Strengths:    when working its can be as good as a fox 40. light for a spring fork. look good. feels a lot better than the 2010 boxxer team i had last year. user freindly rebuilt.

Weaknesses:    Rebound shaft broke. i couldnt adjust the high speed rebound anymore so i changed it. When rebuilting, an air pressure is made inside the forks compression side and results in a stiffer spring rate making the fork less sensible to small bumps. screwing the top cap when the fork is compress will make the fork feel like it has a negative spring and will feel a lot nicer.

Bottom Line:   
i wouldnt pay the extra for the r2c2 i would just buy the basic rc version. the extra adjustments are not that usefull and the rc's rebound shaft wont break like mine did. or with a bigger budjet i would buy a fox 40

Strengths:    Great adjustability with its Motion Control DH and beginning and ending stroke rebound, you can easily adjust the way you want you fork setup to be. The r2c2 also features drop stop in case you feel you are reaching bottom out to quick too easily or too hard. All these adjustments are hand friendly, no tools needed. Another strength of the r2c2 is the maxile lite DH, which really keeps things stiff for even the toughest downhill course. Better price than other Boxxer models.

Weaknesses:    The only weakness I could find in the r2c2 is adjusting the fork for your weight. The fork comes with a standerd red coil for people 160-180 pounds. If you need a larger spring rate or you need to go down for somebody weighing less, then it's not all that easy to change. I had to order a new coil for around $30 and replace and install it in the fork. Unlike the r2c2 the world cup models feature a single air shrader valve too adjust the air rate for your weight, by just hooking up a shock pump and adjusting the air to your desiered psi.

Bottom Line:   
A great fork for downhill and can stand up too a lot. Great quality.

Boxxer r2c2, problem?

The boxxer r2c2 on my bike doesn't act any differently no matter the rebound, comp and bottom out settings. I can turn all or any of the knobs all the way clockwise, bounce the fork, turn all or any of the knobs all the way counter-clockwise, and there's no change in its behavior. The bike and fork ...
