Can-Am Spyder RT / RT-S / RT Limited Aftermarket Front Shocks / Coilovers by Elka Suspension
The 2013 Spyder RT is undoubtedly an amazing trike, but the stock suspension isn't "one size fits all", just like we all prefer a different mattress for our body style, shape, and sleeping habits... suspension should also be catered to the individual. Upgrading your shocks is one of the best investments you can make for your Spyder "dollar for dollar". These Stage 2 shocks come custom-tuned specifically for your Spyder RT model, calibrated for your personal riding style with springs adapted to your rider weight, taking all the guesswork out and allowing you to focus on your ride. They are constructed from a 36mm lightweight aluminum shock body and offer spring pre-load and rebound adjustment.

All our shock absorbers come standard with a threaded preload adjustment that allows you to fine-tune the initial force applied on the springs and precisely balance the weight distribution across the front and rear sections of the vehicle. This adjustment is required to set up the ride height (ground or chassis clearance) and to lower or raise the vehicle, allowing you to adapt to various situations or to suit your personal preferences. You can easily adjust the preload by turning the ring located on top of the springs using the provided tool. A locking set-screw (3 mm Allen key provided) tightly secures the ring to prevent it from coming out of adjustment when riding. Although the preload adjustment procedure is easier to achieve when the vehicle is lifted on a stand, it can also be done on the trail.

The rebound adjustment controls the speed at which the shock absorbers return to their fully extended position after being compressed from an impact. Although the rebound valving is customized for your riding type, sometimes you might need to further adjust the rebound. Since not all riding conditions are the same, the rider will want to adapt the rebound damping to match them. By adjusting the rebound properly, the track or skis can stay on the ground as much as possible to get maximum traction and reduce the bucking effect of the spring pressure pushing back after an impact. Elka Suspension uses a compact adjuster that can be set with a flat screwdriver, which has detented clicks.
