Description

RockShox's Pike RCT3 Dual Position Air is the ultimate fork for all-mountain and enduro riding. Burly 35mm stanchions, magnesium lowers, and a lightweight hollow-forged aluminum crown deliver supreme stiffness with 150 or 160mm of travel to rip down the toughest enduro courses. When the hits are coming hard and fast, RockShox's Charger damper keeps the fork high in the travel to maintain your bike's geometry, all while soaking up everything from flowy dirt ribbons to crazy rock-strewn goat paths. Goat paths to mellow transition stages, the RCT3 three-position switch changes between full travel, lockout, and threshold modes, and the Dual Position Air spring lets you drop the travel to 120mm, so you can save your legs on the ascents, and then open it up to pin the next timed downhill.

Features & Info

Charger damper

RockShox's Charger Damper

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.

RCT3

RockShox RCT3 Damper

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.
