Advanced Spring Configurations

A simple spring swap can help hone your Kinekt Post in on a perfect ride.  Use our calculator to determine which spring option will work best for your weight and riding style. Note: the calculator may suggest your optimum spring configuration is a combination of two different color stiffnesses, rather than one of the standard models. This can be purchased from your dealer or by requesting additional springs to try with your standard model.
