Though the Pike was originally 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 travel for those who live for steep singletrack and gnarly, rock-infested trails. Don't just take our word for it, you'll find this same fork comes spec'd on many top-flight all-mountain and enduro machines, thanks to its lightweight feel, excellent small-bump compliance, and ability to resist brake dive on high speed descents. The Pike RCT3 Solo Air features a low-speed compression dial atop the Charger adjustment knob to prevent brake dive and g-outs on descents. The ingenious Charger damper lets you ride the fork fully open for the best in bump compliance, firmed up a bit in its pedal setting, and fully locked out to maximize efficiency on steep ascents. Its extruded bladder design is not only highly robust for long-lasting use, but also rides very high in the stroke where the fork is softest. Additionally, there's a rebound adjustment at 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 lightweight Maxle Lite 15mm thru-axle for ample stiffness without sacrificing convenience when you're taking off the front wheel.
