Channel aggression into captivating control.
When pure speed and unadulterated aggression are on the menu for technical trail rides and enduro races, tap into the unrelenting stiffness and plush support of the RockShox Pike RCT3 DebonAir 160 Boost 27.5in Fork. Packing robust 35-millimeter stanchions and a fine-tunable Charger 2 damper, the Pike RCT3 is ready to dominate the most rugged stretches of trail and biggest hits you can throw its way. For the most aggressive of riders, RockShox offers bottomless tokens to resist bottom-outs and harshness on bigger hits and steep descents.
BOOST axle spacing fortifies the front wheel, making it stiffer and more precise in handling the rough stuff you're sure to throw at this fork. Also, it allows for 2.8-inch tire clearance, giving you the ability to run a wide volume trail or plus-sized tire and reap the benefits of increased traction and small-bump compliance.
The Pike gets a major overhaul for 2018 in the form of a Charger 2 damper. This upgraded damper unit improves the Pike's small-bump sensitivity, meaning you'll find it's better at tracking over small rocks, roots, and terrain inconsistencies. The Charger 2 damper provides a greater range of low-speed compression tuning in Open mode, so you'll be able to fine-tune it to your exact preferences. Furthermore, it retains the 3-position settings you've come to love, switching between Open, Pedal, and Firm with the flick of its 3-position knob.
Another overhaul for 2018, the Pike upgrades its Solo Air spring to DebonAir, which is borrowed from RockShox's Deluxe and Super Deluxe shocks. DebonAir increases the negative air spring volume, giving you a plusher feel off-the-top, as well as increasing mid-stroke support. Ultimately, this upgrade to DebonAir makes the Pike all the more sensitive to small bumps and terrain inconsistencies while preventing it from blowing through excess travel as you push it on steep descents and rowdy sections of trail.
