Looking at getting a 2018 pro s switch or an Adventure. Anybody have any input on the fox shocks vs the walkers? Thanks

Walkers. You can get everything the Adventure has and put it on yourself, and have a better sled at the end of the day.

Well, I can't say because I have never ran the Fox. Something strange happened on my 2017 Switchy. It came with Walkers. I am a big man (250lbs) and bottomed out quite a bit on the first rides. Then after miles were accrued the bottoming out stopped. But before that. I spent money on HyGear springs based on my first rides. My 2019 Switchy did the same thing.

I had saved the springs and thought I needed to install them right away on the 2019. But that was not the case. I am changing them this summer just because I bought them.

Not to downgrade the HyPro springs. They are fantastic when it comes to eating bumps. I am installing them this summer just because I bought them. But my 2019 ride with Walker shocks was great.

The Walker Evan shocks are great for me. But I don't jump. I just ride beat trails.

there was a time that fox would be the shock of choice. but that has changed today. i have been rebuilding shocks for a long time. walker has had some tolerance issue's in the years past. there quality has gotten much better. and the new velocity shocks are really, really, good.
