The Fox DHX Air 5.0 rear Shock is ideal for All-mountain, Freeride and Downhill use with Boost Valve technology giving the feeling of endless travel and plushness. It has all the performance of a coil shock without the additional weight.
The Fox patented Boost Valve technology has a lot going in its tight little package, Boost Valve provides a feeling of endless travel and plushness like that of a downhill rig, but with with XC pedaling efficiency. With the smaller piggy back camber helping adjust how progressive the shock feels, with the more air put in, the harder it will be to bottom out.
Bottom Out Force Adjust
The Bottom Out Force Adjust controls the air volume in the boost valve. Adjusting all the way in is its lowest volume setting and will make the shock ramp up (get stiffer) late in the travel. Adjusting out, in its high volume setting the shock will ramp up slower through the entire length of the travel creating a more even feel.
ProPedal damping affects the initial part of the compression stroke and is designed to control annoying pedal-induced suspension bob. ProPedal doesn’t block the shock entirely and the entire range of travel is always available to the rider.
Boost Valve damping
The boost valve can be utilized in the beginning of the stroke to achieve ProPedal pedaling efficiency and at the end of the stroke to provide a bottomless feel and confidence inspiring ending stroke control. Throughout the stroke it helps prevent suspension overshoot and unwanted rider-terrain induced motion.
