    Help with setting low speed compression for descending

    Hello,

    I want to make sure I am doing the right thing with my settings. I have a solo air Reba fork. When I am going down steeper rock gardens, I turn the dial for the low speed compression from fully open to maybe half locked. Then have a light floodgate setting so the fork opens without to much force. I am trying this setting to stop the fork from diving too much into its travel on steeper descends. Don't want to go OTB. Is this the correct way of setting the suspension for descending or am I risking blowing the seals?

    You're fine setting it up on the firm side. Sounds like you may need a little more air spring?

    If air preload is right, just use the motion control since thats what it's there for. It's made to give if you
    do have a bump in the trail.
