    Did you mean uppers? Lower leg diameter is kind of useless.

    I'm kinda curious here - because last year you dropped rumours about the 08 fork (I believe you said bigger stanchions and/or significant changes anyway) and it ended up being the same apart from minor lower updates.

    To my eyes at least, comparing with pics of 888's (which are 38mm this year), those boxxer pics don't look 38mm. Guess that's why I'm asking for clarification. :)

    Looks like it. I guess with everything else being larger in dia. they gave the air cap more girth as well.

    nicely integrated. i like it.

    hoping the weight doesn't jump up too much (prepares to hoard '08 wc's).

    1. Will there be an air version?
    2. How light is she?
    3. When can I buy it?

    :cheers:

    You're lucky. Mine sucks. Sure it's quick to take off. Even quicker when it's worked itself loose as it does every ride.

    You could run Pike QR on "old" boxxers too.

    Wouldn't larger stanchions create more friction theoretically? hence more surface area? Especially if its an Air fork.


    Unless Rockshox got that all Covered :cheers:

    Looks to me It def uses larger Stanctions, and the Mission Control Dampning. The lowers Kinda resemble a Totem.:biggrin:

    If you didn't have any lubrication or flex in your fork yes, but in a real world situation, no. More surface area means more area to spread the load, especially on the lubricating oil film, which means a thicker film and thus less friction. Due to the increased bushing stiffness, you also get less binding effect. 40s are IMO unquestionably the most frictionless fork available, and in my opinion the large stanchions are the main reason why.

    Those stanchions look like 35mm or so, which should be sweet - big enough to make a stiffness difference without being so big that the wall thickness has to be significantly less. Here's hoping it all works out!

    Looks nice too me. I'm guessing 35mm. like the Lyrics, or are they 36...? I hope they keep te airspring actualy, as I dig my solo air boxxer.
    We'll find some 09's for cheap on ebay in a few days I guess :)

    My guess is if they keep the SoloAir, but go with larger stantions, that would provide a larger air piston allowing for more precise air setup.

    No power bulges? SRAM seems pretty proud of those. They're even trotting them out for the SID.

    I would bet the total trail is identical to the current fork.

    But fatter legs requires more offset of the axle in the lowers casting, meaning less offset in the crowns. Plus, it looks like the lowers extend further as well, the forks probably have more bushing over lap then the current forks.

    I just got the latest dirt mag, an 1 ov the pics clearly shows small "power bulges" up by the arch.
