Dr Shox has been using the Sphere Cartridge kit in his Husqvarna 350 this year and doesn’t want to give them back!!
the thing i really love about them apart from that, is the fact they fit all bikes, so with the small cost of a fitting kit, once you have the front end setup just the way you like it you can take the Sphere kit with you and put it straight into your KTM, HUSQVARNA, BETA SHERCO, TM, GAS, GAS HONDA, KAWASAKI, YAMAHA, SUZUKI!!!!! Brilliant.
We seem to be in an time where the Bike manufactures are experimenting with Different things, single springs, Air forks, 4CS, Explore… which has made the forks on most of the New Makes and models not as nice as they have been in years gone by!
I like testing with all these new light forks, and there are significant improvements to be made, The Ray kit in the WP 4CS fork is pretty amazing for one, i’m sure soon they are the future, But right now i like racing with a pair of Very high grade alloy, Quality, Hand made, Hard anodised, Closed cartridge forks with my trusty pair of Steel springs.
