Super Deluxe Coil

RockShox just announced a new line of coil sprung Super Deluxe rear shocks for 2018. At the moment they’re being listed as “OEM only with selected AM options to be announced”. What’s most interesting is the option of a lockout that can be actuated from the bar, perhaps the first of its kind in the coil sprung world. Enduro racers take note…

Super Deluxe Coil RC World Cup

Also announced is a Super Deluxe Coil RC World Cup for DH racing. Oddly enough it just has one rebound and one compression adjustment so we’re wondering if more will be added to this line and it will completely replace the Vivid shocks, or if it’s a seperate line altogether. RockShox also announced an entry level Super Deluxe Coil R. Interesting details on this new shock are:

  • Native metric design
  • Consistent, coil-spring performance
  • Independently tunable compression circuits/checked rebound
  • Mounting options: trunnion mount, bearing mount, Standard DU.

Looks like we could be seeing trunnion mounts and metric sizing in the DH world soon?

Deluxe/Super Deluxe

Last but not least, the Deluxe and Super Deluxe also received some upgrades as well. The option for the 2-position, remote lockout as well as a full travel indicator etched into the shock body are the main updates in addition to new graphics.

ROCKSHOX REAR SHOCKS’ DELUXE AND SUPER DELUXE PRESS RELEASE

March 2, 2017

SUPER DELUXE COIL

IN 2016 ROCKSHOX REVOLUTIONIZED REAR SHOCKS’ DESIGN WITH DELUXE AND SUPER DELUXE

THE REVOLUTION CONTINUES WITH SUPER DELUXE COIL

“LEAN BACK AND HANG ON”

   

COIL FOR ALL

Super Deluxe allowed us to ditch old design constraints, and simply focus on building the best possible rear shock. And with that old thinking no longer holding us back, we began to wonder why coil-shock performance had to be limited to purely downhill and enduro applications and why there should be any pedaling compromise associated with a coil shock.

NO OPTION SPARED

In the words of a famous enduro racer, “Lean back and hang on,” because the all-new Super Deluxe Coil brings the consistency and feel of a coil sprung shock to trail and enduro bikes, and the benefits of metric design to downhill bikes. And with remote-lockout options, riders can capitalize on pedaling power anywhere, not just on fireroads.

SAG GRADIENTS – COIL SETUP

All Super Deluxe Coil models feature sag gradients printed on the shaft to facilitate the correct setup.

Steel springs will be available from RockShox in 50 lbs increments from 250 to 650, depending on length.

SUPER DELUXE COIL RCT

Solid Threshold adjustment for pedaling performance, low speed compression adjustment to fine tune the ride to any trail and condition, the unmistakable feel of a coil spring and RockShox’s Super Deluxe design. A unique blend that’s now a reality, to push the benefits of coil shocks to bold new places.
