The Monarch's lightweight design not only delivers silky smooth travel, but thanks to a redesigned Solo Air spring with updated damping controls, it also delivers a spring rate you’d generally only get from a much heavier coil shock. Monarch floats through bumps even better than before, turning rugged trails into tire-gripping velvet. The chassis is lean while maintaining the durability and adjustability needed to bite off huge chunks of burly trail action and epic cross country. The Monarch RT3 features external rebound and 3-Position compression adjustment (Open/Pedal/Lock). - Intended Use: XC, Trail - Rapid Recovery allows the shock to recovery faster between consecutive bumps, letting the wheel track the ground with greater precision - SoloAir spring lets you add air to your forks through a single Schrader valve, filling both the positive and negative air spring chambers simultaneously - Fast Black hard anodized, forged aluminum body with sag gradients - 10mm 7075 aluminum shaft - Autosag is a simple set-up feature available only on Specialized bicycles. This feature utilizes the rider's weight to set proper shock pressure
The Award-Winning Gravity Air Shock - XV EVOL air sleeve with 300psi max - Progressive bottom-out bumper - Angled tank valve to improve pump clearance - X2 2-position Open/Firm lever retains high and low speed compression adjustment - Advanced RVS damping system provides more tunability "Factory" says it all. The best-of-the-best technology we have to offer is available in our Factory Series models with our buttery smooth, and ultra durable Genuine Kashima Coat. These products are World Cup proven. X2 ARCHITECTURE Less friction, more flow Fueled by years of RAD development, X2 hits the sweet spot with its a linear damping profile, revised oil flow, and redesigned seals on DHX2 and FLOAT X2 shocks. The wide adjustment range gives riders the support and grip that the trail demands, as well as a more plush and open feel in the initial travel. X2 Lever Available on the FLOAT X2 and DHX2 shocks, the X2 2-position Open/Firm lever retains high and low speed compression adjustment. EVOL Air Transfer Port System Our EVOL linear spring curve gives forks and shocks plushness off the top, extra mid-stroke support, and more tunable bottom-out progression, allowing riders to tap into the ideal pairing of front and rear-end feel. EVOL Air Sleeve The lightweight one-piece EVOL air sleeve was designed for each shock size (imperial, trunnion, and metric) to balance internal forces and has maximized bushing overlap to reduce friction during "real world" forces like side-loading and twisting. RVS The Rod Valve System (RVS) provides a more seamless damping transition when absorbing small to large impacts, resulting in faster system response, more control, and less harshness. GENUINE KASHIMA COAT Kashima's distinctive gold color is backed by its high performance attributes—properties that provide an exceptionally smooth feel and extreme durability.
