ROCKSHOX suspension fork 29" Pike Ultimate Charger 3 RC2 120 mm DebonAir+ BOOST 44 mm offset tapered silver | 2023
BORN OF LEGEND
When mountain bikers are looking for the ultimate trail bike, a certain formula always comes together: powerful, shorter travel, aggressive geometry, light in weight and strong in attitude - the Pike is RockShox's ultimate solution. No fear of wild root fields. Unimpressed by steep climbs. It's an unmatched mid-travel ripper, redesigned to show what today's trail bikes are truly capable of.
A benchmark since 2003, the Pike more than lives up to its reputation: a fork that can handle any trail and any riding style. A fork that enhances your trail experience. Experience the icon. Ride your damn Pike.
BUILT FOR THE NEW SCHOOL TRAIL RIDER
A suspension fork built for the new age of trail riding. A multidimensional fork that weighs little, can do a lot and impresses with stiffness and travel. The Pike is there to take you from summit to summit and trailhead to tailgate drinks - for those days when the lines between trail riding and cross-country trails blur.
Extremely versatile, powerful, light on the scales and strong in attitude - that's the new Pike. No fear of wild root fields. Unimpressed by steep climbs. RockShox has reworked the trail-ready legend with a new 35mm chassis, featuring technology like the new Charger 3 shock with anti-vibration ButterCups. A fork that enhances your trail experience on every ride. Experience the legend.
35 mm chassis
A robust chassis design for optimal stiffness and steering precision.
Ultimate Bushing Package
The "Ultimate Bushing" package maximises bushing overlap, reduces friction and ensures the best possible ride.
Lightweight, machined and anodised crown for a premium look and durability.
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 too. 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 compromises 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 for 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. Apart from a clean look, it also saves some weight on the unsprung mass.
Allows you to individually adjust the air chamber size. This allows you to adjust the spring characteristics of your fork perfectly to your riding style.
An axle standard with 110 mm width and 15 mm thru axle. The 10 mm wider hub body allows for flatter spoke angles and thus 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 that gives you better feedback and more control. This allows you to focus on the most important connection: The one 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 bolt-on fender sold separately.
Pressure Relief Valves
Pressure Relief Valves eliminate unwanted air pressure build-up in the downtube assembly caused by altitude or temperature changes. With the push of a button, the valves restore premium fork feel.
