The WR26 twinshocks are an alloy bodied, piggyback gas twinshock. They are 4
way adjustable, meaning they are separately adjustable for rebound damping,
compression damping, preload and ride height adjustment.
The rebound damping is altered by a hand wheel at the bottom of the shock,
this has 20 clicks of damping adjustment. The compression damping is
altered at the top of the shock via a hand wheel also. This has 25 clicks
of damping adjustment. The preload is altered with our own quick and easy
Tommy Bar’ preload ring. To change the preload you simply insert the tommy
bar provided with the twinshocks, into the preload ring and drive the ring
We supply the WR26 for two different uses. One is for the rear of
motorbikes (modern or classic) and the other for the front of racing
sidecars. The WR26 sidecar twinshocks are used by :
And supplied as standard fitment to the following F2 sidecar manufacturers :
- Nick Crowe
- Tim Reeves
- Klaus Klaffenbock
- Dave Molyneax
- Simon Neary
- Tony Baker
The WR26 twinshocks are built to order. This means that they can be made to
suit any suitable installation. We build our shocks to order so we can then
chose springs to suit the bike and the rider weight. We can also change
the unit to suit individual needs, such as a change in length to make the
bike turn quicker or slower. At a later date we can also supply replacement
extended eyes to lengthen the shocks if necessary.

The WR26 shock is gas pressurized. This allows more control of the how much
the suspension moves. This means that you can run a softer spring rate,
which in turn allows the suspension to track the road better and give more
'feel² to the rider. The gas pressure also replaces any air, meaning the
damping is less likely to fade with use.
The WR26 twinshock has been designed and developed by our in-house by our
team of engineers and technicians. We have designed it to be the most
adjustable piggyback gas twinshock on the market. It is manufactured from
7075 T6 Alloy to save as much weight as possible, whilst keeping its
strength and durability. All the individual components have been anodized
to prevent corrosion.
|The internals of the twinshock have been designed so
the oil can flow around the chambers with ease, allowing better performance
over a low and high speed movement. All internal moving parts have friction
free bearings fitted, to prevent wear and "sticktion".
