Ohlins makes a front and rear matched set unlike other brands that may just offer a rear shock.

 

The Ohlins Shock is surprisingly affordable and very heavy duty, a large 46mm body and 16mm shaft with adjustable compression, rebound and hydraulic spring preloader and suits a large range of practical use.
