Date Reviewed: January 2, 2010

Strengths:    No pro pedal, supple, smooth and can take the big hits. Separate high and low compression knobs and a very effective boost valve adjustment.

Weaknesses:    Wish you did not need an allen key to adjust the compression knobs.

Bottom Line:   
I have to say I have been disappointed with fox(40, dhx 5) in the past but they seem to have delivered the goods on this shock. It is very sensitive and can still handle big hits and there are no more nagging pro pedal affects. Separate adjustment knobs and I love the redesigned boost valve. Larger diameter shaft and more oil flow keep this thing super consistent. I have been waiting for this thing and I dont think you will be disappointed.

Strengths:    Separate High and Low Compression adjustments.
All the adjustments you need...none you dont.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
Lots of adjustment to fine tune your ride gives this shock the edge over the previous DHX models. The RC4 gets rid of Pro Pedal which is completely useless on a downhill specific shock anyway. Having separate High and Low compression adjustment is really handy, but may make things a bit tricky for people new to shock tuning. Unlike other shocks I have tried, when you make an adjustment on the RC4 you actually feel a difference. All in all buy this shock, Im a heavy rider (230) and this takes big drops without a hitch...way to go Fox.

Fox DHX RC4 Spring retainer too big?

Does anybody have a picture up close of the bottom spring retainer "c clip" on an RC4. I bought one used from Pink Bike, and the c clip didn't make it..Fox sent me a new one yesterday, but it seems to be the wrong size. Seems like a really loose fit to me. There's a pretty sizeable gap that doesn't ... Read More »

Fox DHX RC4 bottoming out

Is it normal for DH rear shock to bottom out? Can it take the beating? Would spring rate help? Through my limited experience, rebound and HSC can be adjusted to avoid bottoming out... Any ideas? I am using a DHX RC4Read More »

Fox DHX RC4: bottom out adjuster stuck

I picked up a second hand DH bike recently and am trying to get the suspension dialed in. I'm having trouble moving the bottom out adjuster dial. I put a 3 mm allen key in one of the perimeter holes and the dial just won't turn. Could it be seized? Has anyone else had this issue? I don't want ... Read More »
