How does Trust Performance suspension work?

Trust Performance suspension is unlike anything you’ve likely seen or ridden. We’ve introduced new technology to the suspension space and want to make sure you’re well-versed in how it all works and what it does to improve your ride. To learn more about the technology, visit the tech section of our site. If something isn’t clear and you have further questions, get in touch. We’re happy to go into greater depth.

How do I set up my Trust Performance suspension?

We’ve gone to great length to design a product that is incredible easy to set up. That said, if something just doesn’t seem right or you can’t find what you’re looking for from spending time with our product manuals and browsing the website, please reach out and we’ll be happy to walk you through it.

Can I use a Shock Wiz or similar device?


How do I know if my bike is compatible?

Before you place an order, you’ll want to make sure your bike accepts Trust Performance suspension. We’ve designed our suspension to be compatible with nearly all 29” x 2.6" (762 x 66) max or 27.5” x 2.8" (744 x 78) max disc brake mountain bikes with traditional tapered head tubes. The suspension also performs best on bikes designed around 120mm to 140mm of travel, but we’ve pushed the limits in either direction with surprising success. If you want to run the suspension on a non-tapered head tube or have a different bike setup in mind, call or email us to talk through your options.

Where can I take a test ride?

The best way to experience Trust Performance products is at a Trust Performance demo event. Upcoming events and demos are posted to our social media. Follow there to keep up to date on what we’re doing and where we’re at. If you don’t see an event in your area, please send us a message on social, email us or give us a call to let us know if there is an opportunity you feel would be a good fit for Trust Performance. We’re happy to have our demo team participate in events where we can.



What maintenance do I need to perform?

Trust Performance suspension products require service intervals every 250 hours of riding. That’s right, nearly 5x longer than your traditional telescopic setup. All of our product manuals and detailed maintenance instructions can be found in the manuals section of the site. If something isn’t clear or you have a more detailed tech question, give us a call or send us an email at

How should I clean my Trust suspension?

When cleaning your Trust Performance suspension, wash by hand using a soft brush or sponge with mild soap and water solution. As with most pivot locations, do not use a high power sprayer directly toward the moving linkage, as the added pressure can penetrate bushings, seals and bearings.
