Morning Snik,

Yea that's true, they do look a lot like the FK Highsport. But in reality if you were to lay the Solo, FK, ST, KW, etc all side by side aren't they all going to "look" pretty similar?

As a dealer for both Solo and FK it is pretty easy to compare the FK Highsports to the Solo S1's head to head:

FK Highsports-
- Height adjustable, with preset shock dampening
- Regular steel construction with Gold Zinc coating/galvanizing
- Aluminum spring perches
- 1 Year warranty provided by FK Germany

Solo Werks
- Height adjustable, with preset shock dampening
- Regular steel construction with heavy Gold Zinc coating/galvanizing
- Aluminum spring perches
- 3 Year warranty provided by Solo Werks USA

Additionally the main points we see that are important to our customers are:
  • FK Highsports typically $800 shipped vs. Solo $499 shipped
  • FK 1 year warranty vs. Solo 3 year warranty
  • FK No US tech support vs. Solo in California

All other external features appear to be pretty close ie, lowering range, galvanization on the housings , spring color, etc.

Let me know if you have any additional questions

Thanks,
Matt@AMI
