Ikon Basix shocks feature chrome plated steel bodies, fixed rate damping, 3 position adjustable pre-load and black powder coated progressive rate springs. The preload adjustments allow the rider to select from light for solo riding, medium for two up comfort and/or more spririted riding, and heavy for two up and/or heavy loads. These shocks offer a long service life, yet are fully rebuildable, and are sold as a pair. Approximately 324mm long, ~12.75". Ikon Basix shocks feature fade resistant fixed rate damping with the standard issue spring suitable for solo riders in a weight range of 150 to 210 pounds on the lowest spring preload setting, while the highest spring preload setting is sufficient to maintain ride height for loads over 300 pounds. These shocks feature progressive rate springs that provide a wider load range than fixed rate springs, giving you a shock absorber with a wider range of capabilities.There is a long history of good results with the selected spring rates.
