    Are you Capra owners happy with the RS Deluxe R?

    Is it gelling with the Lyrik ok? or is it undergunned? Iíve got a Capra coming and am torn about swapping the shock. I really like the X2 but $!

    Capra AL gets the Superdeluxe R if that makes a difference for you. no reason why it would be under gunned.

    Yes, I understand. Do you own the AL or have you ridden it hard?

    I get my base AL on Monday.

    That said, my last shock was a fox ctd on an enduro. It held up well on long descents. I can't imagine this shock would be worse.

    No doubt, this shock should be better than your CTD. Congrats on Monday! Iíve got over a month to wait. The horror...

    Mine was shipped 2 weeks ahead of availability. Maybe you'll get lucky.

    Hey Gutch you still rocking the 429? After 9 mos in the Jet and trips to Moab, Grand Junction and multiple rides in Sedona the 120mm rear isnít cutting it.
    Looking at either an AL Capra or Rip for big trail days. Let us know how the Capra does

    Thatís a big leap from the 429 to a Capra. Iím way curious how the Capra does on epic style rides. Plan for me is to go AL Capra for big stuff and turn the Jet into an XC/ endurance rig. Just canít get the rear end of the Jet to handle big stuff

    Yes it is.im going to be doing some traveling and riding different venues and some parks etc, so figured the AL Capra should fit the bill.
