RockShox has been busy. With the transition from Dual Air to Solo Air, filling out the 27.5 line, the all-new Vivid and Vivid Air shocks, the affordable 30 Gold line of forks and now the re-introduction of the Pike line for bikes of all wheel sizes (26, 27.5 and 29). The competition with Fox Racing for suspension dominance continues as strong as ever with each one out-duking the other at every turn.

2014 RockShox Pike Fork

The first version of the Pike was a solid platform, but ended up getting lost in the Reba/Revelation shuffle. The all-new Pike has a ton of features going for it that help solidify its placement in the lineup. Looks like your long-travel trailbike may now have a new BFF.
