    Pit Stop Semi Synthetic Fluid

    I want to get some information about thees......



    It only indicates ( Semi Synthetic ) on its container nothing about its Wt. ( viscosity ) or anything else
    Nor i havnt seen in any manual to mention where we could use it......

    The thing i found my self is that its a very cool lubricant for the lowers and makes the fork travel smooth thus you could experience a higher level of sensitivity

    Was i right ?

    That is a bottle of Maxima with a different label on it. I presume it's the Maxima RFF since it specifies that it is fork fluid on the Rock Shox label. Don`t know what the weight is, but Rock Shox typically states 15wt for their lower leg lubricant, which if it`s Maxima's 15wt RFF would have a kinematic viscosity of 47.1 cSt @ 40 C. That is very close to Fox's 10wt. I don't know that I've used Maxima in my own forks deliberately (perhaps something re-branded I didn't know about) but I know that is the fluid of choice for Push.

    That's just Redrum, used for air piston and lowers lubrication.
