Sprindex Adjustable Coil Reviewed - Find Your Perfect Spring Rate!

This clever on-the-fly adjustable coil spring system is a simple solution to an age-old problem.

Rating: Vital Review

You can set an air shock to any pressure you'd like, making them quite popular in mountain biking compared to coil shocks. You'll need a pump to make that adjustment though. With this new coil spring system from Sprindex, no tools are needed to adjust a coil's spring rate to a finer degree than ever before. Join Vital MTB tester and Trail Peek ripper, Zach Petersen, in the video above for a closer look at Sprindex and his ride impressions.

Fewer active coils make for a stiffer spring. Twisting the Sprindex dial varies the number of active coils.

Zach cut his teeth figuring out how to ride on the unforgiving mining trails of Northern California. After watching Earthed 5, he decided to try out enduro racing and continues to seek out the most gravity-oriented events. When not racing he's smashing out big backcountry days in the Sierra Nevada, pushing dirt around the forest with a McLeod, and keeping the stoke high with Trail Peek.

More Info

A coil spring system that allows riders to adjust and fine tune the spring rate of their coil shock.

How it works: Fewer active coils makes for a stiffer spring. Twisting the Sprindex dial varies the number of active coils. Adjustment is done by hand and without tools.

Sprindex lengths and strokes are available for XC/trail, enduro, and downhill, each available in 4 spring rate range options, and each can be adjusted through a spring rate range.
