Matris have been manufacturing some of the best speed sensitive dampers in the world since about 1990. There are other brand names that are better known but in our opinion none that produce a better product! As well as the range of steering dampers produced by Matris they also produce a range of Shock Absorbers, and an equally high quality range of Fork Conversion Kits. You will find out more about the Matris product range by selecting the relevant link at the top of this page.
BTR Ride Height Adjusters
Allow you to raise the rear of bike. This quickens the steering response by putting more weight on the front wheel, thereby improving turn in but can reduce high speed stability a little. There are two types, ride height adjusters are fully adjustable to allow you to change the ride height to suit your needs. Tie rods are non adjustable and shorter than the originals to ‘Jack up’ the rear and achieve the same effect. We generally use these where an adjustable unit is not possible
Woodcraft crash sliders
We have seen some simply incredible claims in the British press about some peoples sliders! Do you believe everything you read in the press? No, nor do we!
A sliders job in life is to help to protect the other components in the event of a crash, specifically the frame and in the US they are known as frame savers not crash protectors. Many are so badly designed, they can cause more damage than they save!
Woodcraft Frame Savers are, as usual for them, a touch more thought out than most. They are constructed in two parts and have several design benefits.
