IKON shock absorbers and fork springs are now available for most popular Triumph motorcycles from the Sixties and Seventies, including the T100, T110, T120, T140, T150 & T160 models. Replacing worn shock absorbers will provide owners with enhanced comfort and handling, while the progressive rate spring technology and adjustable rebound damping on the IKON units deliver the correct response on the Triumph twins and triples, whatever type of riding the owner enjoys.

In a progressive rate spring, the distance between the individual coil windings differs, so when riding solo the spring operates in the wide coiled section, where it can easily compress to deliver a comfortable ride. When riding with a passenger or luggage a firmer spring is needed. Under these conditions, the spring moves in its more tightly wound stiffer area to give the right combination of a smooth ride and a high load capacity.

"With today's deteriorating road surfaces, there has never been a better time to improve your bike's suspension," comments IKON's UK distributor Norman Hyde.

The IKON rear shocks are twin tube hydraulic type dampers, derived from Koni Dial-a-Ride technology, with 4-way click adjustable damping to enhance comfort and road holding. They also have the facility to be rebuilt. All IKON shocks are individually dyno tested and checked before leaving the factory in Australia. They are available with black springs, priced at £269.08 inc. VAT per pair. For owners wishing to create a more authentic Sixties appearance, IKON offers a version with chrome springs and shrouds retailing for £310.20.

Replacement progressive rate fork springs are also available from IKON, selling for £78.14 inc. VAT.
