Vivid Air R2C
Tipping the scales 400 grams lighter than the Vivid Coil, the new Vivid Air is so obscenely light weight, its destined to give other downhill shocks a body image complex. But don’t let its trim waistline fool you. This is no lightweight. With an all-new air spring system, this shock was built to take on the toughest courses on the World Cup circuit, combining the consistent, supple feel of a coil shock, with the adjustability, tuning, and unparalleled weight savings of an air shock. The result? A shock that sets a new standard for downhill performance.

Engineered For The Elite, the new Vivid conquers several once-thought-impossible engineering feats. Technologies like Counter Measure, which reduces the breakaway force of the shock to virtually zero pounds, transforming small bumps in to traction-generating performance.
Dual Flow Adjust
DFA’s kind of like Glam Metal. Two things you’d never think could go together, but somehow work like magic. Let’s say you’re riding a course with both monster drops and lots of braking bumps. Convention says you have to adjust your fork to handle one or the other. RockShox DFA says no, use its dual independent damping circuits to tune it to handle both. Absorbing the big hits while staying plush through the small stuff, like makeup and metal.
Who doesn't want more available wheel travel for successive hits? The Rapid Recovery System allows the shock to recovery faster between consecutive bumps, letting the wheel track the ground with greater precision. This more active suspension system, doesn’t pack up and enables the bike to ride in a higher and softer part of the spring rate. Rapid Recovery gives the rider access to more available wheel travel, bump after bump, to achieve a smoother and more controlled ride.
