Default Suspension frames

Has anyone here skated on suspension frames? A guy at the park told me about them - they have shock absorbers.

no, they are nice. makes landing smoother. and gives you a little extra hop to get high rails. i tryed on a guys pair at a park a few months ago and have wanted them ever since.

I use suspension frames.

They're not bouncy at all. The way these frames work is they have a base block - most of the frame - and two arms on axles that mount the wheels. These two arms have a block of rubber above them - so the arms can flex into the rubber piece. Honestly, you don't notice the difference until you start jumping off of stuff - landings feel a lot more comfortable.

I've got Kizer Team suspensions on my skates.
