What do RockShox bottomless tokens do?
RockShox forks offer the ability to adjust how much the air spring ramps up using red colored volume spacers known as Bottomless Tokens. These Tokens add bottom out support and alter the ride height, which can be great for aggressive riders.
How many bottomless tokens should I use?
Check your fork against the chart below to see if you’re running the correct number of spacers. “For more aggressive riders, I recommend one or two tokens at 160mm”, explains Cancellier. “For each 10mm decrease in travel, I add one token.

Tokens and bands are basically the same thing in forks or rear shock. The suspension is using air springs. the Tokens and bands are used to reduce the volume inside the air chamber. This change of size is used to effect the way the air pressure increases in the air chamber.
