  • NEW graphics
  • NEW chassis & damper
  • NEW high-flow main piston
  • Improved high-speed rebound tunability


Product Details

Featuring an entirely new chassis and damper, enhanced tunability, smoother action, and a new MCU bumper for progressivity and end-stroke control - the all-new DHX2 is ready to race straight out of the gate.

N.B. Price is for damper only - Spring and mounting hardware must be purchased separately.

Springs: SLS Spring & Steel Spring.


  • NEW graphics.
  • NEW chassis & damper.
  • Improved bearing ratio for metric sizes.
  • NEW detents on spring collar to prevent loosening under light preload conditions.
  • NEW high-flow main piston.
  • NEW MCU bumper for increased end stroke progression and bottom out control.
  • Matching 8-click HSC and HSR adjustment on Grip2 forks and X2 shocks.
  • Reduced friction.
  • Improved high-speed rebound tunability via addition of VVC (Variable Valve Control).
  • Increased control and decreased harshness via linear damping.
  • Steel outer body and finned inner body for improved structural rigidity and reduced hysteresis.
  • Ultra-low friction, highly durable damper shaft finish.
  • Independent firm mode circuit – firmer lockout than previous DHX2.
  • Reduced length reservoir for better fit on more frames.

The new X2 family changes everything, including the game.

Q: Why did the outer body on the DHX2 change from to aluminum to steel? Isn't steel heavy?

A: Steel has a much higher modulus of elasticity…it stretches less than aluminum of equal wall thickness under high pressure. This allows for faster pressure responses to shaft motion leading to less hysteresis. Less hysteresis equals more grip and control.

Q: Are different MCU bumpers available?

A: The DHX2 and FloatX2 both use different MCU bumpers but each is specific to each shock model and cannot be interchanged. There is only one size of bumper available or each model. Additional tuning is handled via spring rate, spring volume, compression, and rebound.

Q: Why don't the new shocks have RVS anymore?

A: We replaced RVS with VVC. VVC offers greater tunability.

Q: The new shocks have an independent Firm Mode Circuit, what does that mean?

A: With the change to VVC, we were also able to make the 2-position switch on its own circuit, making for a notably firmer "lockout" and more efficient climbing as compared to the prior shocks. The firm mode tune no longer has any influence on the open mode tune; they're now completely independent.

Q: DHX2, why did we switch from tri-nitride on the DHX2 damper shaft?

A: Shaft finish and seal design go hand-in-hand, we went to a new low-friction seal for 2021 and through extensive testing we found that a hard chrome shaft coating performed best with the new seal, providing the lowest friction and longest durability.

Q: Why does the DHX2 have detents on the spring preload collar?

A: Ideally, spring preload should be as light as possible. The detents allow the preload collar to be set just snug enough to hold the spring in place without the collar backing off due to movement and vibrations that occurs while riding. If more than a few turns of preload is needed then it is better to upgrade to a firmer spring.
