FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 27.5 100 iRD FIT Fork - 2016 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 27.5 100 iRD FIT Fork - 2016
For the new model year, FOX Racing Shox has radically rebuilt the 32 Float 27. 5 100 iRD FIT Fork. The spring, the damper, and even the chassis itself adapt many of the upgrades and innovations found on the revolutionary 36 Float models for use in an XC fork. It also includes an iRD remote switch, which relocates the damper adjuster to an electronic switch on your handlebars for easier, mid-flight ride dialing. Adjustability aside for now, a tiny-stanchioned fork's real job is to disappear on the trail. A lighter, stiffer chassis helps the 32 Float toward this goal, making it FOX's best featherweight, barely-there option for the aggressive XC climber who prefers the middle-ground of 27. 5-inch wheels. FOX also lightens the load with the new Float Air Spring, which is now a dual-chambered, self-equalizing affair instead of the half air, half coil setup of the previous model. While the air spring itself is the result of a feat of impressive engineering, it doesn't exactly take a physicist to recognize that air is lighter than a metal spring. While the new air spring and lighter chassis are the key material changes, the new model year's Fit4 damper adjustment system represents a change in functional philosophy. The new 3-position Fit4 system toggles between Firm, Medium, and Open settings in a move that -- as the name suggests -- fits the fork's function to on-trail situations. The Open setting is the star, as it encompasses the range once divided between the old CTD system's Descend and Trail settings. Open also incorporates 22 adjustable sub settings, which lets you keep the new 32 Float's four-inches of travel wide open in order to take full advantage of the fork's high-riding tendencies and improved small bump compliance without sacrificing speed. The Medium setting is much firmer than the Trail setting was, handling duties ranging from fast trails to lumpy climbs, and the Firm lockout setting returns as the ideal platform for fire road transition or sprinting...

FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 27.5 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 27.5 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017
2016 saw a massive reworking of FOX Racing Shox's line, and we're happy to see the 2017 forks extending those much loved changes for another year of trail-shredding fun. The 2017 32 Float 27. 5 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork brings 120mm of plush -- but still XC -- travel to the table for smooth navigation and confident control over rough terrain. As with the 2016 version, this fork's steerer, crown, uppers, lowers, and Float Air spring shed weight compared to earlier iterations while at the same time getting an overall increase in stiffness for a sharp, responsive ride. The FIT4 damper's puffed out, 10mm shaft increases oil flow to the base valve, allowing the fork to ride high for quick, controlled recovery during everything from big, square hits to successive, small impacts. The 3-position Fit4 system also takes the reins from the old CTD system, changing the names from the overly-prescriptive categories of Climb, Trail, and Descend to a graduating scale covering Firm, Medium, and Open. While this change may read like an exercise in semantics, it entails a radical realignment of the 34 Float's capabilities that addresses virtually every issue we've had with CTD's damper in the past. FIT4 also migrates the adjustable sub settings from CTD's median Trail mode to the new Open setting. Open encompasses both Descend and Trail in order to take full advantage of the fork's high ride by handling most compression duties. This makes the fork that much more relevant to all-mountain situations, combining better small-bump compliance with more confident tracking through rock gardens and rough terrain. It doesn't wallow and handling stays on point. The Medium setting migrates much deeper into the firm side of compression than the Trail setting did, so it'll suffice in most conditions that don't require use of the big-bottomed Open setting. The Firm setting remains self-explanatory: an XC lock-out for turning on the afterburners when terrain allows. It'll likely see much less use i...

FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017
Blurring the lines between cross-country efficiency and trail-taming travel, the 2017 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT 4 Fork is aptly suited for achieving PRs on your local network and dismantling formidable stretches of trail alike. The 32 Float's 120mm of travel gives your 29er a plush feel across widely varying terrain, ranging from unruly rock gardens to root-latticed singletrack--all without sacrificing speed or feeling unwieldy across tight XC courses. The Float air spring is lightweight and provides excellent small-bump compliance. Its progressiveness can be adjusted with the addition of air volume spacers (sold separately), giving riders the ability to customize its feel for varying disciplines and terrain types. And like all of Fox's Factory forks, the 32 Float uses a buttery-smooth Kashima coating for improved sensitivity and enhanced durability. Carrying over the revised FIT4 damper found on 2016 Float models, the latest 32 Float serves up 3-position adjustability, with the ability to switch between Open, Medium, and Firm settings on-the-fly. When it's fully open, the FIT4 damper gives riders 22 clicks of low-speed compression adjustment for fine-tuning its feel to the terrain at hand. Slightly revised for 2017, the FIT4 damper is tuned for improved sensitivity without sacrificing overall support.

FOX Racing Shox 32 Float SC 27.5 100 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float SC 27.5 100 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork - 2017
After 2016's massive overhaul of FOX Racing Shox's fork line, the majority of its forks extend those changes into 2017 without any further tinkering with one big exception. The 2017 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float SC 27. 5 100 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork gets an entirely new chassis and returns lean, mean, and ready to shred XC courses. Billed as one of the lightest suspension forks available, this fork features a narrowed crown and the company's all-new Step-Cast lower leg design. Step Cast manifests as small cutouts in the lowers of the fork that open up extra clearance for rotors and spokes while simultaneously allowing the fork's stance to narrow by a whopping 10mm. This means less overall material and lowered weight, which, when paired with the hollowed out stepped lowers, results in claims that this fork clocks in as one of the lightest on the market. Whether you're out for a social spin or revving up on the start line, this featherweight construction paired with a stiff Boost axle makes for precise, responsive handling and flat out fun on almost any trail. The FIT4 damper returns unchanged from last year save a few minor tweaks and additional machining to fit within the new stepped lowers. This includes the puffed out, 10mm shaft, which increases oil flow to the base valve, allowing the fork to ride high for quick, controlled recovery during everything from big, square hits to successive, small impacts. The 3-position Fit4 system also takes the reins from the old CTD system, changing the names from the overly-prescriptive categories of Climb, Trail, and Descend to a graduating scale covering Firm, Medium, and Open.

