Christopher has a point, that is a heavy bike!

Still, those commenting below that a lot of EWS bikes are in the upper thirties with a race ready tire/suspension setup is something I'd agree with.

In terms of better bang-for-your-buck, would you recommend this over a Spank Vibrocore bar + RevGrips combo?

Great question. Between the Faast Flexx, Spank Vibrocore, and OneUp bars, the XC Gear stem, and RevGrips, there are all of sudden several ways of addressing similar things in the MTB space. It might be time for another Vital MTB Face Off to really feel out the differences...

I don't recall any other shock having a hydraulic bottom out control, so no you can't get any shock to behave the same way that this shock does. Can you improve an existing shock by getting it tuned properly for your bike? Yes (but also the vast majority of stock shocks are actually...more

Zach had a different shock on the Zerode prior to this, so I am sure he is comparing how the pedal chatter felt before swapping over to the Arma. If he had pedal chatter with the previous shock but less pedal chatter with the Arma, then it would be due to the shock.

Point ignored not missed. I said for comparison sake, because it is worth mentioning. No not head to head or apples to apples. Tires help yes and for the record that was supergravity casing vs wtb tough casing. But running back and forth between the ohlins to the ext, the ext handles...more

True, only the clock could differentiate, but the whole point of a review is for an opinion. Take it or leave it are the options.

How do you regard every shock review you read? We don’t have a set standard for bike to test against, every review is subjective.

Hands down best shock I’ve ever ridden. Been running one on my TR11 most the summer, floated between a 450 and 475 spring. The clicks are easily discernible and the HBC is a super nice feature when switching springs. The small bump sensitivity of this shock is second to none while...more

Yes we do. Your runt will ship with shims to get the appropriate rebound tune for your weight. Our instructions are posted on line to do so. We recommend running the compression all the way open. The runt has enough mid stroke support to keep your fork from diving. We don't need to...more

No the Runt has two air chambers that are never in communication with each other. This is what allows it to be so adjustable.

Was it the DRCV shock that blew or was it the Full Floater that blew???
