The biggest noise in this area is being made about the new DHX model. The heart of this new "Aggressive All Mountain Freeride and DH riding" shock is The Boost Valve. This magic valve is located in the piggyback reservoir and claims to have finally "decoupled" (ie. made independent of each other) the tuning for both pedalling effeciency and for bottom-out resistance. It is also claimed to be easy to set up and adjust on-the-fly. The range of adjustment on offer is so broad and independent that Fox's testers have had little need to make pressure adjustments (ie. faffing with a shock pump) even when riding on extremely varied terrain. Weight is not too bad either (approx 400g).

Would something like this be applicable to my 5" 'all mountain' bike?
Is it Fox's less complicated answer to the 5th Element?
More importantly, what're they going to cost and will they take the coil off my Vanilla RC?

scary, it will blow you away, the shock is increadible(still to see how it perform over long time), so far out performed romic,5th element and swinger 4 way, the only thing I noticed was that the rebound was a little fast when closed completely, after talking to fox guys the reason make sense. is way to easy to adjust, and I have to lower the air pressure 60psi compared to the 5th or the swinger, plus it looks like it means bussiness.
the price is about $20 more than the 04's but the gained performance easily justify $50 to $100 more. (spring is included on the price. thats almost $50 saved from 5th or swinger), all 4 shocks are great performers, but fox posibly the best so far.
