Rockstar’s top freerider Steve Romaniuk has chosen Elka’s Stage 5 as his shock of choice for his upcoming pro-model replica signature bike by Mongoose.

“After spending the off season testing out suspension products with hopes of finding a way to get that slight edge for the summer. I wound up dealing with a smaller company with big technology. From Streetbike to ATV’s to Mountain Bike, Elka has been servicing suspension needs for pro motorsports riders and are now hopping on the freeride wagon! I am pleased to announce for 2010 Elka will be soaking up the rear end of my Mongoose Boot’r.

I found real advantages after testing this shock and put the call in to Tony at Elka to see if they were interested. The level of technical support these guys provide for me and there knowledge in the suspension will give me that edge I have been looking for! Thanks Elka.”  -Steve Romaniuk
