Rock on.

The RockShox Pike family of forks has long held a place in the hearts of racers and trail lovers alike looking for race-ready speed and smooth travel to navigate rock gardens, roots, and the occasional nerve-shearing drop along the way. The 27.5in RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Boost Fork pairs what we can only refer to as the Pike's awesomeness with a Boost axle width for a ride that fights off deflection like an energy drink-fueled honey badger.

The Solo Air fork ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 150mm travel position. You lose the ability to drop the front end of your bike by a couple of centimeters to make it more aggressive on the climbs, but save about 50 extra grams in the process for a lighter, simpler mechanism. Don't be fooled though, the RCT3's adjustable Charger damper still cleans climbs and will shine like a star on all but the steepest, most technical descents.

That said, the RCT3 wouldn't be at the front of the pack if it were rigidly un-adjustable. Depending on the terrain you're climbing or dropping in to, the fork's settings can be dialed by the three-position RCT3 switch, letting you choose the amount of lockout for big hits, general trail terrain, or cross-country speed. RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature indulges the RCT3's terrain-gobbling tendencies by keeping recovery between hits short, maintaining a cushioned ride over multiple successive bumps.

The Maxle Ultimate axle is an exceptionally easy to install version of RockShox's standard model. Claimed to be the easiest-to-operate axle system in the world, Maxle Ultimate boasts tool-free installation that can be completed with just one hand. The Power Bulge feature also contributes to stiffness with a reinforced lower leg and oversized bushing that don't require an increase in stanchion size. The Pike is finished with a PSI menu imprinted on the side, so you don't have to dig through tech manuals to find the proper pressure levels for your weight and terrain.

Light and Durable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got the Pike RCT3 Solo Air because people claim it is easier to maintain than Fox. It is extremely light and appears very durable so far. It took me several rides to get the rebound and compression dialed in though. The three positions (downhill, trail, and lock-out/climb) are great and now that I have it where I like it, I expect that I may be converted from Fox to RockShox.
