When deciding between air ride and coil shocks, it ultimately comes down to personal preference and specific needs. Both options have their advantages and disadvantages, and choosing the right one ensures the best ride experience from your suspension.
Let's start with Air Ride. Some may think air ride is primarily for cosmetic appeal, but our focus is on enhancing ride quality while providing the option for a lowered look when parked. One significant benefit of air ride is its ease of adjustment. Our kits come with onboard compressors and handlebar-mounted controls, allowing "on-the-fly" adjustments while riding. This adjustability is ideal for shorter riders who need to lower their seat height for parking but still want a comfortable ride while on the road. Additionally, air ride simplifies adjusting preload for different riding configurations, such as one-up, two-up, or with added baggage.
Now, onto coil suspension. For many customers, coil shocks are preferred due to their generally lower price point, simplicity, and ease of use. Our coil shocks come in various lengths, allowing customers to maintain or increase suspension travel while improving ride quality. Adjusting preload on our coil shocks is straightforward and doesn't require special tools; you can do it by hand. Additionally, our top-tier coil products, like the REVO ARC models, offer additional rebound and compression adjustments for fine-tuning ride quality and enhancing shock performance.
In summary, whether you choose air ride or coil shocks depends on your priorities and preferences. Both options provide excellent ride quality and performance, ensuring a smoother and more comfortable ride on your motorcycle.
