Six months on a 11 WC boxxer, it is a wonderful fork. It is a bit smoother than the '10 WC, but I loved the '10 as well.
I have ridden the WCs back to back with the new 40s and 888 evos, I'll take the Boxxer WC every time.

another month ....so hows it going? What kind of settings you running?
Still loving the fork, and it is getting more time on it than I expected. Most of my runs have been on Holbert, some on Geronimo.

Currently, I am running 55psi, 2 clicks of HSC, 1 click of LSC, 11 clicks of ESR, and 10 clicks of BSR, 0 turns of BO. These settings are very close to the SRAM recommendations. I prefer a slightly slower rebound. I have reset all settings to factory spec for this weekend for comparison.

The fork destroys the square edge hits we have, and eats up Holbert like nothing I have ever experienced. And at 5.8lbs cut, weight is not an unreal. The air spring is perfect. It is nice to be able to add or drop 1-2 psi to find that exact spring rate you are looking for. The air spring is very linear, yet ramps nicely. I have yet to use all the travel.

I will be hitting NRA next week as I have yet to jump with it to see how it will hold. I suspect it will be trouble free.

Nice I get mine monday.Can't wait. Never ridden a boxxer for more than 10 min. Always been on my 888rc2x and 08 40. Doubt I will ride anything as good as the rc2x was but hoping to get closer than the 40 was.

MIne is 2010 world cup,

I re-oil and re-lube everything before installation.

It absorbs square edges very nicely, no kick back.

It absorbs 30 cm drop ( slow jump from high curb at my neighbor's garden ) very well too,..... about 80pct shock travel used.

Riding over rough roads still feel bumpy on the handlebar, well..... I guess its normal for air spring ..... I can live with that.

btw , how many milimeter do you guys have left in your boxxer ? ....... my boxxer has 192mm left on the stanchion, not the advertised 200mm.

Okay first Impressions are very very good. My rebound setting was factory set,running 50psi, 1/2 turn BO, 1 click ,low speed 2 clicks high speed. Anyways I was running a 08 40rc2 prior and imediately I could feel a difference. After my first test run I was grinning ear to ear. It ALMOST felt like my old works888rc2x. I felt less feedback on my hands, it tracked amazingly, blazed thru loose small choppy stuff and took them nice trail rock drops like a sponge. Can't wait to break it in and fully dial it in . So far I was using 7" regularly so a lil less pressure and a bit of high and low speed it should be a sweet point for PHX Shutttle trails. Oh and stiction seemed less than my 40 also

Glad to hear you are liking it. I am digging mine more and more. The ability to change the air spring is huge IMO. No more having to work around springs.

I would suggest dialing back the BO all the way. The air spring seems to have plenty of ramp without it. We hit NRA today for the first time in 9 months and the WC was amazing. It soaked everything up, and saving a pound of weight on the front makes a huge difference. Making the bike change directions was much easier.

I have no diving issues. Cornering issues are LSC events, so add some LSC and see if that helps.
