Slx cranks feel good on a voltage, good Strenth to weight ratio.

+1 on the SLX cranks, they are better than saint in my opinion.

Anyhow, here's some voltage riding from the Gold Coast, Australia.

Shit dude, thats huge! How big are those gaps?

The longest one is the 5th one, it is 40 foot from the lip to the knuckle but is not very steep. The step-up hip thing after it is probably the gnarliest. Such a rush!!

Hi guys,


Any of you running a Dhx5 Air on your bikes?

I've heard they work well with some bikes, and they're terrible for others.

Quick review?

Thanks!

Does anyone here pedal up on their Voltage? I'm looking for a new AM/Freeride bike and the Voltage is really eye catching. I used to have a Bottlerocket but it pedaled like shit. I won't be climbing on trails, strictly fire roads.

semaj do you ride up fromme on yours?

It's not too bad at all. It's above par from what you would normally expect from a free ride bike but it is still a free ride bike so it won't be amazing at pedaling like an AM bike

I've been running a DHX Air on my voltage for a couple years now and over all it is a very decent shock. It really is a love or hate relationship as I've heard from many people. It really depends on the type of riding you are doing... for smoother jump oriented trails the dhx air is awesome and handles those well. The pro pedal (as the name implies) will also help you a bit if you do a lot of climbing or have to pedal to a trail. Where I find the shock really struggles is on trails that are more DH oriented. I've tried a lot of different set ups, but I can't seem to stop the back end of the bike from jumping around when the terrain gets rough (this is also due to the short wheel base of the voltage). If you are doing a lot of DH type trails I would say the newer offering from Rock Shox, Cane Creek, X-Fusion etc. as they have improved dampening and can better mimic a coil shock.

Vivid air on mine is prime, running a med tune with some internal tuning (reccomended low tune), feels great
