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 WC, 380 R2c2, Fox 40, DVO Emerald

How do these forks compare? What are the pros/cons of each fork? I'm considering either a 380 or dvo at this point. I'd like to hear about what people think that have actually ridden all of these.Read More »

2012 R2C2 boxxer compression damper glide seal

I was trying to reverse engineer this damper a bit to improve my lsc and hsc, and notice now there is significant oil bypass when I put the damper in and out of the uppers, using pretty heavy oil. Very clearly, this is going to remove damping effectiveness, if the oil is going around the damper. ... Read More »

888 rc3 evo v.2 vs boxxer r2c2 vs. fox 40 R

I know an that there were a lot of threads like this. I'm torn between them. All depends on their prices. I can buy Fox 40 R 2014 for 900$ (new) but without warranty. Or for 1000-1100$ new 888 non ti or r2c2. Also dorado is possible in 1100$ but i prefer coil forks. What is best choice for ... Read More »

Boxxer R2C2 set-up for Freeride?

I took a leap and installed an x-firm spring in my boxxer, but I'm barely getting 20% sag. I'm 200lbs with all my gear on, and will hopefully be down a few pounds come the start of the season...which will lessen the amount of sag I'll be able to get. I'm just wondering if I should spend the extr ... Read More »
