The Turbo Levo link brings the descending performance found in our Stumpjumper and SL links to the Levo. By increasing the progressivity it helps prevent harsh bottom outs while maintaining small bump sensitivity and offering more mid-stroke support. What does this translate to on the trail? The Levo link makes the bike maintain traction better while remaining composed through big hits and providing a more solid platform to push against in corners and jumping.

Whether you are using the stock shock or a coil, the Turbo Levo link will allow you to tune the rear end to feel better all around.

  • 158 mm of travel with stock 210×52.5 mm shock
  • Progression increases to 23% from 16%
  • Keeps geometry identical to stock geometry
  • Sealed Enduro MAX bearings
  • CNC’d out of 6061-T6 Aluminum in the USA
  • Colors: Black, silver, orange

Setup FAQs

This depends on what you’re mainly riding, but both work really well. For trails with lots of rock and roots we recommend the coil set up as it will smooth these out really well and for trails with lots of big hits the air will always feel more bottomless. Even with volume spacers the air shock does not feel harsh at the end of travel.

Using the spring rate listed below will provide more bottom out resistance than the stock link. The rates are calculated for 30% sag so you could go up to a stiffer spring without making it sit too high if you want even more

The recommended spring rate listed below will also provide more small bump sensitivity than the stock link if the damping is properly adjusted, but if you would like more go down 50 lbs in spring rate.


Recommended Pressures and Spring Rates

Air Shocks

When setting up air shocks we recommend starting by replicating the sag point you have found to feel best with the stock link. General rule of thumb to get you close is multiply your air pressure with the stock link by 1.05 (5% increase). You always want to be at near 30% sag because if your sag is too much higher than that anti-squat will be lower and the bike won’t pedal as well. At 30% sag use damping and volume spacers to tune the shock’s feel throughout its stroke. Keep in mind that damping is not position sensitive. If you like how the damping feels during a certain portion of your bike’s travel play with the volume spacers and don’t tweak damping yet.

Coil Shocks

Due to the weight of this bike we don’t recommend running a coil unless you are below 180 lbs. 800 lb springs do exist, but air shocks will be easier to tune for people in this weight range.
