The best setup for you personally will depend on your size and weight, your riding style and local trails. So even if we get the base tunes dialled, there's more performance to come if you're willing to get stuck in and tune up your suspension. Here we have some excellent resources to help you get the most out of your Rockshox suspension.
If you only do one thing when you get your new Airdrop bike, make sure you sag your suspension correctly. It only takes a couple of minutes and it's the single biggest thing you can do to ensure your rear shock is going to perform well.
We recommend setting up the sag on your Airdrop Edit to 30% as a good starting point. Some customers report that running up to 40% works well for them, and the suspension is progressive enough to handle it, but 30% is a good place to start. You may find that you need a little more pressure than Rockshox recommends.
In addition to your fork's external tuning controls, your new Rockshox Revelation, Pike or Lyrik forks can be tuned simply using Rockshox Bottomless Tokens. Bottomless Tokens are designed to reduce the volume in the positive air chamber, which will make the suspension more progressive.
If you find that your forks are 'diving' too far into their travel, or you're bottoming them out too often, you may consider fitting a couple more tokens. It's a straightforward procedure outlined in this Rockshox video.
