Vivid R2C

The legendary Vivid is like a “Trail Whisperer.” Even in the most impossible situations, our most rugged coil shock always knows just the right way to get it done. Any trail, any time. Nothing shakes the Vivid’s confidence. From downhill racing to extreme freeride, the Vivd combines extreme durability with the precise adjustments that matter when you’re going big. Laser-etched controls let you dial in beginning and ending-stroke rebound as well as low-speed compression, making this shock fly through rock gardens as smoothly as it absorbs a sudden drop in altitude.

Technology

Counter Measure™

Engineered For The Elite, the new Vivid conquers several once-thought-impossible engineering feats. Technologies like Counter Measure, which reduces the breakaway force of the shock to virtually zero pounds, transforming small bumps in to traction-generating performance.

Dual Flow Adjust™

DFA’s kind of like Glam Metal. Two things you’d never think could go together, but somehow work like magic. Let’s say you’re riding a course with both monster drops and lots of braking bumps. Convention says you have to adjust your fork to handle one or the other. RockShox DFA says no, use its dual independent damping circuits to tune it to handle both. Absorbing the big hits while staying plush through the small stuff, like makeup and metal.

Rapid Recovery™

Who doesn't want more available wheel travel for successive hits? The Rapid Recovery System allows the shock to recovery faster between consecutive bumps, letting the wheel track the ground with greater precision. This more active suspension system, doesn’t pack up and enables the bike to ride in a higher and softer part of the spring rate.  Rapid Recovery gives the rider access to more available wheel travel, bump after bump, to achieve a smoother and more controlled ride.
