Today RockShox releases the new Lyrik, thus explaining all of the athletes with Red forks at the early races lately (don’t worry, it’s available in black)…Additionally, they’ve updated the Pike, Yari and Deluxe shock line and also introduced a fender plus some other bits. There’s a slew of information for you to pick over below, but here’s the short and sweet…

Debonair for forks – larger volume negative spring and a re-designed air spring shaft make for lighter off the top action with bountiful support in the mid-stroke. The updated air spring will be available aftermarket.

Charger 2 Damper – The new Charger 2 damper features external low AND high speed compression adjustment, in addition to external rebound adjustment. With improved sensitivity and a lighter weight, the Charger 2 is available aftermarket to retrofit to existing forks.

New offsets – All forks will be available in 27.5/29″ wheel sizes for Boost spacing only, but will feature 37mm and 46mm offsets in 27.5″ and 42mm and 51mm offsets for 29″

Fenders and updated Deluxe rear shock line – Lastly, RockShox announced a new fender to play nice with their forks as well as minor updates to the rear shocks, including a refined shaft surface treatment and expanded rebound adjustments.

RockShox LYRIK RC2

Enduro stages are steeper, longer and meaner than ever before, and Lyrik RC2 is here to humble them. The new Charger™ 2 RC2 damper offers independent high and low speed compression adjustment to make molehills out of mountains. The new DebonAir™ air spring reduces friction from every single moving part, improving bump absorption and response under load, and drastically reducing rider fatigue. New, shorter offset options make Lyrik RC2 compatible with the confidence-inspiring (and smile-inducing) machines being dreamed up by bike designers around the world.

  • New graphics with a BoXXer Red fork color option

RockShox PIKE RCT3

When RockShox re-launched Pike in 2013, it immediately became the benchmark for Trail and Enduro forks, with a supple and progressive feel that simply could not be matched. To ensure Pike’s continuing domination of the class, we put it on a weight-loss program, added the new Charger™ 2 damper, included remote options, and gave it a graphic-package makeover that aligns with the all-new chassis design. Riders will benefit from Pike’s increased steering authority – thanks to BOOST™-only spacing, stiffness and lighter overall weight – the new friction-reducing DebonAir™ air spring and the potential to run wider (2.8″) tires.

  • New friction-reducing DebonAir™ air spring delivers the most responsive forks and rear shocks in RockShox history, maintaining traction in more conditions than ever before

RockShox Deluxe RT3

First, we took the proven damping performance of our popular Monarch series and introduced it to a new metric-sized chassis. Increased bushing overlap, a new bushing design and a new scraper seal decreased friction and increased durability. Now we’ve changed the interior surface to improve lubrication and accelerate piston movement – further friction reductions that keep the tires firmly planted on the ground. Again the result is Deluxe. Are you ready to redefine your ride?

FEATURES / BENEFITS

  • New DebonAir™ friction reductions match RockShox’s forks and improve traction
  • 3-position compression adjustment (Open/Pedal/Lock)
  • External rebound damping adjustment
