I replaced my 7 YO Fox Float R with the Radium and the improvement is very noticeable. The ride is as plush but this takes bigger hits before bottoming at the same sag setting. The rebound ability when the rear wheel strikes objects seems very different and just clears stumps and such much better. It increases your confidence to do jumps you wouldn't have tried before. It also climbs more efficiently and you get a lockout feature as well so it is superior at all levels compared to my vintage Fox Float R. I can't recommend this enough for its performance and value.
