Cane Creek Helm 160 Boost Fork - 27.5in Cane Creek Helm 160 Boost Fork - 27.5in
After five years of extensive research and design, Cane Creek is confident their Helm 160 Boost Fork offers discerning riders a stiff-and-smooth alternative to the current smorgasbord of premium forks on the market. 160 millimeters of travel and 35-millimeter stanchions maintain smooth travel and stiff tracking demanded by aggressive riders thrashing their all-mountain and enduro rigs on a regular basis. Instead of employing the twin-tube damper that's drawn acclaim from their Double Barrel Shocks, Cane Creek found that a mono-tube damper is most effective for simplicity of servicing and reliability purposes. The damper employs the same structure used by the industry behemoths, and for good reason, namely for its lightweight build and functional lay-out. Instead of setting itself apart in the damper department, the Helm 160 Boost Fork emphasizes its damper tune, resulting from long hours in the engineering department, plus extensive testing by everyday trail riders and pro-class downhill racers alike. This damper gives you the ability to tune 10 and 20 clicks of high and low-speed compression, with an additional 15 positions of low-speed rebound adjustment. As expected, the Helm 160 Boost Fork is air-sprung, with the Doublair Spring giving riders the ability to re-adjust an indexed rod and static piston assembly. Removing this assembly and adjusting the piston up or down effectively changes how the fork ramps up--all without adding volume spacers like you've come to expect. This gives you the ability to gain the progressive ramp-up desired for taking bigger hits and rallying across rock gardens without messing with volume spacers. Independent positive and negative air chambers require the rider to manually adjust the negative chamber by depressing a valve, which then equalizes both chambers. This gives riders additional tuning options to set different pressures in each chamber, albeit with a bit more complicated set-up than forks with self-equalizing chambers. ...

FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 27.5 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 27.5 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017
2016 saw a massive reworking of FOX Racing Shox's line, and we're happy to see the 2017 forks extending those much loved changes for another year of trail-shredding fun. The 2017 32 Float 27. 5 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork brings 120mm of plush -- but still XC -- travel to the table for smooth navigation and confident control over rough terrain. As with the 2016 version, this fork's steerer, crown, uppers, lowers, and Float Air spring shed weight compared to earlier iterations while at the same time getting an overall increase in stiffness for a sharp, responsive ride. The FIT4 damper's puffed out, 10mm shaft increases oil flow to the base valve, allowing the fork to ride high for quick, controlled recovery during everything from big, square hits to successive, small impacts. The 3-position Fit4 system also takes the reins from the old CTD system, changing the names from the overly-prescriptive categories of Climb, Trail, and Descend to a graduating scale covering Firm, Medium, and Open. While this change may read like an exercise in semantics, it entails a radical realignment of the 34 Float's capabilities that addresses virtually every issue we've had with CTD's damper in the past. FIT4 also migrates the adjustable sub settings from CTD's median Trail mode to the new Open setting. Open encompasses both Descend and Trail in order to take full advantage of the fork's high ride by handling most compression duties. This makes the fork that much more relevant to all-mountain situations, combining better small-bump compliance with more confident tracking through rock gardens and rough terrain. It doesn't wallow and handling stays on point. The Medium setting migrates much deeper into the firm side of compression than the Trail setting did, so it'll suffice in most conditions that don't require use of the big-bottomed Open setting. The Firm setting remains self-explanatory: an XC lock-out for turning on the afterburners when terrain allows. It'll likely see much less use i...

FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork (51mm Rake) - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork (51mm Rake) - 2017
Providing the increased stiffness of a BOOST thru-axle and agile handling of a 51mm offset, the 2017 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 29 3Pos-Adj FIT 4 Boost Fork (51mm Rake) remedies the excess wheel flex and sloppy handling sometimes associated with 29er wagon wheels. The most impressive tweak for 2017 is the addition of a quick-release BOOST thru-axle, which radically improves the stiffness of larger 29-inch wheels. In fact, SRAM claims that upgrading your 29ers' front thru-axle to Boost standards increases its stiffness to a comparable 26 inch bike. Ultimately, this means ultra-precise tracking and unflappable poise when you're dropping into rowdy, rock-strewn terrain. Its 51mm offset gives your 29er the snappy handling usually reserved for smaller bikes. This is achieved by adding a bit of rake (around 5mm over traditional 46mm forks), which decreases the bike's trail and results in less "dead" space between the steering axis and hub. Like the addition of Boost, the 51mm offset alleviates common complaints of 29ers (especially those with relatively slack head angles), namely sloppy low-speed handling. Suddenly, you're big-wheeled brute is supremely agile at cleaning switchbacks and negotiating around trail obstacles. The 32 Float strikes a sweet spot between cross-country efficiency and trail-taming confidence with 120mm of travel. The lightweight Float spring provides excellent small-bump compliance. It can be modified with additional air volume spacers (sold separately), giving riders the ability to customize its progressiveness. Furthermore, the Fit4 damper gives riders the ability to switch between Open, Medium, and Firm settings on-the-fly. When it's fully open, the Fit4 damper gives riders 22 clicks of low-speed compression adjustment for fine-tuning its feel to the terrain at hand.

FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork - 2017
We could wax poetically about FOX Racing Shox's 2017 line of 32 Float Forks, more specifically their optimal balance between cross-country efficiency and plush, trail-taming travel. However, we'd be missing the biggest upgrade for 2017, notably the stiffness-enhancing addition of Boost thru-axle compatibility. As such, the 2017 FOX 32 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork retains its praised features from 2016 (FLOAT air spring and Fit4 damper), but with the accommodation of a quick-release Boost thru-axle. Why is this such a significant overhaul, and what does that mean for your riding' Simply put, Boost widens the standard 15x100mm thru-axle to 15x110mm, radically improving the stiffness of larger 29 inch wheels. In fact, SRAM claims that upgrading your 29ers' front thru-axle to Boost standards increases its stiffness to a comparable 26 inch bike. An impressive claim, to say the least. Ultimately, this means ultra-precise tracking and unflappable poise through the rough stuff. Carried over from 2016, the Float air spring is both lightweight and highly sensitive, with excellent small-bump compliance. Its progressiveness can be adjusted with the addition of air volume spacers (sold separately), giving riders the ability to customize its feel across varying disciplines and terrain types. Further contributing to its customizable feel, the 32 Float's FIT4 damper serves up 3-position adjustability, with the ability to switch between Open, Medium, and Firm settings on-the-fly. When it's fully open, the Fit4 damper gives riders 22 clicks of low-speed compression adjustment for fine-tuning its feel to the terrain at hand. Furthermore, the FIT4 damper is slightly revised for 2017 for improved sensitivity without sacrificing its overall support.

Equipped with a 51mm offset, the 2017 FOX Racing 32 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork (51mm Rake) gives your 29er the snappy handling usually reserved for smaller 26 inch trail bikes. This is achieved by adding a bit of rake (around 5mm over traditional 46mm forks), which decreases the bike's trail and results in less "dead" space between the steering axis and hub. Ultimately, this remedies the sloppy steering and wheel flop associated with relatively slack head angles and larger wheels, especially on steep climbs and technical XC courses. Balancing the needs of cross-country riders and trail enthusiasts, the 32 Float features 120mm of travel for a plush feel across widely varying trails, all without sacrificing speed or feeling unwieldy across tight switchbacks. The Float air spring is lightweight and provides excellent small-bump compliance. Its progressiveness can be adjusted with the addition of air volume spacers (sold separately), giving riders the ability to customize its feel across varying disciplines and terrain types. Carrying over the revised FIT4 damper found on 2016 models, the latest 32 Float offers 3-position adjustability, with the ability to switch between Open, Medium, and Firm settings on-the-fly. When it's fully open, the Fit4 damper gives riders 22 clicks of low-speed compression adjustment for fine-tuning its feel to the terrain at hand. Slightly revised for 2017, the FIT4 damper is tuned for improved sensitivity without sacrificing overall support.

