often does.

The Best Shocks

Many riders consider gas shocks to be the best shocks. These shocks have a nitrogen pocket that helps keep pressure on the oil to prevent foaming, and it keeps the shocks cool. Some gas shocks also come with a damping adjuster, which helps the rider dial in for the ultimate smooth ride. Air-ride shocks also offer adjustment, and in fact they’re the most flexible in terms of adjusting shocks according to a rider’s needs.
