Introducing the next generation of big hit suspension technology. The updated TTX22m.2 rear shock builds on the supreme levels of performance, traction and control that made the original TTX22 the go-to shock choice for professional gravity riders.
The new TTX22m.2 benefits from improved bottom out performance, courtesy of a newly designed bump rubber, in addition to the cup it sits in. This significantly improves mid- to end-stroke control as a result of earlier engagement and more consistent, predictable support.
The new bump rubber, in combination with the cup it sits in, acts as a second spring, loading and releasing energy to ensure the rider returns back into position after a heavy compression in a quick, controlled manner. Overall, the spring curve of the shock will improve performance for less progressive bikes that require more end-stroke support. The new design also boasts the added effect of lowering the risk for a hard bottom out that could impact handling.
Changing both spring and stroke is an easy operation on the TTX22m.2. This is achieved by adding or removing 2.5mm washers under the bump rubber cup. No special tools are required, nor is shock disassembly needed to perform the operation. The spring, meanwhile, can be changed by simply loosening the preload and removing the spring seat lock ring. The spring can then slide over the end eye, making it easy to optimize shock performance and sag.
The updated shock’s blue trail high-speed compression valve now provides a wider adjustment range. Importantly, this gives the rider more distinct alternatives to choose between when customizing setup. This new wider range also adds support in the pedal mode, making the bike a more efficient climber. The golden DH compression valve retains the same adjustment range as the original, which is already perfectly optimized for gravity riding.
We have developed two new cylinder heads for the TTX22m.2, making the shock more adaptable. The cylinder heads for both regular end eyes and trunnion mounts now have a side-by-side reservoir design. This means the shocks are more compact and can be fitted on a wider range of bikes. For trunnion, a traditional in-line piggyback version will also be available.
