VECTOR SERIES

The Vector Series has been reborn in 2011. Stronger, lighter, more durable, and a lot more adjustable, the Vector Series provides what you need to tackle world cup downhills or epic all-mountain adventures. For 2011 we have made many changes that will enhance your perception on how high-end coil shocks should perform.

Immediately noticeable are the cosmetic changes we made to the shock. Reduced compression knobs and optimal reservoir lengths on specific shock sizes to maximize frame clearance. The Vector Series was also given a sleek new graphic designed to match the all black body and reservoir. Although performance is the priority, the new clean look of the Vector will surely compliment any frame.

Additionally we have switched to an aluminum shaft that drops the overall weight of the shock significantly. The rebound oil flow has been increased and a re-design adjuster rod profile offers finer resolution between clicks and additional tuning capabilities. Our low speed compression circuit has been refined which allows for a more usable and even range of adjustment. Lastly, we have completely redesigned our coil springs for even more weight savings. The Vector Series offers you a shock out of the box with the performance to satisfy elite world cup racers.
