Information on "Strut-mount" bikes and FOX/Marzocchi coil shocks
Mountain bikes (MTB) and electric mountain bikes (eMTB) with "strut-mounts" such as those shown below require additional evaluation when configuring with a FOX or Marzocchi aftermarket coil shock.
When evaluating the purchase of a FOX or Marzocchi aftermarket coil shock (DHX2, VAN, or BOMBER CR) on a "strut-mount" MTB or eMTB frame, FOX and Marzocchi recommend the following:
- Please check OEM bike owner's manual for confirmation of coil shock compatibility.
- DO NOT exceed the shock stroke or max strut length* listed in the table below (consult your OEM if unsure).
- Confirm shock length/ shock stroke for the specific frame.
- Only "metric-length" shocks should be used.
|Shock Stroke||Max Strut Length*|
*Strut length is the distance between the axis of pivot and the axis of the shock mount
