Hello

changed from Monarch+ to Vivid (216x63) and i am curious how the aircan setup is between those 2? Both are newer model with M tune.

used to run 4 rings in Monarch+ which should be half of what is allowed (8).

In Vivid i have currently none, how many rings are similar there? Maximum is 12 rings, half would be 6. I couldnt find any air spring curve of Vivid.

Stack in Vivid seems to be very stiff (4 times than old model) but valving has also huge holes. Reminds me of Charger1 which came out one year after.

Has anyone fiddled with shims on newer vivid? L tune seems to be only 15% lighter.

Is it possible that bottom out bumper on Vivid air is a bit too hard or did i had too much oil in there? I never reached last 2mm of travel but travel before was easy even on moderate drops.

I can tell you that my tues came with vivid M compression. It was crap. Totally! Now im using L tune without 0,15 shims. Im only 68kg. When I get it properly tested in bikepark will let you know.

Thanks for sharing info about L tune!
