    Details

    Queen of the mountains.

    The 27.5in RockShox Pike RCT3 Dual Position Air 160 Boost Fork inherits the star-studded heritage of a long line of well-loved Pikes. This legendary lady of the trails is often found lavished with accolades on the steps of world cup podiums and driving hair-raising runs documented with POV cameras all over the world. Whatever your application, though, the Pike RCT3 Dual Position smooths out the trail to clean the gnarliest lines and drive lightning fast rides.

    With 160mm of travel and 35mm stanchions, this particular brute packs the kind of front-end force and high travel across consecutive small bumps recommended for the present trend of huge enduro sleds, effectively turning mountains to mole hills and mole hills to something more akin to hardpack.

    The burly stanchions are backed-up by the fork's tapered steerer tube to fight deflection under hard braking, aggressive cornering, and emergency maneuvers through lines that look a little more frightening halfway through than they did at the top. The lowers are also reinforced courtesy of RockShox's Power Bulge design, which increases the amount of room for oversized bushings for a stiffer wheel-to-fork interface. RockShox finishes the fork off with a beefy 15x110mm Boost Maxle Ultimate thru-axle for impeccable tracking and handling so you can throw down with the toughest competition.

    The Dual Position air spring gives you the option of tweaking travel by 30mm. You can run a shorter stroke for improved handling while taking advantage of the fork's low weight on climbs while extending the travel to its full, glorious six inches practically lays the red carpet across rock gardens and chutes.

    For all that flexibility, we may actually be more excited about the sealed Charger damper, which houses the damper oil in a seamless, extruded bladder for an airtight seal. This minimizes the chances of air bubble contamination to provide unparalleled consistency, especially during the long, heavy runs the Pike RCT3's huge travel excels on. The fork is finished with a rebound circuit that maintains a high ride with RockShox's Rapid Recovery technology — really just a shim stack that keeps the fork on the up-and-up without sacrificing a controlled rebound stroke.
