If I am not mistaken the sachs shocks are what comes on the new 2011 S.
If you compare the Fox to a 1K each racing shock I would agree with you. If you compare Fox to the old LE shock I think you need to put down your crack pipe. I have no info on the Sachs shocks. Good Luck and let us know you like them.i personally dont think the fox podiums are that great. im getting a 2011 s with the sachs, so i guess i find out if they are crap.
