Established in 1972, Dah Ken Industrial Co., Ltd. was initially set up to produce car and motorcycle parts. It wasn't until 1990 that the company decided to focus on the production of front suspension forks for bicycles. With almost twenty years of experience and technical expertise in manufacturing suspension systems under its belt, the company quickly established itself as a leader in the bicycle industry. The RST brand achieved low pricing and widespread use of shock absorbers in the global bicycle market, meaning shock absorbers were no longer restricted to the realm of highly priced bicycles.