After 2016's massive overhaul of FOX Racing Shox's fork line, the majority of its forks extend those changes into 2017 without any further tinkering with one big exception. The 2017 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float SC 27. 5 100 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork gets an entirely new chassis and returns lean, mean, and ready to shred XC courses. Billed as one of the lightest suspension forks available, this fork features a narrowed crown and the company's all-new Step-Cast lower leg design. Step Cast manifests as small cutouts in the lowers of the fork that open up extra clearance for rotors and spokes while simultaneously allowing the fork's stance to narrow by a whopping 10mm. This means less overall material and lowered weight, which, when paired with the hollowed out stepped lowers, results in claims that this fork clocks in as one of the lightest on the market. Whether you're out for a social spin or revving up on the start line, this featherweight construction paired with a stiff Boost axle makes for precise, responsive handling and flat out fun on almost any trail. The FIT4 damper returns unchanged from last year save a few minor tweaks and additional machining to fit within the new stepped lowers. This includes the puffed out, 10mm shaft, which increases oil flow to the base valve, allowing the fork to ride high for quick, controlled recovery during everything from big, square hits to successive, small impacts.

FOX Racing Shox 32 Float SC 29 100 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float SC 29 100 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017
Designed under the guiding notion that extra weight is the difference between standing atop the podium and being left in the dust, the 2017 Fox 32 Float SC 29 100 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork's innovative design shaves approximately 255g or 15 percent from a similarly spec'd 32 FLOAT Fork. Coined as Step Cast (SC) by FOX due to its stepped lower legs, the new SC Chassis is 10mm narrower than the previous iteration for a ridiculously light fork that maximizes efficiency in cross-country racing scenarios. Its smooth and sensitive ride quality remains unchanged from the previous version thanks to 32mm stanchions and a lighter version of the Fit 4 damper giving riders 3-position adjust (Open, Medium, and Firm) and 22 clicks of low-speed compression damping in Open mode. The stepped lower legs provide clearance for the disc brake mount, tucking it where the lower fork previously resided. Not only does this stepped lower provide ample clearance for wheel and brake hardware, but it also significantly reduces weight with a hollow lower section that's the result of shortening the upper tube length and raising the magnesium lower assembly. And although the new Step Cast Chassis is 10mm narrower than the previous version, it still accommodates 2. 3in tires for plenty of traction and bump compliance on technical courses where wider rubber is warranted. The Float Air spring remains unchanged, and that's a good thing if you're seeking smooth travel and tunable support with the addition of air volume spacers. Its self-equalizing negative air spring provides a plush, linear feel in the stock configuration of 2 air volume spacers. Adding more (it handles up to 4) increases the fork's progressiveness and reluctance to bottom out on bigger drops and larger trail obstacles. Rounding things out, FOX employs its 15 x 100mm Kabolt thru-axle for increased stiffness and slight weight savings over a comparable quick-release.

FOX Racing Shox 32 Float SC 29 100 Remote-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 32 Float SC 29 100 Remote-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017
FOX Racing Shox has been in full-on Renaissance mode for the past few years, hitting first the 36 and then the 34 Float line with the upgrade hammer. This year, it's the 32's turn, and the 32 Float SC 29 100 Remote-Adj FIT4 Fork benefits to the tune of shaving approximately 255g or 15 percent from a similarly spec'd 32 FLOAT Fork. Those dropped grams manifest primarily in the reworked chassis, but FOX's handlebar-mounted, cable-actuated damper toggle switch returns, proving that some things are best left untampered with. That list doesn't include the fork's uppers or lowers, though. The SC chassis is 10mm narrower than the previous iteration for a ridiculously light fork that maximizes efficiency for XC endurance events. The stepped magnesium lower legs accommodate the fork's narrower chassis by clearing space for the disc brake mount, but it's also hollowed out to further contribute to weight loss. The shorter upper tube also does its part on the weight-loss front, operating along the simple logic that less material equals less weight. Despite these smaller dimensions, the SC chassis still accommodates 2. 3in tires for plenty of traction and bump compliance on technical courses where wider rubber is warranted. The 32 Float also incorporates FOX's latest FIT4 damper, which features three levels of lock-out that can be adjusted from the saddle with the bar-mounted switch. The Firm, Medium, and Open settings are similar to the previous FOX damper model's Climb, Trail, and Descend with one key difference: the sub-setting adjustments have migrated from the Trail setting to the Open setting. The Float Air spring remains unchanged, so it still offers smooth travel and the option to add spacers in order to tune the ramp-up. Its self-equalizing negative air spring provides a plush, linear feel in the stock configuration of two air volume spacers. Adding more (it handles up to four) increases the fork's progressiveness and reluctance to bottom out on bigger drops and l...

FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 27.5 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 27.5 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017
The 2017 FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 27. 5 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork marks the return of 2016's much-loved updates to the trail with 140mm of plush travel for a smooth ride and impeccable control through the rough. As with the 2016 model, the fork's chassis and Float Air spring shed weight while still increasing stiffness. While this looks awesome on paper, it's even better once you get out on the trail. The Fit4's Damper's puffed out, 10mm shaft increases oil flow to the base valve, allowing the fork to ride high for quick, controlled recovery during everything from big, square hits to successive, small impacts. The 3-position Fit4 system also takes the reins from the old CTD system, changing the names from the overly-prescriptive categories of Climb, Trail, and Descend to a graduating scale covering Firm, Medium, and Open. While this change may read like an exercise in semantics, it entails a radical realignment of the 34 Float's capabilities that addresses virtually every issue we've had with the CTD damper in the past. Perhaps the most welcome change from earlier Fit dampers is that Fit4 migrates the adjustable sub settings from CTD's median Trail mode to the new Open setting. Open encompasses both Descend and Trail in order to take full advantage of the fork's high ride by handling most compression duties. This makes the fork that much more relevant to all-mountain situations, combining better small-bump compliance with more confident tracking through rock gardens and rough terrain. It doesn't wallow and handling stays on point. The Medium setting migrates much deeper into the firm side of compression than the Trail setting did, so it'll suffice in most conditions that don't require use of the big-bottomed Open setting. The Firm setting remains self-explanatory: an XC lock-out for turning on the afterburners when terrain allows. It'll likely see much less use in the new system, but we still appreciate Firm while riding to the trailhead or transitioning on fire ...

While this change may read like an exercise in semantics, it entails a radical realignment of the 34 Float's capabilities that addresses virtually every issue we've had with the CTD damper in the past. Perhaps the most welcome change from earlier Fit dampers is that Fit4 migrates the adjustable sub settings from CTD's median Trail mode to the new Open setting. Open encompasses both Descend and Trail in order to take full advantage of the fork's high ride by handling most compression duties. This makes the fork that much more relevant to all-mountain situations, combining better small-bump compliance with more confident tracking through rock gardens and rough terrain. It doesn't wallow and handling stays on point. The Medium setting migrates much deeper into the firm side of compression than the Trail setting did, so it'll suffice in most conditions that don't require use of the big-bottomed Open setting. The Firm setting remains self-explanatory: an XC lock-out for turning on the afterburners when terrain allows. It'll likely see much less use in the new system, but we still appreciate Firm while riding to the trailhead ...

FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 27.5 Plus 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork (51mm Rake) - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 27.5 Plus 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork (51mm Rake) - 2017
Polarized opinions on wheel size aside, nobody can argue with the pure speed of a 27. 5in wheel in comparison to the old standard 26in fare. For those of us looking to harness that speed while maintaining some of the low-speed nimbleness of smaller wheels, FOX Racing Shox offers the 2017 34 Float 27. 5 Plus 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork with 51mm Rake. A fork with 51mm of rake 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 slacker geometries, so handling stays 26er-sharp at all speeds, whether climbing, ripping, or navigating switchbacks and tricky terrain. Instead of the Climb, Trail, and Descend settings of CTD, the 3-position FIT4 system toggles between the more descriptive Firm, Medium, and Open settings. While this change may read like an exercise in semantics, it actually entails a radical realignment of the 34 Float's capabilities to make sure the fork rides high for quick, controlled recovery during everything from big, square hits to the kind of successive, small impacts that bigger wheels thrive on. FIT4 migrates the adjustable sub settings from CTD's median Trail mode to the new Open setting. Open encompasses the range once divided between Descend and Trail in order to take full advantage of the fork's tendency to ride high, combining better small-bump compliance with more confident tracking across successive impacts and rough terrain. The Medium setting is much firmer, handling duties ranging from lightly rooted trails to climbing, and the Firm setting is largely relegated to fast hardpack and fire road transitions. The Float air spring omits a negative coil in favor of a self-equalizing air assembly. This is similar to the air spring chamber system that made the re-worked 36 series such a success, and its omission of a steel coil is a key contributor to the o...

There's nothing wrong with six-inch enduro bikes, but some of us enjoy the ups of trail riding as much as the DH, reveling in pedaling every inch of our dirt loops. FOX Racing Shox builds the 34 Float 29 120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork with 51mm Rake for those riders, adding a kicked-out axle to its newly reworked XC wagon wheel weapon. It's stiffer and lighter than the previous model, and it also hits the sweet spot of sub-5in travel that recommends it for aggressive XC or dicing through knotty root sections. A fork with 51mm of rake 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.

From complaints about suspension to whining about sloppy, floppy steering, the 29er faithful have withstood years of abuse heaped on their preferred platform. The recent trend of aggressive, mid-travel 29ers puts the suspension critique firmly to bed, and the 51mm of Rake in FOX Racing Shox 34 Float 29 130 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork stifles the whiners who would complain about poor handling at low speeds.

Conventional wisdom suggests 29ers are only viable at high speed on smooth hardpack. FOX Racing Shox doesn't give a damn. The brand's 34 Float 29 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork with 51mm Rake combines five inches of generous travel, a high-riding tendency, and an offset axle to aid in low-speed maneuvers -- in short, all of the benefits of wagon wheels' high angle of attack and none of the downsides that relegated earlier generations to the XC life. A fork with 51mm of rake 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 Fit4 returns unchanged for 2017, so it still toggles between a menu of Firm, Medium, and Open settings. The Open setting encompasses the range that FOX's old model, CTD, divided between Descend and Trail. We tend to spend most of our time in Open in order to take full advantage of the fork's high-riding tendencies, combining better small-bump compliance with more confident tracking across successive impacts and rough terrain. The Medium setting is much firmer now, handling duties ranging from rooty trails to climbing, and the Firm setting is now largely relegated to fast hardpack and fire road transitions. FOX's tinkering wasn't just confined to the damper, though, as the Float air spring now omits the negative coil in favor of a self-equalizing air assembly. This is similar to the air spring chamber system that made the re-worked 36 series such a success, and its omission of a steel coil is a key contributor to the overall claimed weight loss of 297 grams -- quite a feat when you consider that the latest 34 Float 29 also retains the 2016 model's gains in stiffness.

We don't think it's a stretch to assert that FOX Racing Shox's TALAS technology carries with it a futuristic air, one that suggests where mountain bike travel could be headed with time. As it is now, the 34 TALAS 27. 5 150-120 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork offers its rider the choice to set the fork to either 150mm of bump-devouring plushness or 120mm of well-placed, responsive cush. This adjustability matches the trend toward do-it-all 27. 5in frames that we've seen dominating the industry as of late because if your trail bike was designed to go enduro on big lines yet climb like a nimble XC frame, it will only be as capable as its suspension. For 2017, FOX keeps its focus on leveling the playing field across its line, updating standards and letting the strong improvements it's made over the past two years stand unchanged for the most part. Introductions like FIT4 continue much as we've known them, receiving a slight retune for improved sensitivity this year. The FIT4 damper allows you to use the fork's travel in more clearly defined categories of Firm, Medium, and Open settings. The latter also includes a range of sub settings, which give room to fine-tune just how open you want the fork to ride, depending on how rowdy you plan on getting. Medium has become a responsive setting suited to lightly rooted flats and fast, rock-lined singletrack. We'd reserve the Firm setting purely for climbs on smooth singletrack and fire road transitions, as its name doesn't overstate its lockout abilities.

FOX Racing Shox 36 Float 27.5 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 36 Float 27.5 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017
FOX Racing Shox's history of targeted innovation demonstrates that it doesn't feel the need to constantly make updates for the sake of having something new to boast about. For 2017, FOX is content with the advancements it made last year and confident that the design is the best it has to offer -- for now. The 36 Float 27. 5 140 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork's wide range of adjustability and lightweight, consistent, dual-spring air chamber continue to provide an enviable balance between weight and enduro capability. As you and your enduro rig chug down apocalyptic lines, you'll have the option to choose between the FIT4 damper's Firm, Medium, and Open settings. For anything more daunting than sidewalk cracks, we see no reason not to choose the latter, which itself features an additional range of sub settings to allow you to take full advantage of the fork's range of high-riding travel. Firm and Medium encompass their own well-defined spaces. Medium is able to take over on lumpy flats and rolling stretches of unruly hard pack, and Firm's lockout setting is relegated strictly to fire road transitions and the steepest, smoothest climbs. This versatility and control is backed by FOX's dual-chamber air spring, a self-equalizing design that dumped weight over previous coil spring models. Additionally, you'll have the reliability of Kashima-coated aluminum stanchions and magnesium lowers offering the dependability you've come to know and expect from FOX.

FOX Racing Shox 36 Float 27.5 150 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 36 Float 27.5 150 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017
The time has finally come to build up your dream enduro machine for a season of harder hits, bigger lines, and miles of brown pow, and you want to make sure you have the right fork leading the way through the rough stuff. FOX Racing Shox has years of demonstrated success in building capable high-end forks, and the brand knows when to introduce significant changes and when it's achieved a product worth keeping the same for a season or two. The 2017 36 Float 27. 5 150 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork is an excellent example of this balance; after making a host of changes in 2016, FOX saw no need to alter its dependable, responsive design for 2017, and the result is almost six inches of plush travel and a reactive fork built to tackle terrain changes and technical lines with decisive control. As we mentioned, most of the 36 Float's design remains the same as its 2016 predecessor, meaning it enjoys the same chassis from last year that shed grams while stiffening the crown, stanchions, and lowers. The redesign also streamlined installation, eliminating the consequence of a slightly altered geometry that was a standard amongst earlier generations. FOX also updated its FIT4 damper last year, and it returns with the same clearly defined Firm, Medium, and Open settings that enable you to use the entire range of the fork's travel and keep it riding high, able to respond quickly to successive hits without lagging behind. On fire road transitions and smooth climbs, Firm will keep power moving through to the pedals rather than leaving you wallowing in too much cush, while Medium takes over on the small, repetitive bumps in the tight and twisties. When you're challenging your suspension to do exactly what it was designed for, the 22 sub settings in the Open mode allow you to differentiate between large, crater-filled descents, boulder-strewn rock gardens, and lift-accessed lines where you spend more time in the air than on the ground.

