Coil vs Air Shock on a Mountain Bike (Kendall-Weed Style)
The topic of Coil vs Air Shock on a Mountain Bike has always been a long-winded debate. Many trail and post ride debates have been had on this topic. I’ve even see full blown arguments amongst riding buddies.
Is the weight vs the suspension performance and traction worth the weight trade off? Well, let’s see what Uncle Jeff-Kendall Weed says as he tests out both the Fox X2 air shock and Fox DHX2 on a section of his local trails in Bellingham. Back-to-back testing like this is not only a great way test out suspension, but it can also help you dial in the right performance settings.
