RockShox have long dominated the international racing scene with their SID World Cup model and this trend looks set to continue. By deliberately forfeiting the 120 mm model, RockShox have focused exclusively on the 100 mm standard, choosing to optimize the new casting and revise the internals. They’ve now scrubbed off a tidy 100 g when compared to its precursor, and significantly improved the spring rate on the trail: firm and supportive, the fork uses its travel with unrivalled efficiency, offering the ultimate support in all situations. A key player in the PIKE’s success story, the presence of the Charger cartridge definitely plays to the strengths of the newest SID. RockShox have also astutely adopted the Maxle thru-axle and torque cap compatibility, duly elevating the SID into pole position for ambitious XC pilots.
