Cheers - how much would a pair of the x-system suspension units cost? The base units where you add your own seat?

Cheers

Mike

I was thinking of that - you can get cannondale quad links for 15 each (wishbone shaped) and a coil shock for 50 and i know a man who works alloys.

It might be quit an interesting project - you can get very cheap mountain bike rear shocks complete with preload and dampening.

Hi Mike,

Our aim is to produce the highest performance seats available, at a lower price, with a focus on simple design principles, and modern high volume manufacturing processes (such as injection molding).

I hope you find they fit the bill, although it's been a while since you posted up.

Here is a link to a quick intro:

Suspension seats for shock mitigation - Shark Seating

Any questions just let me know,

Cheers,
Dan.
