Touratech Surfaces Awesome Extreme Shock [Photo Gallery]
Derived from roads racing, the Touratech Extreme Shock offers dual-speed compression damping. This means you get to set of the reaction of the rear suspension one way for slow riding and still benefit from another damping setting for high-speed.
But the amazing features will not stop here: the Touratech Extreme Shock comes with 50% more preload than any standard shock, a Position-dependent Damping setting to increase the damping rate closer to the compression limit and thus preventing the bottom-out in extreme conditions.
And with a 16mm high-strength shaft, the Touratech Extreme Shock is really ready for pretty much anything you can throw at it. Easy to set up for various loads and riding conditions, the Extreme Shock will work longer and better, as it will technically never bottom out on you.
Most likely Touratech has not launched a fully-loaded touring bike from a plane to see if the Extreme Shock can cope with that, but we believe you won't be jumping from a plane with your 990 Adventure, would you?
Touratech Extreme Shock prices start at $1,795 (€1,333) but it looks like this one is the most advanced unit on Earth.
