Ive tried coil conversions with RC2 and FIT4 3-pos FOX dampers, and curiously I find the 3-pos damper works best, as you can toggle between open and mid for different tracks, and may be with only 2 springs, you get worlds better performance than with air..cheers

Loic and Finn switch to Maxxis in 2019 and dominate. Gwin, Mulally, Moir switch to Kenda, not so much.

Exactly, Chris should step up and lobby to make these things coherent... not performance enhancement + needed for treatment is a no brainer...
