Pike

Using a 35mm chassis, new crown, 15×100 axle, and tapered steerer. They created a new Charger damper system (bladder charged system).

CHARGER DAMPER
Simply put, the all-new Charger damper we developed for PIKE is the most refined damper RockShox has ever produced. It’s a bladder-charged damper, which means it has consistent performance even during the longest, hardest descents, plus it allows complete control for the trail with open, pedal and lock positions (RCT3 version). A Rapid Recovery rebound circuit completes what many testers have described as the “best RockShox fork ever made.”
