Ikon for Flat Trackers

Bedford, Pennsylvania based Ikon Suspension USA, the North American operation of the Australian suspension manufacturer, has responded to the growth in vintage off-road competitions, Flat Track racing in particular, with the introduction of a new line of Ikon 'FlatTrackers' suspension units for twin shock frames.

Developed in collaboration with Bob 'Flat-Track' Cuthbertson of RC Racing Components, Independence, Oregon Ikon 'FlatTrackers' for twin shock frames come in lengths from 12"-14" in half inch increments with black powder coated body and spring for durability. Several sizes of mounting bushes and spring rates are available in linear and progressive designs.
"It took a couple of seasons to fine tune the design in terms of shock valving and spring rate. Then, at the beginning of the 2019 indoor Flat Track season at Salem OR, Skyler Gore (on the Ikon Suspension USA equipped RC Racing bike) started racking up the wins," said Roger Kirwin of Ikon Suspension USA.
"That was the point when we knew we'd developed successful race winning suspension units," he added. Rebuildable and revalvable, these Flat Track specific 76 series shock absorbers are made as part of Ikon's 'Basix' range.