While 2016 saw a major overhauling of FOX Racing Shox's line of forks, 2017 sees those changes extended without any additional updates--with the exception of the 32 Float 100mm family. The 2017 32 Float SC 27. 5 100 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork arrives on the scene with a completely revamped chassis.

FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 27.5 150 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 27.5 150 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017
After last year's much lauded overhaul, the 2017 Fox Racing Shox 34 Float 27. 5 150 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork returns relatively unchanged. The steerer, crown, uppers, lowers, and Float Air spring all shed weight compared to earlier versions while at the same time increasing stiffness for a snappy, responsive ride. Of course, weight savings are great on paper, but the fork really makes its bacon by dint of on-trail functionality. The Fit4's Damper's puffed out, 10mm shaft increases oil flow to the base valve, allowing the fork to ride high for quick, controlled recovery during everything from big, square hits to successive, small impacts. The 3-position Fit4 system also takes the reins from the old CTD system, changing the names from the overly-prescriptive categories of Climb, Trail, and Descend to a graduating scale covering Firm, Medium, and Open. While this change may read like an exercise in semantics, it entails a radical realignment of the 34 Float's capabilities that addresses virtually every issue we've had with the CTD damper in the past.

FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 27.5 160 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 27.5 160 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork - 2017
Striking just the right balance between relatively stiff tracking and lightweight efficiency, the Fox 34 Float 27. 5 160 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork gives your long-travel trail bike the rock-gobbling plushness needed to conquer technical terrain without the heavier feel of a 36 Float. Please note, this fork isn't directly available from Fox, instead it's an OE model we pulled from complete bike builds. Generally, Fox doesn't make the 34 Float in models over 150 millimeters of travel, but this fork goes into 160-millimeter territory for those wanting a long-travel option for their trail bike. Ultimately, it's a great choice if you're seeking a lightweight build for your trail bike, instead of going the route of a 36 Float. This particular version of the 34 Float enjoys the 3-position adjustability of its Fit4 damper, which gives you the option of running it Open, Medium, or Firm. In Open mode, you'll find low-speed compression tuning for getting its feel just right to the terrain at hand. Medium gives you a bit more efficiency on those long climbs and smooth trails where stiffening up the front end makes sense. And for times when a practical lock-out is needed, the Firm mode comes in handy for fire road climbs and asphalt slogs back to the trail head. Just in case you forget to unlock it, it comes with a blow-off that prevents damage when you hit a bump or pothole in Firm mode.

FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork (51mm Rake) - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork (51mm Rake) - 2017
There's nothing wrong with six-inch enduro bikes, but some of us enjoy the ups of trail riding as much as the DH, reveling in pedaling every inch of our dirt loops. FOX Racing Shox builds the 34 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork with 51mm Rake for those riders, adding a kicked-out axle to its newly reworked XC wagon wheel weapon. It's stiffer and lighter than the previous model, and it also hits the sweet spot of sub-5in travel that recommends it for aggressive XC or dicing through knotty root sections. A fork with 51mm of rake decreases the bike's trail, which results in less "dead" space between the steering axis and the hub. The design is an attempt to offset the floppy, low-speed steering issues that arise from the longer trails produced by taller wheels and slack geometries, so handling stays 26er-sharp at all speeds, whether climbing, ripping, or navigating switchbacks and tricky terrain. The FIT4 damper returns unchanged from last year. This includes the puffed out, 10mm shaft, which increases oil flow to the base valve, allowing the fork to ride high for quick, controlled recovery during everything from big, square hits to successive, small impacts.

FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 29 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork (51mm Rake) - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 29 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork (51mm Rake) - 2017
Conventional wisdom suggests 29ers are only viable at high speed on smooth hardpack. FOX Racing Shox doesn't give a damn. The brand's 34 Float 29 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork with 51mm Rake combines five inches of generous travel, a high-riding tendency, and an offset axle to aid in low-speed maneuvers -- in short, all of the benefits of wagon wheels' high angle of attack and none of the downsides that relegated earlier generations to the XC life. A fork with 51mm of rake decreases the bike's trail, which results in less "dead" space between the steering axis and the hub. The design is an attempt to offset the floppy, low-speed steering issues that arise from the longer trails produced by taller wheels and slack geometries, so handling stays 26er-sharp at all speeds, whether climbing, ripping, or navigating switchbacks and tricky terrain. The Fit4 returns unchanged for 2017, so it still toggles between a menu of Firm, Medium, and Open settings. The Open setting encompasses the range that FOX's old model, CTD, divided between Descend and Trail. We tend to spend most of our time in Open in order to take full advantage of the fork's high-riding tendencies, combining better small-bump compliance with more confident tracking across successive impacts and rough terrain. The Medium setting is much firmer now, handling duties ranging from rooty trails to climbing, and the Firm setting is now largely relegated to fast hardpack and fire road transitions. FOX's tinkering wasn't just confined to the damper, though, as the Float air spring now omits the negative coil in favor of a self-equalizing air assembly. This is similar to the air spring chamber system that made the re-worked 36 series such a success, and its omission of a steel coil is a key contributor to the overall claimed weight loss of 297 grams -- quite a feat when you consider that the latest 34 Float 29 also retains the 2016 model's gains in stiffness.

