Mountain Bike Suspension - Forks and Shocks

The forks and shocks on your mountain bike play a key role in keeping traction to your tires and your handling in control. Upgrading your MTB fork or rear shock can provide a massive performance boost as well. With top forks like the Fox 38, Fox 36, Fox 34 Step Cast, and RockShox Lyrik, RockShox Pike, and Rockshox SID, many of these forks offer performance to bikes of all travel and sizes. There are also other fork brands like Ohlins, MRP, Cane Creek, DVO , Marzocchi, and DT Swiss that offer mid to high end fork options as well. For your rear shock, the model you get depends on what type of bike you have much more than a fork, but some of our favorite options are RockShox Super Delxue Coil, RockShox Super Deluxe, RockShox Deluxe and Rockshox SidLuxe and from Fox we have the Fox Float X2, Fox DHX2, Fox DPX2 and Fox DPS. If you are looking for a more niche brand, we recommend MRP, DVO, Push Industries or Marzocchi. For any fitment questions or comparisons please contact our expert customer service team.
