ROCKSHOX suspension fork 27.5" ZEB Ultimate Charger 3 RC2 180 mm DebonAir+ BOOST 44 mm offset tapered black | 2023
BRAINS AND MUSCLES
The next evolution of the long-stroke single crown fork is here. A whole new breed of fork designed to tackle the world's toughest enduro trails. The ZEB's stiff yet versatile 38mm chassis and milled optics provide a clear tactical advantage for winning races.
NOTHING ELSE MEASURES UP
For the new generation of long travel mountain bikes that pack a punch.
The ZEB's distinctive design is built for the most demanding enduro trails, hellish speeds, unforgiving rock fields, wild turns, steep gullies and plenty of fun. From Rampage glory to the Enduro World Series title, there's not much the ZEB has left to prove.
WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH...
... THE ZEB PAVES ITS WAY. The new world order of Enduro racing has pushed all boundaries. Never before has it been so important to hold every difficult line. The ZEB's chassis design maximizes bushing overlap, reducing friction and ensuring your fork slides perfectly through the travel. No matter how challenging the terrain, the ZEB gives you the confidence to blaze your trail.
Lots of travel, few excuses: The ZEB Ultimate is a whole new breed of fork designed to tackle the world's toughest enduro trails. The redesigned, stiff 38mm chassis includes the new Charger 3 RC2 shock with vibration-damping ButterCup technology. The most powerful, pro athlete-tested RockShox technologies paired with premium styling. That's ZEB.
38 mm chassis
A robust chassis design for increased stiffness and steering precision.
The DebonAir+ air spring is designed to strike the perfect balance between what you really need: buttery responsiveness, more support throughout the travel, and a fork that stands taller in the travel for more confidence when the going gets really steep.
Charger 3 RC2
The Charger 3 has already proven itself with multiple podium wins in the 2021 season and is ready to wow the masses as well. The Charger 3 features an all-new Internal Floating Piston (IFP) design that provides more consistency throughout the stroke. Independent settings improve control without affecting each other. With High Speed compression, Low Speed compression and revised Low Speed rebound, every click is precise and noticeable. Set your perfect riding experience without thinking too much about it. No compromise and no hesitation. This is Charger 3.
ButterCups filter 20% of high frequency vibrations. This significantly reduces hand and arm fatigue, so you feel fresher longer and have more control.
Maxima Plush Damping Fluid
The best suspension needs the best oil. Maxima Plush is designed to reduce suspension wear, friction and noise.
Very light thru axle which can be mounted and removed with a 6 mm hexagon socket. In addition to a clean look, it also saves some weight on the unsprung mass.
Allows the individual adjustment of the air chamber size. This allows you to perfectly adjust the spring characteristics of your fork to your riding style.
An axle standard with 110 mm width and 15 mm thru axle. The 10 mm wider hub body allows flatter spoke angles and thus allows a stable and stiff wheel.
Bolt-in Torque Caps
Torque Caps strengthen the connection between the hub and the fork dropout by increasing the surface area connecting the two. This creates a stronger and stiffer interface with which you get better feedback and more control. This allows you to focus on the most important connection: That between your bike and the trail. Thanks to screw-in torque cap adapters, nothing stands in the way of using normal hub end caps.
Compatible with the RockShox Premium Short Fender. (RockShox screw-on fender sold separately
Pressure Relief Valves
Pressure Relief Valves eliminate unwanted air pressure build-up in the dip tube unit caused by altitude or temperature changes. With the push of a button, the valves restore premium fork feel.