We don't think it's a stretch to assert that FOX Racing Shox's TALAS technology carries with it a futuristic air, one that suggests where mountain bike travel could be headed with time. As it is now, the 34 TALAS 27. 5 150-120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork offers its rider the choice to set the fork to either 150mm of bump-devouring plushness or 120mm of well-placed, responsive cush. This adjustability matches the trend toward do-it-all 27. 5in frames that we've seen dominating the industry as of late because if your trail bike was designed to go enduro on big lines yet climb like a nimble XC frame, it will only be as capable as its suspension. For 2017, FOX keeps its focus on leveling the playing field across its line, updating standards and letting the strong improvements it's made over the past two years stand unchanged for the most part. Introductions like FIT4 continue much as we've known them, receiving a slight retune for improved sensitivity this year. The FIT4 damper allows you to use the fork's travel in more clearly defined categories of Firm, Medium, and Open settings. The latter also includes a range of sub settings, which give room to fine-tune just how open you want the fork to ride, depending on how rowdy you plan on getting. Medium has become a responsive setting suited to lightly rooted flats and fast, rock-lined singletrack. We'd reserve the Firm setting purely for climbs on smooth singletrack and fire road transitions, as its name doesn't overstate its lockout abilities.

FOX Racing Shox 36 Float 27.5 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 36 Float 27.5 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017
FOX Racing Shox's history of targeted innovation demonstrates that it doesn't feel the need to constantly make updates for the sake of having something new to boast about. For 2017, FOX is content with the advancements it made last year and confident that the design is the best it has to offer -- for now. The 36 Float 27. 5 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork's wide range of adjustability and lightweight, consistent, dual-spring air chamber continue to provide an enviable balance between weight and enduro capability. As you and your enduro rig chug down apocalyptic lines, you'll have the option to choose between the FIT4 damper's Firm, Medium, and Open settings. For anything more daunting than sidewalk cracks, we see no reason not to choose the latter, which itself features an additional range of sub settings to allow you to take full advantage of the fork's range of high-riding travel. Firm and Medium encompass their own well-defined spaces. Medium is able to take over on lumpy flats and rolling stretches of unruly hard pack, and Firm's lockout setting is relegated strictly to fire road transitions and the steepest, smoothest climbs. This versatility and control is backed by FOX's dual-chamber air spring, a self-equalizing design that dumped weight over previous coil spring models. Additionally, you'll have the reliability of Kashima-coated aluminum stanchions and magnesium lowers offering the dependability you've come to know and expect from FOX.

With all the changes we saw in the 2016 line of FOX Racing Shox forks, it's nice to see them back relatively unchanged for the 2017 model year. As such, the 2017 FOX Racing Shox 36 Float 29 150 HSC/LSC FIT Fork (51mm Rake) is back with the much-loved updates that took the enduro and XC worlds by storm.As with the 2016 version, the crown and magnesium lowers are lighter, lower, and stiffer than previous iterations, which makes for easier work cleaning steep climbs between downhill fun zones. The changes also net shorter axle-to-crown measurements across the board, so the frame's head angle doesn't drastically change between forks. While the materials in the chassis are roughly the same, FOX opts for a newly formulated, higher-viscosity proprietary fork oil for smoother, more responsive travel.The new Float air spring also enjoys significant revision over the pre-2016 model, with FOX seeing off the old negative coil spring in favor a dual-chamber air spring. This neat trick of metal-to-air alchemy may be the single biggest contributor to the fork's weight loss, and when it's paired with the reduced number of smoother seals, it means the fork requires less force to initiate travel. It maintains excellent small bump compliance without completely obscuring your feel for the trail. The air spring can also be dialed to ramp-up harder by customizing its compression curve with internal spacers, and the other leg's HSC/LSC FIT damper lets you tune the fork's behavior to complement your own approach toward big hits, slow inputs, and everything in between.

MRP Ribbon 130 Boost Fork - 29/27.5 Plus MRP Ribbon 130 Boost Fork - 29/27.5 Plus
With more adjustments than just about any fork on the market, the performance-obsessed engineers at MRP designed the Ribbon 130 Boost 29/27. 5in Plus Fork to hold up against the hard-hitting demands of all-mountain ripping while offering up a totally custom feel to meet your specific riding needs and adapt local trail systems. Not only did MRP succeed in this ambitious endeavor of creating a fine-tunable fork for discerning riders and suspension geeks, but they did so while keeping its weight competitively low at only 4. 2 pounds. This particular Ribbon fork features 130-millimeters of terrain-taming travel for your all-mountain and enduro adventures. Boost axle spacing makes for precise tracking of the front wheel over more turbulent sections of the trail, while the 35-millimeter stanchions offer reduced flex and stiff tracking over the aforementioned rough stuff. Since the Ribbon is named after the infamous Grand Junction trail that's touted as one of the most "unique slab rock trails that's as fast as your bike will permit," it makes sense that the Ribbon is built to excel on the steepest descents at high speeds, but also easily pick apart technical terrain with methodical precision. Then, the Ribbon's FulFill air spring gives you the fine-tunable feel of independently adjustable positive and negative air chambers, which is ideal if you want to customize your fork's operation and feel to near-obsessive realms. Whether you need it to be smooth and supple off-the-top or incredibly supportive, the Ribbon is your fork of choice with its independent air chambers. By integrating Ramp Control technology into the Ribbon, MRP ensures you won't have to add or remove volume spacers ever again. This technology delivers 16-position adjustment with the twist of a knob, tuning your fork's behavior to handle harsh hits where you'd normally bottom out. Meanwhile, PSST valves bleed out the lowers when drastic changes in elevation and temperature mess with the operation and f...

