    Details

    Big travel, no flop.

    With its 51mm of offset, the RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 140 Fork does two things 29ers were long thought incapable of. It turns a big-wheeled front end into an long-travel, all-mountain machine, and decreases the bike's trail, which results in less "dead" space between the steering axis and the hub. The design is an attempt to offset the floppy, low-speed steering issues that arise from the longer trails produced by taller wheels and slack geometries, so handling stays 26er-sharp at all speeds, whether climbing, ripping, or navigating switchbacks and tricky terrain.

    The Solo Air spring design ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single, 140mm travel position. That means it surrenders some all-mountain flexibility, but the lower weight and more aggressive power transfer of the Solo Air setup recommend it for cyclists after pure speed above all else. The fork's design does come with some adjustability, manifesting as a three-position RCT3 damper. RCT3 lets you choose discreet amounts of lockout for big hits and fast roll-overs, rock gardens and root lattices, or locked-out speed for climbing and sprinting. While riding the fork open, the Rapid Recovery feature indulges the Pike's terrain-gobbling tendencies by keeping recovery short between hits, so you'll always have that cushion, even across successive bumps.

    The axle is designed according to the Maxle Lite technology, which basically involves alchemy. While we don't understand exactly how they did it, the sorcerers at RockShox took a regular ol' axle and made it both lighter and stiffer. This means it requires fewer watts to move it, and the watts you do send its way are more efficiently transferred to going up. The Power Bulge feature reduces the issues of flex commonly associated with wagon wheels by reinforcing the lower leg and adding oversized bushings.
