 The race boxx I recommend seen to have a great influence of purchase (price / quality) on the level of price boxxer level in general has a very low cost and has an excellent operation! Gives less problems that boxxer wc seen working the spring!

 Superb fork. Compression ajustment is superb, spring can be changed, preload can be changed, rebound ajust is very good, quite light, great value. On the other hand they are a little flexy and do require a relube internally every 100hrs of riding. Highly reccommended to all!

 I've had my 08 for the last 2 years. I haven't had a single problem with it. It's a light, solid, simple fork. There are plenty of adjustments, and it's very simple to dial to your liking. I'd recommend it to any DH'er without a big budget

 The Race is a great fork. It is a super fork to start your downhill riding with. It has some good adjustments that can improve your riding, but it isn't so complicated that you spend all your time messing with settings. It can be tuned to suit your weight and riding style, and that's all I need in a fork.

 I have the 2008 version and I have to say I was much more impressed with the reliability of this versus the "Team" incarnation. Minus the second compression adjust, this fork felt smoother over rough stuff and had less maintenance issues.

Unless you really feel the need for that extra adjustment, or you just "need" to have the World Cups, these are the benchmark racing fork to have these days.

 I ride the 2008 Race and its a great fork. I've heard its not a great FR fork but they obviously have't ridden this fork. It only has a couple adjustments so its great for me. I've had this fork for over a year and nothing has gone wrong with it.

 I have had my 2008 Boxxer races since September and all I can say is they are an amazing fork. I had the 2007 model on another bike also. The pros are they feel nice and plush. They are a decent weight at 6.8lb. (My old marzochhi dj's were in that range.). Another great thing about the fork is the price, I picked up mine for around $500. There are no real cons for this fork except it has a little flex and you have to put new oil in frequently but if you keep fresh oil in them they are the best feeling dh fork for the price. I have ridden Rockshox totems, Marzochhi 888s and a manitou. The boxxer outperformed all of them for $100 or more cheaper.

 This fork is awesome for the price, it is very plush, and is surprisingly freerideable, Only has the adjustments that i would need on a fork anyways. the cons are, because i have an older model of the boxxer (2007) that the fork has a bit of flex when you land harshly. but overall for the price, it cannot be beaten.

 Solid fork. Came with my bike and knowing now how its rides I would of bought one if there was another fork on this. Buttery smooth...always a smooth ride. Super basic adjustments, makes it low maintenance or easy if you don't know whats up. For $600 its well worth is.

 I have the RC which take over for the Race/Team models for 2011. I'm a heavy guy and with the right springs in it it is by far the best dual crown I have ever had. I've ran R1's, Jr.T's, and 888; none of them can compare to this fork. This for is super responsive and plush, almost feels bottomless! This fork is the Shizzzzz!

 i have had these for just under a year now and they are fantastic at the time i bought them i had very little cash and its safe to say they were the best value forks there are you can get the feel absolutely perfect on them i have heard people complaining on them being flexy and sticky well im gonna bust that right now these things are awesome. you could complain about a lack of adjust ment but i swear i hardly ever feel that it could do with more. basically these forks are awsome value for money and feel fantastic

 Amazing. My first dual crown. Its awesome. Super smooth and plush. Plows over everything. Surprisingly lightweight. Fairly adjustable. Not as much adjustability of the team or world cup but its heck of a lot of cheap. I would highly recommend. I have an 09 so i don't know how they compare to the 2010's.

 Came stock on my demo. Have ridden boxxers for years. Even this OEM race that came from the factory performs excellent. Go for the team for more adjustment options, but this one is great especially for the price.

 Mint fork. Havnt had any problems with my 2010s yet although they do need a lower lube. 10/10. Compression and Rebound ajustments work like a dream and would recommend this to anyone on a tight budget.

RockShox Boxxer Race (MSRP $675) — downhill fork

Specifications Compare to other Forks

Release Date 2009
Price $675
Weight 2857.63 g
Color Options BoXXer Red, Black, White
Travel 203 mm
Travel - refers to the distance the wheel can move in respect to the frame. Typically measured in millimeters, most forks range from 80 to 203 mm of travel
Spring Coil
Crown Dual
Body Type Magnesium.
Rebound External Rebound
Rebound - is how quick your fork returns to a fully extended position after being compressed. Almost all after-market forks feature external rebound adjustment for easy fine tuning.
Stanchion material 7000 Aluminum
Steer Tube 1.125
Damping Motion Control IS
Damping - The process of absorbing the energy of impacts transmitted through the forks or rear shock during the compression stroke, and absorbing the energy of the spring during the rebound stroke.
DropOut Options Maxle
Compression External Compression
Compression - This is the damping circuit that absorbs the compression energy force on the damper. Compression damping is used to adjust how quickly a fork or rear shock compresses when hitting a bump, and is adjustable on some products. When compression damping is too soft, this condition allows most of the available travel to be used without attaining control of the wheel. When it's adjusted too firmly, the wheel will jump or "dance" about when hitting small bumps, again failing to gain control of the wheel.
