For the ultimate in trail riding characteristics and performance, RockShox’s RCT3 has open (full-travel) and lockout settings, plus a threshold mode. This is a platform setting that stiffens the initial part of the stroke, helping increase pedaling efficiency. When you hit a bump, the damper opens and allows full travel, then returns to threshold mode once the trail smooths out.
RockShox’s Charger damper features a sealed rubber bladder that expands when the fork is compressed, so oil and air stay separate, virtually eliminating any chance of foaming or bubbles in the system. What does this mean? It means the fork rides higher in the travel, in the plushest part of the stroke, preserves the bike's geometry, and recovers from hits quickly, all while maintaining incredibly consistent damping, no matter how long the downhill.
