    Weight Limit on Fox RP2 rear shock

    Im 5'11 and 235 lbs. Is this too much weight for a Fox RP2 rear shock?

    Ride in midwest so its mostly XC riding with very little drops. Mostly going over roots, gravel, log etc.

    Thanks for the input

    It depends on the full suspension frame. I believe the RP2 can hold at least 250 psi, but how much you need is based on leverage ratio and type of suspension.

    I think the max pressure on Fox air shocks is 300PSI. At your weight I think you'll be fine.

    Hi five star,

    I'm a shade under 5'10" weigh 235 and ride a 2009 Hi Fi.

    I ride a lot of technical singletrack and "big air" (yeah right) is 18" off the ground. I'm running about 200 psi in my RP 2 and it works just fine.
