Hello i own a fox dhx 5 air 2010 model that is on a Canyon torque playzone 6.0 . I recently compared it with the X Fusion 02RLA that is on a Specialized fsr xc comp 2010 model.
I noticed that with the same sag set for ex: 25% of travel and full open the rebound valve the xfusion is by far faster in the compression and in decompresion proccess. When we riding i am seeing the xfusion moving more accurate when passing from the same path with the same speed. Also when i am decending some stairs with the dhx air (canyon bike) i noticed that the suspension cant follow as fast as the xfusion do and i have lot of vibrations same when running on rocky road .How do you find this ? Is this normal ?

What are your shock settings in regards to damping ?. To start I would......

Open up the bottom out boost valve all the way (counter clockwise)
reduce the boost valve pressure to minimum.
Turn the propedal lever off.
Open up the rebound all the way.

If it's still too slow, get a different shock.

Thanks you for the help.
My setting are:
The boost valve has 3 lines. I have it in the middle of the 2 first lines.. --> 1...(*)...2......3
The boost presure is set to 140 psi of min 125psi to max 200psi
The rebound i open all the way..
It is by far slower than the xfusion shock. My bike is brand new and has this shock on it.
Canyon torque playzone 6.0

Thanks in advance..

All new shocks & forks need some "break in" miles to loosen up a bit,. Maybe get some more time on the DHX before condemning it?
