    Are there any advantages to going one way or the other with regards to coil vs. an air shock on a dedicated 4x/DJ bike?

    Any particular shock you'd advise either way?

    x 2.

    You'll never drop or land anything that a coil shock would be necessary for.

    and being able to change the air pressure(spring rate) for different courses would be nice