We were pretty impressed with FOX Racing Shox's 2015 and 2016 models of the 36 Float, which is why we're pleased to be giving yet another glowing report for the 2017 36 Float 27. 5 160 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Boost Fork. We're all for innovation and change, but we don't just blindly accept "new" as being "better", and neither should you. In the case of the 36 Float, however, each new model year continues to deliver a better design, with FOX showing admirable restraint by retaining design features that work too well to be modified while introducing slight tweaks to areas that need it. That's a strategy we can wholeheartedly get excited about. In 2017, the biggest story about the 36 Float is that it's received Boost spacing. Last year, Boost was just starting to make ripples across the industry when FOX was working on the 2016 line, so the 36 Float was left conservatively Boost-free. Now, Boost has made its way into the rest of the Float lineup, so you and your burly all-mountain machine can benefit from the increased stiffness and responsiveness of Boost spacing when barreling over boulder-lined stretches of trail and taking chances on big sends. The steerer, crown, stanchions, lowers, and Float Air spring are all unchanged from last year's models, with the chassis still benefitting from previous years' enviable balance of stiffness and low weight. The FIT4 damper also makes a triumphant return, allowing you to switch between Firm, Medium, and Open settings to access the fork's entire range of capabilities. Boasting a significant improvement in versatility over FOX's CTD system, FIT4 shows it's here to stay. Open is the big star with 22 adjustable sub settings to allow you to use all six inches of the fork's hit-swallowing plushness, small-bump compliance, and ability to react to successively rugged terrain quickly and decisively. For the times there's no way around taking your rig up a long climb, the 36 Float's firm lockout will feel like a gift from above, allowing yo...

FOX Racing Shox 36 Float 27.5 160 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017 FOX Racing Shox 36 Float 27.5 160 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork - 2017
Building up your all-mountain rig with a fork that can handle the terrain you're dreaming about barreling into, over, and out of on a regular basis is key; after all, you don't want to load your frame down with something heavy and unyielding, but you don't want to take a featherweight fork to the edges of its capabilities every time you take a bigger-than-expected hit. FOX Racing Shox makes it pretty easy to pick and choose the features that will deliver the ride quality you want within its Float line, and its 36 Float 27. 5 160 3Pos-Adj FIT4 Fork comes with an all-mountain attitude and the efficiency of FOX's recently redesigned Air Spring. Last year, FOX introduced some pretty significant changes across its Float line, and the glowing feedback from the industry glossies made it impossible to ignore those changes. After introducing such a strong lineup of redesigned forks in 2016, FOX is taking 2017 to be satisfied -- for now -- with the impressive balance of stiffness and low weight it's achieved across the Float line. That means that for 2017, the 36 Float has the proven benefit of a lighter, stiffer chassis whose shorter axle-to-crown measurement makes installation straightforward, necessitating few alterations to your frame's front end geometry. During the times you and your enduro beast need to raise the dropper and trudge up a climb, the added stiffness keeps power going into the trail so you don't end up wallowing in plush suspension when you don't need it. Aside from a few sporadic climbs, most of your rides will be focused on big hits and apocalyptic lines, and the 36 Float's dual-chamber air spring is eagerly waiting to initiate bump-absorbing cush over any trail furniture that stands in its way. The fork's low number of smoother seals allows it to respond quickly and initiate travel without any indecisive pauses, but if you want to modify initiation timing, FOX gives you the option of adding volume spacers for a harder ramp-up.

FOX Racing Shox's 36 Float line already received its fair share of updates and improvements over the last couple of seasons, and FOX is -- for now -- satisfied that they still deliver the ideal blend of burly all-mountain attitude on a lightweight, stiff chassis. The 36 Float 27. 5 160 HSC/LSC FIT Fork delivers all of the reliability and bump-devouring cush that made you jealous of last year's version, complete with FOX's efficient HSC/LSC damper and lightweight FLOAT air spring. Last year, the 36 Float received a lighter, stiffer chassis with a shorter axle-to-crown measurement compared to previous versions. This makes installation far more streamlined, without demanding significant changes to frame geometry. While you challenge your capable enduro beast to trudge up climbs before rallying over apocalyptic lines, FOX's self-equalizing dual-chamber FLOAT air spring will keep the fork responding quickly to successive hits, initiating travel without any indecisive pauses. If out-of-the-box functionality doesn't quite match your style, FOX gives you the option of adding volume spacers to the spring for a harder ramp-up. Once you're out on the trails, you'll also be able to fine-tune the fork's behavior using the HSC/LSC damper, which offers a well-defined range of sub settings that allow you to control your ride quality on everything from the tight and twisties to lift-accessed lines that have you spending more time in the air than on the ground.

Over six-and-a-half inches of travel should be enough to keep you and your enduro monster upright as you barrel through nearly impassable lines. But you won't be spending your entire ride descending, so you need a fork that can help you out on the flats and the rare, laborious climbs as well. It should come as no surprise that FOX Racing Shox has this precipitous balance confidently dialed. The 36 Float 27. 5 170 HSC/LSC FIT Fork is able to react quickly on repetitive bumps and fire road transitions while delivering a welcome dose of cush when your landing pad is a rock garden. The 36 Float sees few changes for 2017, so it retains the efficient, lightweight chassis design along the crown and lowers that earned it rave reviews when first introduced. Installation remains simple and streamlined, with the 36 Float requiring little-to-no alterations to your bike's front end geometry. FOX trusts its dual-chamber, self-equalizing Float Air spring once again in the 36 Float. It shaved weight over its predecessor by replacing the negative coil with a second air chamber, and it requires less force to initiate travel than previous versions. If quick initiation is only part of the story for you, FOX also gives you the freedom to offset it with volume spacers to make the fork ramp-up harder and get the exact behavior you need out of your fork. All-mountain and enduro bikes continue to defy categorization more than ever each year, so to guarantee the 36 Float versatility worthy of your do-it-all frame, FOX includes its HSC/LSC FIT damper to let you control high-speed and low-speed compression. You can adjust it to fine-tune the fork's behavior through everything from crater-lined singletrack to torturous, smooth climbs -- it won't do the work for you, but it'll help you avoid wallowing in too much cush when you need firm responsiveness.

With all the changes we saw in the 2016 line of FOX Racing Shox forks, it's nice to see them back relatively unchanged for the 2017 model year. As such, the 2017 FOX Racing Shox 36 Float 29 150 HSC/LSC FIT Fork (51mm Rake) is back with the much-loved updates that took the enduro and XC worlds by storm.As with the 2016 version, the crown and magnesium lowers are lighter, lower, and stiffer than previous iterations, which makes for easier work cleaning steep climbs between downhill fun zones. The changes also net shorter axle-to-crown measurements across the board, so the frame's head angle doesn't drastically change between forks. While the materials in the chassis are roughly the same, FOX opts for a newly formulated, higher-viscosity proprietary fork oil for smoother, more responsive travel.The new Float air spring also enjoys significant revision over the pre-2016 model, with FOX seeing off the old negative coil spring in favor a dual-chamber air spring. This neat trick of metal-to-air alchemy may be the single biggest contributor to the fork's weight loss, and when it's paired with the reduced number of smoother seals, it means the fork requires less force to initiate travel. It maintains excellent small bump compliance without completely obscuring your feel for the trail. The air spring can also be dialed to ramp-up harder by customizing its compression curve with internal spacers, and the other leg's HSC/LSC FIT damper lets you tune the fork's behavior to complement your own approach toward big hits, slow inputs, and everything in between.

It offers 30mm of adjustable travel with the flip of a switch so you can confidently tackle rowdy drops and technical trails without losing efficiency on the ascents.The fork's adjustable travel allows riders to drop the front end to a trail-worthy 130mm of travel for enhanced climbing efficiency without the unwieldy feel inherent in longer-travel forks. Suddenly, pedaling up long fire roads, steep singletrack, and unrelenting switchbacks is much easier, allowing you to save energy for the wicked descent. And when it's time to get rowdy on the downhill, simply flick the TALAS switch to its maximum setting for 160mm of plush, terrain-gobbling travel.The FIT4 Damper's puffed out, 10mm shaft increases oil flow to the base valve, allowing the fork to ride high for quick, controlled recovery during everything from big, square hits to successive, small impacts. The 3-position FIT4 system also takes the reigns from the old CTD system, changing the names from the overly-prescriptive categories of Climb, Trail, and Descend to a graduating scale covering Firm, Medium, and Open. While this change may read like an exercise in semantics, it entails a radical realignment of the 36 Float's capabilities that addresses virtually every issue we've had with CTD's damper in the past.FIT4 also migrates the adjustable sub settings from CTD's median Trail mode to the new Open setting. Open encompasses both Descend and Trail in order to take full advantage of the fork's high ride by handling most compression duties. This makes the fork that much more relevant to all-mountain situations, combining better small-bump compliance with more confident tracking through rock gardens and rough terrain.The Medium setting migrates much deeper into the firm side of compression than the Trail setting did, ...

