X-Fusion Vector DH Rear Shock

5/5 (2 Reviews)

Product Description

The Vector DH is an exciting new shock from X-Fusion. The Vector DH is a larger design overall that improves the strength and durability of the shock. A much needed attribute for today's downhill and extreme long travel applications. The Vector DH has a similar PowerValveAdj technology as the Vector PVA. This feature is the external adjustment of the PowerValve system. By adjusting the damp threshold of the PowerValve, the rider has the ability to fine tune this feature to optimize the performance for specific conditions. This tuning feature is a definite advantage for the competitive rider. The Vector DH also has externally adjustable rebound damping.

Strengths:    Real rebound dampening not just a screw to make you think your adjusting something! Light weight and everything you would expect for the $. Handles like my 05 RM 250 after I got my suspension done by RG3.

Weaknesses:    I ordered a heavy spring for my weight it did not need sag on the ty spring for my weight it is perfect with the adjuster set just tight enough to hold the spring but it made me nervous so I called Sam at the # on the manual and I was set in under 10 minutes.

Bottom Line:   
This shock is what you would expect for the $ on compression but this shock really shines with rebound and rebound dampening! When you hit the studder bumps and know your bike will hold the line, at speed, for the big drop at the end its better than anything else I have ridden on the market.
