Pike RCT3 29 Charger DebonAir 120 Boost Fork by RockShox
Back in 2013, the RockShox Pike asserted its dominance by offering aggressive trail riders the best of stiff-tracking support and fine-tunable settings with its 35-millimeter chassis paired with an excellent Charger damper. It was so good, RockShox left it virtually unchanged over the past four seasons, simply adding different sizes to accommodate new standards in tire and wheel sizes. However, as you're probably aware, the industry is rapidly evolving, threatening to leave the original Pike behind if RockShox didn't update its already excellent riding characteristics. Seeing the need to update the original, RockShox revamped the Pike RCT3 DebonAir 120 Boost 27. 5in Fork to assert its dominance on the market for riders desiring increased tuning options and 2. 8-inch tire compatibility (also clears 27. 5 x 3. 0-inch tires) without sacrificing its stiff, supportive feel.

Since it's available in Boost spacing only, you'll not only reap the benefits of increased front wheel stiffness, but also find this fork works with the high volume tires up to 2. 8-inches wide.

You'll be pleasantly surprised to find its new Charger 2 damper unit retains the Open, Pedal, and Firm settings of the previous model, but with a wider range of low-speed compression adjust in Open mode, as well as re-tuned damping in Pedal mode for better support on long climbs and smooth-buffed trails. Firm mode gets an update as well, allowing ...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
