ROCK SHOX suspension fork 26 "Bluto RL SA Fatbike 120 mm QR15 OneLoc tapered black 2017
With the Bluto RL, Rock Shox is one of the first Fatbike forks 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.
The damping, in which RL has a factory-set triggering threshold, which only triggers with larger impacts. During the journey it is ensured that the fork does not rock in the cradle. The fork also offers a lockout function, which can be operated via the fork or remote OneLoc remote control.
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.
The OneLoc lever is particularly suitable in conjunction with SRAM levers such as the brake / shift lever or the reverb control. In addition, the long, ergonomic lever ensures a minimum of effort and maximum comfort.
