This story begins the place it began: with the world’s greatest riders. From World Cup downhill programs to secret take a look at tracks, the brand new BoXXer builds on a legacy courting again to the times of Nicolas Vouilloz and Steve Peat.

Right now’s elite athletes, like Vali Höll and Loris Vergier, helped RockShox create probably the most superior BoXXer fork but.

Constructed on its high-performance legacy, the newest BoXXer DH fork was redesigned prime to backside to win races – or just chase your mates down the mountain.

An all-new 38mm chassis

Two years of in depth improvement specializing in the vital mix of bending and torsional stiffness ratios resulted within the all-new 38mm BoXXer chassis. RockShox believes it has struck the perfect stability between stiffness, compliance, and luxury for max management.

The stout 38mm stanchions are simply the beginning of the BoXXer’s overhaul although. These higher tubes harmonize with the lowers to ship ideally suited journey traits. By intensive using and testing, the stanchion wall thickness and decrease leg structure had been tuned for stiffness that accepts steering enter with out beating up your arms.

New DebonAir+ spring

The BoXXer’s DebonAir+ twin tube design is in contrast to any air spring the model has made earlier than. It’s infinitely tunable with each air stress and Bottomless Tokens. Beat that, coil spring…

‘The motion is so coil-like, it’s uncanny. Off the highest, BoXXer is impossibly responsive and supple, however it desires to eat when the large square-edged hits begin coming’ – RockShox

The brand new BoXXer Final rides on the dual tube air spring, a separate air chamber that nests inside the 38mm uppers. Designing the air spring to work inside the ID of the 38mm higher tubes initially prompted the spring curve to turn into too progressive for even the heartiest of DH racers. So, RockShox added the dual tube and boosted the air spring shaft diameter from the standard 10mm to a hole 14mm shaft, creating additional damaging quantity for the air spring.

By including the dual tube sleeve,  the completely different spring volumes may be exactly managed: constructive, damaging, and casting (suppose trapped air within the decrease leg). This optimizes the constructive air chamber quantity for that hole-swallowing linear spring curve, our most linear spring curve but. You need to use each single millimeter of journey (if you happen to want it).

On the prime of the journey, the damaging air chamber quantity has been boosted to higher take up small bumps. On the backside of the stroke, a brand new bottom-out bumper offers you comfortable, clank-free landings off the most important drops. Irrespective of if you happen to’re cornering, charging by rock gardens, or on a uneven straightaway, the brand new BoXXer goals to search out traction the place you by no means thought to look.

Nearly each facet of the Boxxer has been overhauled

New bushings – easy is quick

The BoXXer’s bushings get thirsty, so RockShox has discovered a strategy to preserve them consistently lubricated. Every higher tube has oil movement ports positioned close to its backside. As you crank out the laps, these openings flow into extra lube by the bushings.

This new design evenly distributes air quantity above the decrease bushing, leading to a constant spring charge you possibly can belief.

ButterCups – the golden resolution

The ButterCups we’ve seen within the 2023 Pike, Lyrik, and Zeb forks now reside on this reworked BoXXer. Little gold-packaged rubber pucks reside on the finish of the damper and air spring shafts and match into the decrease leg of the fork. ButterCups dampen high-frequency vibrations earlier than they hit your arms and arms and result in an early finish to an in any other case good day.

Charger 3 RC2

The well-regarded Charger 3 RC2 damper launched within the 2023 Pike, Lyrik, and Zeb forks is now making waves within the model’s DH fork.

RockShox eradicated Excessive Velocity Compression (HSC) and Low Velocity Compression (LSC) cross-talk. The overlap in adjustment performance that ties HSC and LSC changes collectively, making actually unbiased tuning beforehand not possible. The choice between including extra damping and sacrificing your arms to a harsh journey doesn’t exist.
