With a bigger air can, Vivid offers riders the most coillike performance with all the tunability of an air spring. Vivid’s beefier chassis means more oil volume to help with heat management and larger bushing overlap to reduce friction. What sets Vivid apart, however, is TouchDown technology—a new position-sensitive damping system with three compression zones. The first 10% of travel is supple and forgiving to quiet trail chatter. For 10%-80% of travel, the shock moves into controlled and stable compression damping before transitioning into the Adjustable Hydraulic Bottom Out, which lets riders tune bottom-out resistance in the final 20% of travel.
