PIKE OWNERS REJOICE!
RockShox set the benchmark for how a suspension fork should feel and ride when they launched the Pike. Suspension technology has only progressed from there, especially in terms of how big the negative spring can be to keep forks supple at the top of the stroke.
“The Pike and the Fox 34 all had big negative air chambers when released a few years ago, to be more supple,” says suspension whiz Aiden Lefmann of Cyclinic. “Over time, suspension experts have realised that they can pull volume from the positive chamber to add to the negative chamber to gain even more sensitivity.” And RockShox have a very cost-effective DebonAir kit to bring current suspension performance to forks that are a few years old – even a Pike from 2014. For $69.95 this airshaft could be the best upgrade you could make for your fork.
Speak to your RockShox dealer about pricing, but this upgrade will not only improve sensitivity at the top of the stroke, but also stability in the midstroke. Why not get more out of your Yari, Lyrik, Pike or Boxxer?