MRP Ribbon 150 Boost Fork - 27.5in MRP Ribbon 150 Boost Fork - 27.5in
Providing more adjustments than virtually any fork on the market, the performance-obsessed engineers created the Ribbon 150 Boost 27. 5in Fork to withstand the serious demands of all-mountain thrashing while offering up a totally custom feel to your specific riding needs and local trail ecosystems. Not only did MRP succeed in this ambitious endeavor of creating a fine-tunable fork for discerning riders and suspension geeks, but they did so while keeping its weight competitively low at only 4. 15 pounds. This particular Ribbon fork boasts 150-millimeters of terrain-taming travel for your all-mountain and enduro endeavors. BOOST axle spacing makes for precise tracking of the front wheel over rough and rowdy sections of trail. Seeing that MRP's local trails in Grand Junction, Colorado are some of the most challenging and diverse in the country, it makes perfect sense they'd create the Ribbon with 35-millimeter stanchions for reduced flex and stiff tracking over the rough stuff, and at a touch lighter than the competition's forks with 36-millimeter stanchions. Interestingly enough, the Ribbon takes its name an infamous trail in the Grand Junction area, touted as one of the most "unique slab rock trails that's as fast as your bike will permit." This brutal testing ground sets the bar high for the Ribbon's performance, meaning it had to excel on the steepest descents at high speeds, but also make easy working of picking across technical terrain with methodical precision. The Ribbon's new FulFill air spring gives you the fine-tunable feel of independently adjustable positive and negative air chambers, which is ideal for the rider customizing their fork's operation and feel to near-obsessive realms. Whether you need it to be smooth and supple off-the-top or incredibly supportive, the Ribbon is your fork of choice with its independent air chambers. MRP integrated Ramp Control technology into the Ribbon as well, which means you won't have to add or remove volume spacers ...

RockShox Lyrik RCT3 Dual Position Air 160 Boost Fork - 27.5in - 2017 RockShox Lyrik RCT3 Dual Position Air 160 Boost Fork - 27.5in - 2017
The 27. 5in RockShox Lyrik RCT3 Dual Position Air 160 Boost Fork brings all the hard-charging ability we loved about the previous Lyric and adds newly tapered legs, an elongated brace, and a Boost axle width for increased stiffness and control on almost any terrain you dare approach. Since the Pike has become the default enduro fork, comparing the two is an apt exercise. The key differences between the Pike and the renovated Lyrik lie in the latter's body, which enjoys a general reinforcement throughout. The 35mm stanchions are similar to the Pike's, but they beef out more at the crown. The crown itself is also sturdier, as are the lowers, and the overall effect is a noticeable gain in stiffness. If you often find yourself questioning the prudence of your line selection, then you'll appreciate the Lyrik's stiff, confident tracking as an alternative to constantly correcting lines in the middle of terrain features. The Lyrik runs a Dual Position Air spring with a large negative chamber and a new SKF cartridge seal that nets claimed reductions in friction and increases in intervals between servicing. This seal and chamber combination creates a smooth initial stroke and contributes to the Lyrik's uncanny ability to stay on top of successive, small bumps and alleviate brake dive--both of which it does better than the Pike. RockShox preserved certain elements of the original Lyrik that made it the all-mountain favorite to begin with, including the RCT3 Charger damper, Fast Black coating, and Solo Air shock design. Depending on whether you're climbing up or dropping in, the fork's settings can be dialed by the three-position RCT3 switch, which lets you choose discreet amounts of damping for bigger hits, trail terrain, or cross-country speed. RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature indulges the Lyrik's terrain-gobbling tendencies by keeping recovery between hits short, so you'll always have that cushion, even through multiple successive bumps.

When RockShox first unveiled the Pike, the previous iteration of the 27. 5in Lyrik RCT3 Solo Air 160 Boost Fork met an ignominious end at its hands. After the dust settled, it was clear that the Pike was king. But the Lyrik is back, and it's brought a host of chassis updates and a Boost axle in a bid to supplant the upstart Pike as RockShox's go-to for enduro and all-mountain applications. The king is dead; long live the king. The key differences between the Pike and the revived Lyrik lie in the body, which enjoys a general reinforcement throughout. The 35mm stanchions are similar to the Pike's, but they beef-out more at the crown. The crown itself is also sturdier, as are the lowers, and the overall effect is a noticeable gain in stiffness that takes full advantage of the robust Boost axle standard. If you often find yourself questioning the prudence of your line selection, then you'll appreciate the Lyrik's stiff, confident tracking as an alternative to constantly correcting lines in the middle of terrain features. The Lyrik also has a larger negative chamber than the Pike and a new SKF cartridge seal that nets claimed reductions in friction and increases in intervals between servicing.

