Better than before.
Building off the success of the legendary Pike, the 27.5in RockShox Lyrik RCT3 Dual Position Air 160 Boost Fork changes the game by checking in stiffer, stronger, and more hair-raising than any of the enduro forks that came before it. If you’re the kind of rider who drops first and thinks about their choice second, the burly stanchions, crown, legs, and Boost axle will give you peace of mind; but even more importantly, they’ll keep you solidly on line even when the line is mostly sketchy high-speed rock drops.
The new Lyrik is unsurprisingly plush when the hits get big, but it also eats up small bumps and rugged terrain courtesy of its SKF cartridge seal and Dual Position air spring. This combo also requires less servicing than previous models, and fights off brake dive better than its predecessors, so you can rally hard into corners without worrying about going over the bars if you need to scrub speed. The air spring can be tweaked to fit your day (or segment), and the RCT3 Charger damper also lets you play with tons of different settings so you can tune your ride just the way you like it.
