    Can anyone spy the new part?





    VIVID 5.1!!!!!!!!!



    Well technically, the Tubeless D24s, Vivid and Mallets are all new, but I figured most people would be most interested in the Vivid.

    Going to test it out tomorrow on our DH course, will report back with details asap.

    Nice looking morewood! Richard is a class act over there. I have never seen or heard about a company that really cares as much about their customers as much as morewood does. Let us know how you like the vivid.

    I was more or less asking because a lot of time QBP will have new stuff on the site before it is in stock so yo can see the prices and what not.

    Any idea what makes it vivid specific? I can seem yo find o.d. and i.d. of the RS springs

    They are the same as the Avy's so you can get one from them.
    QBP is not showing any ti springs.

    I did a little research and the new obtanium performance ti springs are an I.D. os 1.5 and they sels reducers for marz/manitou/fox but you don't need a reducer for the Vivid which leads me to believe they are 1.5"i.d.

    I was trying to avoid the whole retail thing by ordering through QBP. Might be an issue with the RS springs on other shocks as far as hitting the reservoir is concerned.

    The springs will be Vivid specific because of the ID, and like Martinez said they will be compatible with Avy's and Cane Creek.

    The new springs will have Rock Shox name on them but they are being produced by another company.
