The Suntour TriAir 3CR is an affordable rear shock that promises performance and easy maintenance. So, does it live up to the promise?
Perhaps one of the most overlooked parts on many bikes, at least when it comes to upgrades, is the rear shock. We're all keen to buy new forks, drivetrains, brakes and tyres, but more often than not, rear shocks tend to remain stock.
It's probably because most stock rear shocks are really very good, and perhaps the fact that a fancy shock upgrade can cost some serious coin, but what if there was a shock that offered a marked performance benefit at a good price?
