Less friction, more flow
Fueled by years of RAD development, X2 hits the sweet spot with its a linear damping profile, revised oil flow, and redesigned seals on DHX2 and FLOAT X2 shocks. The wide adjustment range gives riders the support and grip that the trail demands, as well as a more plush and open feel in the initial travel.
Available on the FLOAT X2 and DHX2 shocks, the X2 2-position Open/Firm lever retains high and low speed compression adjustment.
Air Transfer Port System
Our EVOL linear spring curve gives forks and shocks plushness off the top, extra mid-stroke support, and more tunable bottom-out progression, allowing riders to tap into the ideal pairing of front and rear-end feel.
EVOL Air Sleeve
The lightweight one-piece EVOL air sleeve was designed for each shock size (imperial, trunnion, and metric) to balance internal forces and has maximized bushing overlap to reduce friction during "real world" forces like side-loading and twisting.
The Rod Valve System (RVS) provides a more seamless damping transition when absorbing small to large impacts, resulting in faster system response, more control, and less harshness.
GENUINE KASHIMA COAT
Kashima's distinctive gold color is backed by its high performance attributes—properties that provide an exceptionally smooth feel and extreme durability.
