Rock Shox Pike RCT3 Review

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've only had this fork on my ibis Mojo HD3 for a month or so, but so far, it's handled everything I can throw at it. My prior experience is mainly with Fox, and I'll say this: the reviews calling this fork more lively seem spot-on. The best comparison I can make is to skiing, in the sense that Fox's damping feels more like a metal-sandwich big mountain ski, and the Pike feels more reactive like a wood-core ski, without being soft. Also, I always found myself tweaking my settings on my Fox forks, trying to dial in just the right amount of rebound, compression, etc... with the Pike, I just set my air pressure and the recommended rebound, and ride. I don't use the 3-position switch either unless I'm riding on pavement. I like the sag marks and pressure guide on the stanchions and lowers, and the Maxle, while tricky to get set right the first time, is functioning flawlessly. Happy to have a fork that just rides well without needing constant attention.
