ASYNC A1: Monoshock Vs Twin Shock

Dec 28, 2023 by Lily O.

When it comes to e-bike suspension, a monoshock could be a better choice compared a twin shock. Details explained as follows.

Twin shock:

Good at hauling load but doesn't help with bike handling

Twin-shock absorbers feature two valves and two pistons and do well in hauling load. Tuned to be softly sprung, they generally allow a more supple ride. When it comes to cost efficiency, as a twin shock system is easier to manufacture, they are generally cheaper.
The cons: since the two shocks work independently, it is virtually impossible to match their cadence. This will inevitably affect bike handling and decrease overall riding stability.

 

Monoshock:

Nice handling, great stability, but more complexity

A single shock uses a single valve. As you have probably guessed, bikes with monoshocks handle better than those with a twin-shock setup. As for damping, monoshocks absorb bumps in a more precise way, leading to better handling and stability.
The downside is that monoshocks are more expensive to manufacture and harder to maintain due to a higher level of complexity. Also they are not designed to handle excessive load.
