I don't personally have these shocks, but I do know some guys who have had them on different sleds. They seem to like them. A good shock, and nice and light too. Just make sure to have them valved for your weight and ride style. I've heard of guys who install right out of the box and hate them, and then sell them cheap to someone else thinking they are garbage. Then the guy that bought them gets them set up properly and they are great.

You might be able to order them valved right from Fox.

I would get a hold of Ian at Monster Performance. That guy knows everything there is to know about shocks. He'll point you in the right direction. Might even set you up with some shocks. He can valve them for you too.

Google Monster Performance. I think the website is www.monsterperf.com

Good Luck.

I would get the Evol R's for a Summit. The great thing about Evol R's is that you can control ride height and bottom out resistance separately which is really important if you want your sled to be easy to carve and handle bumps at the same time.. Just my 2 cents... Love my Evol R's !

I love mine... i know people talk about the valving and stuff, but i put mine on right out of the box and loved them. It did take me a few trips to get the PSI dialed in. But after i found the right PSI for me i havent had a single complaint about them (60 PSI). They make your sled ride so much smoother, and take bumps and jumps like a champ. An im sure they just get better as you go up in $ haha (evol, evelv r's).

Had both the Evol R's and the Float 2's, but on two different machines. I prefer the extra volume of the Evol R's. THey are much more compliant at the top of hte shock stroke than the Float's are. I bought them thinking the rebound what was I wanted, but I don't toy with it too much. They are more money than the Float's, but are the smoothest shock I've ridden to date for my style.
