ShockWave Trade-In Program

Since the ShockWave was invented in the summer of 1999, we have constantly refined the details of manufacturing, performance, and installation. In 2010 we implemented numerous changes to the ShockWave product that have resulted in huge improvements in ride quality, reliability, and durability.
