    2008 Slayer SXC: shock specs

    Hi, can anyone please let me know the length and stroke shock for a 2008 SXC? Tried searching for this info here but my search skills are probably very poor (extremely likely).

    Thank you.

    The SXC-50 would used a Fox 36 Float 160 R fork.

    Fox Floats are all air forks. Rock Shox Lyrik Solo Air also work well on the SXC-50.

    I wouldn't waste the money on an RST for the SXC-50, not in the same league, they won't keep up with the Fox rear shock.

    You also don't want to go any shorter than 150mm of travel or you start to change the geometry

    Nothing shorter than 150mm to maintain the geometry.