FOX Racing Shox Dust Wiper Kit FOX Racing Shox Dust Wiper Kit
The Fox Dust Wiper Kit works with Fox's ultra-smooth Kashima coating to make Fox forks some of the smoothest-functioning in the industry. Unfortunately, dirt can eventually cause the seals to leak and will need to be replaced when the fork is overhauled. Fox partnered with legendary seal manufacturer SKF to develop it slow-friction fork seals. They are an important first line of defense in keeping your fork functioning smoothly.

FOX Racing Shox Float Volume Spacer FOX Racing Shox Float Volume Spacer
Before you pack up the car and head to Moab, firm up your ride in anticipation of the big hits and steep drops you're about to rally all over with the FOX Racing Shox Float Volume Spacer. This innocuous plastic bit proves that good things come in small packages. By taking up space in your fork, a spacer steepens the compression curve at the end of the stroke to eliminate squishy dives when you're heading into chunky terrain. Depending on the amount of spacers you use, you'll establish a harsher, more responsive ride heading into berms and smooth spots that you can reverse when you get home if needed.

Lauf Carbonara Fat Bike Suspension Fork Lauf Carbonara Fat Bike Suspension Fork
Lauf's forks have garnered quite the buzz with their leafspring design and unique aesthetic, and there may be no place that maintenance-free bump absorption is better suited than on a fat bike. Inherently quirky, the Lauf's design seems right at home on a burly frame matched with beefy tires and utilitarian frame baggage, just waiting to head off into the unknown.With 60mm of travel provided by S2 glassfiber springs slotted into a carbon body, the Carbonara falls somewhere in between the plushly damped, heavier ride of a traditional fat suspension fork and a feathery yet uncushioned rigid option. Lauf claims that the travel is progressive, meaning it gets stiffer as it compresses to prevent bottom outs while still smoothing out the smaller bumps along the way. The leafspring design does pride simplicity and freedom from maintenance over adjustability, which means the overall feel of the travel will vary across riders and is highly dependent on rider weight.To make up for the lack of adjustability or tuning options, Lauf offers the Carbonara in two different spring rates. This particular fork comes with the "regular" spring rate, accompanied by a rider weight recommendation of 176 pounds and up. That isn't to say that lighter riders can't ride it, but just that those under the weight recommendation will experience a stiffer ride than originally intended with this fork.

Lauf Grit Suspension Fork Lauf Grit Suspension Fork
If road cycling is the epitome of long-held traditions and narrowly defined style, then gravel is its antithesis, eschewing mainstream mannerisms to push the edges of unique and utilitarian design. As such, it isn't surprising that Lauf has adapted its eye-catchingly unparalleled leafspring suspension design to the gravel with its Grit Suspension Fork. Gram-counting racers will likely shy away from this fork in preference for lightweight, rigid speed, but for those us looking for a boost of cushioned comfort without the added maintenance and hassle of a traditional suspension fork, the Grit is just what we've been waiting for. Not to mention that a Grit-equipped bike is guaranteed to stand out from the crowd and be a conversation piece on any ride.With 30mm of travel provided by rows of S2 glassfiber springs slotted into a carbon fiber body, the Grit is designed to soak up the rattly bumps of spottily maintained roads miles away from civilization. Lauf claims that the travel is progressive, meaning it gets stiffer as it compresses to prevent bottom outs while still smoothing out the smaller bumps along the way.

In the never ending quest to push the limits of N+1, building up that new hardtail frame with a Lauf Trail Racer 29/27. 5+ Boost Suspension Fork may just be the perfect way to create a unique addition to your quiver of discipline-specific rides. Its eye-catching leafspring design doesn't attempt to challenge to aggressive, laterally rigid, and highly adjustable race suspension forks, and instead brings a blend of cushy, undamped travel and maintenance-free ease of use to reduce fatigue over long, bumpy miles and variable weather. The Trail Racer's 60mm of travel is provided by four sets of three S2 glassfiber springs bonded into a carbon fiber body, allowing the wheel axle to move across the range. Lauf claims that the travel is progressive, meaning it gets stiffer as it compresses to prevent bottom outs while still smoothing out the smaller bumps along the way. However, what the leafsprings design gains in simplicity, maintenance-free utility, and weather-resistant function, it loses in adjustability and both lateral and torsional rigidity. This means that aggressive terrain and out-of-the-saddle efforts may be met with handling that feels more noodly than sure-footed and bigger hits might encourage a destabilizing pogo effect. Not all of us aspire to XC greatness though, and the Trail Racer's star shines brightest when soaking up the bumps of remote fire roads, crushed stone byways, and light singletrack, making it the ideal companion to reduce fatigue and extend the enjoyment of adventures over scenic roads less traveled.To make up for the lack of adjustability or tuning options, Lauf offers the Trail Racer in two different spring rates. This particular fork comes with the "regular" spring rate, accompanied by a rider weight recommendation of 143 pounds and higher. That isn't to say that lighter riders can't ride it, but just that those under the weight recommendation will experience a stiffer ride than originally intended with this fork.

MRP Ramp Control Cartridge MRP Ramp Control Cartridge
Transitioning from lift laps to your favorite trail system usually means making some compromises in your fork's performance unless you've got the time and tools to fiddle with tokens at home. MRP's Ramp Control Cartridge looks to take the hassle out of ramp-up adjustments, replacing the token system for on-the-fly bottom out control that lets you adjust to the current terrain. The Ramp Control Cartridge replaces the top cap and token assembly of current generation Rock Shox Pike, Lyrik, Yari, and Boxxer World Cup Solo Air forks. It takes up about the same space as a single token for similar ramp up when it's wide open, and adjusts from there for additional bottom-out support with 16 clicks of adjustability. This adjustability only impacts the end of the stroke, so you're able to maintain a supple initial feel and overall behavior of the fork with the damper and air pressure while tightening down big-hit capability as much or as little as you need.The Model A is compatible with 2013-2016 Rock Shox Pike forks with 15 x 100mm axle spacing, as well as 2010 and newer Boxxer World Cup Solo Air forks.

Ohlins RXF 34 120 Fork - 29in Ohlins RXF 34 120 Fork - 29in
Up until now, Ohlins Racing has limited its mountain bike endeavors to building rear shocks and replacement parts for some of the biggest suspension and bike manufacturers in the US, but the legendary Swedes are expanding their scope to include forks. The brand's signature blue and yellow is now present on the seals of the all-new, 29in RXF 34 120 Fork, which is the result of a partnership with one of those US manufacturers and represents Ohlins bringing its not inconsiderable expertise to the off-road fork world for the first time. Since Ohlins is so exclusive that it doesn't even offer top moto athletes free gear, we're not surprised that it came up with a design that's truly unique in the mountain bike field. The RXF 34 is the only fork on the market to feature a twin tube damper, which separates the rebound and compression oil flow. Since the twin tube design lets the oil flow parallel and independently, the fork maintains optimal pressure at all times, riding higher with a smoother initial stroke. It maintains consistent, predictable small bump compliance across successive hits to leave you more in control of your lines and with more responsive traction. The fork also includes an addition to its other leg, adding an extra positive chamber to the typical air spring loadout of one negative and one positive. The presence of two positive chambers means that the resistance can be dialed externally -- yep, without internal spacers -- to alter the compression curve, so the fork can be set to maintain that initial suppleness but ramp-up harder to avoid bottoming out on big hits. The RXF 34 climbs with confident traction but won't sell you out by diving on rowdy descents. Given the host of absurdly versatile all-mountain 29ers we've been seeing unveiled over the past year, this added versatility in fork suspension is not only a plus, we suspect it'll become a necessary feature by the next product cycle.

