RockShox Pike just keeps getting better! With the addition of Boost spacing the Pike retains its crown as the ultimate trail fork. Stretching the stance of these forks out to 110mm allows stronger, lighter, and more horizontally stiff wheels to be used in the new breed of 27.5" and bigger bikes. Further, you are able to stuff a wider sized tire/rim combo into these forks allowing you to run the latest in ultra-wide and grippy tires. The Pike is excellent for single-track or rock infested goat trail up in the Alps. Either way, the Pike is sure to perform well!
The latest edition of the Pike features up to 160mm of travel from the 35mm diameter upper legs, and a tapered steerer with a 15mm thru-axle. The seals have been designed to lessen breakaway friction, utilizing a single lip seal while slotted bushings permit oil to circulate to keep things lubricated. The Pike also highlights the new Charger Damper system, which is also seen on the Vivid Air R2C downhill shock, assuring no compromise in bump performance when your ride turns down the hill. The RCT3 damper features adjustable low speed compression, pedal, open, and lockout so you are ready for whatever terrain comes your way. The new sealed cartridge utilizes an extruded bladder filled with 3wt oil which expands to contain oil displaced by the fork as it moves through the travel. The Maxle Lite is a brilliant Boost 110mm x 15mm thru axle system that provides maximum stiffness, while keeping it lightweight and it requires no tools for removal. The Power Bulge feature reinforces the lower leg to allow for an oversized bushing, enhancing stiffness and durability. Last but not least, the Pike RCT3 attributes RockShox's Rapid Recovery technology allowing the shocks to recover quicker between consecutive bumps, making the wheel track the ground with greater precision. If the Pike RCT3 Boost doesn't make for a smoother, more manageable ride, we don't what will.
My SB6 originally came with Fox 36 Performance series. I swapped it with Pike 130/160mm dual travel from the get go. The 130mm setting helps me during steep climbs and the dial it up to 160 on the descent. The Fox Performance series didn't have the low speed compression, this one. I put one token inside for a more plush feel early on the travel.
