Air Ride Suspension Kit Softail 18-later

made by Thunderbike

Air Ride for Softail Models 2018 onwards

With custom bikes the optics has a very special value. By means of these air suspensions the bike can be lowered from a ride friendly level at the push of a button to an ultra-flat show optic and just as quickly pumped up again. The Thunderbike Air Ride System offers the perfect synthesis of comfort and tough looks! The pneumatic shock absorber can be adjusted in height by means of an electric compressor while stationary and an adjustable head, depending on the vehicle. The kit includes a pneumatic cylinder made of stainless steel (V2A), an oil-free compact compressor with an output of about 100 watts (12V, 9A, maximum 12 bar / size 140x140x40mm), as well as a digital manometer (40x40mm) with corresponding holder.

Softail models are characterised above all by the rigid frame look. The trick consists of a mostly triangular swingarm and a shock absorber, which is mounted almost invisibly under the seat. The shock absorbers can be exchanged relatively easily for the Air Ride shock absorbers manufactured by us. The additional compressor is mounted in the immediate surrounding, also invisibly. The pressure cylinders are made of high-quality stainless steel, which in turn guarantees maximum quality. How the Air Ride Suspension Kit looks compared to the original you can compare here:


Of course the Air Ride Suspension Kit is mainly designed for our fenders. For a nice, clean look we recommend the installation of a Thunderbike rear fender. You can see and compare a selection of rear fenders in our online shop. Are you missing some inspiration for your new rear part? In our Custombike category you will find a lot of Harley-Davidson conversions.
