Anyone know when or where it will be available? My RC is begging for upgrade.

If you only have the boxxer RC, do you have to buy the solo-air cartridge as well or am I just mixing up marketing buzz words?

australia was actually founded by criminals and its original purpose was for england to send over its criminals so the brits wouldnt have to deal with them in England, minding this was over 100 yrs ago.

Nope, you can stick with your coil spring (in fact unless weight is a concern, the coil spring will perform better than the air) and just install the damper in place of the Mission/Motion Control damper. The spring is in the left leg (as viewed by the rider), damper in the right leg.

For those interested in upgrading though, Avalanche also do a very nice Boxxer cartridge too for about the same price, worth checking out. It's open bath, which compared to the Charger damper has the upside of less to go wrong, more oil to lubricate the fork and longer service intervals, but with the downside of more weight and the potential for aeration of your damper oil. We aren't affiliated with Avalanche in any way btw, just suspension nerds appreciating good work :)

Does anyone know if there might be a retrofit Charger damper for 170mm Lyrik forks?

I am spoiled, because the 150mm Pike feels better than my 170mm Lyrik RC2DH in some aspects…

Curious as to how much benefit is to be had from the damper vs. the new seals and air spring design. Trying to figure out if it's worth me pulling the trigger on a damper now, or starting to save for a new fork at the end of the year…

Put some time in on my new charger damper today…

Holy what an improvement!!!! I was running the 2013 Boxxer RC, and it seriously feels like a whole new fork after the charger. I'm terrible at relaying any kind of important information, but I just thought I'd let you guys know this is easily the best $369 I've spent on my DH bike

Any other changes to your Boxxer other than the Charger damper? New seals as well? I have a 2012 WC that I would love to do the upgrade to but was wondering if you change the damper what else should be done… could get expensive.
