Hi,

Does anyone know much about this shock or have any experience?
I am stuck between this and the RockShox Vivid R2C, but I have good experiences with X-Fusion in the past.

Cheers

ive just put one on my bird aeris and it's a great shock,right up there with Canecreek I used to run.easy to set up,plenty of adjustment.cant fault it.Was looking at the vivid,but too many reliability issuses from people I know.Ive had x fusion fork for 4 years,not a minutes trouble aswell.My shock cost £50 on eBay aswell.bonus.Will get custom tune at JTech when get it serviced,you won't be disappointed

Maybe consider the vector hlr air aswell,apparently very little in performance to the coil.I gunna get one aswell to do a direct comparison.

Thank you. I simply don't like the stickering on the RockShox!!
I have a Float X2 at the moment, so I'm just looking for something to run at bikeparks. I'd need to rob a bank to afford a DHX2!!

dont think the performance will be on par with the x2,but be a good option for smashing at uplift days and stuff,and for the money x fusionstuff iis second hand,I don't think there's anything to lose really.gunna take the coil and air to whistler next year put them through there paces.

I expect most of the time it will be worse. But I struggle to get good small bump sensitivity with the air. I think it has something to do with me being a lightweight at 60kg. A coil with the right spring should help.
