Dave - do you want to use this information in any way? Feel free to do whatever you want with it, and if you prefer I delete this I certainly can.

There's been a lot of questions regarding the XCR, and the past few years the feeling of it being watered down and softer than what people expect. Chris Wolf has confirmed, with the following quote, in response to a question about the shocks/valving being similar to most recent XCR models:

No, we heard the feedback and went stiffer with Matryx. Not full race stiff, but should make aggressive riders happier.

Additionally, people were asking if that also meant the XCR was coming with stiffer springs. The answer to that is, NO. The suspension team at Polaris was happy with the balance of the shock package and springs, and didn't feel the need to upgrade to heavier springs. Anyone feeling they need more spring rate (heavier guys) should plan to upgrade their springs on an individual / need basis.
