ROCK SHOX Suspension fork 27,5 "+ | 29" PIKE RCT3 SA 160 mm Boost tapered black 2016
No comeback, because a comeback was never so impressive. A resurrection, a new birth. After spending a couple of years relaxing, the PIKE returns to the Rock Shox family as the ultimate trail harness. Whether your trail is a buttery singletrack section or a rocky terrain in the Alps, the PIKE is up to every challenge.
With a completely reworked casting and 35 mm thick, asynchronous standpipes as stiff as the lyric and yet as light as a revelation! High stiffness and low weight are promising, but not everything - in addition some revolutionary technologies have been implemented.
Rapid Recovery A special shimstack inside the fork optimizes the function with many fast successive strokes. It returns faster to the starting position - the ground contact is increased and the notorious baggage is stopped.
Charger Damper A new damping system, the principle of which has already proved itself in motorsport. New is a rubber bubble, which absorbs the oil displaced by the piston and supports the rebound with this "supercharging". Furthermore, the mixture of air and damping oil occurring during rough travel is prevented and thus a more constant damping behavior is achieved. In addition, a separation of damping and lubricating oil is achieved, which is good for the response of the fork.
Maxle Ultimate Revised anchors, even easier to handle, even more reliable under extreme loads.
Boost Standard Here you place on 110mm instead of 100mm wide and special boost hubs with the flanges further outwards and due to the resulting spoke angle much more stable impellers are created. Particularly with 29 "wheels, the hubs have a thicker axle n with a larger clamping surface at the fork, resulting in an enormously stiff connection between fork and impeller. 27.5 "+ or B + These forks and frames are particularly wide and offer space for 27.5 "wheels with up to 3" width tires. The advantage with such wide tires lies in their improved roll-over behavior, extreme grip, low pressure, low risk of incidents and significantly more comfort.
RCT3 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 major 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 ascents and sprints
SoloAir 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.
Bottomless tokens Spacers that can be inserted into the air chamber allow the ferrite characteristic to be influenced, thus achieving a smoother response with a higher end progression.
