    Boxxer with Charger damper???

    Anyone know when this fork will be available to mortals? I saw it in retail ish packaging looking like it will be an option to buy soon but I don't know when...basically a world cup with DLC and a charger damper....I'm floored by my pike and a boxxer that feels like that would be awesome

    I spoke with HB recently and he said the new boxxer is much improved as well....apparently they have much tighter tolerances regarding how the bushings line up, have better bushings, a massively improved air side, and the charger damper....I NEED ONE....what's the deal????

    If you take a look at this past season's race photos... there's been a special adjuster/topcaps on boxxers all season.

    Last I heard it was SUPPOSED to be a '14 product, but who knows.

    talked to someone who was at interbike, and he said there was no boxxer with a charger damper in it.. he 'speculated' that itll be a 2015 product, or atleast be a few more months before they say anything else.

    again, all speculation

    Do you still want it if it is 650B only and has a 15 mm axle?

    Rockshox with bushings that aren't dog eared, I'll believe it when I see it!

    If you want black stanchions send yours to Blonde Bikes in Oz and they'll make 'em slipperier and blackerer.

    try the links in the middle of the page, they show the different coatings avaiable (usually for motor bikes, but they do bike forks too)

    So, are you saying you want something better than your AVY Boxxer?

    I'm probably sending mine in this winter, so speak now if I should wait...

    Well. I would try the charger damper.

    If it's as good in the boxxer as it is on the pike I would possibly run it.

    The real appeal lies in the re worked air side. They felt incredible, and prior to feeling these, I have abhorred air spring forks. Also the fact that the castings are machined to tighter tolerances appeals.

    I might just jump on the fox 40 air and get the avalanche damper for it while I kill some time waiting for this miracle fork. Looks like its gonna be a while.
