Progressive Suspension – 970 Series High Performance Piggyback Shocks

Although certainly not a stranger to high performance suspension, we at Progressive have taken our craft to the next level with the new 970 Series Piggyback shocks. Inspired by racers, riders and those that demand more of their bikes than weekend coffee runs, the built in the USA 970 Series shocks combine a high pressure gas monotube design with deflective disc damping routed through two unique circuits and adjustable for compression damping via an easily accessible knob.

Techy features include a shock body and piggyback that are both coated internally to reduce friction and then capped with a forged aluminum upper. The shock is wrapped with a progressive rate coil spring that can be fine tuned via threaded preload adjusters to suit a rider’s weight and riding style (we like them firm in the corners!). Current fitment includes the Harley XR1200 and Dyna models with more apps in the works. Check it out here: http://www.progressivesuspension.com/970/index.html
