fairly light weight for a coil with SLS spring


The damper on mine was squeaking a bit when I first got it but it stopped after about 2 weeks.

This is my first coil shock so I can't really compare it to the other players but here's my 2 cents. Installed on a Yeti SB6c coming from a FLOAT X. I typically ride in the Pisgah area around Brevard and frequent the big boy trails (Farlow, Black Mountain, Bennett Gap). I was bottoming out the FLOAT X and got tired of having to screw with air pressure moving up in down in elevation so I opted for the DHX2 (450lb spring #165 rider) vs the air version. There is almost a .5 lb weight penalty but man it is so worth it. The bike feels phenomenal on the climbs and small bump compliance feels far superior to any air shock I've ridden. It's upped my DH game big time on the aforementioned trails.

Does not last, I was getting top out noise after a few weeks of riding it. They also removed the ability to put more air pressure in it so now its harder to get dialed in for your weight and style of riding.

Hi my bike is only about a couple months old and after a few weeks of riding I was getting top out noise and now my rebound is not working even when its set to full close position (all the way clock wise until it stops). I have both rebound knobs fully closed and it does not slow the shock down.

My riding weight is about 230lbs and I'm using a fox 600lb steel spring because fox only goes up to a 550lb for their orange super light spring.

I'm hoping that Fox will exchange it for the Float X2 but most likely they will not so I'm going to sell this one after it gets repaired.

The last version of the Fox DHX was a lot better to get dialed in and it seemed to have better bottom out resistance and it never gave me any problems.

As of the date of this review Fox is currently back ordered on the Float X2 because everyone wants them, I called every mail order store in the US. I've even tried eBay but no one has them in stock, Fox says another month.

If your looking for a new shock I would recomend the Float X2, word at the bike parks is that they are really good. The top pro rider Aaron Gwin uses it on his YT bike. Also there is a big weight savings if your a bigger rider that has to use a heavier spring.

Good Luck with whatever you choose.
