Fox 2.0 Piggyback RC2
2.0 Coil-Over Piggyback RC2 (Dual Speed Compression and Rebound Adjustment)
From short-course racing, to pounding through the dunes or hauling a load – The 2.0 RC2 provides consistent, heavy-duty, fade-free damping performance.
The demanding requirements of performance side-by-side vehicles necessitate a large diameter piggyback reservoir shock. The Fox 2.0″ coil-over piggyback shock, now available with dual speed compression adjust and rebound adjust will let you fine-tune your ride and handling to suit personal preference and terrain. The large diameter shock body and piggyback reservoir help to dissipate heat and keep things running cool.
FEATURES / TECHNOLOGIES
The installation is a piece of cake. All you need is a jack, 15mm socket and wrench and about 45 minutes. Everything bolts right up.
TheFox 2.0 Piggyback RC2 come withHigh/Low Speed Compression Adjust andRebound Adjust that all have 24 different settings.
Low-Speed Compression Adjustment
High-Speed Compression Adjustment
Between Joey from UTV Underground and I, we put about 100 miles on the RZR S with the new shocks in Glamis. As you can see by the jump pictures above, the 2.0 RC2’s did a great job soaking up uneven landings. Ride through the chop was smoother than stock, and I was much more confident in the vehicles ability to handle g-outs and sudden drop-offs.
The fit and finish of the shocks was perfect, and installation was a breeze. It was really nice to have an aftermarket product bolt up so nicely.
And the key thing that I like about the RC2’s is they are triple adjustable. 24 different settings for low and high speed compression and rebound mean that I can set my shocks for dunes of Glamis one day and the desert terrain of Ocotillo the next.

If you are an aggressive rider that needs more “capacity” than stock shocks can deliver, I would highly recommend upgrading to the 2.0 Piggyback RC2.
Fox has also recently introduced their 2.0 Position Sensitive shocks that are available in 6.5″ (good for the rear of the Polaris RZR S), 8.5″ and 10″ lengths.More info.
