FOX’s New Shock, the DPX2

Easily accessed adjusters.

This shock is aiming to combine the user friendly three-position compression adjustment of the DPS shock with the low-pressure damper design found the Float x2, a shock that has excellent damping control but which lacks truly relevant on-the-fly adjustability.

Performance series DPX2 shocks will get the usual Open, Medium and Firm damping mode, while the Factory version also scores 10-click compression adjustment of the Open mode for more precise tuning.

The shorter reservoir should help clear water bottles in tight frames.

Compared to the Float X, the dimensions of the top eyelet are smaller and the reservoir a little shorter, which should help it clear water bottles in tighter frames, a common issue when trying to squeeze a piggy-back shock in. The adjusters, particularly the rebound adjuster, are much easier to access too (tuning the rebound was a nightmare on the Float X).

The latest iteration of the EVOL air can.

We absolutely loved the performance of the DPS shock and the new EVOL air can when it was released a couple of years back (read our full review here), so it’s great to see that tech incorporated into a high volume air shock format.

Retail pricing of the new shock in Australia will be $829, with availability from mid-July 2017.
