What would everyones thoughts be of a 2022 XCR 650/850 129"/137" in the Matryx chassis for consumers, with NEW Velocity front shocks with Hi/Low and Rebound, and also a "new model" based off the XCR but called a Matryx PRO-X 650/850 engines with slightly longer shocks NON-Velocity with Hi/Lo and Rebound, and a little longer Front shock length for more ride height and better ditch banging, 137" track length, almost like a shorter Assault for ditch bangin! Lets here it...

If the velocity shocks are anything like I think they are(similar to the position sensitive fox shocks a few years ago), then do not name it the XCR. Come up with a different name. XCR imo should be based as an aggressive riden cross country sled on actual variations of snow. Not flat ice x-country racing. XCR name deserves aggressive shocks. Not sensitive rider shocks.

I agree with taking the Velocity shocks off, If they were the answer to "bet in class" i would think KYB, Fox, and others would have jumped in by now? Maybe they have them already I don't know?

Hopefully everyone gets their 21 sleds including me before we start talking about the 22 model year for Christ sakes.

And a drain plug on the bottom of the chaincase!
Yeah, whats up with that! At least I have an oil pump, but from the videos if you don't have a pump, draining the oil looks like more work than it should be!

I know for a fact that the original versions of the velocities given to the race teams had rebound adjustment, ontop of other various differences. Alot of the XC racers are still running these shocks compared to the newer ones as they performed better.
