R 414

Mountainbike shock

RACE PROVEN - Jenny Rissveds and Nino Schurter raced their R 414 shock to the top step of the Podium at the 2016 World Championships and at the Race in Brasil. #Goldstandard.
R 414 is an acronym and stands for fast trail riding. Well, not really, but that's what this shock is all about. It's elegant conical shape integrates a large negative air chamber for super supple action which is further enhanced by a low resistance compression piston. With trademark DT Swiss reliability and lightweight, the R 414 sure will push you to try new lines and crush your KOMs.
