Shocks For Off-Road Bikes






On this page you’ll find summaries of the brands of shocks we sell to suit many off road bikes - MX/Enduro, Trials, or maybe trail riding or green laning. They’re shown in order of increasing price & performance, although because each brand has a range of performance options they all overlap!

We aim to have the most competitive prices around for all our shocks, so if you can find a better deal elsewhere please give us a call. The price shown is the price you pay, including vat and delivery to most areas of mainland UK.

      Our shock brands for off-road bikes are:



There are a lot of chinese shocks on the market, and not all of them are very good. MDI branded shocks are some of the best of these economy shocks. They are traditional hydraulic emulsion shocks and work well for ordinary green laning and trail riding. As you'd expect, at this price they won't last very long over jumps or heavy duty use!

The all chrome 345mm trail shocks are designed for bikes up to 250cc. Primary application is for the Honda SL125.

The all chrome 400mm shocks designed for general trail / green laning use on many bikes 125-400cc. They have been used successfully on Honda XL250 and also on Suzuki SP370 when increased ride height is needed. Springs are straight cut and can be chrome as pictured or red as a no-cost option. Spring rating is around 100lb-in and available travel is 115mm max.

Both types have adjustable preload (C-spanner required, £3 extra), and we will fit the correct bushes for your application before despatch, all in the price.

Betor's ranges of off-road shocks are some of our best sellers. Including various MX/Enduro and Trials shocks, they are well made, perform well, last well and are very reasonably priced.

The MX range are good quality gas shocks designed for Motocross / Enduro use, but also suitable for general mixed trail, green-laning and road use. Available in 340mm, 360mm, 390mm, 400mm and 410mm lengths. They have 105mm max travel, 6-position preload adjustment via circlips, 12mm rods, and are supplied with progressive springs rated 80/150 lbs. Bushes are fitted with 12mm steel sleeves. These can be pushed out if you need 14mm, or we can supply steel inserts to reduce the hole size to 10 or 8mm. Weight is around 2.8kg the pair. Rebuildable, and fitted with schrader valves for you to set your own pressure if you have nitrogen available!!

We also have some specialised Enduro shocks available including those shown for Bultaco Frontera/Pursang Mk 11 / 12 / 15 . These have 360mm dampers & separate gas reservoirs.

Sizes: 340,360,390,400, & 410mm.

Betor Enduro Shocks.

£215/pr.



If you're new to trials the Betor steel range is ideal. Made in Spain originally for Bultacos, they cover most bikes and rider weights with choices of damper length and spring rate. And they're good enough that you probably won't bother to upgrade them as you improve - look around at the next meet, probably 50% of the bikes will be using these shocks!

The gas-pressurised soft dampers are available in 340/360/400mm length steel bodies and there is a choice of either 40lb, 50lb or 65lb starting spring rates, although the springs are progressive and end up at around 80/90lb. They have 105mm travel, 6-position preload adjustment via circlips, and 12mm rods. Bushes are fitted with 12mm steel sleeves. These can be pushed out if you need 14mm, or we can supply steel inserts to reduce the hole size to 10 or 8mm. Weight is around 2.5kg the pair. They can be fitted upside down if required. Rebuildable, and like the motocross shocks above they are fitted with schrader valves for you to set your own pressure if you have nitrogen available!! [See below for repair kits]

And then there are Alloy Pro's, the latest version of the old favourite. The steel bodies are chromed, and fitted with aluminium end pieces to save weight - only 200 grams saved, but it all counts!!. Redesigned internally as well, they are excellent. Plus the preload adjustment is now via threaded body rather than circlip, and the lower bushes are semi-conical to allow more freedom of movement. Available in 320mm, 340mm, 350mm, 360mm, 380mm & 400mm length with a choice of 40lb, 50lb or 65lb starting spring rates, although the springs are progressive and end up at around 80/90lb. They have the same long 105mm travel and 12mm rod. Bushes are fitted with 12mm steel sleeves. We can supply steel inserts to reduce the hole size to 10 or 8mm. Weight is around 2.3kg the pair. They can be fitted upside down if required.

