NEW FOR 2017: Monotube Fork Cartridge Kit and Fork Spring Kit for 2016+ Sportsters models!

Posted by on Dec 16, 2016 in New Products, News, Product | Comments Off on NEW FOR 2017: Monotube Fork Cartridge Kit and Fork Spring Kit for 2016+ Sportsters models!

True high performance front suspension has finally made its way to the 2016 + HD Sportster line. Progressive Suspension’s state of the art Monotube Fork Kit represents the peak of front end handling for the venerable XL and replaces the sloppy open bath internals with high pressure gas charged dampers. Also available is our Fork Spring Kit. The ‘Original’ Progressive Rate Fork Springs soak up the small road bumps, yet are firm enough to absorb the molar-rattling ones. Spring rates have been chosen to reduce front end “dive” during braking, yet still provide excellent ride comfort. Better yet, we warranty our Fork Springs and Monotube Cartridge Kits for life!

Apps for 2016 and newer Sportster models. No mods are required and installation is relatively simple.

NEW FOR 2017: Products for Indian Scout models

Posted by on Nov 22, 2016 in New Products, Product | Comments Off on NEW FOR 2017: Products for Indian Scout models

Progressive Suspension now offers a variety of suspension solutions for 2015+ Indian Scout models including our Piggyback 970 Series Shocks and our FST (Frequency Sensing Technology) equipped 444 Series Shocks. For the front are offered both a Fork Spring Kit and Fork Lowering Kit.

970 Series 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 and include a lifetime-limited warranty. Fitment for 2015+ Indian Scout models. Contact your local dealer for more information.

444 Series Shocks: After more than a decade of ruling the roads with our road proven 440 Series shocks, We’ve unveiled another breakthrough design. Dubbed Frequency Sensing Technology (FST) for its unique ability to dynamically adjust damping as you ride. The result is superior performance no matter the road conditions. A top mount threaded preload adjuster allows for fine tuning with a simple twist of the cap. Available in Standard and Heavy Duty in 11”, 11.5” and 12” lengths for the 2015+ Indian Scout models.

Fork Spring Kit: Our Progressive Rate Fork Spring Kits soak up the small road bumps, yet are firm enough to absorb the molar-rattling ones. Spring rates have been chosen to reduce front end “dive” during braking, yet still provide excellent ride comfort. Better yet, we warranty our fork springs for life! Progressive Rate Fork Springs have several advantages over straight rate springs. A Progressive Rate Spring has the advantage of a rising rate resistance to compression. The benefit of this is that the spring can be soft enough at the start of the travel to offer a “plush” ride, yet be firm enough at the end of the travel to soak up the big bumps. Offered in a Standard rate for all 2015+ Indian Scout models.

Now available for 2016+ HD Forty-Eight models are our Fork Spring Kit and Fork Cartridge Kit. The ‘Original’ Progressive Rate Fork Springs soak up the small road bumps, yet are firm enough to absorb the molar-rattling ones. Spring rates have been chosen to reduce front end “dive” during braking, yet still provide excellent ride comfort. Better yet, we warranty our fork springs for life! Progressive Rate Fork Springs have several advantages over straight rate springs. A Progressive Rate Spring has the advantage of a rising rate resistance to compression. The benefit of this is that the spring can be soft enough at the start of the travel to offer a “plush” ride, yet be firm enough at the end of the travel to soak up the big bumps. Progressive Suspension has gone back to the drawing board and created a state of the art Fork Cartridge Kit designed to outperform everything on the market.  Our new asymmetrical design places a preload adjuster over a progressive rate spring in one leg and an aluminum bodied, sealed cartridge damper on the other. The result is superior damping and ride control combined with tunable preload and a new benchmark for high performance suspension on the Forty-Eight platform. Can be installed in either configuration, Standard or 1″ low available for 2016+ Forty-Eight applications.
