No comeback for a comeback has never been so impressive.
A resurrection, a rebirth.
After she had a few years give yourself a break, the PIKE returns as the ultimate trail fork back into the Rock Shox family. Whether your Trail is a buttery smooth singletrack section or strewn terrain of rocks in the Alps, the PIKE meet any challenge.
With a completely revised Casting and 35 mm thick, asynchronous standpipes as stiff as the lyric and yet as light as a Revelation!
High rigidity and low weight is promising but not all - in addition some revolutionary technologies were implemented.
A special Shimstack inside the fork optimizes the function of many, fast successive blows. She returns quickly back to the Position reached - the ground contact is increased and prevented the notorious undershoot.
A new damping system whose operating principle has proven itself already in motorsport.
What is new is a rubber bladder, which receives oil displaced during compression by the piston and supported with this "charging" the rebound. Furthermore, the occurring during rougher ride mixture of air and damping oil is prevented, thus achieving a more constant damping behavior.
In addition, to reach a separation of damping and lubricating oil, which is the response of the fork to good.
Revised thru axle, yet easier to use, more reliable under extreme conditions.
The tuning of the damping has an adjustable in 3 steps Platform.
* Open, the fork is sensitive to any imperfections and provides as in runs the best traction
* Platform, the fork triggers only when larger shocks occur. For short races or tracks with rapidly changing requirements
* Closed, the fork is completely blocked and allows the effective forces use in punishing climbs and sprints
The negative and positive air chambers are filled only by means of a valve at the same time. What the setting of the personal set-ups much easier.
