RockShox has announced the release of a vastly updated version of the Pike forks.
The original Pike forks were released in 2013, to much critical acclaim from the industry and riders alike. Whilst the new forks retain both the name and core attributes as the originals, the design has been completely re-worked to accommodate modern riding styles.
The new damper design 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 Firm setting on Pike and Lyrik has been re-tuned, and remote options with OneLoc provide on-the-fly access to the Firm mode and are a match with RockShox Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Super Deluxe Coil remote rear shocks. Featured on: MY18 Pike, Lyrik.
No longer only reserved to rear shocks, RockShox’s DebonAir air springs complement the trail smoothing performance of many forks in the product range. Whilst remaining smooth in the first 1/3 of travel, DebonAir forks and shocks still provide consistent mid-stroke support. Featured on: MY18 Pike, Lyrik, Revelation, Yari.
A new Charger 2 damper is now compatible with RockShox’s OneLoc remote for on-the-fly compression adjustments, and a match to Deluxe and Super Deluxe rear shocks. The new DebonAir air spring enhances small bump sensitivity and mid-stroke support. Pike’s travel options are up to 160mm for 27.5” and 140mm for 29” with room for tires up to 2.8” on both models.
