Pros: Plush, easy installation. smooth

Recommendation: This is a great shock as I have used it. I have ridden on one a few different times on different styles of bikes. It is very smooth over little bumps, but I have not hit any types of big drops to test the big hit ability.

Model/Year: 2011

Pros: Weight
Easy to setup
Pro pedal

Cons: None

Recommendation: This is the best rear shock I have ever used. The propedal feature is spot on too. Easy to setup and plush is the key to this shock. Worth every penny.

Pros: Pro pedal is awesome. Takes the big hits and is stiff on the climbs. Smooth action and is air adjustable. Lock out can be worked on the fly.

Cons: none

Recommendation: This is the perfect xc shock. Upgraded my frame and this came on it. Love this shock. Good with the small bumps and the big hits.

Pros: Good shock for the price. The 3 are great for change of trail but could wipe out trying to find it.

Cons: Little change with switch

December 10, 2010
Pros: Light and an industry standard.

Cons: Sometimes the damping seems over whelmed. Rebound can sometimes be unpredictable during long runs.

Recommendation: Industry standard shock. What all other shocks are judged against.

December 10, 2010
Pros: Light, easy to set up, idiot proof controls. I've ridden them on everything from 100-160mm travel bikes and it's felt at home on them all. Really a great rear shock.

Cons: If anything the bottom out feature on the DHX Air is nice... but really not necessary for most riders.

Recommendation: Best rear shock for most riders.

Pros: Amazing performance!

Cons: The price.

Recommendation: This shock basically offers the same amazing performance of it's cheaper Float R brother, but with increased travel adjustability including full lock out. This lockout feature is so useful to have at your disposal, so if you can afford it, get this shock. Otherwise if you're on a budget, get the Float R.

Pros: everything. This is a terrific component. easily adjusted and lots of cussion on the trails

Cons: needs a pro pedal remote system for easy on the fly engagement

Recommendation: performs extremely well on my Diamondback mission Three with the Knuckle Box. Eats up the trail like there is nothing under me. The pro pedal feature is great for heading up the climbs and on the flats.
