RockShox Pike RCT3 DebonAir 140 Boost Fork - 27.5in - 2018 $875.00
Bred for BOOSTING.
Appealing to aggressive riders and enduro racers, the RockShox Pike RCT3 DebonAir 140 Boost 27.5in Fork is a worthy upgrade to your all-mountain rig or enduro race bike with its robust 35-millimeter stanchions and fine-tunable Charger 2 damper. The Pike RCT3 gobbles up the gnarliest rock gardens and smooths out bigger hits with unwavering support inspiring confidence to push yourself and your bike to the absolute limit. For the most aggressive of riders, RockShox offers bottomless tokens to resist bottom-outs and harshness on bigger hits and steep descents.
BOOST axle spacing fortifies the front wheel, making it stiffer and more precise in handling the rough stuff you're bound to throw at this fork. This wider spacing allows you to run higher volume and plus-sized tires up to 2.8-inches, so you can reap the benefits of increased traction and bump compliance across loose, rocky terrain.
The Pike gets a major overhaul for 2018 in the form of a Charger 2 damper. This upgraded damper unit improves the Pike's small-bump sensitivity, meaning you'll find it's better at tracking over small rocks, roots, and terrain inconsistencies. The Charger 2 damper provides a greater range of low-speed compression tuning in Open mode, so you'll be able to fine-tune it to your exact preferences. Furthermore, it retains the 3-position settings you've come to love, switching between Open, Pedal, and Firm with the flick of its 3-position knob.
Another overhaul for 2018, the Pike upgrades its Solo Air spring to DebonAir, which is borrowed from RockShox's Deluxe and Super Deluxe shocks. DebonAir increases the negative air spring volume, giving you a plusher feel off-the-top, as well as increasing mid-stroke support. Ultimately, this upgrade to DebonAir makes the Pike all the more sensitive to small bumps and terrain inconsistencies while preventing it from blowing through excess travel as you push it on steep descents and rowdy sections of trail.
