Risse Racing shock on my bike?

Hey Lee,

I was wondering if you’re willing to give your opinion on this. If not, no worries.

I may need to get my rear shock rebuilt. Since it is an old model, the rebuild kit isn’t available from Fox.

Fox pointed me to Risse Racing.

Do you have any opinions about Risse racing? Or any experience with them?

I’ve seen mixed reports on the web about them, so I’m wondering how much effort I should put into finding another option.

Thank you,


Hi Kent,

Risse used to be one of the best and raddest suspension companies. Their DH fork was way ahead. But they’re off the radar these days. I don’t know anything about the efficacy or reliability of their new stuff.

Check DVO. If they have a shock that fits, that’s a great option.
