There are a variety of similar products on the market. The DSD kit differs in that it includes valving updates as well. To my knowledge, the RUNT has been patent-pending since at least 2015.

Will this work with Vorsprung Luftekappe?

The Revive is definitely a great option, as we said in our Face Off.

Thanks for the feedback, really interesting to hear your comments about bottom out support and ultimately going back to air. I was asking since I just put a DHX2 on my Kona Process 29. The Process and the Sentinel have a very similar leverage curve so I was interested in how you found it . I had been considering a bigger bottom bumper hence my question.

So far so good for me - after trying a few rates a 550 spring is working well (I'm 88kgs) - general compliance and mid stroke is way better now, with only the occasional bottom out on larger drops to flatter landings. I also have used a longer stroke shock (62.5 from stock 60) to get approx 160mm travel, so probably the extra travel of the process makes the coil work for my local terrain (steep, rocky, "enduro"). I think (like you) I'd struggle with less travel to get the required support without a really stiff spring. Maybe Transition will consider a Sentinel LT for the future

I borrowed this DHX2 to ride on the Sentinel for about a month. The small bump was very good compared to the DPX2 which was to be expected. Ridden as an AM bike, I felt the coil was a viable option for the Sentinel as it really improved the 'trail' ride quality. When traversing towards Enduro and light freeride, I was never able to get the bottom out support I wanted, even with that marshmallow bumper you were mentioning (which came on the shock so I don't know where it came from). Ultimately, a coil could work on the Sentinel depending on riding style. Bad news is it didn't for me and I returned to the stock DPX2 with the largest volume spacer installed.

The Sweep lever adjustment is a combined LSC/HSC compression adjustment that ranges from open to lockout. From what I understand it's identical to the regular GRIP damper found on Fox 36 performance forks. I'll get that updated, thanks!

Noob question –did the GRIP damper in the Z1 change from the original 2018 FOX version? I own a 2018 Performance GRIP fork, and the 'sweep' dial is definitely NOT a LSC adjuster. It behaves more like an overall LSC+HSC adjuster and lockout. (Great little damper, if it had a dedicated...more

Called Push and the ACS coil for the 36 is only compatible with standard 36 CSUs (not the Rhythm found on the Z1 or 36 E-bike version). Called FOX to ask what the specific inner diameter of the Rhythm CSU was and they weren't able to give me any specific measurements. All they said is that the regular 36, rhythm, and E-bike CSUs all have different inner diameters. Although it's a vague response, it answers if the Z1 is compatible with many aftermarket products.
