Unlimited Tuning Options

The Good:

Tons of options with tuning, climb switch, consistency through stroke

The Bad:

Tons of options with tuning, weight (worth it though)

Overall Review:

Rode 2 seasons on the climb switch version of this shock pairs with a Transition, and transformed the bike into a mini downhill bike that was predictable with loads of grip. The unlimited tuning options can be viewed as a good or bad thing. Some people are more set and forget vs the opposite end of fiddling and tweaking with suspension based style or location of riding. I fall into the former category and the shock still worked great. I did find myself adding or subtracting some rebound dampening depending on where I rode, but the base tunes found on their site are a good initial start based on leverage ratios. The climb switch I found was great as it didn't completely lock out the shock but rather was firm with a little give for grip. Pair the shock with a Valt or Ti coil and you have a small weight penalty that is completely worth the predictability and grip of a coil shock.
