Fox RP23 Rear Shock with Boost Valve - 2014 Model

Fox RP23 rear shock with high volume air can and boost valve

This is the shock that came with my Trance X 29er frame. 

Quick facts

  • this shock has the HV (high-volume) air can.  In theory this will make the shock more linear (less ramp up) at the end of the stroke.
  • It has an eye-to-eye length of 184mm and a stroke of 44mm;
  • weight: 275g.
