The RRD 2.25 inch Shock's fluted aluminum body gives the advantage of weight reduction without sacrificing strength. Which not only make this shock the lightest remote reservoir shock in its class, it also provides a surface area greater than most 2.5 inch bodied shocks. The fluting provides the structure required to ensure the aluminum cylinders are as strong as, if not stronger than their steel 2.5 inch counterparts. The shock bodies are also treated with a military grade hard anodized coating so you never have to worry about corrosion. A high quality DU bearing provides the bearing surface for the massive .75 inch Nitrobrite Shaft Material. And unlike chrome plated shafts these Nitrobrite shafts are bare so you never have to worry about pitting or flaking potentially destroying the seals. While a billet aluminum valve circuit with digressive valving controls the dampening, redundant sealing technology keeps the shock oil where it belongs. The shock oil is formulated for fade-free dampening and smooth rebounds. Its high viscosity index and shear stability controls shock fade. This with a custom moly piston wear band greatly reduces shock body wear.
All these features combine to make the RRD 2.25 inch Shock a fraction of the weight of the competitions 2.5 inch steel body counterparts and cool twice as fast for fade resistant performance. And all RRD Shocks come with a 6 month Warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

When ordering the first number is always your compression dampening and the second number is your rebound dampening! For example a 40/60 valved shock would be a shock that is Light-Medium in compression dampening and Medium-Firm in rebound dampening.
