Is anyone running an super deluxe ultimate coil on their Remedy? Looking for upgrading my 9.7 ‘19 shock. Seems RockShox is selling the new shocks in the 230x57.5 size.

Think my rooty and muddy riding would feel amazing with a coil shock..!

I'm getting one installed as we speak, I'll let you know once I get to ride it.

Would love to hear it. Which one did you get?

I got the Super Deluxe Select+ off a Megatower. They had to replace the bottom eyelet with one that fit the Remedy's hardware, but I got such a good deal on the shock I didn't really mind spending a bit extra to have that done.

I’m looking to upgrade the suspension on my 2018 Slash 9.7. Currently debating wether to upgrade the fork or shock first. Any opinions? I ride mostly in Pisgah NC

I have a 9.7 and did the shock first. I would take this approach again if I were to get another bike. I ride Pisgah as well, and the coil was a tremendous upgrade on the bike. For a small bit I rode with the Yari/CC coil combo and it handled Pisgah (Bennet, Black, buckwheat, etc) well enough.

Yeah I could always add the debonair spring and hold on to it for a bit.

I've put charger2 and debonair 170 shaft. Great fork now

Also planing on shock upgrade in future, maybe Fox float x2, as i like to pedal aswell, but dunno how big of an upgrade that would be compared to stock shock.

I was gonna say, Front tire is most likely the reason. But still, you'd think it would have dropped weight somewhere...

Hm interesting if Gained weight the tires are that much bigger

The weight difference in modern aluminum and carbon isn’t substantial anymore. Now carbon is mostly ride quality along with very slim weight saving. You won’t really notice any weight difference unless you have a full carbon frame, wheels and bars f.e
