New crown, new immersion tubes, new dropouts - now even lighter, stiffer and with an ultra-focused XC chassis. New Charger damper, new 100 millimeter air spring. This is the new SID RLC. The SID is a fork specially designed to meet the demanding requirements of cross-country and marathon competitions. Thanks to the Tourque Caps, the intuitive lockout control and a highly tunable Solo Air air chamber, it has improved steering precision.
Air suspension manuals
Rockshox prints air suspension manuals for all their air suspension forks. They may not be a technological feat, but they allow you to set up your suspension in seconds instead of minutes. And more time on your bike means more opportunities to become the mountain king on your favourite route. Maybe this is a technological feat.
Charger Damper 2
The evolution of the highly acclaimed Charger damper - the most advanced RockShox technology to date - takes its performance and sophistication to a whole new level. The new damping design allows more extensive adjustment of the low-speed compression stage in open mode and a more effective pedalling mode, which is particularly effective on hilly trails.
RockShox has redesigned the rebound piston to accommodate the Dig-Valve. It provides optimum control for the low and high speed compression stages and carefully regulates the oil flow so that the driver always has the right suspension and shock absorption. The newly developed piston allows the use of Rapid Recovery, a rebound setting that allows the damper to return to its original position more quickly after successive impacts - for better traction and a more controlled ride.
The OneLoc remote gives you full control over your suspension fork with just one finger movement. The improved lever action on the handlebars makes operation much easier. Thanks to the numerous mounting options (left or right, above or below the handlebar), the OneLoc fits seamlessly into all other control elements and complements itself perfectly with SRAM circuits, brakes or reverb controls.
If you need more strength in your forearms for better control, hit the gym. If you want to make your suspension fork more durable however, you can do that with the Power Bulge. Other manufacturers simply increase the downpipe size and bring more weight into play. Power Bulge, on the other hand, simply reinforces the fork legs for extra-large guidance. This increases stiffness and ensures maximum riding comfort. Besides, it's Power Bulge.
Who doesn't want a greater travel for successive shots? Thanks to the Rapid Recovery System, the damper returns to its original position more quickly after successive strokes, allowing the wheel to grip the ground more precisely. This more active damping system won’t fail and provides a ride with higher and softer spring hardness. With Rapid Recovery, the rider benefits from greater suspension travel for a smoother and more controlled ride on every shot.
Solo Air is like a Buddhist monk. The enlightened design allows the positive and negative air chambers of your suspension forks to be filled with air simultaneously via just one car valve. So there is a perfect balance between them, like Yin and Yang. For a comfortable and predictable ride, you can adjust the lightest suspension fork on the market in seconds.
If you don’t adjust your damping correctly, you may as well be riding a foreign bike. But why waste plastic clips or rulers to adjust the suspension again and again? The damping markings are printed directly on the stanchions of the suspension fork and the damper housing for easy and accurate adjustment of the perfect suspension. So you can return the plastic clip and ruler to your mother.
Torque Caps strengthen the connection between the hub and the fork dropout by increasing the surface area that connects the two. This creates a stronger and stiffer interface that gives you better feedback and more control. So you can concentrate on the most important connection: The one between your bike and the trail.
BOOST is a new wheel and component specification that offers improved frame geometry with shorter chainstays, wider and harder suspension, a greater number of chainring options, more room for wider tyres and increased wheel stiffness and robustness.
