I really like the X-fusion RV-1s. Seriously good fork.

Was just looking at vital's review on them. Wish they came with the right springs.. really not into buying and waiting for multiple springs to figure out which one works..wonder what street price really is on them? EBay they want 1200plus.. i can get the 2015 40's for that..

I ride the 2015 Boxxer Wc and I´m pretty happy with it. Before I owned a 2013 Fox 40 and a 2014 Dorado and I rode a friend´s 40 Float. Imo the boxxer is the best. It´s very easy to tune it to your personal preference and it´s pretty light. Last pro is the price. A 40 is much more expensive, so it isn´t worth it to spend much more money in a 40 which isn´t better than the Boxxer.

is it true that 2015 wc better than dorado??

I am about to buy my first dc, and these two are my target. Actually I am considering marzocchi too, but no one sell it in my place.

Yeah, it's the same here.
Indonesia has many talented rider, but it's hard for us that not a national or sponsored athelete to buy or at least consider to buy a bike products.

I'm currently looking to get a new set of dual crown forks. I was set on getting a set of 2015 fox 40s, but since Rs have announced the new charger damper I am kind of stuck for choice.
Choice = Fox 40 Rc2 or Boxxer Wc
Any opinions will be much appreciated.

I must admit the new air spring and charger damper feels phenomenal. It's more plush and responsive as my old 888. I currently have 1 token in the air chamber and will most likely add a second (3 are provided in the box). I seemed to have bottomed it out after doing phantom drop at Mountain Creek. Although I did not feel a harsh bottom-out, the rubber O-ring indicated otherwise. Travel was smooth and controlled through rock gardens and braking bumps. I definitely found myself going faster in technical sections I normally did slower. My hands were not at all fatigued. So happy to be able to feel and move my fingers at the end of a run.

Tuning is insanely simple, 1 compression and 1 rebound knob. All you have to do is set your air spring pressure (air pump is provided) to your weight. I just hope its as reliable as my old 888.

RockShox definitely has made a killer fork.

Do you happen to have a picture of the air pressure chart?
