RockShox announce all new Pike with updates to Lyrik, Yari, Revelation and RS-1

RockShox have revealed an all new Pike fork featuring an updated Charger damper and a larger Debonair negative air spring. Along with the new Pike, RockShox have also updated the Lyrik, Yari, Revelation, and RS-1 forks. You can find all the details in the press release below.

Pike



Charger 2 Damper


The evolution of the acclaimed Charger, RockShox’s most advanced damper, brings a whole new level of performance and refinement for each intended use. The new damper design provides a wider range of low speed compression adjustment in the Open mode, with a more usable Pedal setting that excels on rolling trails. The Firm setting on Pike and Lyrik has been re-tuned, and remote options with OneLoc provide on-the-fly access to the Firm mode and are an excellent match with RockShox Deluxe, Super Deluxe and Super Deluxe Coil remote rear shocks.

Debonair


A larger negative air spring resulting in plusher suspension. An intuition born on RockShox’s rear shocks back in 2014 is now a benchmark for superior small bump and traction performance. No longer only reserved to rear shocks, RockShox’s DebonAir air springs complement the trail smoothing performance of many forks in our product range. And while incredibly smooth in the first 1/3 of travel, DebonAir forks and shocks still provide the consistent mid-stroke support that riders know and love.

The benchmark, redefined


Pike has redefined the standard by which all trail and enduro forks are judged, and is poised to keep doing so for many years to come with a completely new chassis, which enables a weight reduction of almost 150g. A new Charger 2 damper is now compatible with RockShox’s OneLoc remote for on-the-fly compression adjustments, and a perfect match to Deluxe and Super Deluxe rear shocks. The new DebonAir air spring enhances small bump sensitivity and mid-stroke support. Pike’s travel options are up to 160mm for 27.5” and 140mm for 29” with room for tires up to 2.8” on both models.

 

Pike RCT3 – RCT Remote


The new RCT3 Charger 2 damper provides a wider range of low speed compression adjustment in the Open mode, while the Pedal mode has been re-tuned for excellent trail support. The firm setting has also been re-tuned to better match RockShox rear shocks, with OneLoc compatibility which allows on-the-fly suspension control.

 

MSRP: 875-1000$, 970-1100€, 825-940£

Much of niceness. Lekker options for budget builds too with the new Rev and the updated Yari.

"Oh, and if you already have a Pike, depending on the model year, you can upgrade to a Charger 2 damper and DebonAir spring, and you’ll have everything but the chassis weight savings and stiffness gain."

I notice that the Maxle lite quick release is not there anymore and that the dual air is gone as well.

Me thinks the RS-1 is a dead product, what with most of the pro XC teams going to the SID and Fox SC.

lechatnoir, Apr 14 2017 07:09

saw the review on GMBN and they said the new Pike was boost only. That true?

 

Edit: looks like it IS true...

Essentially the SID sids next to the RS-1 and it makes sense for the PRO teams to ride that in the first year of it's launch. Especially with several updates coming to the RS-1. Suppose time will tell which way the market will go.

True, yes. But you can buy the upgrade damper to retrofit to your current fork.

Prices on the kit is going to be interesting.
