RockShox Totem RC2 DH Solo Air 160mm Fork 2012
Think of the nastiest line in your trail network. You know, the one that was rumored to have been ridden by a certain pro that came to town to film years ago. It takes a certain type of rider to hit a line like that. And the Totem was built for that rider. With its stiff-as-all-hell 40mm chassis, 180 millimeters of buttery smooth travel, and take-no-prisoners attitude, the Totem isn’t just the burliest single-crown fork RockShox makes — it’s one of the burliest single-crown forks anyone makes.
With RockShox' easy-to-understand guides for tuning air spring suspension printed right on the fork, setting up suspension to match a rider and enhance his or her riding style takes a matter of seconds.
Suspension shouldn't pack up in rock gardens or buck after big drops. That's why Dual Flow incorporates independent damping circuits, allowing separate rebound speeds for big hits and small ones. A user-adjustable knob controls the beginning-stroke (small-hit) rebound, and a factory-set ending-stroke (big-hit) rebound creates the perfect suspension for whatever the trail (or park) throws your way. Now tuning your suspension for your unique needs is as easy as a clockwise or counterclockwise turn.
The coil spring is a simple, time-tested design with a smooth feel characterized by a linear spring curve.
Long Travel Solo Air
Employs their patented floating negative chamber to optimize the spring curve for long travel forks, providing a consistent feel throughout the travel.
The tool-free Maxle Lite brings exceptional stiffness and durability to your ride in the lightest, easiest-to-use thru axle system on the market.
Mission Control DH
They have taken the plush and bombproof design of Mission Control and traded out the threshold for a high-flow compression piston to optimize descent-oriented bump performance. High- and low-speed compression and Dual Flow rebound controls are right at your fingertips, because when you're riding downhill, every second matters.
Material reinforcement in the lower leg at the bushing increases stiffness and bushing durability.
Properly set sag can make or break the way suspension feels, so why should it be configured by eyeballing a zip tie? With this feature, sag percentage gradients are provided on the fork upper tubes and shock damper body, making perfect suspension setup simple, easy and accurate.
Through a simple port on the lower leg of the fork, the Speed Lube system allows crazy quick lower leg oil replacement without ever having to pull the fork apart. Maintaining your own fork just got that much easier.
