Pro Action shocks

Going to pull the trigger on some shocks guys. I need some advice. Pretty set on rear pro-actions, need help with the font choice? Any suggestions?

never heard of them. Got a link or details?
Did you stay with 12" or go to 13" for more travel?
I put Ohlins blackline 13" with preload and rebound adjustments.

They’re right in my back yard about a 15 minute ride. They’ve been around for quite a while in dirt bike circles...

Just did the 13" Pro Action's on my '13 Ultra along with Progressive Mono Tubes in the front. Rides like it's on rails. Very happy with results.

As a graphic designer, I cringed at this statement.


In regards to Pro Action shocks, I had never heard of them before this thread. Then I started researching and reading posts on other forums from riders who have them. They seem like a very nice product! I will probably be doing my rear suspension next year and the PA's are definitely in the running. Right now it is between them and the Supershox.

That's what I hear dude. Supposably really good shocks and decent price compared to other ones. I mean how would we know which ones are best anyways if you only buy one and stick with it. I doubt most people buy new shocks every year to try them out unless they somehow got them for free. Guys who ride supershox would not know how Ohlins feel unless they put a set on later or vice versa. Same with every their brand!
