Hi Chris,

Progressive shocks are exactly as they sound. The damping has a progressive feel to it because of the insert having the triangle shape being smaller at the top, making oil flow at the top of the shock slower than at the bottom. So as the shock compresses the damping gets progressively thicker or slower. This is usually ideal for low grip conditions, usually asphalt. Several guys like it at my local asphalt track which is actually medium and sometimes high grip. Some others prefer standard 1.1mm 4-hole shocks. We never use it on carpet though, as grip there is usually very high and PSS is not needed. I also don't think it is really ideal on bumpy tracks. Our asphalt track is not super smooth, but it is not bad for bumps.

Hope this helps,
Robbie
