First of its kind! RockShox started with the features you've come to love from them: Fast Black aluminum upper tubes, stout 15x150 mm Maxle, remote or crown adjustable damping, tapered steerer tube, and the infinitely tunable Solo Air spring. Then, the chassis got the fat treatment by reengineering it to meet the unique needs of fat tires and wheels. Everything from crown, to arch, to axle has been optimized to tackle the increased torsional loads of its wide stance. Tire clearance up to 121 mm (4.8") is given.
- Solo Air
Solo Air is like a Buddhist monk. Its enlightened design lets you add air to your forks through a single Schrader valve, filling both the positive and negative air spring chambers simultaneously. So they're always in perfect equilibrium, like Yin and Yang. Giving you a plush, predictable ride you can set up in seconds, with the lightest weight air spring on the market.
- Rapid Recovery
Who doesn't want more available wheel travel for successive hits? The Rapid Recovery System allows the shock to recovery faster between consecutive bumps, letting the wheel track the ground with greater precision. This more active suspension system, doesn't pack up and enables the bike to ride in a higher and softer part of the spring rate. Rapid Recovery gives the rider access to more available wheel travel, bump after bump, to achieve a smoother and more controlled ride.
- Motion Control
Imagine riding on the moon. Rolling hills, crushed rock blasted out of craters craters. There's no gravity so you wouldn't even need a chairlift. Unfortunately you can't ride on the moon. There's lots of gnarly terrain on earth. But, earth has gravity so you'll need suspension that climbs as well as it descends. With Motion Control damper technology you'll do just that. You can't ride on the moon, but with Motion Control you can make gravity your bitch.
- Sag Gradients
Don't set your sag correctly, and you might as well be hopping onto someone else's bike. But why bust out plastic clips or rulers to keep your suspension fine-tuned? RockShox sag gradients are printed right on the fork's upper tubes making perfect suspension setup easy and accurate.
- Bottomless Tokens
With the optional tokens (volume-spacer) the air volume of the fork can be reduced so the spring characteristic curve can be influenced. A smoother suspension with higher end-progression is achieved.
The new OneLoc remote provides total control over your suspension at your fingertips. The increased leverage at the bar, translate in a smoother and easier actuation. Its countless mounting options (left and right, below or above the bar, tall or standard clamp) make it an ideal companion for SRAM's drivetrain, brakes and RockShox's Reverb remote.
With more traction and control than ever before, you'll never be happier you went fat.
