    New question here. Which rear shock, Fox float X ctd or float ctd. Giant Reign 1 2013

    I am replacing my rear shock on my giant reign 1

    I am stuck between these two, both Kashima coated

    Fox Float X CTD Remote Shock 2014

    Fox Float CTD ADJ Boost Valve Shock 2014


    The current float ctd has never been right for me, I am 90kg with my gear. Now it is damaged I want to get the right tune

    It is currently

    Velocity tune M
    Rebound tune M
    Boost valve 175psi

    So, two questions here

    Which shock have people tried or recommend out of the two?
    And what tune do people recommend?

    Look outside the box and go with something other than Fox. RS Monarch Plus RC3 or X-Fusion Vector Air HLR or even a CC Db Air. All would work really nice if you are looking to get a better performing shock.

    Me too as a Fox fan. Ran RP2, RP3, RP23, RP23 tuned ... The Monarch on the Reign feels better (more controlled) than the tuned RP23 did. I also have a Vector Air that I should try out more but the Monarch just works, and it will likely take a ride or two to get the Vector tuned to my liking.

    The DB Air or coil for that matter would also likely feel very nice from the comments I have read from others.

    I still run a couple of Fox forks that overall I am happy with but sometimes wish my 36 160 felt a little more plush.
