DON'T CALL IT A COMEBACK!
A comeback has never been so impressive. After taking a few years off, the PIKE returns to the RockShox family as the ultimate trail suspension fork. Whether your trail is butter-soft single-track or rock-scattered terrain in the Alps, the PIKE is up to any challenge.
No compromises for the lockout: Since the efficiency circuits ("pedal" and "lock") are located directly behind the powerful damping, there is no loss of performance during pedal strokes. Enjoy rapid descents while still having the stability to clean efficiently. Rapid recovery: More control with less energy. The extruded bladder material is incredibly tough, withstands damping changes on long descents and has virtually no offset for perfect response on small impacts.
Optimised for the trail

If you need more strength in your forearms for better control, hit the gym. If you want to make your suspension fork more durable, you can do that with the Power Bulge. Other manufacturers simply increase the stanchion size, adding extra weight. Power Bulge, on the other hand, simply reinforces the fork legs for extra-large guidance. This increases stiffness and ensures maximum riding comfort. Besides, it's Power Bulge.
Who doesn't want more available wheel travel for successive hits? Thanks to the Rapid Recovery System, the damper returns to its original position more quickly after successive strokes, allowing the wheel to grip the ground more precisely. This more active damping system won’t fail and provides a ride with higher and softer spring hardness. With Rapid Recovery, the rider benefits from greater suspension travel for a smoother and more controlled ride on every shot. Solo Air
Solo Air is like a Buddhist monk. The enlightened design allows the positive and negative air chambers of your suspension forks to be filled with air simultaneously via just one car valve. So there is a perfect balance between them, like Yin and Yang. For a comfortable and predictable ride, you can adjust the lightest suspension fork on the market in seconds.
By using the optionally available tokens (volume spacers), the air volume of the fork can be reduced, thus influencing the spring characteristic curve. A smoother response with higher final progression is achieved.
Basic things like axles are often the easiest to overlook. If you ever lay a hand on the Maxle Ultimate, you'll be glad that RockShox has paid serious attention to the fine details of this piece. Only one hand is required for operation and individual, tool-free lever placement.
