Metric Sized Shocks

Scout Gregory 17/05/2018 20 Comments
A couple of years ago a press release was issued by RockShox, DVO Suspension, Cane Creek, Manitou, SR Suntour and X-Fusion Shocks stating that there will be several new rear shock lengths and fitment options moving forwards. These new shock sizes are based on metric dimensions and are said to ''Provide performance benefits to suspension and frame designs''.



The new metric sizes are outlined above. The new sizing falls on 5mm stroke and 20mm eye to eye increments, and you'll notice lengthened eye to eye measurements for each stroke length. This has proved useful for frame designers, allowing them to limit the travel or reduce the stroke in 2.5mm increments.

While metric sized shocks may have slightly different measurements to the previous imperial sized standard, we have kept things simple by using the same size titanium springs as normal. 

If you have a new style metric sized shock and are looking to upgrade to one of our titanium springs, then simply round up the stroke length to the nearest sized spring. For example, if you have a metric sized shock with a stroke length of 65mm (2.55"), then you will need to order a 2.75" stroke titanium spring when upgrading to one of our titanium springs.

We have put together a little table for you to make it easier:


We hope this helps!

Is it possible to get a spring weight higher than 650lb? I weigh about 210 lbs kitted up and my leverage ratio is about 3.15, leaving me needing a coil somewhere around 850!

Hi, what is the difference between your 'Race Ti Spring' and 'Ti Spring' ( beside material )? Is there a weight-table/sheet/chart available with all available lengths, spring rates and weight for both 'Race Ti' and 'Ti'? how much adds the coating ( plastic ) i need one for my Super Deluxe 250/75 - so far not sure which spring rate 350, 375 or 400. depending on the gear i wear and the kind of riding i do - bike is being built right now. can you provide weight info for 'Ti' and 'Race Ti' for those three 'spring rates'. thanks

Hi Ricky No worries! Thanks Scout @ Ti-Springs.com

Hi Ricky Thank you for your comment. The only differences between our Race Ti Spring and Ti Spring beside material is weight and appearance. Our Race Ti Spring is lighter than our standard Ti Spring and the coils are more widely spaced. We don't currently have a complete table of spring weights but if you know what spring you are after I can let you know the weight. The plastic coated finish in terms of weight is negligible. Please could you let me know what bike you have and how much you weigh? I look forward to hearing back from you soon. Regards Scout @ Ti-Springs.com

Hi, I'm interested in a ti spring, I've the Super deluxe coil 230/65mm with 450lb (weight around 210lbs) spring (151/57.5-65). I've tried the 500 lbs one but it was a too firm... Is it possible to have a custom 475lbs ? Thx Guillaume

admin 28/07/2018

Hi Guillaume Thank you for your comment. A titanium spring for a RockShox Super Deluxe shock is no problem. I can confirm that you will need to order a 2.75" stroke 38mm ID fitment titanium spring. We don't produce a 475lbs/in rate spring as standard, however we can custom produce this spring for you. If this interests you, then please email us at sales@ti-springs.com for prices. I hope this helps. Regards Scout @ Ti-Springs.com
