The rear shock is one of the most important (and expensive!) parts of a modern motorcycle and yet it is highly exposed to damage and road debris. Distributed by R&G, Shocktube prevents damage from road salt, water spray and stone chipping, protecting this key component for a substantially extended period of time.
The effects from road debris such as salt, water spray and stone chipping, are detrimental to the exposed rear shock absorber and over time can result in its premature failure or, at worst, an accident. The R&G-distributed Shocktube provides riders with peace of mind, protecting against these factors to substantially extend the life of the shock absorber.
Shocktube is a high-impact, waterproof, vented tube that is made from top quality, bonded 100% CR Neoprene™ which is double lined with stretch nylon on both sides. Capable of being quickly fitted to most motorcycles with monoshock or twin shock systems, without the need to remove the shock, Shocktube completely encloses the absorber and spring. View it being fitted to a Kawasaki ZX-10R here.
Bruce Smart, solo round the world motorcyclist better known as TeapotOne, used Shocktube on his 100,000-mile journey, “I’ll admit, when I first got it I did think to myself, “Do I really need this?” but fast forward a year and I couldn’t live without it. I’d put the bike through every imaginable test and weather condition and the rear shock hadn’t let me down once – even after a bang so severe it cracked my rear sub-frame! I really can’t recommend it enough, it’s so easy to fit and absolutely no hassle to live with.”
