One of the best ways you can improve the ride and handling of your UTV is by upgrading its front shocks. A good set of UTV front shocks can provide the stability and comfort you need when traversing a wide variety of challenging terrain.
UTV front shocks come in a variety of different designs, depending on the needs of the rider. The most common design is the monotube shock, which holds the hydraulic oil needed for dampening abilities within the shock tube itself. It’s a simple and common design that’s relatively reliable and inexpensive, but other designs offer a greater level of performance and longevity.
Other shock designs maintain an external reservoir of oil. Piggyback shocks, for example, feature a reservoir mounted directly on the side of the shock tube. Remote shock designs feature a remote reservoir connected to the shock tube via heavy-duty tubing or braided line.
The level of ride and handling that comes from the factory is sound since the shocks are built to the specs as ordered by the original equipment manufacturer, ensuring quality and reliability. But aftermarket UTV suspension from Elka and Fox can provide a wider range of customization options and unique features for excellent levels of dampening and ride comfort. For instance, drivers can adjust suspension travel, height and dampening traits based on their unique riding needs. These shocks are the ideal choice if you face challenging trail conditions on a regular basis and need to leverage your UTV’s suspension.