It's got an uncanny ability to stay on top of successive, small bumps and alleviate brake dive -- both of which it does better than the Pike. Despite the fact that we see the Lyrik bumping the Pike from the all-mountain throne, RockShox was wise enough to preserve certain elements of the ousted fork model that made it the favorite to begin with.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Dual Position Air 150 Fork - 29in - 2017 RockShox Pike RCT3 Dual Position Air 150 Fork - 29in - 2017
The six inches of travel and 29in wheel capacity that RockShox packed into the Pike RCT3 Dual Position Air 150 Fork make it like middle-of-the-road Goldilocks of forks. Just kidding. It's nothing like that. If anything, this wagon-wheel brute and its 35mm stanchions are like Papa Bear -- if Papa Bear also ate the other two bears and the ringleted intruder. The burly stanchions are backed up by the fork's tapered steerer tube to fight deflection under hard braking, aggressive cornering, and emergency maneuvers through lines that turn a shade darker than "just right" after you've dropped in. The lowers are also reinforced courtesy of RockShox's Power Bulge design, which increases the amount of room for oversized bushings for a stiffer wheel-to-fork interface. The resulting chassis tracks so well that RockShox felt confident outfitting the Pike with a lighter weight 15mm Maxle Lite quick-release thru-axle to help keep the weight down for climbing at the highest levels of competition. The Dual Position air spring gives you the option of tweaking travel by 30mm. You can run a shorter stroke for improved handling while taking advantage of the fork's low weight on climbs. Extending the travel to its full, glorious six inches practically lays the red carpet across rock gardens and chutes for rallying down gnarly descents. For all that flexibility, we may actually be more excited about the sealed Charger damper, which houses the damper oil in a seamless, extruded bladder for an airtight seal. This minimizes the chances of air bubble contamination to provide unparalleled damper consistency, especially during the long, heavy runs the Pike RCT3's huge travel excels on. The rebound circuit maintains a high ride with RockShox's Rapid Recovery technology -- really just a shim stack that keeps the fork on the up-and-up without sacrificing a controlled rebound stroke.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 120 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in - 2017 RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 120 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in - 2017
The 51mm of offset in this RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 120 29in Fork reduces the amount of wheel flop commonly associated with 29er handling at low speeds by reducing the bike's trail, which results in less "dead" space between the steering axis and the hub. The aim is to reduce handling issues so the wagon wheels stay 26er-sharp whether climbing, ripping, or navigating switchbacks and tricky terrain. The Solo Air spring design ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single travel option of just under five inches. That means it surrenders some all-mountain flexibility, but the lower weight and more aggressive power transfer of the Solo Air setup recommend it for cyclists after pure speed that can still tackle trail terrain. The fork's design does come with some adjustability, manifesting as a three-position RCT3 damper. RCT3 lets you choose discreet amounts of lockout for big hits and fast roll-overs, rock gardens and root lattices, or locked-out speed for climbing and sprinting. While riding the fork open, the Rapid Recovery feature indulges the Pike's terrain-gobbling tendencies by keeping recovery short between hits, so you'll always have that cushion, even across successive bumps. The axle is designed according to the Maxle Lite technology, which basically involves alchemy. While we don't understand exactly how they did it, the sorcerers at RockShox took a regular ol' axle and made it both lighter and stiffer. This means it requires fewer watts to move it, and the watts you do send its way are more efficiently transferred to going up. The Power Bulge feature reinforces the lower legs with oversized bushings, helping the front end maintain lines across terrain that pushes the limits of XC.

Not long ago, frame manufacturers were warning us that Boost axle-equipped bikes should only be bought as complete builds, not frames, because of a paucity of Boost components on the market. Those days are behind us, and the RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 120 Boost Fork for 29ers and 27. 5+ wheels ushers in the new era of increased stiffness and tracking that the oversized axles bring to a trail bike.

The 27. 5in RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 130 Boost Fork pairs race-ready speed and smooth travel with a Boost axle width for a stable, confident ride that fights off deflection like a highly caffeinated honey badger. Add to that the Pike's stellar reputation for durability and adjustability, and this fork is ready to tackle almost any trail with abandon. The Solo Air fork ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 130mm travel position. You lose the ability to drop the front end of your bike by a couple of centimeters to make it more aggressive on the climbs, but save about 50 extra grams. Don't be fooled though, the RCT3 can still climb with the best of them with an adjustable Charger damper and will shine like a star on the steepest, most technical descents you can find. That said, the Pike wouldn't be at the front of the pack if it were rigidly un-adjustable. Depending on the terrain you're climbing or dropping in to, the fork's settings can be dialed by the three-position RCT3 switch, letting you choose the amount of lockout for big hits, general trail terrain, or cross-country speed. RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature indulges the RCT3's terrain-gobbling tendencies by keeping recovery between hits short, maintaining a cushioned ride over multiple successive bumps. The Maxle Ultimate axle is an exceptionally easy to install version of RockShox's standard model. It boasts tool-free installation that can be completed with just one hand and stiff, efficient power transfer. The questionably named Power Bulge feature contributes to stiffness with a reinforced lower leg and oversized bushing that don't require an increase in stanchion size. The Pike is finished with a PSI menu imprinted on the side, so you don't have to dig through tech manuals to find the proper pressure levels for your weight and terrain.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 130 Boost Fork - 29/27.5+ RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 130 Boost Fork - 29/27.5+
Matching your trail or all-mountain frame's versatility with a fork that can keep up is the only way to truly see what your bike can do, and RockShox's 29/27. 5+ Pike RCT3 Solo Air 130 Boost Fork blends versatility with the streamlined style the Pike has always been known for. As this is the 130mm version, it leans a little further towards the trail side of things, but with today's trail frames exhibiting XC nimbleness paired with burly, all-mountain capabilities, the lines of distinction are blurred, at best. Now built with Boost compatibility, the Pike RCT3 can also be set up with the high attack angle of 29in wheels or with a dose of added plushness from 27. 5+, and switching your hoops out daily, yearly, or never won't affect its functionality. It's also built with the simplicity and 130mm of bump-devouring cush of RockShox's efficient Solo Air spring. The RCT3 damper spans Open, Pedal, and Lock modes, so it can handle everything from fire roads to steep, punishing climbs to tumultuous, rock-lined descents. RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature is also included here, which keeps the Pike feeling hungry after successive hits and hand-numbing stretches of unrelenting bumps, helping it stay high in its travel so that it can recover quickly to maintain cushion during the unexpected. RockShox paid carefully attention to the chassis design for its prized Pike line, and the Pike RCT3 received reinforced lower legs and oversized bushings, which stiffen it while managing to keep stanchion size the same. Any excess or unnecessary weight was carefully carved out of the chassis to balance weight with stiffness, and RockShox thoughtfully includes a PSI menu printed on the side of the Pike to keep pre-ride adjustments from taking away too much of your time on the trails.

