One of the best in class, just got betterTo remain one of the best performing trail forks on the market the RockShox Pike Ultimate is equipped with the completely re-tuned Charger™ 2.1 damper that allows the fork to ride higher in travel on compression while keeping the tires planted to the ground on rebound for unmatched control. To improve overall fork performance, RockShox has included SKF wiper and damper cartridge seals, and Maxima Plush fluid to reduce friction.
Furthermore riders will benefit from Pike’s increased steering authority —thanks to BOOST™-only spacing, stiffness and lighter overall weight and the potential to run wider (2.8") tires.
With the Pike Ultimate RockShox offers a light and excellently performing fork with stiff, fast black 35 mm straight wall aluminium stanchions. The integrated bolt on cable stop allows for neat routing of the brake hose.

Technologies of the RockShox Pike Ultimate Charger 2.1 RC2 Debon Air 27.5+/29" Fork:
BoostWith revolutionary advancements in bicycle componentry, like SRAM's XX1, X01 and X1 drivetrains, mountain bike designers have been given almost limitless freedom to focus solely on the performance of the bike. Each advancement demands that the entire package works flawlessly. Aggressive trail and enduro riders have been increasingly enjoying the benefits of larger wheels, but many still view 27.5" and 29" wheels as a possible weak link. Which is why SRAM has developed an open standard with Boost compatible components for SRAM drivetrain, hubs and RockShox forks.
Debon AirIt is ok to be soft. Debon Air is not ashamed to give way under the weakest push. In fact, it makes shocks plusher than ever, right from the start. It might seem a weakness, until you take DebonAir to the trail. The connection between your bike and the terrain will be seamless, as your DebonAir equipped shock absorbs every little hit without any harsh feeling on your body. A shock so soft, you can push way harder.
MORE LINEAR SPRING CURVE
Lower force levels to move the shock into its travel 1st 1/3 of travel is what riders are most sensitive to.
MORE TRACTION AND CONTROL
No chop on initial hit. Better traction; rear wheel stays on the ground reacting to small bumps.
Charger 2 DampingThe evolution of the acclaimed Charger, RockShox’s most advanced damper, brings a whole new level of performance and refinement for each intended use.
The Charger 2 damper designs provides a wider range of low speed compression adjustment in the Open mode, with a more usable Pedal setting that excels on rolling trails.
Rapid RecoveryWho doesn't want more available wheel travel for successive hits? The Rapid Recovery System allows the shock to recover 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 travel. Rapid Recovery gives the rider access to more available wheel travel, bump after bump, to achieve a smoother and more controlled ride.
Sag GradientsDon'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.
Power BulgeWhen you need your forearms to be stronger for more control, you bulk them up in the gym. When you need more durability from your fork, bulk them up with Power Bulge. Other companies just increase the stanchion size adding extra weight. Power Bulge simply reinforces the lower leg to allow for an oversized bushing, increasing stiffness and maximizing your ride. Plus, it's called Power Bulge.
Bottomless TokensWith the optional tokens (volume-spacer) the fork's air volume can be reduced to customize the spring rate characteristics. More supple performance with higher ramp up towards the end of the travel is achieved.
