The Short Story Of Legend Suspensions

Legend Suspensions: How It All Began

In the realm of motorcycle enthusiasts, Legend Suspensions stands as a pioneer in revolutionizing ride quality and performance. Founded in 1998 by Jesse Jurrens, Legend Suspensions embarked on a journey to redefine the biking experience with innovative suspension systems. What started as a vision to enhance the Harley-Davidson® Softail® Chassis soon transformed into a global phenomenon, offering riders unparalleled comfort and control on the road. Jesse Jurrens began his venture in his humble garage in South Dakota, USA, where he meticulously crafted one of the first air suspension systems for the Harley-Davidson® Softail® Chassis. From these modest beginnings emerged a company driven by passion and dedication, setting the stage for a revolution in motorcycle suspension technology

This groundbreaking technology, incorporating Gates™ Rubber Company’s Aramid fiber rubber air spring, marked a paradigm shift in motorcycle suspension. Recognizing the potential of air springs to deliver a smoother ride, Jesse Jurrens had laid the foundation for what would become Legend Suspensions.

Owner & Founder – Jesse Jurren

The impact was immediate and profound. Legend Suspensions not only redefined the Softail Chassis but also garnered industry acclaim, with Hot Bike magazine naming it the “Most Innovative Product of 1998.” The subsequent introduction of the V-Twin Excellence Award for Best New Product further solidified Legend’s position as an industry leader committed to pushing boundaries.


Over the years, Legend Suspensions expanded its product lines to cater to diverse riding needs. From air suspension systems like Legend Air to coil suspension offerings like Legend REVO and front-end suspension solutions like Legend AXEO, the company ensured that every Harley-Davidson® model could benefit from enhanced performance and comfort.

Legend Air Suspension VS Harley-Davidson® Air Suspension


Let’s face it, Harley-Davidson motorcycles are known for their iconic style, but not always for their comfort. Traditional suspension systems on Harley-Davidson motorcycles can be rigid and unyielding, leading to discomfort and fatigue on long rides. Air suspension systems, on the other hand, offer a smoother and more customizable ride.

Benefits of Legend Air Suspension for Harleys

  1. Improved Ride Comfort: Air suspension reduces the impact of bumps and uneven terrain, minimizing fatigue on long rides.


  2. Enhanced Handling and Control: With improved stability and cornering confidence, air suspension systems allow for a more enjoyable and secure riding experience.


  3. Adjustable Ride Height: Customize your stance and ground clearance with the ability to adjust the ride height on the fly.


  4. Smoother Braking Performance: Air suspension systems minimize dive during braking, providing better control and stability.
Upgrade your Harley-Davidson® riding experience with Legend Air Suspension and enjoy unmatched comfort, control, and adjustability on the road.
