  • Each kit contains 2 x spacers, 1 x low friction poly bushing and stainless steel mounting hardware. If you want to change the shock hardware in 2 x shock eyelets you will need to order 2 kits.
  • ****You absolutely need a DU bush tool to fit these, don’t attempt to press them in with a socket, you will split the poly bush ****
  • Made with tight tolerances and quality materials – stainless steel with acetal spacers. Every kit is supplied with a superior low friction polymer bush.
  • Numerous mountain bike suspension bushes are available on the market made from materials such as anodised aluminium, brass, steel and grade 5 titanium – our aim was to produce the hardest wearing kits at the most attractive price of any retailer.
  • All of the premium brands over the World choose either Stainless Steel, Titanium or Anodised Aluminium, with industry giants Fox offering Stainless Steel in addition to their lower priced anodised alloy kits.


    We made prototypes from all of the aforementioned materials and subjected them to months of real world testing with various riders around the U.K. Of course there is readily available data for all of those materials online for tensile strength, Rockwell Hardness, density and so forth but our concern as mountainbikers is the partial rotation backwards and forwards within the shock eyelet bushing and how well the material holds up before changes to the critical outside diameter are noted. The two class leaders in this department are 303 Stainless Steel followed by Grade 5 Titanium.

    Titanium has a weight advantage over stainless steel but for perspective a 22mm x 8mm stainless bushing weighs 13g to 7.5g for a Grade 5 Titanium equivalent. However even though Titanium has a greater tensile strength it scratches and wears more quickly than Stainless Steel, we decided that a rider was unlikely to notice a 5.5g weight difference but they would notice when they had to change their hardware. We settled on Steel.
