Rob from 1 Wheel Revolution is a rider we sponsor because he never seizes to amaze us with the way he pushes himself and his bikes to their limits all while getting unrivaled content in the process. This particular video and photo shoot included Rob’s Sporty getting equipped with some ‘ice friendly’ tire tread so all of his stunts could be maintained out in the tundra. Our 970 Series Shocks kept the rear stable in even the iciest of conditions giving Rob the confidence in his ride to pull as many wheelies and slides along the slick as his heart desired. Check out just a few shots from the shoot and be sure to follow him on Instagram and Facebook for much more!
Classified Moto does it again and this time, it also happens to be for a good cause! Partnering to giveaway the bike with The Movember Foundation, Classified Moto designed a crazy custom based off a Honda XL600R. Of course, in the classic styling of John Ryland of CM, a 465 Series Monoshock holds down the rear of the bike with style and performance.

A true sport performance shock at heart with an unbelievable low cost, the new 490 Sport Series Shocks feature a high-pressure monotube with deflective disc damping technology, hand threaded preload and a rebound adjustment to dial in the ride.

An engineered jounce bumper with a built-in metal cup also help smooth out and control bottoming. From pounding the pavement around town to hammering around the tarmac on your next race day, the 490 is the perfect choice for your performance demand! MSRP is only $649.95 for the pair and fits the H-D Sportster, Dyna, V-Rod, Touring and the Triumph Bonneville, Thruxton and Scrambler models. See more info here!
Tyler Malinky and the guys over at Low Brow Customs recently put together a killer project built around a S&S panhead engine and is rightfully named “The Pan-American”. What better way to break it in then riding it on a 3000 mile journey cross country to the Born Free Show! Check out their video explaining the whole project here and some photos below!
June 25th and 26th we got our first opportunity to set up at the infamous Born Free Show. Everything went off without a hitch as we setup a variety of bikes showing off various shocks and seem to have gotten a good amount of positive feedback from the crowd with our shock displays, and questionnaires for t-shirts. Here are a couple photos showcasing our setup; we can’t wait to go back again next year!
Another banger from our friends at Classified Moto, this time formed from a 1978 Kawasaki KZ1000. The “KZR-1” was commissioned by Rebel Yell Bourbon, and by the company’ name alone, we’d say the guys at CM came up with a perfectly synonymous machine. Our bronze 970 Series shocks were an excellent choice to match the “WW2 Messenger Bike” colors and styling these guys went after. Check out the full write-up on the “KZR-1” here.Read More
