        Comments about X-Fusion Shox X-Fusion Velvet RL2 140mm Fork:

        I put this fork on my Mount Vision build. I am 215 lbs, and have been riding on this fork for the past 11 months. I haven't had it serviced yet as x fusion recommends servicing it every year, but it feels just as good as new. This fork is on my only mtb, and I ride singletrack nearly 3 times a week.

        I belive it has 30 clicks of rebound adjustment, and it took me some time to dial in the proper feel with a wide range to choose from. Overall, its great fork with at a reasonable price that can handle skecthy terrain and technical descents.

          Comments about X-Fusion Shox X-Fusion Velvet RL2 140mm Fork:

          For the price, this is a top notch performer. Available in both straight and tapered steerers as well as offering a variety of dropouts (both 9mm QR and 15mm through-axles) and 650B compatible pretty much out of the box, the Velvet makes an amazing fit pretty much everywhere. The fork offers around 30 different rebound damping tunes all with the click of a dial, and each one just different enough from the last to be noticable.

          It's lightweight, well built, and extremely user servicable. Also offers internal travel adjust in 20mm increments from 80-140mm all via push-rod travel stop. X-Fusion also offers 10mm travel spacers for those who want to go lower.

          The only problems I had with mine before selling it were that the compression damping doesn't have a fully adjustable setup- it's either locked out or runs at X-Fusion's stock tune- and that the locknuts under the fork have a terribly bad habit of stripping the threads on the damper/air spring shaft if you're not careful. Be patient and treat it right and it'll treat you right.

          Comments about X-Fusion Shox X-Fusion Velvet RL2 140mm Fork:

          This fork performs beautifully. For the price you pay, you get one amazing fork. It provides a very plush ride, and the travel ramps up very nicely without ever feeling as though it has bottomed.
