    I just received a new pair of ice iridium Juliets, and with the smaller nosebombs they fit great. But, I was wondering if I might be able to use an extra set of X squared T-shocks I have sitting around to relax the fit slightly and save the flex coupler a little wear and tear.The X-squared shocks are a little longer, but it appears that they could be trimmed down to size with a razorblade. Has anyone done this?

    Thanks!

    The XS Tshocks are hollow. If you cut them and puncture the air pocket inside them, they may not perform as well. Just a thought. Might be better off modifying a regular Juliet T shock by trimming its thickness a bit.

    I called oakley to buy a set of t-shocks for my x squared and they sent me shocks for juliet. The fit just fine.

    I called Oakley just a couple weeks ago and they sent me a brand new set of the hollow t-shocks for my XS. Either they literally JUST ran out, or maybe the CSR you talked to made a mistake. The guy who helped me out sounded like a big fan and really knew his stuff.

    Krank, are you sure the XS shocks have an air pocket? They just seem hollow with a really thin layer of rubber.
