    Rapid Recovery vs. Dual Flow Rebound??

    Does anyone know the difference between RS's new Rapid Recovery and the Dual Flow Rebound that's been on forks and shocks for a while?

    It seems to me that Rapid Recovery could just be a rebadging of the Dual Flow that we've had for a while.

    yep, with some modifications.

    "Both versions of the Charger damper feature the Rapid Recovery rebound damping technology first seen on the 2012 Monarch RT3 rear shock. The system aims to keep the fork riding higher in its travel, preventing packing down on successive bumps. This is achieved by using the Dual Flow rebound system, which has separate, adjustable beginning stroke and fixed rate ending stroke rebound damping circuits.

    Although this technology has been on the RockShox product line for a while, Rapid Recovery uses a faster rate ending stroke rebound that has a set ‘blow off’ point (or more correctly, a digressive damping profile), allowing it to quickly re-extend in readiness for the next bump. A slower-than-usual beginning stroke rebound rate prevents an uncontrolled bucking feeling as the fork extends back to full travel."
