RockShox 2011 Boxxer Downhill Fork has a few tweaks for the coming year, while the 2010 stirred some excitement, since it was the first redesign in years. RockShox 2011 Boxxer forks were tested last year by the BlackBox racers World Cup Season which is a huge plus since past issues have now been resolved. For example, the air springs are replaced with a Solo Air Spring and a self regulating negative spring.

2011 RockShox Boxxer forks also contains a updated Maxle Lite thru axle, and the air spring is moved to the lower part of the fork to combat against damage from over tightening the crowns. Retail price for the RockShox 2011 Boxxer forks is $1700.

Fox Shox will receive a new treatment in 2011, a gold colored Kashima Coat by Miyaki Company located in Japan. We have seen the Kashima coating used on motorcycles and cars, but due to the technology of low friction plus combating wear and tear, Fox will use it on the suspension forks and shocks.

The Fox Racing Shox Kashima Coat for 2011 was race tested in 2009 by select riders, and in fact the Fox Racing Shox sponsored riders took home wins using the Kashima Coat suspension, which includes four world cup wins, Men’s and Women’s British National Downhill Championship, and World Championship victory by Jared Graves who rides for Yeti and Fox. Overall, durability has been added to the shox, but Fox has said a decrease in friction was noticed, which in turn added a increase in suspension performance.
