Shock Hardware, Service & Christmas Hours
Shock hardware is a vague term. To many it might sound like a shop selling hammers, nails and circuit breakers.
But here at Shockcraft we use the term to describe the group of parts which connect each end of a shock to the frame; it has to hold the shock securely while letting it pivot freely.
Straight Axle Hardware
At Shockcraft we like to play at the reliable and hard-wearing end of the market so we have developed shock hardware called "Straight Axle" - as pictured below.
Our straight axle hardware runs a strong and hard stainless steel pin which won't bend or easily wear, teamed up with black acetal collars to keep the shock in line without chewing up it's finish. We run IGUS bushings from Germany in the shock eyelets as they can't rust, are self lubricating, extremely long lasting and don't ever chew into the pins. We have optional sealing collars too - for those who like to really get dirty.
To top this off we can custom fit the hardware to a shock, as even though most shock eyelets are meant to be the same size, they never are. To make the hardware fit and work like it should we match pins to the eylets within +/- 0.01 mm. Take a look at the 1 mm mark on a plastic ruler. Our shock hardware is toleranced to 1/100th of that size. Any tighter and it binds. Any looser and it knocks.
At the end of all of this you have shock hardware that does three things so well you'll never notice:
1. Supports the shock bolts so they'll never bend or break.
2. Pivots so smoothly that you'll swear it is running on bearings.
3. Outlasts any other shock hardware. When it does finally wear out the IGUS bushing, you simply punch a new IGUS bushing in place and keep riding, with minimal cost and down-time.
