RockShox Pike RCT3 Fork - 26in 160mm Dual Position Air $1,060.00
For every inch of the mountain.
Like the 150mm-travel Revelation, this RockShox for 26-inch wheels has the RCT3 damper. But, instead of cute 32mm stanchions, the Pike flexes wide 35mm guns to back up 160mm of travel. And being a Dual Position Air, it also drops 30mm to suit those who earn their turns.
The Dual Position Air spring adds a little complexity and weight (we're only talking 50g and some change here), but it lets you drop the front end down for an improved riding position and better traction when climbing. The two travel settings are adjusted using a switch on the top of the right crown.
On the other side of the Pike, resides the RCT3 damper. With this, you're not limited to factory low-speed compression settings without playing doctor. Via the shiny dial atop the Charger adjustment knob, you're able to increase low-speed compression to avoid brake dive and g-out, but you're still able to run it wide open. The Charger damper also gives you three instant compression settings from open, trail-tuned, and completely locked out.
The RockShox Pike RCT3 26in 160mm Dual Position Air Fork has a tapered steerer tube, and uses a post mount brake interface. It's available in the color White and with a 15mm Maxle Lite axle.
