Manitou Swinger Expert Lock-Out ShockNo matter what kind of full suspension bike you ride, it will be more efficient, with better bump absorption, when fitted with a Swinger shock. The Swinger Air models features a tuneable, shim-based damper and an easy-to-operate lockout lever. Its compact form factor makes it a great choice for small frames.

A great shock, especially for the price. The old Evolver I have on another bike is my favorite air shock, and hoped the Swingers were similar. This one is. Easy to set up. Forgiving if not optimally adjusted, but lots of adjustments. And I even use the lock out on pavement getting to the trail, which I did not think I care about.
I have used it on a couple of bikes now. Lots of meaningful adjustments. Fairly easy to change compression and rebound on the trail when conditions change. Less expensive than most other similar shocks.
