The V3 shock tower is available in silver anodised aluminium as well as carbon fibre.

The protractors are light of weight and easy to attach using the included hardware and they are available for the SRX2 Gen3 gullwing front shock tower, the Gen3 kit front shock tower and the SDX4 front shock tower.
