X-Fusion proudly reveals its 2011 aftermarket rear shock line. The lineup includes the Vector Series and the O2 series. They will be available in August 2010. The engineering team was headed by Anthony Trujillo. X-Fusion will also make customization of the air volume in positive and negative air chambers to its customers in 2011.
The Vector Series comes in three models namely the RC, HLR and R. Switching to aluminum shaft, the Vector series are lighter but still maintains its durable qualities. Ideal for world cup downhill races and all-mountain rides, it gives quality performance and works to satisfy your every ride. The rebound oil flow was increased and the low speed compression circuit was redesigned to make it flexible for adjustment.
The compression knobs are made smaller and more length allowance is in place to compliment different shock sizing without sacrificing frame clearance. It also has new graphics to contrast the black body and reservoir of the model.
The O2 Series comes in five models: O2 RCX, O2 RLX, O2 RL, O2 RLR and O2 R. the shocks may be similar to one another but X-Fusion designed them to be slightly different so it can reach different individual tastes on shocks. The O2 series carries a new piston with better cross section flow area, similar to the Vector.
It applied feedback from X-Fusion’s Race Program, ETP (Elite Test Program) and internal testing from employees. This is evident on the compression and rebound tuning on the O2 series. There’s also a new air sleeve designs that gives a lower air-spring compression ratio. The Additional Volume (AV) Sleeve works to limit the area covered by anodized aluminum. With its additional air chamber, the shock becomes less affected during high shaft speed terrain. All O2 shocks can get the AV Sleeve upgrade.