If you're into any kind of extreme motorsports -- enduro, MotoGP, Rallycross -- then you're all too aware of the mystique enjoyed by Ohlins Racing. Like many of the top cycling products, Ohlins' suspension products are often used clandestinely by non-sponsored athletes because, simply put, they're pretty much impossible to beat. The 29in RXF 34 160 Fork brings the Swedish brand's expertise from the motorized enduro world to the self-propelled one, outfitting the new breed of hyper-aggressive 29er enduro sleds with a fork that's versatile and stiff enough to take advantage of every opportunity to gain seconds. In terms of world-class enduro racing, Swedish is the new breed. There's a reason why we were compelled to cite Ohlins' innovative dominance in different sports to whet your appetite, and it manifests in the fact that the fork's design is, well, dominantly innovative. The RXF 34 is the only fork on the market to feature a twin tube damper, which separates the rebound and compression oil flow.

It maintains consistent, predictable small bump compliance across successive hits to leave you more in control of your lines and with more responsive traction.

It's got an additional positive chamber, adding a third member to the typical air spring loadout of one negative and one positive that effectively replaces the need for internal spacers. The presence of two positive chambers means that the resistance can be dialed to alter the compression curve without adding spacers, so the fork can be set to maintain its initial suppleness but ramp-up harder to avoid bottoming out on big hits.

Historically, the perfect suspension tune has been a vaguely mythical ideal attainable only by a select few intuitively gifted individuals, while the rest of us read conflicting online articles to guide tweaks and cling to the hope that our forks and shocks are at least somewhere in the vicinity of a workable tune. Given that climate, Quarq's ShockWiz is positioned to drastically improve ride quality and bring suspension tune dynamics into clearer focus for a large portion of the cycling population.Arriving as a rather unassuming little square, ShockWiz houses an internal pressure sensor and microprocessor that pair to run diagnostics on your suspension while you ride. The system attaches to your air-sprung shock or fork's Schrader valve with a sleek hose that allows ShockWiz to collect 100 pressure readings per second for instant, continuous analysis to determine how well your suspension setup in working for you. The ShockWiz takes in the whole picture of pressure changes and looks for negative characteristics such as pogo, pack-down, and bob, and stores away data on their severity. After the ride, just open up your smartphone and click on the ShockWiz app to get feedback and specific adjustment suggestions to improve your shock tune for a better ride next time you hit the trail.

The 27. 5in RockShox Lyrik RCT3 Dual Position Air 160 Boost Fork brings all the hard-charging ability we loved about the previous Lyric and adds newly tapered legs, an elongated brace, and a Boost axle width for increased stiffness and control on almost any terrain you dare approach. Since the Pike has become the default enduro fork, comparing the two is an apt exercise. The key differences between the Pike and the renovated Lyrik lie in the latter's body, which enjoys a general reinforcement throughout. The 35mm stanchions are similar to the Pike's, but they beef out more at the crown. The crown itself is also sturdier, as are the lowers, and the overall effect is a noticeable gain in stiffness. If you often find yourself questioning the prudence of your line selection, then you'll appreciate the Lyrik's stiff, confident tracking as an alternative to constantly correcting lines in the middle of terrain features. The Lyrik runs a Dual Position Air spring with a large negative chamber and a new SKF cartridge seal that nets claimed reductions in friction and increases in intervals between servicing. This seal and chamber combination creates a smooth initial stroke and contributes to the Lyrik's uncanny ability to stay on top of successive, small bumps and alleviate brake dive--both of which it does better than the Pike. RockShox preserved certain elements of the original Lyrik that made it the all-mountain favorite to begin with, including the RCT3 Charger damper, Fast Black coating, and Solo Air shock design. Depending on whether you're climbing up or dropping in, the fork's settings can be dialed by the three-position RCT3 switch, which lets you choose discreet amounts of damping for bigger hits, trail terrain, or cross-country speed. RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature indulges the Lyrik's terrain-gobbling tendencies by keeping recovery between hits short, so you'll always have that cushion, even through multiple successive bumps.

When RockShox first unveiled the Pike, the previous iteration of the 27. 5in Lyrik RCT3 Solo Air 160 Boost Fork met an ignominious end at its hands. After the dust settled, it was clear that the Pike was king. But the Lyrik is back, and it's brought a host of chassis updates and a Boost axle in a bid to supplant the upstart Pike as RockShox's go-to for enduro and all-mountain applications. The king is dead; long live the king. The key differences between the Pike and the revived Lyrik lie in the body, which enjoys a general reinforcement throughout. The 35mm stanchions are similar to the Pike's, but they beef-out more at the crown.

The Lyrik also has a larger negative chamber than the Pike and a new SKF cartridge seal that nets claimed reductions in friction and increases in intervals between servicing.

RockShox preserved certain elements of the original Lyrik that made it the favorite to begin with, including the RCT3 Charger damper and Fast Black coating, and Solo Air shock design. Depending on whether you're climbing up or dropping in, the fork's settings can be dialed by the three-position RCT3 switch, which lets you choose discreet amounts of lockout for bigger hits, trail terrain, or cross-country speed.

RockShox Lyrik RCT3 Solo Air 180 Fork - 27.5in RockShox Lyrik RCT3 Solo Air 180 Fork - 27.5in
With 180mm of bottomless travel, mid-sized wheel versatility, a legendary pedigree of big-hit dominance, and a newly reinforced chassis, the resurrected 27. 5in Lyrik RCT3 Solo Air 180 Fork may be the only plausible challenger to the Pike's all-mountain throne. We doubt RockShox is sweating the competition, though, as both venerable enduro weapons originated in that brand's engineering department. The key differences between the Pike and the Lyrik lie in the body, which enjoys a general reinforcement throughout. The 35mm stanchions are similar to the Pike's, but they beef out more at the crown. The crown itself is also sturdier, as are the lowers, and the overall effect is a noticeable gain in stiffness. If you often find yourself questioning the prudence of your line selection, then you'll appreciate the Lyrik's stiff, confident tracking as an alternative to constantly correcting lines in the middle of terrain features. The Lyrik also has a larger negative chamber than the Pike and a new SKF cartridge seal that nets a claimed reduction in friction and an increase in intervals between servicing. Since it's running the same Solo Air spring as the Pike, we can only assume that the seal and chamber changes are responsible for the Lyrik's smooth initial stroke. Despite its big hit travel, it's also got an uncanny ability to stay on top of successive, small bumps and alleviate brake dive -- both of which it does better than the Pike. RockShox preserved certain elements of the original Lyrik that made it the favorite to begin with, including the RCT3 Charger damper, Fast Black coating, and Solo Air shock design.

