In harmony.

Make the trail sing with the new RockShox Lyrik RCT3 Dual Position Air 160 Boost Fork - 29/27.5 Plus. Made to pair with either 29er or 27.5+ wheels, the updated Lyrik maintains the trail shredding qualities we loved about its predecessor and adds tapered legs, an elongated brace, and a Boost axle width for a lighter, stiffer, more controllable ride.

Though the two forks share a general pedigree, there are some key differences between the Pike and the updated Lyrik. They lie mostly 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. 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 favorite to begin with, including the RCT3 Charger damper and Fast Black coating, and Dual Positions 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 lockout 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.

  • A big travel fork for hard-charging enduro adventures
  • Wide stanchions and axle make for stiff control
  • Tapered legs reduce weight
  • Air spring is adjustable with volume tokens
  • Adjustable damper accommodates varied terrain
