ROCK SHOX suspension fork 26 "Bluto RCT3 SA Fatbike 120 mm QR15 tapered black 2017
With the Bluto RL, Rock Shox launched the first Fatbike fork on the market. To meet the increased torsional forces encountered by the fat wheels of the Fatbikes, the fork has been specifically designed for this. The reinforced fork crown and the axle system create the necessary stiffness to control the bike precisely on the trails. The proven Solo Air technology is also used. The air spring allows the spring rate to be adjusted via a positive and negative chamber. With the help of the Bottemless Token technology, an individual adjustment of the spring characteristic is also possible. The fork can be matched perfectly to the driver's weight, and the progression can be adapted to personal preferences. Now with Rock Shox's proven RCT3 system.
Optimized and proven damping system for up- and downhills.
The adjustment of the damping has a platform that can be controlled in 3 steps.
* Open, the fork reacts sensitively to any unevenness and thus offers the best traction in downhill runs
* Platform, the fork will not release until larger strokes occur. For short races or routes with fast changing requirements
* Closed, the fork is completely blocked and allows the effective use of force during hard climbs and sprints
The negative and positive air chambers are filled by means of a valve at the same time. What makes setting the personal set-up much easier.
Spacers which can be inserted into the air chamber allow the ferrite characteristic to be influenced, thus achieving a smoother response with a higher end progression.
