It changes some of the Charger 2 valving so there is less high-speed compression damping and more low-speed compression damping to make the fork ride higher in its travel and improve downhill performance.

They asked Fox to make a shock with 0 damping, and when Fox refused they put the X2 on it so they could back off on the damping as much as possible? Traditionally, shocks have been measured eyelet to eyelet with imperial units 8. The cast lowers are magnesium, the same construction as the higher end forks. On the contrary, these same brands are making shit load of profit because of the image they make: if a pro racer who won a world cup rides our shit, it must be good right?

The switch to metric has allowed RockShox to extend bushing overlap between the moving elements of the shock. Some riders are loyal to one brand based on personal experiences. I'll be putting more miles on the shock in the coming months, but so far I haven't come across anything that I'd want to change - it's been handling every thing I've tossed its way without faltering in the slightest. RockShox Stanchions also have sag gradients printed directly on the stanchions. Simons became the president of the new company that year. In the long run this business system is going to run the industry to the ground but the wigs running the game do not care as they take the bonus and move to another industry.

It offers high- and low-speed compression damping adjustment and independent high and low-speed rebound damping adjustment. That increased negative pressure should improve mid-stroke support and reduce the amount of force it takes for the shock to enter its travel, although it's best suited for bikes with more linear spring curves. I feel like that was really a rock Shox thing. He began working on a simple, modified, lightweight motorcycle fork which evolved into the first generation of RockShox products.
