    monarch rt3

    I'm looking at the monarch RT3 shock and it comes in 3 different tune levels, low, mid and high, wich one is better for a XCT555? my weight it,s around 180 pounds.

    The tunes are based upon the leverage ratio of the bike. For instance, 08 XCT models had 2.75 ratio (5.5" travel), where are 09 and 10 XCT had a 2.5 ratio (5" travel). See the attached chart from RS that I saved to a JPEG. Also, XCT's are known for a rising rate at the end of the travel.
