Nitron Shocks NTR R1 Front 

A Nitron front shock is the perfect addition to a Nitron rear shock bringing a balance of performance to your BMW.

The Nitron R1 Shock is the most popular shock in the Nitron lineup and is perfect for street riding. Designed to significantly improve comfort, steering response and road feel over your OEM shock, the R1 shock features a single adjuster knob which tunes both rebound and compression damping simultaneously. The preload can be adjusted with the included c-spanner on the standard shock or optional remote Hydraulic Preload Adjuster for instant changes to cope with ride-height, road condition, luggage or passenger.

All Nitron R1 Shocks feature a large 40mm piston which allows for precise and consistent damping control. The pressurised gas-monotube design combined with the same high quality internal components featured in Nitron's top-of-the-line shocks will outperform shocks with much higher price tags. The gas tube and many other components are CNC-machined aluminium alloy, and feature a hard-anodised titanium finish which is corrosion resistant against the harshest weather conditions.

All Nitron Shocks are hand-built to order in England and are tested and measured before delivery. Every shock is tailored for each motorcycle’s specific characteristic and geometry, the only other factor is the rider’s weight with gear, so make sure you select the proper weight option above.


  • Completely rebuildable and backed with Nitron's US based maintenance and support service
  • Large 40mm piston flows 23.5% more damping oil than the competition
  • Very straightforward single adjuster for rapid combined damping adjustment
  • Hard-anodised corrosion-resistant finish
  • Lightweight CNC-machined aluminium alloy body
  • Pressurised Gas-Monotube design
  • For shorter riders the typical lower seat height achievable is up to 30mm/1.25"
  • 3rd piston Shim-Stack for very low speed rebound damping control
  • Ultra low-friction piston rod seal design

Note: To ensure you receive the Nitron Shock sprung for your specific needs, please select the weight option that includes your expected combined rider, gear and/or luggage weight. Images for reference only. Actual Nitron Shock will vary slightly depending on your motorcycle's make and model.
