INSIDE THE HI-TECH FOX 2.5 PODIUM X2 SHOCKS:
The Yamaha YXZ1000R SS Special Edition comes with industry-exclusive Fox 2.5 Podium X2 shocks with separate high- and low-speed compression and rebound adjusters, plus adjustable preload and crossover rings for the dual shock springs. The X2 shocks have next-level technology, including Internal-ByPass (IBP) and Bottom-Out Control (BOC), which allows new levels of shock tuning to eliminate harsh wheel-hop chop and resist bottoming in the dunes and in short-course racing, all without having to re-valve. Massive amounts of shock oil are pushed by the piston, while dual ports on the piggyback meter compression and rebound.
The Fox 2.5 Podium X2 shocks have valving in the separate compression and rebound adjusters with high- and low-speed adjustability, Internal ByPass ports in the body and Bottom-Out Control. The main piston valving only flows fluid at bottoming, and “normal” shocks need a re-valve to approach the X2’s adjustment range.
