The new damper designs provides a wider range of low speed compression adjustment in the Open mode, with a more usable Pedal setting that excels on rolling trails. The fixed setting has also been improved and better tuned to the RockShox shock absorbers. In addition, compatibility with the OneLoc remote control allows the suspension fork to be adjusted while riding. With the new Pike, Rock Shox takes another significant step forward in terms of performance and weight reduction thanks to new casting and damping.
Charger 2 Damper
The evolution of the highly acclaimed Charger damper - the most advanced RockShox technology yet - takes its performance and sophistication to a whole new level. The new damping design allows more extensive adjustment of the low-speed compression stage in open mode and a more effective pedalling mode, which is particularly effective on hilly trails. The Lock-Out mode of the Pike and Lyrik has been revised and the options for OneLoc remote controls allow the fixed mode to be set while riding. Fits perfectly to RockShox Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Super Deluxe coil mufflers with remote control.
Dual Position Air
If you want to go up and run down, you need a suspension fork that can do only one thing really well. But you love murderous climbs, technical descents, winding single tracks and everything in between. That's why you need a beast that’s prepared for all of this. The Dual Position Air changes the travel of your fork by up to 30mm without sacrificing performance. With a simple twist and click, you can switch from diabolical climbs to fast and controlled descents.
Who doesn't want more available wheel travel for successive hits? Thanks to the Rapid Recovery System, the damper returns to its original position more quickly after successive strokes, allowing the wheel to grip the ground more precisely. This more active damping system won’t fail and provides a ride with higher and softer spring hardness. With Rapid Recovery, the rider benefits from greater suspension travel for a smoother and more controlled ride on every shot.
If you don’t adjust your damping correctly, you may as well be riding a foreign bike. But why waste plastic clips or rulers to adjust the suspension again and again? Damping markings: The damping markings are printed directly on the stanchions of the suspension fork and the damper housing for easy and precise adjustment of the perfect suspension. So you can return the plastic clip and ruler to your mother.
Torque Caps strengthen the connection between the hub and the fork dropout by increasing the surface area that connects the two. This creates a stronger and stiffer interface that gives you better feedback and more control. So you can concentrate on the most important connection: The one between your bike and the trail.
