Kage, the Domain of rear shocks, long travel performance, reliability and durability.
Dual Flow Adjust™
DFA’s kind of like Glam Metal. Two things you’d never think could go together, but somehow work like magic. Let’s say you’re riding a course with both monster drops and lots of braking bumps. Convention says you have to adjust your fork to handle one or the other. RockShox DFA says no, use its dual independent damping circuits to tune it to handle both. Absorbing the big hits while staying plush through the small stuff, like makeup and metal.
You can push your bike so hard that the oil fades out before you do. So we determined the spring rate change of the shock as the shock oil heats up, and created an adjuster with a thermoplastic resin core that expands with the rising heat and viscosity changes of the shock oil. So your suspension will feel exactly the same at the bottom of a Garbanzo DH run as it did at the top. We named it Hot Rod, because “Adjuster With A Thermoplastic Resin Core” sounds like a weapon of mass destruction.
