Triumph Thruxton: Progressive 970 Shocks

Triumph Thruxton Piggyback Shocks

The late model Triumph Thruxton is virtually begging for a proper rear suspension and luckily for riders its cockney accented pleas have been heard by the techs at Progressive Suspension.

Fresh from their secret lab in sunny Southern California, the 970 Series Piggyback shocks have been tuned specifically for racers, riders and those that demand more of their bikes than weekend coffee runs.

What makes them special? The 970 Series piggyback shocks combine a high pressure gas monotube design with deflective disc valving routed through two unique circuits and adjustable for compression damping via an easily accessible knob, all to help find your suspension sweet spot.

Techy features include a shock body and piggyback that are both coated internally to reduce friction and then capped with a forged aluminum upper.

The shock is wrapped with a progressive rate coil spring that can be fine tuned via threaded preload adjusters to suit a rider’s weight and riding style.

Available in stock height and 1-inch lowered for the late model Thruxton chassis. Check it out on the Progressive Suspension site or contact your local Progressive Suspension dealer for more information.
