    DHX Air 5.0

    So I got my first full suspension bike. I am lost with the Pro Pedal. It is NOT a lockout. In either position the rear is still active. I have ridden it both ways and feel no difference. Can anybody explain Pro Pedal and it's relationship the the boost chamber.

    I checked Fox site and it helped with setup of sag and rebound but as far as boost and Pro Pedal I am totally lost.

    Thanks

    What year is the DHX ? Older DHX's, w/ the dial knob didn't have much platform on the Propedal.

    That's a pretty generic article illustrating an RP23. You could increase the BV pressure and see if the added compression helps the pedalling @ all.

    On the DHX5.0 the valve does not do much. You can only feel on on more "medium" speed hits.
