SKF Fork Seal Kit for MTB
With its experience in the industry, automotive and motorcycle, SKF has developed a wide range of replacement seal kits for hydraulic MTB forks.
Developed to limit internal friction during suspension and to increase the grip of the wheels on the ground, SKF seals provide better riding sensations.
SKF joints are recognizable by their green color, a material specially developed for the application of suspensions.
Wide range available:
Available for the biggest brand of forks: Fox, Rock Shox, Marzocchi, DT Swiss, X Fusion…
Advantages of SKF seals:

SKF seal kits generally consist of 2 main seals, 2 foams and O-rings. The contents of the kit can however vary from one brand of fork to another.
Double lip seal technique:
The first ensures the internal sealing of the fork (that the oil remains in the mechanism)
The second acts as a scraper to prevent external dirt from entering the fork.
SKF uses prepreg foam seals to reduce friction and ease of assembly during periodic fork maintenance