As the industry continues to improve suspension design, big hits are no longer anathema to big wheels, so the 5. 5in travel of RockShox's Pike RCT3 Solo Air 140 Boost Fork for 29in and 27. 5 plus tires isn't just a novelty parlor trick. Anyone who's had the opportunity to try 27. 5 plus tires and Boost front axles know that the fat bike-cush and stiff, line-holding 148mm axle are no joke, either. When all of this tech is housed in RockShox's peerless all-mountain fork, you can expect things as big as your bike's wagon wheels. While the Solo Air model sacrifices the Dual Position Air shock's variable travel, it does still come with some adjustability. This manifests as a three-position RCT3 switch, which lets you choose discreet amounts of lockout for big hits and fast roll-overs, rock gardens and root lattices, or locked-out speed for climbing and sprinting. While riding the fork open, the Rapid Recovery feature indulges the Pike's terrain-gobbling tendencies by keeping recovery short between hits, so you'll always have that cushion, even through successive bumps. The axle is designed according to the Maxle Lite technology, which basically involves alchemy. While we don't understand exactly how they did it, the sorcerers at RockShox took a regular ol' axle and made it both lighter and stiffer. This means it requires fewer watts to move it, and the watts you do send its way are more efficiently transferred to going up. The Power Bulge feature involves a questionable naming convention and a reinforced lower leg and oversized bushing, which further increases stiffness without increasing stanchion size.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Boost Fork - 27.5in - 2017 RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Boost Fork - 27.5in - 2017
The RockShox Pike family of forks has long held a place in the hearts of racers and trail lovers alike looking for race-ready speed and smooth travel to navigate rock gardens, roots, and the occasional nerve-shearing drop along the way. The 27. 5in RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Boost Fork pairs what we can only refer to as the Pike's awesomeness with a Boost axle width for a ride that fights off deflection like an energy drink-fueled honey badger. The Solo Air fork ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 150mm travel position. You lose the ability to drop the front end of your bike by a couple of centimeters to make it more aggressive on the climbs, but save about 50 extra grams in the process for a lighter, simpler mechanism. Don't be fooled though, the RCT3's adjustable Charger damper still cleans climbs and will shine like a star on all but the steepest, most technical descents. That said, the RCT3 wouldn't be at the front of the pack if it were rigidly un-adjustable. Depending on the terrain you're climbing or dropping in to, the fork's settings can be dialed by the three-position RCT3 switch, letting you choose the amount of lockout for big hits, general trail terrain, or cross-country speed. RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature indulges the RCT3's terrain-gobbling tendencies by keeping recovery between hits short, maintaining a cushioned ride over multiple successive bumps. The Maxle Ultimate axle is an exceptionally easy to install version of RockShox's standard model. Claimed to be the easiest-to-operate axle system in the world, Maxle Ultimate boasts tool-free installation that can be completed with just one hand. The Power Bulge feature also contributes to stiffness with a reinforced lower leg and oversized bushing that don't require an increase in stanchion size. The Pike is finished with a PSI menu imprinted on the side, so you don't have to dig through tech manuals to find the proper pressure levels for your ...

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Boost Fork - 29/27.5+ - 2017 RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Boost Fork - 29/27.5+ - 2017
Strong and intelligent makes for an incredibly threatening combination, and it's one that RockShox has executed admirably with its 29/27. 5+ Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Boost Fork. Like a British secret agent with discerning taste in formalwear and cocktails, the Pike blends style and grace with turns of occasional, unapologetic brutishness delivered in the form of six capable inches of travel. Tipping the scales with cross-country lightness and delivering a forward-thinking Boost-compatible design, this Pike RCT3 will work with both the trusty 29in wheels in your garage or the new 27. 5+ you can't wait to take out on the trails. Using Solo Air, this version of the Pike ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 150mm travel position, saving you about 50g of weight and unnecessary complexity. The Charger damper's adjustability still gives you room to spin the pedals without feeling bogged down on a climb, allowing you to choose between Open, Pedal, and Lock modes, but Solo Air truly shows its strength on the steepest pitches and most destructive descents you can convince yourself to steer your bike into. When you're dialing settings on the three-position charger damper, Open will let you enjoy discreet amounts of low-speed compression, while Pedal and Lock are pre-tuned for a plush platform that keeps moving across unyielding trail decor and maintains speed on smooth climbs and fire road transitions. You'll also get the benefit of RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature, which keeps the Pike hungry after successive hits and hand-numbing stretches of repetitive bumps, ensuring it stays high in its travel and recovers quickly to maintain cushion when you pick the wrong line. The Pike's overall design brings us back to our earlier musings about its intelligence, as it features a reinforced lower leg and oversized bushing for stiffness with no corresponding increase in stanchion size. Along the rest of the design, RockShox carefully shape...

