After debuting on their mid- and long-travel single crown forks, then migrating to the SID, Rockshox has quickly rolled out their new DebonAir and Charger 2 systems to virtually the whole line. That includes the new 2019 Rockshox Boxxer, which also gets a moot-inspired dual crown design and room for bigger wheels and tires.

The new DH-specific DebonAir spring increases negative spring volume for a more supportive yet supple ride. The seals and materials were also updated to reduce friction, giving it much better small bump sensitivity.

The Charger 2 damper provides external high- and low-speed compression damping controls. Already have a modern Boxxer fork? You can upgrade to the new DebonAir spring system ($42 / €47* / £42) and/or the Charger 2 damper ($360 / €389* / £347* *includes VAT)cartridge by simply swapping out those parts – Rockshox will sell both separately.

Externally, the biggest change is the new, flatter crown. Inspired by MX bikes, it allows you to keep the stack height low even with larger 29er wheels and tires. Yes, the new Boxxer is all about big wheels, with models for 27.5″ Boost and 29er Boost.

Shown here in red, the Boxxer World Cup gets all of those upgrades for $1699 / €1889* / £1689*. There’s also a new Boxxer RC (comes in black), which gets the DebonAir spring but gets a Charger RC cartridge with high-speed controls only and a self-bleeding, low maintenance design. Retail is $1309 / €1449* / £1299*.

Both forks and the upgrade parts will ship in June 2018.
