RS-1 RL Solo Air 130 Fork w/ Remote - 27.5in - 2018 by RockShox
The suspension gurus at RockShox sought to push the limits of XC fork design with the RS-1 RL Solo Air 130 27. 5in Fork w/Remote. This innovative fork turns a traditional fork upside down with inverted stanchions that improve fore/aft stiffness while remaining properly lubricated throughout their lifetime. When RockShox first introduced the RS-1, it was purely intended for competitive XC use, although many non-competitive riders were running it on their lightweight XC bikes just for fun. However, these same riders often ran higher pressures to prevent blowing through excess travel due to its linear curve, making the RS-1 feel firmer over small bumps and trail imperfections. Realizing these same riders desired the RS-1's lightweight efficiency and fore/aft stiffness, but with greater bump compliance and traction while running higher pressures, the RS-1 RL improves upon the original RS-1 by adding a more sensitive Charger 2 damper. By replacing the previous version's Accelerator damper with a Charger 2 unit, the RS-1 RL becomes all the more trail-savvy--without the unrelenting firmness of a race-ready tune you'd expect from a competitive XC fork. This particular version gives you 130-millimeters of bump-smoothing travel, which is a bit more than many XC-style forks on the market. Ultimately, this makes it a better choice for rougher terrain and technical XC courses where bigger rocks and trail obstacles are a bit too much for shorter-travel forks. Besides its Charger 2 damper unit overhaul, the RS-1 RL features a OneLoc remote that mounts to your handlebars for maintaining efficiency on uphill climbs and out-of-saddle sprints. This remote is compatible with RockShox Deluxe rear shocks, making it a great choice for XC riders seeking to lock out the front and rear simultaneously. Please note, the RS-1 RL is only compatible with SRAM's Predictive Steering hub with torque tube (sold separately), which bolsters extra stiffness over the front wheel to compensate for the...

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.
