FAQ SUSPENSION UPGRADES

FOX

How can I improve my Fox 40?

  • Damper:
    • Fox Grip 2: this is the top of the line damper from Fox, with high and low speed compression adjustment as well as high and low speed rebound adjustment.
    • Öhlins TTX18: this is Öhlins' top of the line damper, same as on the Öhlins DH38 fork but made compatible with the Fox 40.
  • Air spring: MRP's Ramp Control allows external adjustment of the air volume.

How can I improve my Fox 36?

  • Damper:
    • Fox Grip 2: all Fox 36 from 2015 and after are compatible with the Fox Grip 2 damper. Grip 2 is the top of the line damper from Fox, with high and low speed compression adjustment as well as high and low speed rebound adjustment.
    • Vorsprung Fractive: Fox 36 forks with FIT4 damper are compatible with Vorsprung's Fractive tuning system. This is a high performance compression piston delivered with 5 possible tunes.
  • Air spring: most Fox 36 are compatible with Vorsprung's Luftkappe and MRP's Ramp Control:
    • The Luftkappe increase the size of the negative air chamber to provide more reactivity, grip, comfort and mid-stroke support.
    • MRP's Ramp Control allows external adjustment of the air volume.
    • It is not recommended to combine both the Luftkappe and MRP Ramp Control, except if the fork is running 30mm shorter than its maximum travel.
    • Vorsprung Luftkappe is compatible with most Fox 36 except from 2015 to now except for the Fox Rhythm fork (including Marzocchi Z1, which is sharing the same chassis) and TALAS forks.
  • Coil spring upgrade: most Fox 36 are compatible with the Vorsprung Smashpot coil system. This replaces the original air spring with a fully-guided coil spring with integrated hydraulic top-out control with external adjustment. Almost Fox 36 are compatible, including Fox Rhythm fork but compatibility is limited for Fox 36 E-Bike: some of these forks have the internal diameter of a 34 forks and are not compatible with Smashpot; other Fox 36 E-Bike are not fully compatible and cannot take the biggest springs. For Fox 36 E-Bike fork owners who want to make their fork compatible we recommend swapping the CSU for a Fox Rhythm/Marzocchi Z1 CSU, which is compatible, affordable and proven to be strong enough for E-Bikes.

Other upgrades that we can provide:

  • Marzocchi has a coil kit for Z1 forks that is also compatible with Fox 36 Rhythm,
  • Fox's Grip 1 damper can also be used as an upgrade for older forks,
  • the Andreani / Öhlins piston kit is a rebound piston upgrade with 2 possible tunes,
  • WSS's high flow piston kit is available for FIT4 cartridges.

Other notable upgrades that we do not offer:

  • Push is selling the ACS3 coil conversion kit, which is an hybrid air/coil spring system that compatible with all Fox 36 from 2015 and after, except for Fox 36 Rhythm and E-Bike forks.

How can I improve my Fox 34?

  • Damper:
    • Fox FIT4 and Grip dampers are compatible with most Fox 34,
    • WSS's high flow piston kit is available for FIT4 cartridges, 
    • the Andreani / Öhlins piston kit is a rebound piston upgrade with 2 possible tunes. 
  • Air spring: just like the Fox 36, Fox 34 is compatible with Vorsprung's Luftkappe and MRP Ramp Control.  Compatibility for the Luftkappe is detailed here.

How can I improve my Fox 32?

The large number of variations of the Fox 32 makes it difficult to create upgrades so there is less choice here than with Fox 34 or 36.

  • Damper:
    • relatively recent Fox 32 are compatible with Fox FIT4 and Grip dampers,
    • WSS's high flow piston kit is available for FIT4 cartridges, 
    • the Andreani / Öhlins piston kit is a rebound piston upgrade with 2 possible tunes.

ÖHLINS

How can I improve my original Öhlins RXF36?

The Öhlins RXF36 TTX18 damper, the same as on the new RXF36 M.2 fork, is backward compatible with the orignal Öhlins RXF36.

 

ROCKSHOX

    How can I improve my Rockshox Boxxer?

    Rockshox Boxxer upgrades is all about dampers upgrades:

    • Rockshox Charger 2.1: this is the top of he line damper from Rockshox. Compatible with Rockshox Boxxer C chassis, sold starting 2018. If your fork has a Charger 2 damper then 2.1 is slightly higher performance and also more reliable.

    How can I improve my Rockshox Lyrik/Pike/Yari/Revelation?

    Rockshox's 35 mm Enduro/All Mountain/Trail forks have a large number of possible upgrades. The Lyrik and Yari share the same chassis, so upgrades that depends on chassis fitments are the same on both. The same applies for Pike and Revelation.

      • Rockshox Charger 2.1 upgrade is available for Lyrik/Pike/Yari/Revelation (except remote-control versions); at this point in 2020 it is a recommended upgrade for owners of older Charger 1 cartridges. There is 2 versions:
        • RCT3: 3-position compression adjustment + low speed compression adjustment + rebound adjustment.
