" Keeping dirt & dust out of your shock... "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 27th May 2005 from Singapore

The Review
Works well for keep dirt and dust off my shox...well not too sure if it can prolong the life span of it but at least it can save my time on clean up the shox.

Plus it doesn't affect the performance of the shox makes it a "must get" factor for off road riding and especially you just can't bear to see your shox all messed up with dirt.

U'll be surprised how the amount of dust and dirt kept out.

Weaknesses
- Tear a hole on one of it before due to improper handling.

The Review
have it on my bike for sometime & i think i have forgotten how my rear shock looks like.
it's easy to snip it on & taking it off for cleaning.

time for the rear shock to see some lights & take some dirt.

Strengths
keep debris & mud off the rear shock.
should keep at least the internal of the rear shock clean in wet, muddy rides.

Weaknesses
the boot went in between the gaps of the rear shock coil, bottomed my rear shock & tearing the boot.

" Keep Squeaking rear shocks away! "


Overall Rating
Reviewed on: 16th Apr 2005 from Singapore

The Review
It took a wet off road ride to convince me that these are necessary in adverse weather conditions. The rear shock became squeaky all of the sudden after the ride and it isn't really user servicable. The boot reduces the amount of time I need to pay attention to the rear shock and free my mind from worries about damaging trail debris that might scratch the stanchions (rear shock replacement isn't exactly cheap). But there's a need to periodically check under the boots to clear dirt that got trapped beneath and to finish off with some light lubrication on the stanchions. In all this has kept my rear shock happy ever since.

Strengths
Keeps out moisture, dust and preventing scratching of stanchions by trail debris.

Velcro fit easy fitting and removal.

Comes in different colours to match your bike.

Weaknesses
Traps dirt, but it wasn't meant to be a fit and forget item.
