Rebound adjust allows you to change the speed that the shock and fork rebound. If you didn’t have rebound adjust these suspension elements would rebound at the same speed as they compress and this would cause the wheel to jump up off the ground. This would mean that the rider does not have full control of the bike. The suspension must therefore be suppressed during the rebound phase. This is achieved by means of rebound adjust.
If the rebound adjust is set too low, the fork or shock rebounds too fast after the compression phase and the wheel jumps off the ground. If the rebound adjust is set too high, the fork rebounds too slowly and cannot react to bumps in the ground which are very close together.
The rebound is mainly adjusted via a red adjusting knob. This knob is positioned either on the top of the fork crown or at the bottom of the fork stanchion. Picture 1 Picture 2 Picture 3 Often the knob is marked „Rebound“. On Manitou products this rebound knob is blue and is positioned at the bottom of the right fork stanchion. On Marzocchi the knob is black and is positioned at the bottom of the left fork stanchion.
The BoXXer R2C2 has two knobs at the bottom left of the fork which are used to adjust the rebound. The silver knob controls the rebound speed when the fork compresses only a little. The red knob controls the rebound speed when the fork uses the major part of its available travel.
The Vivid shock has two adjusting bolts for rebound. The silver knob controls the rebound speed when the shock only compresses a little. The red knob controls the rebound speed when the shock uses the majority of its available travel.
Now press down on the fork and let go of the handlebar again. The fork rebounds back into its original position after the compression phase. Now turn the adjusting knob click by click, checking the rebound whilst doing so. The rebound speed should be adjusted so that the front wheel almost lifts off the ground. You can check for optimum adjustment by using the so-called curbstone test. Get on the bike and ride off the curb. The fork should only bob once.
Do not cycle with rebound damping that has been set too quickly, as your bike could otherwise get out of control
Do not ride over obstacles with the lockout switched on, as the suspension could otherwise become damaged
