    wow

    that looks like a DHX air 9.0 hahahaa, very cool tho fun to see where that goes.

    air shocks could be the next big thing in DH if they are made reliable.

    There is a completely logical reason for this....

    When air shocks repeatedly compress, they heat up and oil/metal expands. This causes the shock to start binding and not be suitable for DH/FR.

    My guess is that one of those piggybacks is an expansion chamber, and the other is the standard adjustment chamber

    Fox already makes an RP3 air shock with a 3 inch stroke to fit on DH bikes, although it is technically only for free ride.

    I for one am excited because air would be way more adjustable, take less effort, be lighter, and feel very plush. Viva la Fox!!
