Rock on.

The RockShox Pike family of forks has long held a place in the hearts of racers and trail lovers alike looking for race-ready speed and smooth travel to navigate rock gardens, roots, and the occasional nerve-shearing drop along the way. The 27.5in RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Boost Fork pairs what we can only refer to as the Pike's awesomeness with a Boost axle width for a ride that fights off deflection like an energy drink-fueled honey badger.

The Solo Air fork ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 150mm travel position. You lose the ability to drop the front end of your bike by a couple of centimeters to make it more aggressive on the climbs, but save about 50 extra grams in the process for a lighter, simpler mechanism. Don't be fooled though, the RCT3's adjustable Charger damper still cleans climbs and will shine like a star on all but the steepest, most technical descents.

That said, the RCT3 wouldn't be at the front of the pack if it were rigidly un-adjustable. Depending on the terrain you're climbing or dropping in to, the fork's settings can be dialed by the three-position RCT3 switch, letting you choose the amount of lockout for big hits, general trail terrain, or cross-country speed. RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature indulges the RCT3's terrain-gobbling tendencies by keeping recovery between hits short, maintaining a cushioned ride over multiple successive bumps.

The Maxle Ultimate axle is an exceptionally easy to install version of RockShox's standard model. Claimed to be the easiest-to-operate axle system in the world, Maxle Ultimate boasts tool-free installation that can be completed with just one hand. The Power Bulge feature also contributes to stiffness with a reinforced lower leg and oversized bushing that don't require an increase in stanchion size. The Pike is finished with a PSI menu imprinted on the side, so you don't have to dig through tech manuals to find the proper pressure levels for your weight and terrain.
