Big, bold, and built to maximize downhill capability and performance.
The legendary Vivid has evolved to match everything from downhill
to E-MTB to enduro bikes. An air shock with coil-like suppleness and
unmatched durability, Vivid is designed for the most demanding riders
and racers. This rear shock offers a versatile damping platform with
intuitive adjustability to match every course and terrain.
TouchDown technology is Vivid’s new position-sensitive damping
system. We developed a rear shock damper that’s forgiving at the
beginning of its travel while staying composed in the middle and end
of the stroke. Each phase of suspension action makes a seamless
handoff to the next, so all you notice is that thrilling buzz at the
bottom of the downhill.
Just like how you react to the range of terrain on your favorite trails,
Vivid’s TouchDown technology handles whatever you drop into with
comfort, confidence, and control. A rear shock that smooths out
everything from stutters to senders? That’s a good call.
To give Vivid a supple ride at the beginning of its travel, TouchDown
technology bypasses the compression damping generated by the
main piston in the first 10% of its travel. Quieting trail chatter is just the
beginning. To handle hectic terrain, the next 70% of Vivid’s travel rides
on controlled and stable compression damping. Adding to TouchDown
technology’s adaptability, Adjustable Hydraulic Bottom Out lets you
tune rear suspension feel for the harsh hits that dip into the final 20%
of travel. Go ahead and do an end-zone dance if you feel like it
ADJUSTABLE HYDRAULIC BOTTOM OUT Vivid features Adjustable Hydraulic Bottom Out (AHBO), which kicks in to increase compression damping within the last 20% of travel—but how much damping it offers is all on you. The key component is an adjustable dial offering five different compression settings to customize the cushioning you experience on impact. Vivid’s AHBO allows for a wider range of rebound tunes to match our customer’s frame kinematics perfectly
VIVID AIR SPRING TECHNOLOGY What sets Vivid apart from a coil spring is the highly tunable air spring featuring DebonAir technology, containing higher volume to provide a more linear, consistent feel and improve small bump sensitivity. Vivid’s air spring makes it easy to initiate travel while adding support in the middle of the stroke and comfortable bottomout resistance near the end of the stroke.
