Vivid Air R2C
Introducing an obscenely lightweight and totally new air spring system built to tackle World Cup downhill competitions, big mountain riding and aggressive all-mountain excursions. Dropping a whopping 400g from the Vivid Coil design, the Vivid Air’s unique fade-free performance ensures the entire run is smooth and controlled, right down to the last drop. The supple and consistent feel of a coil shock, with the adjustability, tunability and unparalleled weight savings of an air shock—the Vivid Air redefines downhill performance.

    * Intended Use: DH Race, FR
    * Solo Air Spring
    * External beginning and ending stroke rebound adjustment and low-speed comprsssion adjustment
    * Hot Rod thermal compensation maintains rebound rate from the beginning to the end of the run
    * 530g
    * Includes Shock Pump 


Note: Reducers/mounting hardware is NOT included. A kit is sometimes, but not always needed, depending on your frame and the type of rear shock you are replacing.

Comments about Rockshox Vivid Air R2C:

Just finished my 12 km light DH with Vivid Air (First ride) yesterday, whereby previously i spent with my DHX Air.
- Drops, Vivid Air perfectly beats DHX Air (8 to 5)
- Jumps, Vivid Air stabilizes my take off and landing (8 to 7)
- Cornering, I think i need to re - dial in my Vivid Air (so far my cornering still flows nicely with my DHX Air) (6 to 8 )
- Full speed at rock garden and extreme descending, I think i need to re - dial in my Vivid Air (so far it is indifferent with my DHX Air) ( 7 to 7)
- Consistency of performance for 12km, Vivid Air perfectly beats DHX Air (8 to 4) --- is it because of Hot Rod?

Conclusion: I still required more benefits from Vivid Air compare to DHX Air, since it costs higher than DHX Air
