About the program
We are proud to offer this sponsorship program to help racers get to the races with proper suspension. Since the beginning, our company’s strong involvement in racing has helped us develop some of the most advanced shock absorbers on the market, which have been used to win more races and overall titles throughout the world than any other brand.
We are looking for serious riders that can provide professional exposure, but more importantly valuable feedback on the products and service. This critical information is vital to help us ensure that what we make is constantly meeting the needs of the most demanding customers of all; the racers.
Every year, we support hundreds of deserving racers and events all around the globe. If you think you’ve got what it takes to be up front, you are welcome to apply for sponsorship. Not everyone will get full factory support, but for many riders, sometimes just a little help might make the difference between missing a race and winning it.
