FAQ

Q: IF THE DPX2 WAS SO GOOD, WHY DID YOU GO BACK TO A MONOTUBE DESIGN?

A: Rather than thinking of the Float X as a replacement for the DPX2, think of it as a scaled down, lightweight version of the Float X2 with a feature set aimed squarely at the trail category. The Float X features a large piston and large air volume for a wider range of tuneability on more frames.


Q: WHY DOES THE SHOCK REQUIRE LESS AIR PRESSURE THAN THE DPX2 TO ACHIEVE SAG?

A: It has a larger piston area, which means less air pressure to achieve the same spring force.


Q: WHY IS THIS A 2-POS LEVER, WHEN THE DPX2 HAD A 3-POS LEVER?

A: We found we could make a higher performing, more tunable shock by only having a two-position lever. If you are looking for a three-position lever, the DPS is still available in 3-pos.


Q: WHY ARE THERE DIFFERENT LENGTH RESI'S ON DIFFERENT TRAVEL SHOCKS?

A: The reservoirs are optimized for each size, based on the amount of oil that is displaced during compression.


Q: HOW DO I KNOW IF THIS SHOCK WILL FIT MY BIKE?

A: Please consult your bike manufacturer or local bike shop for fitment notes.


Q: WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS FOR VOLUME SPACERS?

A: Air volume is now more adjustable than ever before. The volume can be adjusted in 0.1 increments: -0.2, -0.4, -0.6, -0.8, -1.0 You can add the additional 0.1 spacer to any of the above options. To determine which volume spacer is best for your shock and bike combination, please consult your bike frame manufacturer.


Q: WHY NO IMPERIAL SIZES?

A: Metric shocks offer a higher degree of bushing overlap than Imperial, which enables us to produce higher performing/more durable shocks. The industry is also moving away from Imperial shocks in general. The Float X and DHX are not available in imperial sizes, however, we do offer limited imperial sizes in the Float X2 and DHX2. We will continue to produce the DPX2 in a variety of imperial sizes as well.


Q: WHY THE DIFFERENT REBOUND KNOB LOCATIONS BETWEEN FLOAT X AND DHX2?

A: The Float X and DHX use the same damper architecture, however, due to our needs to optimize the design, they are laid out in an inversed platform.


Q: IS THE DHX AND FLOAT X COMPATIBLE WITH FOX BEARING MOUNT HARDWARE?

A: Yes! On both sides.*

*Check with frame manufacturer for compatibility.


Q: IS THERE A REMOTE LEVER OPTION FOR FLOAT X AND DHX?

A: Yes, it is remote compatible. We offer a kit to convert the Float X and DHX to remote (sold separately).
