About Us

Shockcraft is an engineering company specialising in bike suspension, parts and service. Shockcraft is run by a mechanical engineer (Dougal), environmental scientist (Ellen) and schnauzer (receptionist).

Shockcraft started in 2006 in Dunedin before moving, via the West Coast, to our present location outside Alexandra in Central Otago. The Central Otago mountains and schist are an excellent test of suspension and the harsh climate results in stunning scenery and world class riding terrain.

Our products are based around suspension and suspension service parts for all major brands and models. In addition to the brands we represent in New Zealand (Manitou, Motorex & RWC/Enduro) and the brands we stock and supply (including IGUS & SKF), we have our own Shockcraft branded custom engineered products and Monocrome branded bottom brackets, headsets, suspension bearings, bearing products, wheel bearings and bushings.

Our services include fork and shock service for all major brands. Our engineering services include full design and a small machine shop for prototyping complete with a CNC mill. These enable us to repair, replicate and manufacture from scratch to effect repairs and modifications well beyond even exceptional service centres. Our clean-room workshops are climate controlled and feature a huge range of tools and fixtures made in-house to aid service and prevent damage to sensitive suspension parts.

We supply both retail and trade, throughout New Zealand and internationally. Our products can be purchased via the web site, email (sales@shockcraft.co.nz) or phone (+64(3) 976-7790) 9 am to 5 pm Monday to Friday.
