Imposing dominance on the mountain.
The RockShox Lyrik RC2 DebonAir 180 Boost 29in Fork boasts 180 millimeters of supportive travel for the most aggressive riders pushing their big-wheeled gravity machine down rowdy downhills, technical enduro courses, and bike parks. The Lyrik RC2 delivers precise tracking with its stout 35-millimeter stanchions preventing torsional deflection when you're smashing across boulders and roots at high speeds.
The Lyrik is RockShox's premiere fork for aggressive styles of all-mountain and enduro, thanks to its 35-millimeter chassis with thicker stanchion walls than what you'd find on a Pike. This particular Lyrik RC2 is revised for 2018 with a DebonAir spring and Charger RC2 damper improving its overall suppleness and traction, as well as giving discerning riders the ability to adjust the low and high-speed compression to their exact needs.
The new Charger RC2 damper gives you heightened adjustability over the RCT3 Charger 2 damper found on standard Lyriks, providing the ability to independently fine-tune the high and low-speed compression settings of the fork. You'll find 20 clicks of low-speed compression tuning, alongside 5 clicks of high-speed compression tuning. Also, there's an external rebound adjust to get everything dialed to your individual needs.
Another new addition, the DebonAir spring is borrowed from RockShox's Deluxe and Super Deluxe rear shocks. This technology increases the negative air spring volume of the fork, lending higher levels of suppleness off-the-top, which in turn makes it all the more sensitive to bumps and small imperfections in terrain. The DebonAir spring also increases its mid-stroke support to prevent you from blowing through excess travel.
Since it's made exclusively for the newest Boost axle standards, the Lyrik now clears tires up to 2.8 inches on your 29er, so you can clear wide trail and smaller plus-sized tires. If you'd like to run this on a 27.5+ bike, you'll be able to comfortably clear most larger 3-inch tires. Additionally, it's compatible with RockShox's Torque Cap for gaining stiffness and precise tracking (Torque Cap is sold separately), plus it works with a OneLoc remote (not included) for a handlebar-activated control at your fingers, which is helpful during enduro racing scenarios.
