    I thought I read that Konflict helped design the touratech shock.... Maybe they can chime in on it's design.

    Supposed to have a better seal than others too. Low friction or something. On their extreme model you can adjust low and high speed damping.

    I'm just saying. Do your research, make some phone calls.

    I admit I'm a bit Anti Touratech in general as they tend to really jack up their prices for no real reason than people pay it. The up side to that shock is Alex at Konflict is the only one in the US able to service their shocks, and as you can tell, i'm more than happy with his work. So use that as another variable when you decide.

    I was really wanting a 16mm shaft, but nothing will be avail for a bit and I wasn't willing to wait.

    Here's the list of all I found for the '13, I wanted full adjustability, Comp/Reb/Preload

    The following have 16mm shaft, high/low speed adjust etc.

    Hyperpro Piggyback and Remote res
    Yakugar Piggyback and Remote res (same as Hyperpro, just different colors)
    Elka
    Tractive (Touratech)

    The following have 15mm shaft High/Low speed adjust
