Hi all,

I am looking to switch to coil from my DVO topaz rear shock on my ripmo v2. I noticed the fox dhx2 is not one of the recommended coil shocks on their website. Does anyone know why a DHX2 would not be compatible with a Ripmo V2? Potentially the tune?

Thanks,
Patrick

The Ripmo, like many other frames uses a yoke mount for the shock. This effectively lengthens the shock eye to eye leading to tons of side loading. Air shocks are better equipped to handle that force than a coil shock and it leads to a dramatically increased failure rate on the shock.
