Plush Suspension Service Workshop
A little more about us

Plush Suspension was founded by Mat in 2012. It started small based on many years of industry experience working at SRAM Tech and teaching at Cytec; all backed up by a lifetime of riding and racing.

In 2017 Plush joined with BRINK with a shared vision to create the best mountain bike workshop in the country. The suspension workshop grew rapidly, along with the team, to the point where Plush is now one of the UK's leading suspension service centres; and we're still growing, fast!

Now in a joint move with BRINK to a brand new service facility, we're setting ourselves up for a bright and busy future, full of opportunities.
