Although the Pike was once initially incarnated as a reinforced cross-country fork, the completely redesigned RockShox Pike RCT 3 27. 5 160mm MaxleLite15 Solo Air offers a more robust Charger damper, beefier 35mm stanchions, and 160mm of plush Shuttle for many who are living for steep singletrack and gnarly, rock-infested trails. Do not just take our word for it, you’ll be able to to find this same fork comes spec’d on many most sensible-flight all-mountain and enduro machines, way to its lightweight feel, superb small-bump compliance, and talent to withstand brake dive on high speed descents. The Pike RCT3 Solo Air includes a low-speed compression dial atop the Charger adjustment knob to forestall brake dive and g-outs on descents. The ingenious Charger damper means that you can ride the fork fully open for the most productive in bump compliance, firmed up somewhat in its pedal setting, and entirely locked out to maximise efficiency on steep ascents. Its extruded bladder design isn’t just highly robust for long-lasting use, but additionally rides very high within the stroke where the fork is softest. Moreover, there is a rebound adjustment on the bottom with Rapid Recovery that aids in shock recovery between successive hits for a smoother ride. Note that the Pike RCT3 Solo Air comes with a light-weight Maxle Lite 15mm thru-axle for ample stiffness without sacrificing convenience when you find yourself taking off the front wheel.
