I have been using the "R" Racing Ohlins modified shocks on my 2014 GasGas, 2017 Sherco and now on my Beta 4T. The traction is noticeable better than the GasGas Reiger, Sherco Ohlins and The Factory Beta shock. My disclaimer: I ride in the Northeast with slippery tree roots, moss covered rocks and lots of rocky stream beds and lets not forget steep gullies. I feel i am a intermediate rider. Along with the improved performance, my confidence level is much higher to ride tricky obstacles. I can't wait for the ride report on the Fox shock.
