Rock Shox Marketing Terminology and What We Think It Means
(Rock Shox marketing info gives definitions that we struggle to understand.)
Mission Control: A highly adjustable damper including floodgate that can be turned on and off.
Motion Control: Despite the current marketing info, we understand this to be Rock Shox's stable platform system.
Turn Key: Lockout system with only on or off positions. Compatible with PopLoc remotes. Has a blow-off mechanism for unforeseen impacts.
Dual Air: Independently adjustable positive and negative air spring chambers.
Solo Air: Uses a single valve to simultaneously fill both positive and negative air chambers. Simplifies fork set-up while retaining the plushness of the Dual-Air system.
Isolite Cushion: Don't know. Rock Shox says "The patented IsoLite cushion is designed to have a specific compression, rebound, and spring rate relative to travel."
2-Step Air: Travel adjustment. Features up to 45mm of adjustment, solo air spring and is fully active in the low travel setting.
Air U-Turn: Travel Adjustment, up to 30mm, via external adjuster. Spring rate changes automatically as travel changes. Used with Dual Air spring system.
U-Turn: Travel Adjustment, up to 45mm to a coil spring via external adjuster. Spring rate adjusts as travel changes without affecting preload.
Maxle QR: 20mm through-axle system that's fast to use.
PopLoc: Adjustable Lockout. As well as turning on and off, allows adjustment of the "blow-off" point, which we understand to be the same as the Floodgate.
