Vorsprung Smashpot

Features:

  • Compatible with Fox 36 (2015+) and 36 Rhythm, Marzocchi Z1 (2019+), and Rockshox Pike/Lyrik/Yari/Revelation (35mm) forks. See bottom of page for fitment notes.
  • 130-180mm travel, internally adjustable using included spacers. (Note - max permissible travel for your fork is determined by the fork manufacturer and may be less than 180mm)
  • Full tool-free control over bottoming resistance.
  • 11 coil spring rates available, from 30lbs/in to 80lbs/in precision wound in 5lbs/in increments.
  • Rider weights from 45kg (100lbs) to 125kg (275lbs) catered for.
  • Universal cartridge kits require only new top caps to be moved between different forks (and foot studs if different fork brands).
  • Springs are guided and isolated internally and externally to reduce spring buckling and knocking, minimising noise.
  • Spring guiding system also means less rubbing, less wear and less contamination of the bath oil.
  • Utilises more oil for superior bushing lubrication and smoothness.
  • Only coil conversion system on the market allowing 180mm travel.
  • Easy and cost-effective to transfer from one fork to another.
  • Allows full use of travel even for very light riders
  • No harsh bottoming.
  • Reliable and low maintenance.
  • User installable and serviceable.
  • Designed, developed and manufactured in Whistler, Canada.
  • Weight increase of approximately 250-450g (dependent on spring rate and fork's existing spring system).
  • System includes one universal Smashpot cartridge kit with brand-specific food stud, fork-specific topcap and spring.

Our engineering is straightforward and no-BS, so we think our marketing should be too: if your first priority for your fork is outright performance, get yourself a Smashpot.

Vorsprung Luftkappe

Make a good fork a great fork.

Introducing the Luftkappe air piston kit for Fox Float forks. The Luftkappe is available for:
34 Float NA2 (2016-17) Performance & Factory Series (130mm + only - 120mm and lower need the 2018 Evol air shaft before a Luftkappe can be fitted)
34 Float NA2 Evol (2018+) Performance & Factory Series
36 Float NA2 Evol (2018+) Performance & Factory Series
36 Float NA (2015-17) Performance & Factory Series (max 180mm travel, min 120mm travel)

Installation tools also available
See bottom of page for full compatibility & incompatibility details.

Pinkbike:
"The Luftkappe's change to the feel of the Lyrik was immediately noticeable on the trail. Traction was increased across chatter and the fork remained higher in its travel and more stable, improving the dynamic ride height without sacrificing the top end. My confidence soared when hitting sections with a lot of chatter and mid to large-sized hits, and the result meant more comfort and speed through such sections."


Taking everything we learned with the Corset air sleeves and the Luftkappe we developed for the Pike, Yari & Lyrik, this second generation Luftkappe is a new air piston assembly for Fox's 34 NA2/Evol and 36 Evol forks. User installable and simple to set up, the Luftkappe transforms a good fork into a great fork.

  • Softer initial stroke
  • Larger negative air chamber
  • Increased sag without the associated diving
  • Coil-like initial & mid-stroke spring rate without excessive bottoming
  • Increased sensitivity
  • Improved mid stroke support & control
  • Superior bump compliance and traction
  • Reduced hand fatigue
  • Reduces required compression damping
  • Retains volume spacer compatibility
  • Optional tools available for self-install

"I just wanted to follow up and let you know the Luftkappe and Fractive tune on the fork are incredible. I have 3 rides on it now and have the settings almost all dialed. Things I’m noticing so far:

  1. The fork smooths out the small chatter making it much easier on my hands and wrists
  2. large hits are very controlled and it has a much more bottomless feel
  3. the control it gives me going through chunky corners is scary good. I’ve always liked the feel of the rear suspension on the bike, but it can’t keep up to the fork now in these situations.

I’m a very happy customer! Thanks for the awesome service."

Pricing: Starting at $150 - Buy Now

Incompatible Forks

  • Any remote-lockout or remote-adjust forks. These are not compatible.
  • Any StepCast forks (32 or 34)
  • 32, 34 or 36 Performance Series (P-S) forks with only the 3-position adjuster (no black low speed compression dial).
  • Any Fit Grip forks
  • Any RC2-damped forks (36 or 40) with high and low speed compression dials
  • Any Rhythm forks

The No-BS Limitations

  • If you want a lockout or a "pedal mode", this is not for you. The mode selector now becomes a high speed compression (HSC) adjuster and does NOT make a perceptible difference at low speed (ie bouncing on the fork) as its effect is very much separated from the LSC adjuster. It does however make a substantial difference at high speeds. If that would bother you, keep your stock damper.
  • Self-install on these is not simple. Please read the installation manual before ordering a kit for self-install and ensure you are capable and comfortable carrying this out.
  • We do not sell tools for self-install of these parts at this time - Fox does however.
  • This kit cannot address air spring concerns. Our Luftkappe upgrades however can help with that.
  • Our valving recommendations are based on our testing, and are aimed at centering you in the adjustment range. The range of adjustment is quite wide, and you will still need to spend some time finding the setup you like best.
  • This will not turn your 100mm travel XC race bike into a 200mm DH bike. Sorry.

Fast Suspension Co3 fox 36 damper cartridge • 26/27.5 • 160mm & 180mm

Our CO3 cartridge is an open bath cartridge with 3 adjustable functions.

We have developed a unique compression block that optimises a single dial for multi-functional adjustability. In the “push” position you can adjust the low speed compression function with 24 clicks. In the “pull” position you can also adjust the high speed function with a further 24 clicks.

The adjustment range is designed to be wide for added accuracy. This allows each rider to achieve the perfect set up for individual requirements and preference. The upper cap is where you find the low speed rebound adjustment with 24 position settings. The high-speed rebound control is provided by a stack of pre-set internal valves. The Fast CO3 cartridge is designed and manufactured in its entirety in our workshops with our CNC machines.

The fitting of the cartridge is undertaken exclusively by us and our partner service centres to guarantee optimal performance from the installation.

This upgrade is great for customers with a low spec Boxxer RC that is broken or wanting that extra performance!

Air Volume Spacers

Changing volume spacers in the shock is an internal adjustment that allows you to change the amount of mid stroke and bottom out resistance.

  • If you have set your sag correctly and are using full travel (bottoming out) too easily, then you could install a larger spacer to increase bottom out resistance.
  • If you have set your sag correctly and are not using full travel, then you could install a smaller spacer to decrease bottom out resistance.
