Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazing shock This shock is so light, it's like it's not even there. Got this on sale for $459 for a 1500 dollar shock, that's amazing... Bought my bike for a tune up at a bike shop and everyone was envying my shock.. :) Complete lockout feature is great for the hills. Looks great, works awesome. Does it squeak like other people said?? only if you don't oil it and clean it.. take care of the shock and it will take care of you... Setup it up according to your weight... next step is to get a remote for this bad boy... Tip: clean the shock once in a while, do complete maintainance on it ever 6 months it will last you a long time 07 August 2014

Rated 1 out of 5 by High rate of stanchion wear I bought an excellent Rocky Mountain Altitude RSL 90 frame when CRC had them on offer a couple of years back. It came with a DT Swiss XR Carbon shock. At first, it was superb - very good shock absorption, although the lockout never fully locked out the shock (a friend's identical shock did lock out completely). However, after not excessive riding, the stanchion started to wear through, worst on the rear side, less so on the front. It started leaking air, and I've seen other reviews with similar problems - the same as the other reviewer here with the same problem. I've just bought a Fox RP23 with boost valve and fitted it to the RM, and it is brilliant - even better shock absorption than the DT Swiss was to begin with, and much better reliability and after sales back up / repair if required. CRC, however, are brilliant, as is the RM Altitude frame. Stay clear of this shock unless you feel the price is right ! 30 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by functionality meets lightweight performance Recently purchased this rear air shock and finally had time to fit it to my Giant AC-2. Set at 6 inch travel, the valve fouls on the swing arm however if you drop into any hydraulic/pneumatic specialist, they can make you a 90º schrader valve replacement. Apart from that little hickup the shock is a top quality piece engineering. The lockout is a serious lifesaver when you have no shuttle and the only way back is the way you came. To top it all off, set up is a breeze. Top notch bargain, thanks chain reaction! 15 October 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Awesome Shock I feel this is a huge upgrade to my X-Fusion Shock. It is uber plush and very very responsive, I feel the tuning is micro detailed to really suit your needs. I love the absolute lock off it give you that instant hard tail feel at the flick of a switch. Also I find the rotation bearing a nice add on but maybe it takes a bit off my lateral stiffness of my rear end. Well up to today all good. 27 May 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very Poor Durability and Custopmer Support from DT Swiss I have a Rocky Mountain Altitude 90 RSL and this shock comes as standard on the frame. It is probably the lightest shock on the market and with the reputation behind DT Swiss I expected that it would not give any trouble. After about two months of use I noticed that the black coating on the stanchion was starting to wear off and every time the shock compressed it would make a noise. Over time this noise quickly became louder and the coating wore away even more on both sides. I took the shock to my bike mechanic and replaced the seals and recommended that the shock be dismantled once a month for a cleaning/mini service if I was to get any kind of life out of it. After 10 months of rising (1 to 2 rides per weeks) the stanchion had worn so much that it no longer held air. I returned the shock under warranty and was given every kind of excuse as to why this was my fault and that there was nothing wrong with the shock. After weeks of communication and mentions of consumer rights act and small claims court, the shock was eventually repaired under warranty. I have been using the repaired shock now for 3 months (it got a brand new stanchion) and I can see the black coating coming off again. While this shock was being repaired I purchased a special offer, non-carbon DT Swiss from CRC, for about EUR 100 so that I could continue to ride. After 3 to 4 months the black coating on the stanchion is also starting to wear away. I also have a DT Swiss from fork on my bike and it has never given an ounce of trouble, the black coating is intact after 18 months of riding and I am very happy with it's performance. That said, I will never put a DT shock on the back of my bike again. I'm on the look out for a bargain Fox shock on CRC or Wiggle at present, as soon as I have one the DT's will be consigned to the emergency use only box. 07 May 2013

Answer: 
The DT Swiss shocks require their own mounting hardware (linked below). You can determine the width and diameter by simply measuring the existing hardware in your Monarch.

Answer: 
You need to measure the opening of your frame where the shock bolts in.. mine was 22mm opening so I ordered a 22mm x 8mm mounting kit and it works great with the spherical eyelet.

Answer: 
When replacing a shock it is imperative that you choose a shock with the same eye-to-eye length as the original. Your NUD2 is running a 165mm length, with a 38mm stroke.
These DT XR shocks are currently listed in 190mm and 200mm lengths, so will not be suitable.

Answer: 
Es muy probable que este amortiguador te vaya bien, únicamente debes de asegurarte que sean las mismas medidas. De igual manera es importante que se cambien los casquillos, seguramente tu amortiguador anterior con la resistencia que tiene haya amoldado tus casquillos.
