With accreditation by some of the best manufacturers in the business, Brook Suspension is at the sharp end both on and off track.

We specialise in motorcycle suspension products and services. Our company is certified by the likes of K-Tech, Andreani, Nitron and YSS, and we stock a large range of products from the UK and abroad including those aforementioned, GPR, Paolo Tarozzi, Hagon and more.

Brook Suspension is heavily involved in motorcycle racing, and company owner David Brook can often be found at the sharp end of the Thundersport GB GP1 championship fighting for wins and titles. The firm takes a unique approach that allows us to generate direct feedback on the products we sell and closely relate to the requirements of the customers we support.

We will only offer products that we believe in, and more often than not those products are the ones we race and win on. Whether its a full blown Superbike or a tastefully-modded 600, we can help get you on the right track.

We offer individual set-ups and a host of modifications for any rider regardless of ability with the capability to provide support from track to race.

From the average road rider seeking more support and plushness, to an avid track rider looking to get more enjoyment due to less restrictions that being on track allows, to the club racer and beyond who requires the best response to help them reduce their lap times, maximising their potential.

We understand that not everybody has an endless budget,  and we will work with you towards a solution that will work best for you.

SSR Suspension has no fancy showroom, nor do we hold a '9-5' mentality.  We work by appointment only, providing dynamic flexibility to our customers from our workshop in Telford, Shropshire.
