The Avalanche Advantage over the the Fit RC2 cartridge:
A larger (20mm vs 15.5mm) 4 port rebound valve that has more low to midspeed transition control and optional high speed shim configurations for different spring rates and rider conditions.
A midvalve with user tunable shims/valving that provides anti-dive feature while still blowing off without low speed harshness on small bumps.
The same DHF proven design (20 mm) 4 port compression valve with optional revalving charts and shims available to fine tune your fork for your individual riding conditions and ability.
User serviceable, all parts are available here at Avalanche to service or modify the internal set-up.
Revalving kits can be purchased from Avalanche or any suspension tuning shop that carries standard 6 mm shims.
High speed adjustment is at best a compromise of the original shim stack, depending on the high speed spring preload adjuster rate and where the pressure is applied
on the shim stacks you can get less than desirable results in damping feel, i.e. preloading the outside rim of the shim may make the high speed stiffer,
but also creates mid and low speed harshness in the damper.
The original RC/RC2 large compression adjuster protrusion at the bottom of the fork is eliminated and cleanly redesigned.