And if you want the best, take a look at these PRO-ELITE trials shocks. They have the same style and finish of the Alloy Pro's, and the same 35mm od dampers, but with two important changes which make all the difference. First, they have ADJUSTABLE DAMPING - via 20 clicks of the slotted screw set into the top mounting - enabling you to find the setup that perfectly suits your weight and the terrain, and vary it for different conditions. Second, instead of the 12mm rod that's standard on the Steel and Alloy Pro shocks, these Pro-Elite lovelies have a beefed up 14mm rod fitted for extra strength and positional stability. Available in 340mm, 360mm and 400mm length with the usual choice of 40lb, 50lb or 65lb starting rate springs. Also now available at 300mm long, but only with 65lb springs. Not cheap but the good stuff never is.

Hagon have been involved with all types of off road motorcycle sports for many years. Alf Hagon, who started the business back in the 1950s built race-winning bikes and was very successfully involved with speedway, grasstrack, and drag racing. Alf was actually the first Brit to break 200mph on two wheels, in 1967. The company is still very involved with off-road, amongst other things they sponsor speedway events, riders and training schemes.

For trials and MX / Enduro use Hagon make a range of bike-specific single-spring shocks. They are steel bodied 28mm gas pressurised dampers with separator pistons, have 100mm travel, and are pre-65 eligible. 3-position enclosed cam preload adjusters and run rod down. Available lengths are 330 / 340 / 350 / 360mm. Springs are black, rates 12kg to 20 kg. Although not rebuildable (the dampers are crimp-sealed around the shaft), they come with adjusting spanner and a 2-year unlimited mileage warranty.


For more general trail riding, mixed on-road/off road, green laning etc Hagon make a range of twin-spring shocks. Black painted 28mm sealed damper units featuring 2-coupled springs for faster rising action plus long stroke piston rod with 110mm travel. 3-postion spring pre-load adjustment by enclosed cam.

YSS started out in 1983 making good quality budget shocks, - we sold loads of them. Then around 2001 the company moved upmarket. They partnered with leading European shock designers to produce a stunning range of shocks to fit most bikes in the park, from old hack to full race bike. They now make more than 2 million units annually, all ABE/TUV approved and all with a full 2-year warranty. Built with the latest CNC technology, YSS shocks look and feel real quality pieces, and the lower manufacturing costs from building the shocks in Thailand mean that they are seriously good value.

Shocks for monoshock off-roaders are not too well served by aftermarket manufacturers, probably because the bike models seem to change more often, so production numbers are smaller. And the shocks take more of a battering! YSS are already making quite a name for themselves in off road applications as well as street bikes. For example, we sell at lot of MZ366's for Honda CRF230 (2003-on), where the adjustable damping is a big improvement on the original shock. As is the MZ506 shock on Honda's dual purpose CRF250L (2012-on). YSS monoshocks are all designed to suit each application. They have rebound damping and infinite preload adjustments, have a true quality feel and are rebuildable; and they come with a 2-year warranty. Built in Thailand to keep manufacturing costs down, they are excellent value.


YSS MZ366 - Well made monoshocks with adjustable damping, preload & length. 36mm piston with 16mm shaft for strength. £299 each.

German company Wilbers are one of the largest shock manufacturers in the world despite making only very high quality (and therefore not cheap) shocks. They are also one of the few manufacturers who extend their warranty beyond 2 years - Wilbers shocks are warranted for 5 years, although you need to have them serviced after 2 years to activate the extended period.

Wilbers Ecoline shocks are excellent quality and can also be the cheapest shock available for some bikes, like the 540-series shock for Honda's XL250R (MD11 frame) pictured here, which has a 46mm damper, stepless preload, progressive shim-stack damping control, and spherical bushes.. Made to order to suit rider weight, very substantial and well made shocks. Delivery 2 to 3 weeks.
