The RockShox Pike is back! Like the long awaited Jay-Z album, the Pike was well worth the wait. After taking a few years off, the Pike has come back to rejoin the RockShox lineup, as the ultimate trail fork. The Pike will turn your bumpy uncomfortable trail into a silky smooth ride. Be warned, the RockShox Pike creates such a comfortable ride that you’ll begin to notice the sweet scent of flowers, chirping birds, and beautiful butterflies fluttering about. It’s totally normal. The RCT3 damper allows you to adjust the rebound and has a three position compression (open/pedal/lock.) Magnesium lowers make for a super light chassis without sacrificing rigidity. Power Bulges reinforce the lower leg to allow for an oversized bushing, which increases the stiffness and maximizes each pedal stroke.

Comments about Rockshox Pike RCT3 26" Fork:
This is by far the absolute best suspension fork I've ridden in 25 years of mountain biking. I've got the 160mm dual position air version and it is so incredibly smooth, plush and controlled, I can't believe it.
This fork has nearly the small bump sensitivity of a well tuned and broken in 100mm fork but it is also right at home with medium to large hits, chunky sections, and g-outs. The spring rate is very linear with just the right amount of progression at the end of the stroke so you use full travel but never feel it bottom out. The dual position air system works perfectly and has never let me down.
The damper is just incredible, both the rebound and compression dampers are super smooth and predictable giving you total control and confidence in all situations. They are also very adjustable with a broad range adjustment.
The fork feels very stiff and planted, the new Maxle Lite is easy to use and spot-on. My fork was stiction free and buttery smooth right out of the box. I now have around 500 miles of steep and technical Northern Colorado all-mountain riding on it and it feels better than ever.
My only real gripe is that it's pretty pricey but I have never regretted my purchase. This fork transformed my AM rig and I don't want to stop riding it. The performance of this fork makes me want to go faster and push harder on every trail I ride. I hope to enjoy it for years to come.
