The primary differences between these kits are: whether or not the air pressure in the shocks can be adjusted while riding or while stopped, if the shocks have rebound control or not, and price point.
Our Air HVG kit is the entry level option customers have who are interested in air shocks. This kit is designed to be an affordable upgrade option for those who want an improvement in ride quality and are considering going with a complete air ride system in the future, but maybe don’t want to spend the money on a complete air ride system right away. The AIR HVG kit comes with two shocks, air line, “Y” fitting, spacers for mounting the shocks, and a hand pump to manually inflate the shocks. The AIR HVG kit requires the air pressure to be adjusted manually with the hand pump when the bike is stopped. The customer has the option to purchase the rest of the components needed (compressor, solenoid, wire harness, handlebar control, etc.) to make the kit a compete air ride system with “on the fly” adjustability in the future. The air shocks provided in this kit give you an unsurpassed ride quality with 3” of travel and the air springs are designed to give you consistent ride quality with our top of the line Aramid Fiber Air Springs along with our internal damping system. These shocks hold a lifetime warranty and are made in the USA.
The standard Air kit is the next level up from the AIR HVG kit, and comes with two shocks, compressor/solenoid assembly (specific to each model), handlebar control switch, wiring harness, air line, “Y” fitting, and spacers for mounting the shocks. This kit gives you the ability to adjust the air pressure in the shocks “on the fly” via the handlebar mounted control switch. The air shocks give you an unsurpassed ride quality with 3” of travel, the air Springs are designed to give you consistent ride quality with our top of the line Aramid Fiber Air Springs along with our internal damping system. These shocks hold a lifetime warranty and are made in the USA.
The AIR-A kit is our top of the line air ride system and includes the same components as the standard AIR kit, however, with the AIR-A kit you get the option of rebound control to allow you to finer tune your ride quality. Each shock on the AIR-A kit, has an external rebound adjustment knob that allows the rider to control how fast or how slow the shock returns to normal state with six different adjustment positions numbered 1-6 for ease of use and easy tunability. These shocks hold a lifetime warranty and are made in the USA.
