Dylan Berrywrote a review of RockShox Pike RCT3 - 27.5in 160mm MaxleLite15 Solo Air on November 3, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This fork is amazing. So supple in the chop and progressive enough to handle the big hits. Its incredibly smooth (ahem Fox). I had to dial up the rebound a bit out of the box and installed one of the bumpers they provide to make it more progressive (stiffer deeper in the travel) but it has easily met all of my expectations. I'm using it on a DB Mission as an AM weapon and it has handled everything from bike park days to long grinding XC rides. The 3 settings on the damper provide flexibility depending on what you are riding, it really handles everything well. Take the Fox out to pasture and saddle up with the Pike, best decision you will ever make.
