My bike came with the fox remote for the front and rear suspension, I only have it connected to the rear though. To me it's as much of a game changer as what a dropper seat post is, being able to keep up the momentum when you hit an assent makes life so much easier.

Though, If I wasn't running 1x10 I wouldn't be using it as the fox remote is huge, works well in replace of the front shifter.

That's an understatement, it has it's own landing strip!

I was kinda soured on them by the (very) rubbish one on my Suntour forks. Just bought some Fox Floats for a new bike and ordered the manual switch version as opposed to the remote version despite the cost being the same!

+1, totally agree, I like using it and it's there so why not?

Pretty even results.

To be fair, my old forks had the crown lock out and it wasnt hard to bend down at twist, and my mates bike also has it, which is easy enough to operate.

However, the PopLoc is easier. I know what you mean as you can keep the momentum and lock it out while still having two hands on the bars.

I use mine, whenever im on the road, climbs or flats. Does make it easier and energy isnt wasted with your forks bouncing all over the shop Very Happy

I hated lockout on my old forks, nicer felt much benefit on the ups but you certainly knew about it when you left it on by mistake on the way back down...

New forks are adjustable travel and never use that either, very much a fit and forget type person though haven't got time for 'adjustments' and 'settings'...


Orrrr im just crap so no matter how much I fiddle around with the nobs I'm not going any faster Laughing

Laughing This is me too! Tbh I used to have poploc and ended up never using it. I actually prefer climbing with suspension still active and never use propedal either. I set my air levels quite high in the first place though so I think that helps.

Guess it comes down to what works for each individual.

[quote="mata"]I have pop-lock on my Cube Analog as standard, it can be useful on the way to and from the trails... not so good when you forget it's on and your bouncing (*banging) down the trail...quote]
I am always doing that on my Cube Attention

I dont have it front or back, i do tend to lock the forks out when i remember to but then when i do i dont always remember to open them back out again.

Just got Pro Pedal at the back so no lockout but if i had it id prob use it sporadically like i do the front.

I sorta like the idea of havin it on remote but considering the tiny amount of effort of havin to lean forward for a second i have to do now would i want more stuff on my handlebars? I dont think i would.

No poploc on my hardtail.I just lock out for riding on roads - then reach down and turn it off for offroad sections.I find I don't have to look down to do it.

At 1st i thought poploc(remote lockout) was a little gimmicky.........But when i had some new forks fitted last year they came with poploc and tbh for me they make the job easier, so yes imo worth having......... Smile
