I have not heard of that brand. Mostly stuff like Penske, Ohlins, Fox, etc here stateside.

Home - Matris Dampers

Thanks for advice.. Penske Not common in Australia.. Race Tech Agent also has Ohlins.. He is recommends the Matris over the Ohlins..Also cheaper..
Maybe Wilbers could be another choice??

Wilbers is more a known entity here in the US but not that common.

It all depends on the cost / performance ratio with availability, servicability and quality / durability added to the equation that only you can decide on.

If you end up considering anything shipped from the U.S. then by all means consider Jamie Daugherty for a customized rear shock.

Have a look at YSS shocks, they are getting good feedback.
