How to adjust the Air-Volume of a Magura Shock
A few months ago we shared the secrets of how to change the air chamber size of both FOX and RockShox shocks. It is now time to delve into a MAGURA shock and get that internal volume dialled.
Before the release of a new bike, each manufacturer spends a lot of time working with suspension experts, finding the correct tune for the bikes suspension characteristics. Nevertheless, it can sometimes happen that the performance of the shock is not perfect for every rider.
For some the rear is too progressive, perhaps not using enough of the suspension travel; for others it may be too linear chopping through too quickly and not giving not enough feedback from the ground.
If you are having problems with your shocks performance, you can easily adjust the characteristics by adjusting the air chamber volume of the shock. If your shock is too linear, it is advisable to reduce the air chamber volume, if it is too progressive and does not use much suspension travel, the air chamber volume should be increased.
