The Genesis | The Astro-5 | The Terminator

Price: $298.00

The Astro-5 is for those who ride up . . . and down. Adjust your rear suspension "on the fly" with the Astro-5. The five position adjustment lever has a wide range of damping settings. From an "active" downhill setting to the uphill "climbing" setting, you can match your suspension to the terrain. When positioned on the stiffest setting, the shock mimics a lock-out but is not a lock-out.

The Astro-5 Damper is available for most rear suspension applications. Note: If your bike is not on our application list, that does not mean we cannot make a shock for your frame. The best thing to do is email us a picture of your bike and we will let you know if we're able to make a shock for it.
