No, we recommend the same setup procedure as our other rear shocks. However, the dimple to swap the air from the positive chamber to the negative is deeper in the travel, so riders will need to compress the shock further into its travel to set pressure properly. To begin, enter a few details into the Trailhead App for a starting point to dial in your air pressure. Trailhead will also give you a starting Rebound setting—the suggested setting is the number of clicks from the “closed” position (when the knob reaches the hard stop clockwise). If you change the air pressure, cycle the rear shock a few times to swap the air from the positive to the negative chamber and recheck the air pressure. Take it out for a ride and fine-tune your ride feel. For a deeper look at setting up your suspension, check out the RockShox Suspension Setup and Tuning Guide.
