The TRP trials shock absorber is a great upgrade for any trials rider to obtain a better suspension setup, as it allows for a wide range of adjustments to be made to the rear damping using the anodised serrated roller. The question you have to ask yourself is are you happy with the rear suspension on your machine? In truth many riders do not know how to set their machine up, and that’s where the TRP rear shock can help. Go to a good reputable trials dealer who supplies the product and ask for some general advice – or maybe it’s easier to talk with one of the more professional riders who understands how the rear suspension should be set!
Main Features: Fully adjustable rebound — Progressive damping — Top quality CNC machined aluminium parts — Anodised serrated roller for easy adjustment — Made and assembled in Belgium.
The shocks are based on rider weight via the wide range of different springs available. Every shock has a different damping for the weight-specific spring. There is a piston inside the shock to separate the nitrogen from the oil, which is why there is no need for the external reservoir like on other shocks. TRP shocks are available through every Off Road Action dealer worldwide.
The test charts for every shock are safely guarded in our archives. In this way we can compare a shock with its original cycle when it comes back for service or repair and trace the exact origin of the problem. For example, in some cases we’ve seen that the shock still worked fine on the dyno but the linkage on the motorcycle was the defect. The dyno is connected to the computer so we can easily follow the cycle during the testing. This makes it easy to check the values and see if there are any deviations in the cycle. Any necessary changes can still be made at this point. When you purchase a TRP rear shock you are investing in a masterpiece of engineering!
Here we see a TRP on the dyno. After assembly every shock is carefully tested on the dyno to check if the right values have been achieved and if everything works fine. We work with hydraulic damping in our shocks, which means that the first contact on the motorcycle is soft and gentle but it progressively increases during contact with an obstacle to ensure maximum contact of the rear wheel with the hazard. The selection process of components for each rider’s own rear shock is extensive.