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Fork - 26in - 2017 RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Fork - 26in - 2017
If the six-inch fork market is a fruit vendor's cart on the set of a mid-90s action flick, then the Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Fork is the 26-inch leading element of a high speed chase. Ever since it arrived on the scene, the Pike has been blowing up expectations for what an enduro fork can do, and this particular hot rod's six inches of travel and 26-inch wheel size make it ideal for redefining established lines by combining the brute, bottomless force of six-inch travel with the agility of 26-inch wheels in order to rethink what's possible. The Solo Air fork ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 150mm travel position. You lose the ability to drop the front end of your bike by a couple of centimeters to make it more aggressive on the climbs, but for some, the extra weight saved (about 50 grams) and the complexity saved is worth it. While still a comfortable climber, thanks to the Charger damper's adjustability, the Solo Air really shines on the steepest and most technical downhills you can stomach. That's not to suggest the Pike is as inflexible as the anti-cavalry spear-like weapon for which it may very well be named. Its settings can be dialed by the three-position RCT3 charger damper, which lets you choose discreet amounts of low-speed compression in the Open mode. It also gives you two other settings, Pedal and Lock, which are pre-tuned for a plush platform that maintains efficiency across moderate trail furniture and a lockout for non-techy climbs and fast fire road transitions. RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature indulges the Pike's terrain-gobbling tendencies by keeping recovery between hits short, so you'll always have that cushion, even during multiple successive bumps. While we're of a divided opinion about the name, Power Bulge is code for a reinforced lower leg and oversized bushing, which further increases stiffness without increasing stanchion size.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Fork - 27.5in - 2017 RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Fork - 27.5in - 2017
Six-inch travel bikes have become the golden standard in enduro racing, tempering race-worthy speed with enough travel to tackle whatever rock gardens, gutters, and drops a given mountain might have in store. Almost as soon as it hit the market, the RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Fork proved that it was the standard fork for the golden standard enduro bike, the level against which all other six-inch forks would be measured. While other manufacturers scramble to re-engineer their entire lines, the Pike continues to focus on scrambling across trail furniture and finish lines. The Solo Air fork ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 150mm travel position. You lose the ability to drop the front end of your bike by a couple of centimeters to make it more aggressive on the climbs, but for some, the extra weight saved (about 50 grams) and the complexity saved is worth it. While still a comfortable climber, thanks to the Charger damper's adjustability, the Solo Air really shines on the steepest and most technical downhills you can stomach. Of course, the Pike wouldn't be in the pole position of the six-inch travel game if it were rigidly un-adjustable. Depending on the terrain you're climbing up or dropping in to, the fork's settings can be dialed by the three-position RCT3 switch, which lets you choose discreet amounts of lockout for bigger hits, trail terrain, or cross-country speed.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 160 Boost Fork - 27.5in - 2017 RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 160 Boost Fork - 27.5in - 2017
It seems like just yesterday that RockShox's Pike was the hottest thing going in the off-road world. These days, Boost axles are the rage, and the 27. 5in Pike RCT3 Solo Air Boost Fork combines those two pieces of trail weaponry for an all-mountain axe stiff enough to chop through any obstacles an enduro course may drop in your path. Since the Pike's reinforced Power Bulge bushings are already pushing the fork into nuclear-grade anti-deflection territory, pairing it with a 110mm Boost axle only makes sense. The Solo Air fork ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 150mm travel position. You lose the ability to drop the front end of your bike by a couple of centimeters to make it more aggressive on the climbs, but for some, the extra weight saved (about 50 grams) and the complexity saved is worth it.

With generous travel and the addition of plus-size clearance, RockShox's 29/27. 5+ Pike RCT3 Solo Air 160 Boost Fork will immediately become the ultimate piece of all-mountain weaponry in any enduro arsenal. Since the Pike's reinforced Power Bulge bushings are already pushing the fork into nuclear-grade anti-deflection territory, pairing it with a stiffer Boost axle adds even more "cat" to its "cat-on-carpet" tracking. The option to run 27. 5+ tires further increases the fork's capabilities with better traction while locked out on slick, rooty climbs and more plushness while mashing through crunchy stuff that -- in hindsight -- you probably should've tried to pick a more diplomatic line through. The Solo Air fork ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 150mm travel position. You lose the ability to drop the front end of your bike by a couple of centimeters to make it more aggressive on the climbs, but for some, the extra weight saved (about 50 grams) and the complexity saved is worth it.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 160 Fork - 27.5in - 2017 RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 160 Fork - 27.5in - 2017
There's a reason why the top manufacturers continue to optimize their 27. 5in enduro racing frames' geometries for RockShox's Pike RCT3 Solo Air 160 Fork. And that's because, as far as we're concerned, RockShox has optimized the trade-off between all-mountain trail riding and climbing and the big-hit, big-line requirements of a modern enduro race sled. Between details like the stiff interface between the Power Bulge bushings and the Maxle Ultimate axle to the customizable properties of the damper and air spring, the Pike RCT3 continues to set the bar when it comes to holding lines on descents and holding gaps on climbs. The Solo Air fork ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 150mm travel position. You lose the ability to drop the front end of your bike by a couple of centimeters to make it more aggressive on the climbs, but for some, the extra weight saved (about 50 grams) and the complexity saved is worth it.