RockShox Pike Bottomless Tokens RockShox Pike Bottomless Tokens
The RockShox Pike Bottomless Tokens may sound like a video game power-up, and, well, yeah, that's kind of what they are in real life, too. The idea is that you install the bottomless tokens in your Pike fork to reduce its air volume, creating a greater ramp-up of pressure at the end of the fork's travel so as to create a "bottomless" feel, depending on the style of riding you observe. For example, more aggressive, gravity-oriented folks might want to add two or three, depending on the travel length and wheel size of their Pike. The tokens come in a package of three. If you have any questions or concerns about the bottomless tokens, just let us know and we'll help you out.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Dual Position Air 150 Fork - 29in RockShox Pike RCT3 Dual Position Air 150 Fork - 29in
The six inches of travel and 29in wheel capacity that RockShox packed into the Pike RCT3 Dual Position Air 150 Fork make it like middle-of-the-road Goldilocks of forks. Just kidding. It's nothing like that. If anything, this wagon-wheel brute and its 35mm stanchions are like Papa Bear -- if Papa Bear also ate the other two bears and the ringleted intruder. 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 turn a shade darker than "just right" after you've dropped in. 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. The resulting chassis tracks so well that RockShox felt confident outfitting the Pike with a lighter weight 15mm Maxle Lite quick-release thru-axle to help keep the weight down for climbing at the highest levels of 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. Extending the travel to its full, glorious six inches practically lays the red carpet across rock gardens and chutes for rallying down gnarly descents. 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 damper consistency, especially during the long, heavy runs the Pike RCT3's huge travel excels on. The rebound circuit 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.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Dual Position Air 160 Fork - 27.5in RockShox Pike RCT3 Dual Position Air 160 Fork - 27.5in
By now, the much-beloved, much-reviewed, and much-envied RockShox Pike RCT3 Dual Position Air 160 27. 5in Fork has created a bit more than a mole hill of all-mountain notoriety. From the World Cup podium to private POV camera stages the world over, the Pike RCT3 Dual Position models have been the lynchpin around which the most aggressive rides and nastiest lines revolve. 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. There's a reason why so many other manufacturers have recently felt compelled to completely redesign their fork lines. And this is it. 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.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 120 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 120 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in
The 51mm of offset in this RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 120 29in Fork reduces the amount of wheel flop commonly associated with 29er handling at low speeds by reducing the bike's trail, which results in less "dead" space between the steering axis and the hub. The aim is to reduce handling issues so the wagon wheels stay 26er-sharp 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 travel option of just under five inches. 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 that can still tackle trail terrain. 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 reinforces the lower legs with oversized bushings, helping the front end maintain lines across terrain that pushes the limits of XC.

Those days are behind us, and the RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 120 Boost Fork for 29ers and 27. 5+ wheels ushers in the new era of increased stiffness and tracking that the oversized axles bring to a trail bike.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 130 Boost Fork - 27.5in RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 130 Boost Fork - 27.5in
The 27. 5in RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 130 Boost Fork pairs race-ready speed and smooth travel with a Boost axle width for a stable, confident ride that fights off deflection like a highly caffeinated honey badger. Add to that the Pike's stellar reputation for durability and adjustability, and this fork is ready to tackle almost any trail with abandon. The Solo Air fork ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 130mm travel position. You lose the ability to drop the front end of your bike by a couple of centimeters to make it more aggressive on the climbs, but save about 50 extra grams. Don't be fooled though, the RCT3 can still climb with the best of them with an adjustable Charger damper and will shine like a star on the steepest, most technical descents you can find. That said, the Pike wouldn't be at the front of the pack if it were rigidly un-adjustable. Depending on the terrain you're climbing or dropping in to, the fork's settings can be dialed by the three-position RCT3 switch, letting you choose the amount of lockout for big hits, general trail terrain, or cross-country speed. RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature indulges the RCT3's terrain-gobbling tendencies by keeping recovery between hits short, maintaining a cushioned ride over multiple successive bumps. The Maxle Ultimate axle is an exceptionally easy to install version of RockShox's standard model. It boasts tool-free installation that can be completed with just one hand and stiff, efficient power transfer. The questionably named Power Bulge feature contributes to stiffness with a reinforced lower leg and oversized bushing that don't require an increase in stanchion size. The Pike is finished with a PSI menu imprinted on the side, so you don't have to dig through tech manuals to find the proper pressure levels for your weight and terrain.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 130 Boost Fork - 29/27.5+ RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 130 Boost Fork - 29/27.5+
Matching your trail or all-mountain frame's versatility with a fork that can keep up is the only way to truly see what your bike can do, and RockShox's 29/27. 5+ Pike RCT3 Solo Air 130 Boost Fork blends versatility with the streamlined style the Pike has always been known for. As this is the 130mm version, it leans a little further towards the trail side of things, but with today's trail frames exhibiting XC nimbleness paired with burly, all-mountain capabilities, the lines of distinction are blurred, at best. Now built with Boost compatibility, the Pike RCT3 can also be set up with the high attack angle of 29in wheels or with a dose of added plushness from 27. 5+, and switching your hoops out daily, yearly, or never won't affect its functionality. It's also built with the simplicity and 130mm of bump-devouring cush of RockShox's efficient Solo Air spring. The RCT3 damper spans Open, Pedal, and Lock modes, so it can handle everything from fire roads to steep, punishing climbs to tumultuous, rock-lined descents. RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature is also included here, which keeps the Pike feeling hungry after successive hits and hand-numbing stretches of unrelenting bumps, helping it stay high in its travel so that it can recover quickly to maintain cushion during the unexpected. RockShox paid carefully attention to the chassis design for its prized Pike line, and the Pike RCT3 received reinforced lower legs and oversized bushings, which stiffen it while managing to keep stanchion size the same. Any excess or unnecessary weight was carefully carved out of the chassis to balance weight with stiffness, and RockShox thoughtfully includes a PSI menu printed on the side of the Pike to keep pre-ride adjustments from taking away too much of your time on the trails.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 140 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 140 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in
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.

Like a British secret agent with discerning taste in formalwear and cocktails, the Pike blends style and grace with turns of occasional, unapologetic brutishness delivered in the form of six capable inches of travel. Tipping the scales with cross-country lightness and delivering a forward-thinking Boost-compatible design, this Pike RCT3 will work with both the trusty 29in wheels in your garage or the new 27. 5+ you can't wait to take out on the trails. Using Solo Air, this version of the Pike ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 150mm travel position, saving you about 50g of weight and unnecessary complexity. The Charger damper's adjustability still gives you room to spin the pedals without feeling bogged down on a climb, allowing you to choose between Open, Pedal, and Lock modes, but Solo Air truly shows its strength on the steepest pitches and most destructive descents you can convince yourself to steer your bike into. When you're dialing settings on the three-position charger damper, Open will let you enjoy discreet amounts of low-speed compression, while Pedal and Lock are pre-tuned for a plush platform that keeps moving across unyielding trail decor and maintains speed on smooth climbs and fire road transitions. You'll also get the benefit of RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature, which keeps the Pike hungry after successive hits and hand-numbing stretches of repetitive bumps, ensuring it stays high in its travel and recovers quickly to maintain cushion when you pick the wrong line.

If the six-inch fork market is a fruit vendor's cart on the set of a mid-90s action flick, then the Pike RCT3 Solo Air 150 Fork is the 26-inch leading element of a high speed chase. Ever since it arrived on the scene, the Pike has been blowing up expectations for what an enduro fork can do, and this particular hot rod's six inches of travel and 26-inch wheel size make it ideal for redefining established lines by combining the brute, bottomless force of six-inch travel with the agility of 26-inch wheels in order to rethink what's possible. The Solo Air fork ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 150mm travel position. You lose the ability to drop the front end of your bike by a couple of centimeters to make it more aggressive on the climbs, but for some, the extra weight saved (about 50 grams) and the complexity saved is worth it. While still a comfortable climber, thanks to the Charger damper's adjustability, the Solo Air really shines on the steepest and most technical downhills you can stomach. That's not to suggest the Pike is as inflexible as the anti-cavalry spear-like weapon for which it may very well be named. Its settings can be dialed by the three-position RCT3 charger damper, which lets you choose discreet amounts of low-speed compression in the Open mode.

Of course, the Pike wouldn't be in the pole position of the six-inch travel game if it were rigidly un-adjustable. Depending on the terrain you're climbing up or dropping in to, the fork's settings can be dialed by the three-position RCT3 switch, which lets you choose discreet amounts of lockout for bigger hits, trail terrain, or cross-country speed. RockShox's Rapid Recovery feature indulges the Pike's terrain-gobbling tendencies by keeping recovery between hits short, so you'll always have that cushion, even during multiple successive bumps.

RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 160 Fork - 27.5in RockShox Pike RCT3 Solo Air 160 Fork - 27.5in
There's a reason why the top manufacturers continue to optimize their 27. 5in enduro racing frames' geometries for RockShox's Pike RCT3 Solo Air 160 Fork. And that's because, as far as we're concerned, RockShox has optimized the trade-off between all-mountain trail riding and climbing and the big-hit, big-line requirements of a modern enduro race sled. Between details like the stiff interface between the Power Bulge bushings and the Maxle Ultimate axle to the customizable properties of the damper and air spring, the Pike RCT3 continues to set the bar when it comes to holding lines on descents and holding gaps on climbs. The Solo Air fork ditches the adjustability of the Dual Position Air version in favor of a single 150mm travel position. You lose the ability to drop the front end of your bike by a couple of centimeters to make it more aggressive on the climbs, but for some, the extra weight saved (about 50 grams) and the complexity saved is worth it.

RockShox RS-1 ACS Solo Air 100 Fork - 27.5in RockShox RS-1 ACS Solo Air 100 Fork - 27.5in
For RockShox to name its new top-shelf XC fork after the legendary RS-1 -- the fork that started it all -- it's immediately evident that SRAM considers the new fork something special. At a glance, you can see that the RS-1 ACS Solo Air 100 is a completely new direction in fork design. The decision to manufacture the fork as part of a fork/wheel system, dubbed "Predictive Steering," lent to the success of the RS-1 ACS, which was in product development for over three years. RockShox wasn't going to compromise between "good and heavy" or "lightweight and flexible." With advances in carbon technology and a very large and stiff 27mm tubular axle, it didn't have to.The RS-1 ACS is configured to 100mm of travel. Weight-wise it is 1646 grams (3. 6lbs) -- incredibly light for an inverted design. Beyond those few "standards," RockShox didn't follow any rules when designing the fork. The tapered steerer tube and crown are a single piece of carbon, which is then bonded to carbon legs. The aluminum threads house the new remote-lockout Accelerator cartridge damper and Solo air-spring. Moving down from the carbon crown and legs, the Fast-Black coated stanchions are 32mm wide. Because of the inverted nature of the fork, the stanchions slide effortlessly -- the oil, being above the bushings, provides constant lubrication.Although the carbon fork is stiff and durable, RockShox wanted to ensure that the robustness extended through to the steering and that flex would not be an issue when railing a banked turn. To that end, working with SRAM, it created a hollow 27mm Torque Tube axle that works in conjunction with a standard 15mm thru-axle. The Torque Tube spans the distance between the dropout faces with no endcaps. This means that once the Maxle is tightened, the serrated ends "grip" the dropouts. This effectively makes the axle and thereby the wheel, a structural part of the fork. This system was given the name "Predictive Steering" and it keeps the stanchion tubes locked in place. .

RockShox RS-1 ACS Solo Air 120 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in RockShox RS-1 ACS Solo Air 120 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in
The first thing you'll notice about the RockShox RS-1 ACS Solo Air 120 (51mm Offset) 29er Fork is that its upside-down, tradition-challenging design looks markedly different than other forks out there. While it may be rebellious in looks, this fork packs a whopping combination of stiffness, small bump compliance, rebound recovery, and efficiency that puts many other more traditional-looking forks to shame. The 51mm offset makes for more rake, reducing wheel flop and boosting handling for navigating techy terrain in tight quarters. The super stiff carbon fiber upper on the RS-1 provides nearly unmatchable stiffness, while the flipped orientation nearly eliminates fork flex for a responsive, snappy feel. This fork also features the firmest lockout of the entire RockShox line, which comes in extra handy when you need every watt to jump out of a corner or sprint past the competition. Another benefit to the flipped design is smoother stanchion movement across the travel range. The lower stanchion placement takes advantage of gravity's constant pressure, ensuring that the seals are always bathed in oil for friction-free movement. This increases small bump compliance to keep your tire in contact with the trail, providing extra traction to power up over obstacles. Paired with a Rapid Recovery valve that rebounds quickly after full impacts to prepare for the next hit, the fork's inverted design gives you a smooth, controlled ride through even the most jarring terrain. The RS-1 includes the RockShox Accelerator damping system with Dig Valve compression to fight off bobbing and turn every pedal stroke into forward motion. The Solo Air spring features an easy-to-tune design with a single Schrader valve controlling air adjustment to fill the negative and positive chambers at the same time, resulting in perfectly balanced chambers without any additional tuning. The feel of the spring is customizable in a snap with RockShox's Bottomless Tokens that adjust the chamber volume ...

RockShox SID RLC Solo Air 100 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in RockShox SID RLC Solo Air 100 (51mm Offset) Fork - 29in
Those of us who appreciate the beauty of a streamlined, lightweight design in search of cross-country zen will naturally be drawn to componentry like the RockShox SID RLC Solo Air 100 (51mm Offset) 29in Fork. Deftly balancing efficient stiffness and lightweight speed, this fork urges you to push the boundaries of the course.This particular version of the SID RLC adds a hint of rake to decrease the bike's trail and increase confidence through low-speed finesse sections of trail. It also reduces "dead" space between the hub and the steering axis, which counters the squiggly, low-speed steering issues that often accompany the longer trails produced by taller wheels and slack geometries. Handling stays razor sharp at all speeds, whether climbing, descending, or deftly navigating tricky terrain.The SID RLC boasts a bit of a redesign over its predecessors, with a reshaped chassis focused on gram-saving efficiency. RockShox keeps the specifics of the redesign under wraps, but claims it adds rigidity across the chassis while reducing weight, and the straight-wall aluminum stanchions and magnesium lowers each do their part to add lightness and durability.Within the suspension, a whole host of RockShox's proprietary technologies work with the SID RLC's 100mm of travel, including its Charger Damper which lends the fork its plush, smooth response as you take it over rock-encrusted singletrack. The aptly named Rapid Recovery design works with the fork's Dig Valve to improve the SID RLC's ability to rebound after successive hits on root-laced climbs and rutted out trail, and the option to add RockShox's Bottomless Tokens to the fork's interior gives you further license to fine-tune the ramp-up and limit your likelihood of bottoming-out.Finally, the SID RLC's air spring itself, Solo Air, continues to be designed for ease-of-use.

This model adds a hint of rake to decrease the bike's trail and make low-speed finesse sections more manageable. The result is less "dead" space between hub and the steering axis, which offsets the floppy, low-speed steering issues that arise from the longer trails produced by today's slacker geometries and taller wheels. Handling stays 26er-sharp at all speeds, whether climbing, shredding, or cleaning switchbacks and tricky terrain.The SID's Solo Air spring features an easy-to-tune design with a single Schrader valve that controls air adjustment for both chambers. The feel of the spring is also customizable with RockShox's Bottomless Tokens, which alter the chamber's effective volume and compression curve to meet individual ramp-up preferences. While the Solo Air spring lets you adjust the fork for more trail-oriented terrain, the Power Bulges on the lower bushings ensure the SID is always ready to do what an XC bike is meant to do: attack and open up a gap on the climbs.

With wagon-wheel offset, four-inches of Solo Air travel, a remote damper switch, and a generous dose of carbon fiber, the RockShox SID World Cup Solo Air 100 Boost Fork with a Remote and 51mm Offset is the XC weapon of choice for 29in or 27. 5+ riders looking for every advantage over the competition. The fork's defining element is its myopia; it's focused on nothing but speed through features like the pedal-proof, XC-tuned Charger Damper and the reduced grams of knocked-out dropouts and a carbon fiber steerer. The Charger Damper rewards hammering but doesn't entail a pedaling penalty while transitioning from downhill to climbing, and the dual-chamber air shock eliminates coil springs altogether, enhancing the fork's XC pedigree by making it, in RockShox's estimation, "the lightest weight air spring on the market." Though it's dual air, it only requires one Schrader valve, so air pumps into both chambers simultaneously to maintain balance. The 51mm of offset further encourage balance by reducing the tendency for 29in hoops to wander on climbs, and a redesigned oil circuit ups mid-stroke support and keeps the fork riding high and eager across successive bumps.
