ROCK SHOX fork 26 "Bluto RCT3 SA Fatbike 120mm QR15 tapered black 2016
By Bluto RL Rock Shox launched the first Fatbike fork on the market. To the increased torsional forces to be through the thick wheels of Fatbikes occur justice, the fork has been developed it specifically towards. The reinforced fork crown and the axle system produce the necessary rigidity to the bike on the trails to precisely control. Furthermore, the proven Solo Air technology finds use. The air spring allows for adjusting the spring rate on a positive and negative chamber.

The positive and negative air chambers are filled only by means of a valve at the same time. What the setting of the personal set-ups much easier.
Of usable in the air chamber spacer influencing the Ferderkennlinie is possible, thus achieving a smoother response with a higher Endprogression.
