I got 2 of these on the way, can’t wait to try them.
Made in Newfoundland and can’t beat the price.
A very reputable shock builder in Lab west is going to be selling and rebuilding these shocks.
They are taking an old set of my pogo shocks and may start to make those as well.
They are a very well built shock, for $250+tax a shock you can’t beat the price.
I got 7 to 10 day trip planned for beginning of March so I will be trying these out. Will be back with my thoughts.

The Revels run like $1700 but are tuned to your weight, there’s also the Elka set up

I did Revel front and back on my 2016 LE back in 2017. My goal at the time was to stiffen the front end up that would bottom out on sharp moguls (at low speed), the revels helped but do have to be cranked up to keep that 900 ACE from pushing the front end down on steep and beaten trails. The rear is not an issue, its held up well. A two-up ride, with winch and cargo box full does not bottom out. I just had some spring mount issues but the shocks have been trouble free.

Do you mean that the rear of the machine was too high ang and making the front dive? So I should get the ski shocks as well and tuned for the 900 ace

No, i don't think the rear was too high. The front stock shocks, as set up from the dealer, and the revel's, if not cranked up, do bottom out on short sharp moguls experienced on well beaten ungroomed trails. although i've never adjusted the rear strap, the rear suspension setting doesn't seem to affect the front hitting hard. but i certainly could be doing something wrong  ;)

Font Revel shocks on my WT worked out great with the Revel 100lbs springs . and stock shock on back

but i changed over large springs in back with SWT ones, they are stiffer

I have the full set front and back on my 2013 skandic WT 600 ace. Substantial improvement in ride quality, handling, deep snow performance. Somehow it doesn’t seem to bottom out while zooming through bumps. Full compression but no abrupt bottoming out. It was expensive but totally worth it. Started with the front springs, then did the shocks front, center, and rear. Highly recommend and Scott is a pleasure to deal with.

I bought a set of used Revel's a couple of years ago and had them rebuilt. I did like the ride better than stock, but the rear-rear sprung a leak after a few months.

Looking forward to hearing how these hold up. 

 

Aftermarket shocks in general are stupid expensive, it would be nice to hear that there's an affordable option that works and lasts.

Sprung a leak ?  The line to the rezzy come loose? That should be repairable in Lab West or back to Scott.

Just ordered both rear shocks for my 2015 expedition last week.  This is my first season on the expy and blew the air line fitting on my rear shock so decided to swap both shocks out for better suspension.  Cant wait to try them out.  I also ordered the SWT torsion springs while I was at it.

Just a seal in the shock started leaking, so there was oil on the shaft. 

I did have it repaired in Lab West.
