    Wildcard dhx air riders

    For those of you with wildcards running the dhx air 5.0 are you experiencing a lot of bottoming out in the 5 inch setting? I'm running 250psi in the main chamber, 170 in the boost valve with the bottom out dial with one line left showing. Thinking about changing the canister out for the rp3 canister.

    What are you hitting that causes it to bottom out?
    Just another redneck with a bike

    Sorry but yes. I think the DHX lives up to all the negative hype and suffers from all the DHX issues reported. I have run high pressure and full BO adjustments. I am now using my Wildcard for playing on 4X and DJ trails and it really doesnt have much mid stroke support. Even at 10-15% sag you can stiff push throught the travel pumping into jumps etc. Very average shock.
    I just want to ride.

    Double that!
    The DHX Air seems to work only with a minority of bikes.
    And second, Banshee doesn´t recommend small volume Air-Shocks like RP3, because they are to progressive to get full travel.

    Get an Evolver-ISX4/6 or Monarch Plus instead ...

    I actually ran a mid tuned Monarch 4.2 for a short while and it felt better than the DHX Air. I don't know technical terms, but it felt a lot smoother and controlled through its travel than the DHX Air ever did.

    I'm actually going to try and trade this air for a coil vivid or dhx 5.0 coil.
