Fox DHX 5 Air Shock - First Ride: 2010 Santa Cruz Carbon Nomad - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

160mm of VPP travel is handled by the Fox DHX Air shock. The shock features adjustable air spring, Boost Valve, Pro Pedal and rebound adjustment.

I've heard mixed reviews about the performance of the DHX Air on VPP bikes, so you'll be hearing my thoughts on it in the long-term review. My first ride was a fairly buffed-out piece of singletrack with a fire-road climb out, so there wasn't a lot of pressure on the suspension to perform.
