Video: Vorsprung on Understanding Advanced Bike Geometry - Part 2
Just estimated it as an arbitrary figure for the sake of comparison, but yeah spacers and bar rise.

Vorsprung Announces Smashpot Coil Conversion Kit
@Trouterspace: compared to the differences it makes vs the stock spring, with the Smashpot the spring rate is linearised further than the Luftkappe (more supple initially, more mid stroke support), no friction, longer service life, externally adjustable bottomout, no seals to mess with or wear out. The only real downsides are cost and weight. Value for money - the Luftkappe is extremely hard to beat, it's relatively cheap, weighs next to nothing and it makes a substantial difference. Outright suspension performance - the Smashpot wins.

Coil forks don't have negative springs as such. There's a small topout spring to prevent noise due to topout impact, but its effect anywhere but right at topout is zero. Negative springs in the conventional sense are only needed where you'd otherwise have a highly preloaded system (eg pressurised air).

UK price is up to the dealers themselves. Price before tax will be comparable, but you do have to add VAT over there.

Vorsprung Announces Smashpot Coil Conversion Kit
@thenotoriousmic: yep, at fully open its effect is pretty close to zero.

Vorsprung Announces Smashpot Coil Conversion Kit
@thenotoriousmic: up to the fork manufacturer but basically if they see something has been modified then they are within their rights to void the warranty. Changing from a Lyrik to a 36 or vice versa requires a new foot stud assembly and a new top cap. Top caps are $30CAD, foot stud assemblies will be somewhere around $80 but pricing has not yet been finalised on those as we don't yet have them available separately.

@stormracing: their kit is integrated into their damper system, which is pretty cool, but total system cost including the damper cartridge is $700USD ($925CAD) and the total range of spring rates covers a variation of 8% (48lbs/in to 52lbs/in). The hydraulic anti bottoming system is also not adjustable nor a shimmed valve, and effective over a shorter range of travel, basically meaning higher forces. Their damper cartridges are good though despite the cost and weight.
