    what air shock for Banshee Wildcard ?

    Hi all

    I'm putting my Wildcard on a diet and would like to replace my DHX 5 coil with an air shock

    what would work best from your experience:
    Rockshox Monarch RT3 +
    Rockshox Vivid
    Fox float X CTD

    or maybe a regular Monarch RT3 HV would do ?

    I ran a Manitou ISX 6 when I had a wildcard, it was really sweet. You might be able to dig up a used one on ebay or something, cheaper than your other options.

    What about the x fusion vector hlr? I've got one on a nukeproof scalp, It's a great shock.

    This!
    I had a Manitou Evolver ISX-4 on my Wildcard. A really good and totally underrated Shock which did great on the Wildcard, did great on my V2 Spitfire and is going to be great on my buddies Wildcard again!

    You should look for a used one, or check out Manitous Swinger Expert Pro, which is the newer ISX-6!!!

    Or get a BOS Kirk with custom-tuning for your Wildcard.

    No personal experience with RockShox Shocks, but for the Vivid you should check if there are no clearance-issues. A CCDB doesnīt fit in the Wildcard and the Vivid builds more voluminous than average, too ...
