    I don't like the name, is that an x or a k, it is unclear, needs more better color coordination with the kashima's too

    All valid complaints.
    Plus, DHX2? How will my friends know I'm better than them when their shocks have bigger and better numbers?

    So no shaft end adjuster anymore? Does that mean it's a narrower solid shaft?

    behind you, don't wait up.
    I see a 475# coil, soooo 25# increments in spring rate? That would be good.

    are DHX's better than RC's? I can't decide. DownHill X-country? RC=Rad Chit.

    I think this is tough.

    DHX2 is 2 numbers less than RC4, and the DHX 5.0 is 1 more than RC4. I am so confused, but orange springs....now, thats a color I always thought would look great with my neon green kit.

    Gwin destroyed them all practicing in Pietermaritzberg last year, before taking the win on an RC.

    The lack of sleep must be getting to me because I've read your post as RC= Rad Clit


    As for 25lb increments. Weren't old fox steel springs inaccurate as hell and could vary as much a +/- 20lb?

    Not sure if serious...

    But if you are, my understanding is the RAD stands for Racing Application Development. And they use the program to develop and test product. Once a product has been vetted by racers and test riders it goes to production. Once it's production, it's no longer RAD and gets its own name...

    Presumably more RAD will be on-going... maybe even under a different label. I mean, they have to ride the hype for a little while at least?!

    Thanks, while I didn't know what it stood for, I was just posting about the new letters and being 100% not serious Though even the folks at Pinkbike when looking at Brook's bike at Crankworks NZ were said to see the RAD stickers gone and the dhx y2k replace them :(

    Nothing RAD ever works out in my life. I just wanted something RAD for once in my life.

    RAD = Research And Development

    Sort of like SRAM's blackbox department.

    Yep nothing new just looks close to production and its a DHX2 not really that hard to work out, well maybe not for the rest of the world but I guess everything has to be dumbed down a little for the majority of the users using this forum.

    Yeah, I'm not even sure how I knew about rad and rc4 and dhx, seeing as how I was born yesterday and this was the first shock I ever saw.

    I did some research. It's really awesome decals. But I guess that's subjective

    RAD actually stands for rad application development, everyone gets points for effort though. RIP in peace dhx5.

    I know a guy who can tell you how...

    I think they mixed up the annotations for "special purpose" and "mushroom grip".

    Reservoir Awesome Dials needs allen keys to tune should be tool free.
    also
    Reservoir Aligned Dumbly, how much is the offset with respect to the shock body?

    Is this used by sc syndicate? Looks like it won't fit on a sc v10.3 to v10.6, .....still figuring out?