RockShox RS-1 120mm 29in Fork with X-Loc Remote RockShox RS-1 120mm 29in Fork with X-Loc Remote
We're guilty of using the "turning the suspension world upside down" line more than once in discussion of RockShox's revolutionary new RS-1 fork platform. Why' Because the new XC/trail-focused fork is just that: an inverted, motorcycle-style fork chassis that utilizes cutting edge technology to create the ultimate suspension experience, and the RockShox RS-1 120mm 29in Fork with X-Loc Remote you see here is the longest-travel version currently available. RockShox didn't follow any rules when designing the RS-1, and the result is a product for the consummate 29er devotee. As mentioned, it's an inverted chassis, in which the tapered steerer tube and crown are a single piece of carbon, which is then bonded to carbon legs. Housed within are the new remote-lockout Accelerator cartridge damper and Solo air-spring. Moving down from the carbon crown and legs, the Fast-Black coated stanchions are 32mm wide. Because of the inverted nature of the fork, the stanchions slide effortlessly -- the oil, being above the bushings, provides constant lubrication. Although the carbon fork is stiff and durable, RockShox wanted to ensure that the robustness extended through to the steering and that flex would not be an issue when railing a banked turn. To that end, working with SRAM, it created a hollow 27mm Torque Tube axle that works in conjunction with a standard 15mm thru-axle, creating a new, 110mm axle spacing. The Torque Tube spans the distance between the dropout faces with no endcaps, meaning that once the Maxle is tightened, the serrated ends "grip" the dropouts. This effectively makes the axle, and thereby the wheel, a structural part of the fork. This system was given the name "Predictive Steering" and it keeps the stanchion tubes locked in place. This move makes them torsionally immovable so that you won't need to worry about flex. SRAM (RockShox's parent company) has not licensed the Predictive Steering technology. SRAM and DT Swiss are currently the only companies makin...

RockShox SID RLC Solo Air 100 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in - 2017 RockShox SID RLC Solo Air 100 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in - 2017
Those of us who appreciate the beauty of a streamlined, lightweight design in search of cross-country zen will naturally be drawn to componentry like the RockShox SID RLC Solo Air 100 (51mm Offset) 29in Fork. Deftly balancing efficient stiffness and lightweight speed, this fork urges you to push the boundaries of the course.This particular version of the SID RLC adds a hint of rake to decrease the bike's trail and increase confidence through low-speed finesse sections of trail. It also reduces "dead" space between the hub and the steering axis, which counters the squiggly, low-speed steering issues that often accompany the longer trails produced by taller wheels and slack geometries. Handling stays razor sharp at all speeds, whether climbing, descending, or deftly navigating tricky terrain.The SID RLC boasts a bit of a redesign over its predecessors, with a reshaped chassis focused on gram-saving efficiency. RockShox keeps the specifics of the redesign under wraps, but claims it adds rigidity across the chassis while reducing weight, and the straight-wall aluminum stanchions and magnesium lowers each do their part to add lightness and durability.Within the suspension, a whole host of RockShox's proprietary technologies work with the SID RLC's 100mm of travel, including its Charger Damper which lends the fork its plush, smooth response as you take it over rock-encrusted singletrack. The aptly named Rapid Recovery design works with the fork's Dig Valve to improve the SID RLC's ability to rebound after successive hits on root-laced climbs and rutted out trail, and the option to add RockShox's Bottomless Tokens to the fork's interior gives you further license to fine-tune the ramp-up and limit your likelihood of bottoming-out.Finally, the SID RLC's air spring itself, Solo Air, continues to be designed for ease-of-use.

RockShox SID XX Solo Air 100 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in - 2017 RockShox SID XX Solo Air 100 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in - 2017
The RockShox SID XX Solo Air 100 (51mm Offset) 29in Fork trades out it's top-tier World Cup cousin's single-piece carbon steerer and crown for a more price-conscious yet admirably functional alloy steerer and crown, while keeping the Power Bulge bushing reinforcement for stiff, responsive handling. This particular model adds a bit of rake, which decreases the bike's trail to make low-speed finesse sections more manageable. The result is less "dead" space between the steering axis and the hub, which offsets the floppy, low-speed steering issues that arise from the longer trails produced by today's taller wheels and slack geometries. Handling stays 26er-sharp at all speeds, whether climbing, shredding, or cleaning switchbacks and tricky terrain. Despite the change in materials, the SID XX includes the same top-end, race-ready Motion Control DNA damping system found in the World Cup model. Fighting off gravity and wallow is in this system's DNA, and it uses external rebound and incorporates separate circuits for low- and high-speed compression. The damping is remotely adjustable with the included XLoc remote, so you can dial it for high-riding sensitivity over consecutive bumps or larger impacts to maintain speed across flats and descents and protect the gap you worked so hard to open up on the previous climb. The Solo Air spring is also easy to tune with a single Schrader valve, which adjusts both the negative and positive chambers at the same time, and RockShox's Bottomless Tokens, which alter the chamber's effective volume to dial in the compression curve and meet individual ramp-up preferences. Pairing all this with a Rapid Recovery valve that rebounds quickly after full impacts to prep for the next hit means you'll stay in control across root-latticed climbs and rocky descents.

Except for its more expensive stablemate's one-piece carbon crown and steerer, the RockShox SID XX Solo Air 120 Fork for 27. 5in wheels is every bit the trail missile as the World Cup version. Though this model's substitution of an alloy crown and steerer makes for a slightly heavier overall fork, the SID XX still boasts a claimed weight of just 1,630g, putting it well into the lightweight fork category. The material differences also mean the World Cup model is a bit stiffer through the steerer, but the SID XX features the same built-up Power Bulge bushings at the dropouts to boost stiffness where it really matters and increase line-sticking confidence across techy sections of terrain. The SID XX also includes the same top-end, race-ready Motion Control DNA damping system found in the World Cup model.
