DT Swiss XR 180 Rear Shock

XR 180

The XM suspension allows you to build a speedy racebike as well as a comfortable All-Mountain bike. Lower weight and increased stiffness are the traits that make the XM components so versatile. Long climbs are easily conquered with the fork locked and lowered and the shock locked, while all the plush travel makes the descent a joyride.

Strength:

When it works ,it works ok as far as i can tell

Weakness:

Damping failed 4 times in 6 months

it seems that this Damper is not suitable for the Endorfin Vp4 frame, or i had a Monday morning product from Swiss
After 4 repairs i gave up on it ,and the Dt-Swis dealer gave me a SSD210L to use for a while to test it
This one had no problems ,so i agreed to leave it like this
Apparently newer isn't always better
