Has anyone setup a coil shock on a 153 process?

I had a vivid air on my 153, it was a fantastic upgrade, I'd imagine a coil would do the same. Go for it, I have a coil on the way for my 167.

Just fitted a Vivid coil and rode it on a decent loop yesterday, climbs just as bad as with the monarch but is much more controlled descending and traversing over tech.

Do you know what size & stroke is required for a Process 153?

Do it! Riding a Kona Process 153 with the Rock Shox RC2 Vivid Coil as well. The monarch air shock is garbage compared to it. I spent countless rides trying to dial in the Monarch without finding a optimal setting. With some research and a educated guess, buying the spring weight was the hardest step. After the first couple of rides and minimal tuning, it feels light years better. Ready to attack anything. Climbing difference? The vivd bobs less.... Much better. PERIOD. The industry keeps on trying to sell air. Pish, posh....

Get the coil shock and enjoy!

Got the fox dhx2 with the climb switch, awesome upgrade. Climbs better but on the downs, o man its good. I thought the monarch was rubbish especially after comparing the 2. It feels great, I recommend the coil for the process

after blowing my monarch debonair again doing some uplifts, im thinking of going coil but im worried about it being to linear i really like the pop and mid travel support from the air monarch. sucks for small bumps ect but of i really dont want to ruin the playfulness.
the bike jumps like a flea with air can and don't want to destroy that feeling. is there a massive difference or does the bike keep its pop .
fox dhx2 cs or x2 air cs looking like my faves. its got to have a climb switch as it gets some pedal miles done aswell

after a few months on a vivid coil i found it lacked mid stroke response, definitely more sensitive beginning stroke but when you hit the chop it felt overwhelmed and like it was packing up. Ive since moved to a float x2 and i am very impressed

What sag have you gone for on the coil?

ran the ohlins ttx 22 coil this year on my 2015 153 and it transformed the bike. amazing upgrade, really have loved the switch to coil.
I am so bummed that I can't keep it for my 2018 153 as ohlins doesn't have a trunnion mount yet. My ttx22 off my 2015 will be up for sale once the new bike comes in Frown

What are the coil options you've identified for the 2018 153?

Got my new 2018 153 sitting in a box until spring time and looking to swap some parts around- shock being top of my list.

honestly I haven't looked into it too much. Ive spoken with the guys at ohlins and they are working on metric size shocks for next year but don't know if they are going to do a trunnion mount version.
Only thing Ive really seen is the rock shox super deluxe coil that we have seen Connor running on that tan preproduction process 153 he was riding.

Great information!

Any idea what the eye to eye on the Process G2 is?
