Lyrik Select 27.5in Boost Fork
We think enduro riding is a good metaphor for life. There are ups, and downs, but with the right preparation, the downs are a lot more fun. While in life, that may mean surrounding yourself with a good group of friends, on the trail, the best way to get the most out of the ride is with a plush fork that's eager to handle it all, like the RockShox Lyrik Select 27.5in Boost Fork. The Lyrik Select combines the DebonAir Spring for coil-like feel through the travel, and the trusted Charger RC damper for low-speed compression adjust, so you can fine-tune your ride for total comfort when you tackle a roller coaster of a trail ahead.
If you're familiar with RockShox's lineup in years past, you'll probably notice that they've shifted from a series of letters designating where each fork is situated, to the new designations of "Select" and "Ultimate." The Select lands just behind the Ultimate, using the tried-and-trusted Charger RC damper, which packs in low-speed compression adjust for fine-tuning your fork to your preferred feel. While it maintains the same damper as we've seen in previous Lyrik models, new Maxima Plush damping fluid is added to the scene. The new fluid is fine tuned to reduce friction, and silence damper noise for a sleek feel that stays smooth as you push through the travel. Complimenting the new fluid, a new, more durable grease is employed in the air chamber, offering the same slickness of grease used in previous generations, but durability that blows it out of the water.
The Lyrik Select delivers precise tracking with its stout 35-millimeter stanchions preventing torsional deflection when you're smashing across boulders and roots at high speeds. Beefed up over its Pike sibling with thicker stanchion walls, the Lyrik is RockShox's premiere fork for aggressive styles of all-mountain riding and enduro racing. This pairs up with the DebonAir spring that's borrowed from RockShox Deluxe and Super Deluxe rear shocks to increase negative air spring volume in the fork, lending higher levels of suppleness off-the-top. This translates to a ride that's more sensitive to small bumps and imperfections in the trail. The DebonAir spring also increases its mid-stroke support to prevent you from blowing through the excess travel.
