FOX introduces Roland Sands Design Signature Series for V-twins

Bob Fox designed and manufactured his first motorcycle shocks in 1974, seeking a performance edge on his motocross-racing competitors. From these humble beginnings near San Jose, California, FOX Factory evolved into a world-class suspension company. Today, the company that Bob built serves racers and enthusiasts for motorcycles, snowmobiles, UTVs, ATVs, trucks, mountain bikes, off-road desert racers and motorsports.

Roland Sands was born into a motorcycle-mad family in 1974. After retiring from a successful racing career, he turned to the family business of designing and manufacturing performance motorcycles and parts near Long Beach, California. Roland Sands Design has been a V-twin aftermarket component champion for years, and was seeking top-level suspension solutions for 2020 and beyond.

“The FOX shocks work!" Sands said. "If the riders are stoked it says a lot about the product and the future of the RSD x FOX products. We know we can build great suspension together for all facets of riding and that’s exciting."
