A COMPREHENSIVE RANGE OF SHOCKS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED TO MEET THE DIFFERING CONDITIONS FOR RACING, SCRAMBLES, TRIALS AND ROAD USE, IN A CHOICE OF SIZES, SPRING WEIGHTS AND DAMPING.
The aim has always been to provide a range of shocks developed specially for each discipline, of high quality, with reliability, at a sensible price.
Direct sales are made throughout the world and we have agents and distributors in several countries.
Over the years many changes have been made to specifications, reflecting changes in technology, riding styles, and customer expectations.
Most shocks are built to order and can be changed to meet any special requirements, and delivery times are usually short.

"It’s a hard job but somebody has to do it."
The wide spring preload adjustment is used to set up the spring for best performance, and the ride height of the machine can then be changed by adjusting the shock length (without removing the shocks) to obtain the best steering response, without compromising the preload setting.
The length is adjustable between 335 and 385mm and cost £235 a pair.
‘ULTIMATE’ shocks can be used with the spring at the top or bottom to avoid any installation problems.
TRIALS AND SCRAMBLES
Introduced 25 years ago NJB Classic shocks have undergone considerable development and refinement and established a reputation for performance and long life at a ‘sensible’ price.
They will continue to be available for Trials, Scrambles, Road and Racing for those who prefer the more ‘classic’ black and chrome finish.
TRIALS AND SCRAMBLES
Available in 330, 340 and 350mm centres @ £89 a pair.
Of ‘old fashioned’ non gas construction these shocks are for the trials rider who wants traditional 1960s ‘Girling Shocks’ appearance.
Usually having an all black finish, they can be fitted with chrome springs, and/or chrome half covers.
Such variations are no problem for NJB, most shocks are built to the rider’s requirements and can take account of any unusual aspects of the design, or variations in weight etc.
CLASSIC ROAD BIKE SHOCKS
Available in lengths from 280 to 350mm centres
@ £95 with exposed springs or £105 with black/chrome covers.
When rebuilding old bikes many will want to retain the appearance of the original and replacement components have to maintain this , whilst providing improved performance.
These Road Bike Shocks have been designed closely to resemble the Girling shocks that were fitted to the majority of British bikes.
They are supplied in the ‘CLASSIC’ shrouded form, with a black top and chrome lower shroud and in ‘OPEN SPRING’ form for more sporting bikes.
Congratulations to Dan Thorpe, Winner of the 2019 Pre'65 Scottish Trial!
Dan was 2nd in 2018, on a tie break, and 3rd in 2017. A superb result for Dan, and a well deserved victory.
Here you can see the Ultimate shocks in SLOW MOTION in a typical section showing how they help keep the tyre in contact at all times.
James Lampkin rides the EDMC Pre'65 Two-Day Scottish in 2016 on his 249 BSA fitted, of course, with the new NJB ULTIMATE Trials Shocks.
James won the Best Under 250 Award at the event.
Sam Appleton has been extensively involved in pre production testing of the ‘ULTIMATE’
