The completely redesigned PIKE comes murdered-out for a reason. It's ushering in a new era in suspension performance. See, the all-new PIKE is a completely different type of trail fork. One that meant walking all over the current engineering doctrine along the way. The result? PIKE is like a stealth bomber designed specifically for new-school trail riders. Its new damper rides high in the travel where it’s the plushest. Its industry redefining asymmetric approach to chassis design delivers an unparalleled stiffness to travel to weight ratio that will have other engineers playing catch up for years. So put one on your bike. Then your riding buddies will get to play catch up too.
Keep your fork performing like new with regular cleaning and maintenance. Take a look at our comprehensive selection of lubes, cleaners and fork fluid here.

I had my eyes on this beauty ever since it was redesigned in 2013 and have read the countless rave reviews and wondered how good can this fork really be. I already had a Lyrik 160mm solo air decked out with the DH rebound and compression mission control dampers so I already knew what an awesome do it all fork is all about. Then the Pike came along and totally rocked my world! It's plush and can handle the big hits without breaking a sweat and the RCT3 damper is so simple and easy to dial in your preferred tune in no time. The brake anti-dive properties are amazing! The fork stays high in the travel even when braking on stair stepped terrain. Rockshox has a winner right here and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a lightweight stiff chassis fork that can take some punishment and still be super plush for any ride. I'm glad PridePoint had a sweet deal I couldn't refuse which allowed me to get this awesome fork!
