I have a Boxxer World Cup on a VPFree and was out having fun when doing a dowmhill jump (nothing Pro) but pretty large... hit the first jump then the second jump with a little to much speed the over shot the transition landed pretty flat completely compressed the fork hard even though the landing wasn't nose heavy... then over the bars I went. What seemed to have happen was I blew the air out of the fork..... no oil , no mess, just lost pressure. once home I added air to the fork and all seems great. has anyone had the same issue... Not a great feeling thinking it may happen again​

I have NEVER heard of that complaint! You might want to send that in to RockShox and have them check it out, must have blown a solo-air valve or something. Was the fork stuck down after? would the stanchions come back out if you lifted them up or was there negative pressure?

Boxxer issue

The fork didn't stick and I didn't realize there was a problem until we took off down the hill and I / the bike was all over the place, at first I just thought I hit may head to hard and just could ride then after almost going over the bars again I check the fork and it felt like a pogo stick…. I had to add air and adjust the rebound to make it feel right again..

no e-mail

Probably a broken base plate.

SRAM doesn't have an e-mail address.

Kind of a bummer but probably works out better for everyone.

Give them a call - 312-664-8800 (off their website) if you want but they'll just tell you to take it to a local shop. Probably best to start at your shop anyways.

Good luck
