    Default Pivot Mach 6 + Push Industries ElevenSix Coil over shock

    Hi all, firstly best wishes for the silly season. For me Christmas came early when my Push Industries ElevenSix coil over shock turned up for my Mach 6. I forked out the big bucks on it 10 days ago purchasing it through their Australian distributor NS Dynamics from Annerley QLD. The process involves a brief chat with the guys at NS to work out your weight, riding style and how you like things set up and what bike it's going on. They then get on to Push in the US who put the shock together, tune it to your specs, set it for your bikes leverage ratio then send it on to NS. I was pretty happy with the speed of the process from order to arrival so I could play with it before Christmas.

    So today I got off work hurried home and put it on the bike. The shock is replacing a 2015 Fox Float X Factory CTD that was retro fitted with the EVOL canister. I was generally happy with the shock but was always looking for something that would make my bike even better. After a lot of reading I pulled the trigger on the ElevenSix and I'm keen to get out and test it. The ElevenSix weighs in at a fairly hefty 834g Vs the Fox at 417g so I've gained 417g. That said the bike is still pretty light (for an AM enduro rig) at just over 13kg. I had a wee stack at Thredbo on Monday and slightly overextended my left elbow so I'll have to wait until the 29th before I test it. I will update the thread once I have spent some time on it but until then here are a few pics of it fitted to the bike.

    The small red knob (left) is rebound, the 2 large grey knobs (right) are HSC and the Small blue knobs are LSC. The lever between the knobs switches circuits between climb and descend modes.

    If all else fails it is a dead set sexy looking shock. Will be interested to see the ride report as it is an interesting option, I am impressed with the turn around time for a full custom shock.

    Bam! And your money is gone

    ;)

    Just clears the frame, did you check with Push first to see if it would fit?

    Good luck with it!

    Yeah mate each ElevenSix is custom built for the bike and rider. They currently only have 30 bikes this shock is available for with more coming. They get the leverage ratio's for each bike from the manufacturer then build the shock to get the best out of it. They work pretty closely with these companies. For example this is the only coil over that Pivot allow on the Mach 6 without voiding the warranty.

    Yeah it looks hot! I'm going to be riding Stromlo with some mates on the 29th and 30th so I'll bang up some initial thoughts after that. It's going to be a long 5 days!!!!

    Such a good bit of kit for those who really like to fiddle with settings. Been keen on one for a while I just have commitment issues😂
