Canadian Company to Launch MTB Shocks at Sea Otter

Boucherville, Quebec-based Elka Suspension Inc., an industry-leading manufacturer of innovative high-performance suspension and steering products, announced today it will launch a bold new line of mountain bike shock absorbers at this year's Sea Otter Classic.

Elka's new mountain bike line-up has been specifically designed and engineered for downhill, free-ride and all-mountain riding, aiming to provide a balanced combination of plushness, pedaling performance and comfort for each application. To achieve this, all Elka shocks will feature custom-tuned damping based on each bike's design and intended use. This gravity-oriented line-up will consist of 4 models with different adjustment options to address customer riding styles, bicycle categories and price point objectives.

The shocks will feature Elka's intuitive concentric dual high/low-speed compression adjuster, reservoir volume and pressure adjust to control the progressivity and also rebound and preload adjustments. Both hi-tensile alloy and titanium springs will be available for all models in a wide range of spring rates. All models will be offered in several length/stroke combinations - including the increasingly popular 10.5" x 3.5" size - so they can be fitted on the vast majority of bikes, past and present.

Although this will be Elka's first products for the mountain bike market, the company has over a decade of experience engineering and custom-building championship-winning suspension and steering products for powersports applications such as Motorcycle, ATV and Side-By-Side Vehicles. This new mountain bike product line incorporates many of the same innovative suspension technologies that have been used to win multiple ATV World & National Championships, SCORE Baja Championships, Mini-Motocross Championships and Motorcycle Road Racing Championships.
