- Charger 2.1 revelation upgrade
So you’ve got the Rev charger rc which is actually meant to be pretty good – although it’s not a sealed bladder damper like the charger 2 / 2.1 etc?
It would be a bit better I’d imagine, but I suspect it’s not going to be night and day better.
I did moco to charger 2 with a Yari and that was noticeable, but you’re starting with a better damper in the first place.Posted 3 months agoorangespydermanSubscriber
I have Fast 3-way on my Boxxer (they do the 3 way and the up cartridges, iirc). It’s very good and isn’t the 240 quid the fitted cost? I had mine done by Fast themselves in France (am based there) but it gives real adjustment through 20 or so clicks. The charger isn’t anything like as adjustable. Maybe give TFTuned a ring and discuss?Posted 3 months ago
I bought a Charger 2.1 damper from Germany for my Yari and installed it this morning.
Pretty straight forward.
Anyway…. in amongst the parts for installation were two bits that I couldn’t see what to do with. A rubber seal and a plastic washer thing.
Did anyone else have these parts? Initial garden testing and bouncing around shows no problems or noise:

Just to clarify with sam1988,Posted 2 months ago
Make sure that you’re not getting confused as to what damper you currently have in your Revelation. The 2019 Revelation RC came with a Motion Control compression damper not a charger damper as you state. The adjuster lever looks the same as a Charger RC but thats where the similarities end. Hope this helps you decidetinglesrackMember
I stand corrected! They show a Charger and a Motion Control on their service docs but only a Motion Contol version on their global website (how odd?)Posted 2 months ago
Considering you already have a charger damper i’d suggest €200 could be better spent elsewhere on the bike to make noticeable gains. If it were possible to do a blind ride test (not advised!) I bet no one would be able to tell the difference between a Charger and a Chager 2.1jjprestidgeMember
Does anyone know if the charger damper (considering one from the German site for my Yari) is the same unit, regardless of travel on the fork?
The ones listed don’t seem to show any travel options.
The airspring dictates travel – damper is the same for all travel lengths for a given fork.
