RockShox PIKE RCT3

Having entered the scene as one of the lightest forks of its kind at just 1,910 g (29″), the new RockShox PIKE RCT3 delivers a mind-blowing performance. Thanks to the presence of the new DebonAir chamber and reworked Charger 2 damper, this iteration of the fork is more responsive than ever, with masses of comfort and traction. It’s not only beginners who will love the intuitive and simple setup process – with broad rebound and compression settings, there’s a dialled-in position for riders at both the lighter and heavier ends of the weight and aggression spectrum. The RCT3 Charger 2 damper also has a re-tuned Pedal mode that’s far more effective on flow trails. Now irrefutably THE benchmark for gnarly trail riders, the RockShox PIKE RCT3 represents stiff competition for the rest of the market.

Weight: 1.91 kg (29″, Boost, 140 mm, 51 mm offset) | Price: € 970 – 1100
