Its all been about RockShox BoXXers recently, so it’s time to throw a little love in the Fox direction, here’s news of their limited edition kit.
FOX RACING SHOX RELEASES WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP LIMITED EDITION 40 RC2 FORK AND DHX RC4 REAR SHOCK.
Watsonville, CA, November 12, 2008 – FOX Racing Shox is proud to announce their World Championship Limited Edition 40 RC2 Fork and DHX RC4 Rear Shock will be made available for sale in a run of just 200 individually numbered units. In June, 2008 at Val di Sole, Italy history was made when sister and brother Rachel and Gee Atherton of team Animal-Commencal rode to dual victories in the World Championship Downhill race riding FOX’s 40 RC2 and DHX RC4.
The 40 RC2 limited edition has the same damping that was tested, tuned and won on throughout the season. Its performance characteristics are designed specifically to be pushed at the highest level of competition and comes stock with a stiffer Titanium spring than the 2009 production model. Race Manager Mark Fitzsimmons tested with FOX’s top Downhillers throughout the season to tune both the fork and shock for ultimate, winning performance. “The harder these products are ridden, the more rewarding the ride becomes,” stated Fitzsimmons.
The DHX RC4 is a new from-the-ground-up, purpose built downhill shock specifically engineered to meet the demands of the world’s most brutal downhill courses and the athletes that dominate them. External adjustments for velocity sensitive damping and position sensitive ending stroke control act independently of one another allowing the rider to dial in the perfect balance of small bump compliance/traction, dynamic control, and big hit absorption. The World Champion version has been tuned and tweaked throughout the season to perform at the highest World Cup level of competition to give the aggressive rider the extra edge for winning performance.
“These Limited Edition products are the culmination of hundreds of hours of testing and working with our Engineers, Race Support Team and Athletes. Our Race program is not just a Marketing effort, we work year round with the World’s best athletes to develop and improve our products so that we can win World Championships and ultimately deliver products to the end consumer that are best in class,” said Mario Galasso VP of FOX’s Bike division.
The Limited Edition World Champion 40 RC2 and DHX RC4 will be available mid December. Lucky owners will find trading cards with Rachel and Gee’s photos and statistics in the package as well as videos of their winning runs on the Limited Edition owner’s manual CD. Along with the Limited Edition product decals there are also tuning decals on the product to keep track of the owner’s preferred settings. Inquire at your favorite dealer for availability and price.
