    Vivid air on mojo hd

    Hi has anyone tried a vivid air on a mojo HD and if so how well does it perform, I have seen them on Santa cruz nomads and am interested to know how it performs on a all mountain/trail bike for pedaling as well as downhill use.

    Hi Spooney!
    I have one in my XL. Haven't had much time on it and fiddling around with the setup still. First impression was that the Vivid feels plusher "through" the travel than stock RP23. Second was that you can run the Vivid with greater sag without bottoming it up. Althought it doesn't have that bottoming out resistance control like RC4 have it still feels much more progressive towards end of the stroke than RP23. That's just my first impression. Pedalling is fine. Of course the RP23 pedals little better with PP. Personally I didn"t use the PP much. I heard some of RS staff have Vivid airs in HD. So I think it's not a total disaster ;-)

    i would think you would want a low compression tune as the DW Link already has a lot of compression tuning built in

    In fact, in the case of the rp23 that my mojo builds, the tune is LOW/LOW but this is only for fox, not for Rock Shox, thats why Im requesting this. But I could read here in forum mtbr that somebody has been recommending the M tune but im not completely sure about that.

    Anyway, I suposse is depending at the same time of the weight of the rider, so, if youre a light rider probably the Low tune will feet better than if youre a heavy rider but its only a supposition.

    At first time I though exactly the same TUNE L but I need more answers to ensure the final tune and therefore, buy the vivid air...

    Thanks nonetheless getupgetdown (cool nick )

    And how about the RS Monarch Plus? It is a really light damper (355g), but can it live up to the standard of Vivid Air and Fox DHX Air? Any experiences?

    I have one on my HD and am plenty happy. A LOT easier to setup than a dhx and its quite a bit better in the performance department too.
    There's a feeling I get
    When I look to the West
    And my spirit is crying for leaving
