FOX PN: 978-01-014

The FOX DHX2 damper has notable improvements in 2021. Coil shocks are regaining popularity across a variety of platforms. Some have linkage designed to accommodate the more linear coil spring performance, such as the Yeti SB165. Other riders simply prefer less ramp than the air shock options. Not sure which is for you? Chat with our team about your riding and setup.

Want to learn more about coil spring tuning? Read our blog on Coil Spring Tuning Basics. You’ll learn how different springs can cross over depending on pre-load, sag and ramp.
