To 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.
