If you love nothing more than descending and want ultimate bump absorption - this is the shock you need!

Featuring an entirely new chassis and damper, the 2021 DHX2 has had a whole bunch of updates to the internals to make it smoother, more tunable, and with better end-stroke control via the new progressive MCU bottom-out bumper.

It's also easier to install on even more frame designs thanks to a more compact piggyback reservoir.

Who is this for: This is for riders that love nothing more than descending and want the ultimate in traction and predictable suspension performance. It's best suited for use on DH sleds and hard-hitting Enduro bikes.

Spring type: This is a coil spring shock. 2021 models have detents on the spring collar to prevent loosening under light preload conditions

Compression damper adjustments:

  • HSC: 8 clicks
  • LSC: 16 clicks
  • Optional 2-position Open/Firm lever (retains high and low-speed compression adjustment)

Rebound damper technologies: 2021 sees improved high-speed rebound tunability via the addition of VVC (Variable Valve Control)

Rebound damper adjustments:

  • HSR (with VVC): 8 clicks
  • LSC 16 clicks

Pros: Huge potential for tuning with HSC/LSC and HSR/LSR. Coil shocks offer excellent traction, small bump sensitivity, and predictable performance that is unaffected by changes in weather or altitude.

Cons: More adjustment means more potential to totally mess things up. Coil shocks have a small weight penalty compared to air shocks.

Please note: The DHX 2 is supplied WITHOUT spring and WITHOUT hardware.

Silky smooth coil suspension

by -

Have put the DHX2 coil shock on my Evil The Wreckoning and I am now very happy I did: but it has been a journey. First I agonised about which coil shock to get, (and whether I even needed a coil). EG: weight penalty, would it make climbing worse, which spring rate. Finally decided on the DHX2 with lightweight orange spring, based on price, reviews and seeing which pros use this shock. - MUCH cheaper then ElevenSix and EXT Storia - Lighter weight then Cane Creek and ElevenSix - Evil test rider Luke Strobel uses it Installation was piece of cake. Choice of spring. There are online calculators out there to advise which spring rate you need. Found the Fox calculator to be the most accurate, but did end up buying 2 springs. Fox recommended spring rate of 375, another 450, I went with 425 and 400 and found the 400 was perfect. Put the 425 spring on first – just didn't work. Harsh. Now that I have the correct (400) spring it is truly awesome. Small bumps - so SMOOOTH Bigger bumps like gnarly rock gardens: great traction and still smooth. Tuning the LSC/HSC and LSR/HSR has been easy to do on-trail with the provided tool. Did lots of tweaking and recording of settings for the first 3-4 rides, but now happy. The Fox website has some recommendations for base settings for these, but I have modified them quite a bit through trial and error. It climbs just as well as it did with the air shock. I sometimes use the climb lever on fire road climbs, but more often then not don't bother. Am I faster on descents – not by much (yet), but I feel totally in control. Am I faster uphill – yes?? Go figure! Does it jump? (they say coils lessen pop and jumpability). I can't tell any difference between this and the air shock. AND – it looks bling! So in summary Need patience to set it up right. Will have to spend a bit of time getting the compression and rebound settings right for you. Use the Fox web spring calculator, but add a little extra to what they recommend (7% in my case) It's worth it
